WWE and Vince McMahon are literally on their knees looking to ask one more favor from their hall of fame superstars for Wrestlemania… and it’s time that this proverbial begging ends.
Let’s catch you up first on what has been happening that compelled me to write this post.
ProWrestlingSheet.com last week reported Vince McMahon asked Dave Bautista to make an appearance at WrestleMania 32 in Texas ….According to well-placed sources, Batista traveled to Orlando Sunday for the Royal Rumble and met with Vince backstage to hear the pitch — but McMahon wasn’t looking for “The Animal” to wrestle. Our sources say Vince instead wanted him to make a one-off appearance at the annual event. So far, Batista has refused, and just maybe that might have to due to the fact that “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol.2” starts filming next month. Dave Meltzer would report that it “would have been as the guest referee of Triple H versus Reigns.”
Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin are also being looked at as options, but what does having one of these legends really do to amplify the Wrestlemania card.
No doubt Vince McMahon and the WWE is responsible for having discovered and created these superstars within their machine. But, they have given years of blood, sweat and tears for the promotion and their fans. No matter how selfish the WWE and the IWC feel entitled to have them come back at a moment’s notice, they have earned the right to not do anything.
When will WWE and Vince McMahon hit rock bottom (no pun intended) and finally come to grips that they need not look to the past to build a Wrestlemania card, especially when they will not wrestle for you, which is what the entitled casual fan and the IWC would want to fulfill their pipe dreams.
Guess this Wrestlemania season, I will not run out of short-term last minute desperation tactics to talk about when it comes to WWE booking their biggest event of the year.
