We reported over the weekend that a script for WrestleMania had leaked out and we posted several exclusive details from the script – including the match order as well as which announcers would be calling which matches. Some of our exclusives turned out to be not entirely accurate – and details are coming out as to why.
WWE Chairman Vince McMahon was said to be “out of his mind” during WrestleMania weekend (more than usual) and made a number of last-minute changes to the WrestleMania card.
The last-minute changes didn’t end at WrestleMania – sources report that there was a massive last-minute re-write of RAW as well on Monday afternoon. Early in the day on Monday, the plan was for The Undertaker and Triple H to have a rematch at SummerSlam and for The Undertaker to wrestle John Cena at WrestleMania 28. Apparently The Rock’s decision to wrestle John Cena at WrestleMania 28 was made just hours before the news was announced on RAW.
While The Rock’s decision to wrestle at WrestleMania 28 was not finalized until Monday – many in the company were under the impression that next year’s WrestleMania from Miami would be built around The Rock, even if he didn’t commit to wrestle. There has been talk of The Rock being inducted into the Hall of Fame next year – no word on whether those plans have been changed now that he’ll actually be wrestling in the main event.
