Ex-WWE Writer Explains Why Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins Opened WrestleMania 35


Brock Lesnar is known for going home early especially when he opens a WWE pay-per-view event. At WrestleMania 35, Lesnar lost the WWE Championship to Seth Rollins in the opening match of the gala event.

Dave Schilling, who was on the WWE creative team at the time, noted that Lesnar’s title match was actually moved from the semi-main event position so that The Beast could leave for home as early as possible.


Schilling tweeted:

“Brock and Seth was supposed to semi-main and last minute Brock changed it to the opener so he could go home early. That pushed Lashley and Finn to a spot when the crowd was flatter than a plate full of piss.”

“Oh no it’s Kurt Angle Vs Baron Corbin. When it was mentioned in a production meeting that the fans hated the idea of this match, Vince laughed so hard and said ‘f**k em.’”
