For the second consecutive Wrestlemania, Roman Reigns will walk onto The Grandest Stage of Them All as a challenger for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship after surviving the unpredictable offense of his “brother,” Dean Ambrose, as well as the raw carnage of Brock Lesnar in an insane Triple Threat Match at WWE Fastlane 2016.

Check out the main event of Fastlane here:
But the road was not smooth for him as he faced German suplexes more than anyone, a flurry of steel chairs, and obviously, F-5 from the beast incarnate. But at the end, he earned the right to face WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H at WrestleMania.
Perhaps it was his destiny to face the Game and to overcome all the odds that the Authority put against him throughout last year but you cannot take away the credits from the Big Dog. Reigns scratched and clawed every inch of the way to walk out of this one as the winner.
Here is the full result of the match:
A third German suplex may have ended things early, but Ambrose saved his friend by blasting Brock with a missile dropkick. The Lunatic Fringe then had the gall to attempt a German suplex on The Beast Incarnate. Lesnar shrugged him off like a gnat then destroyed him with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex.
With Reigns looking like easy prey, Lesnar delivered an F-5 that may have very well won him the match had Ambrose not broken up the pinfall attempt. The Lunatic Fringe, in what was unquestionably a moment of insanity, showed he really did have no fear of the monster as he disrespectfully slapped him.
The two brothers worked together to put Lesnar through a table and neutralized the beast and went right at it again. Lesnar tried one last time to get into the mix but got neutralized by chair shots from Ambrose. But with no time to spare Reigns took full advantage of a slight distraction and cut Ambrose into halves to pin him. Triple H’s music hit and he came down the aisle to lock a stare down with his WrestleMania opponent.
