Matches Announced For This Show (Keep checking back for more updates)

WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Champion John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar
Events leading to this match: WWE COO Triple H is determined to make sure that John Cena doesn't represent the company as its champion.  Plan A (Randy Orton) and Plan B (Seth Rollins) are being prevented from reaching Triple H's championship goals by Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose, respectively.  Triple H's Plan C is more impressive than his prior two plans.  Brock Lesnar hasn't wrestled since WrestleMania XXX.  At that show, he did something no other WWE superstar had done before.  He ended Undertaker's 21-0 streak at WrestleMania.
