Update On WWE World Heavyweight Title Plans For WrestleMania 32, Triple H Notes From Royal Rumble

- Coming out of the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view with Triple H's WWE World Heavyweight Title win, the big plan is still to have the coronation of Roman Reigns as the company's top star at WrestleMania 32.

Triple H winning the title is a part of Reigns' push and as of this week, the two were still scheduled for the main event in Dallas, according to multiple sources. Even though Reigns recently won the title, it appears WrestleMania could be the start of his first significant title reign.

We noted before that Triple H set a new record with his Rumble win - the longest time between Rumble match victories as his last win came in 2002. Here are some other stats from the win:

* Triple H became the oldest winner of the Rumble at 46 years and 6 months old, with the exception of Vince McMahon, who won the Rumble at 53 in 1999

* He joins the list of two-time Rumble winners with Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, Batista, John Cena and the only three-time winner, Steve Austin

* Triple H became the third-oldest world champion in WWE history, behind Vince at 54 in 1999 and Hulk Hogan at 48 in 2002
