For those of you that read the site regularly and perhaps also follow a few Phillies Nation staffers on Twitter, you know that some of us are lifelong professional wrestling fanatics. Not surprisingly, some Phillies minor league players have also long enjoyed action in the squared circle as well.
This weekend marks the Super Bowl of the pro wrestling world, with WWE’s WrestleMania set to take place in California. I caught up with minor league hurler Mark Leiter Jr. along with outfield prospect Brian Pointer to get their predictions on the full card.
Here is how the two youngsters see the event shaking out along with some insight from each man on the World Champ Brock Lesnar’s part time/special attraction status with the company as well as if they each see his main event challenger Roman Reigns as a viable contender for the championship strap:
WWE World Heavyweight Title Match, Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns
Leiter- I like Reigns, but whoever wrote that ending to the (Royal) Rumble really dropped the ball. Having Big Show and Kane (remaining at the end)? Everyone knew they weren’t winning. Then the Rusev thing just was stupid. As cool as Lesnar is, it’s hard to buy a champion who only wrestles on pay per view.
Lesnar wins. Rollins then cashes in his Money in the Bank contract and loses.
Pointer- I’m a Brock Lesnar guy. I would like to see him more, but he will only come on part time. I don’t really like that because I want to see him in more matches, but when he comes on, I am pumped! And I think Reigns will be a big time superstar, but I don’t think he can match Lesnar right now. Lesnar is on a roll and it’s not stopping.
