We finally have to look after one another when it comes to roster choices, so I’ll update this post whenever we have more updates. For now, let’s see:
I’ve not been able to find a new WWE title contender for WWE in some time, so I’ll update this post whenever I can find it. I could have waited until later in the month or two with the news of Kane’s announcement and that the main roster could be going to Las Vegas for a final showdown with WWE, but in hindsight I felt it better to have someone put all those points together in one year than wait for it just to happen every time. That seems like it could have been done, right?
Today, after finishing two-for-two with Bret Hart, Kane said he was happy to be on the roster and that he would keep the opportunity intact for an upcoming year and possibly the WrestleMania 31 game against Samoa Joe. The news of his return was surprising, but we’ll see.
Yesterday, in an article titled “What do you think of the Future for SmackDown?” I asked Shane McMahon about being more “traditional” with his matches and just how different he thought the WWE’s traditional approach is. He ended the interview by saying “that idea of trying to evolve can be an appealing one for a lot of people and it’s something that makes me very happy.”
After the title bout at Universal Studios here with Samoa Joe, I asked whether it would help that McMahon were in front of the camera when he delivered just how the future holds. He said, “I just think there are some things that people can look back and say that will do wonders for wrestling that we could have done before. The idea of having two main competitors and the tag team or the matches where the main competitors are from different places, I don’t think it’s a big deal is there, but it’s going to come down to how the fans get to see it and it hasn’t been going that way for years. I don’t think it has to be so “my idea of evolution” then it’s going to be so much more.”
He then added that “I think the next challenge he’s on, we’re going to have to work the game together,” which would mean seeing how he played his match against The Rock, that’s what he’s going to bring to the table. And the “you’ve gotta use all your power to win the title, or you’ve to lose the match, or they can come round here, or you can go on against me. I’ll just put it this way.” But he also said that in the end the way it is, the way it works at Raw and on the big stage should help him grow because he’s looking at the future right now.
This interview just so happens to be my favorite WrestleMania interview ever. I’ve known Shane for nearly fifteen years and have worked with him at various outlets throughout his career. All the fun I’ve had in my entire life has been with him. I’m honored he brought that story to the WWE Universe by sharing it with the world. That’s really something I really care about, that it shows that wrestling is an evolving profession that is all about the growth of all forms of entertainment.
Let’s also update this post when our final match has been announced:
