Former WWE Official Talks Booking WrestleMania XXX, Says WWE Title Unification Was Rushed

WrestleMania 30 Logo Revealed

Former WWE Official Wes Adams, has published a new column at PWMania.com. Adams goes in-depth and talks about booking WWE WrestleMania XXX, including matches for John Cena, Brock Lesnar, The Shield among others. Adams also talks on how the WWE title unification on a December “B” PPV show was rushed. Here is an excerpt from his article:

“From what I’ve read and gathered, the unification of the two world championships was rushed and lackluster. Wrestlemania XXX could and should have been the time for the unification, not a December “B” PPV show. The time to unify them was long overdue though. The brand extension has been over and done with for a while, so there is no reason for two “world” championships. The World Heavyweight Championship has been presented in such a terrible manner the past few years, that is has ceased to have any real meaning. It hasn’t been featured in the closing match of WrestleMania since 2008, and has been devalued by short title reigns, champions losing, and horrible booking of the person holding it.”

“If Cena is going to be in the main event again, at WrestleMania, which is in jeopardy now that Batista is returning, then let it be with someone else. If Orton is going to be the Authority’s “Chosen One”, then let’s have a FRESH match with another individual. There is no way that Orton vs. Cena in their 100th PPV match is going to be an earth shattering, money making pay-per-view match. And what happens to the winner of the Royal Rumble this year? If a title match is going to be set, what does the Rumble winner do? That in itself makes me feel like WWE rushed the title unification match, and had it at a random ppv, much like they did with the WWF/WCW Unification match. Mania usually sells itself, but will this match be enough for the casual fan to want to open their wallet? We’ll see. So for the second year in a row, there are more questions than answers heading into the Mania main event season.”

    Why does this article move to the top and replace new ones every other day?

      Who cares about the article’s placement… nit pick something else. This guy Wes Adams really brings up a great point. Mania is in jeopardy this year. No one wants to see Cena-Orton again. They’ve done everything two talents can do in a match… I sense a Batista-Orton match at Mania, sadly… and to me, Orton isn’t as big as Bryan with the fans. Bryan is now locked away with the Wyatts… that was a bad move by WWE. I sense they’ll make a long, dragged-out storyline that features Bryan struggling and teasing to break away from the trio, or end up leading the family and working them into a face faction. Either way, yeah… Mania XXX this year is in jeopardy unless we see Lesnar involved somehow. But then I expect a Lesnar-Undertaker match… not sure how this will all go down. The unification match should have taken place at Mania XXX this year though.

    I kinda wondered myself why they put such a hyped up match as to unify the titles at a PPV like TLC?

    It really should have been set up at Wrestlemania.
