With all of the happenings with WWE and Vince McMahon, it is hard to look ahead and focus on Wrestlemania 40 but, here we are. 40 years of any event is huge. Even if it was built largely by the demented machinations of the person being investigated and sued. If you were to tell me that we would see a formulaic attempt to recreate one of the best examples of fans making change happen I honestly would have laughed at you. Daniel Bryan (Brian Danielson) was so immensely popular that there was a tidal wave of fan support to change how WWE positioned Wrestlemania 30’s main event. Now, 10 years later, it honestly seems like we’re being led into that same situation.
Some would say that this move is a genius one as it distracts from the Grant vs WWE/McMahon/Laurinitis lawsuit. Others would say it is a desperate attempt at a cash grab. Regardless of where you stand, the road to Wrestlemania is indeed upon us and it’s up to us to decide how we handle each twist and turn.
