Agreed 100%.I maintain that WM30 should’ve been
WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Randy Orton vs Daniel Bryan vs CM Punk
John Cena vs Undertaker
Brock Lesnar vs Batista
Shield vs Wyatt Family
WWE Divas Championship:
AJ Lee vs Mickie James (sadly WWE drugged their feet on bringing Mickie back and she ended up pregnant).
WWE Tag Team Championship:
Usos vs New Age Outlaws
Triple H vs Dolph Ziggler
Andre The Giant Battle Royal
Well the seeds were planted. Remember Ambrose trying to eliminate Roman in the Royal Rumble match, and then Roman eliminating both Ambrose and Rollins from the match.Why was Daniel Bryan facing Sheamus again at mania? also very interesting to see Reigns Vs Ambrose for the united states title. (Guess they were going to break up the shield before wrestlemania 30.
Mania was beginning of April, gotg didn't come out till mid August so two shows don't connect. If Batista had walked out of mania champion getting the heat he was in January and February then mania 30 would go down alongside mania 9 in folklore.Punk vs HHH would have been a good match for sure. And as much as I loved Bryan's moment, I would love to have seen what it would be like if WWE had stuck to their guns and had Batista go over Orton. Batista was getting bigger due to the Guardians of the Galaxy hype and it would likely have given WWE good mainstream attention having their World Champion as a part of the newest MCU film.
Thats because of the WWE brand being seen as a joke to most people. Well, wrestling in general. Once the general public learned or came to accept that wrestling was scripted, it just lost more and more people as they wanted to believe it was real(or genuinely thought it was).Batista wasn't getting WWE mainstream attention. I mean he returned last year have starred in all the marvel movies and what outside attention did he bring.. it's rare an outsider brings attention to wwe, Tyson did in 98 but that's only because it was the first major thing he had done since biting Holyfields ear, Trump did to lesser extent in 2007 but most others they tried did
Cena? They slowed down on Cena being World Champion after he lost to title to Lesnar at SummerSlam (which only happened in the first place because Bryan got hurt) unless you're talking about something else.Hard to watch this for me. They screwed the pooch on Bryan from Summerslam 2013 on. Those crowd reactions were insane and they kept screwing him out of the title thoughout late 2013. Then they still had no plans for a payoff. Then Punk leaves. Which helps Bryan but then Bryan goes down and then it begins the miserable holding pattern with Brock as champion with Roman for years as the guy preordained to beat him and then later Rollins taking his spot.
Fucking Cena, Brock and Roman. It's infuriating looking back.
