The WWE Universe took part in one of the most historic nights in sports entertainment history on Monday February 24, 2014. Not only did the day mark the launch of the WWE Network, but it was also the night when Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker made their return to the WWE programming on Monday Night Raw.
For most of us, the night will be remembered for all the great action and the launch of the revolutionary network. For others, there is still a bit of resentment in the air after learning that Daniel Bryan will face Triple H at Wrestlemania 30, instead of being included in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship mix.
Personally, I am happy that Bryan will be not be involved in the title mix. The WWE has done a great job at handling the CM Punk situation after the straight edge wrestler walked out on the company. The WWE made sure they had more than enough options to keep the majority of the fans pleased. John Cena appeared to injure his knee on Raw during an altercation with the Wyatt Family, so we will have to wait and see how that plays into the company’s WM30 plans.
Now that we have a more clear view on how Wrestlemania will play out, I think fans should be happy. I hope that those bitter Bryan fans will not continue at their failed attempts to ruin WWE television. By now, you would figure that they finally got the message: there is no way they were ever going to force Bryan into the spotlight.
Ultimately, the WWE decided that they would just go ahead with their plans, regardless of what the fans thought. That move seems to be the right one because even with Punk down, we seem to be headed into another historic Wrestlemania event. The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar will be a great match. Fans are questioning the WWE’s decision to put Batista in the main event against Randy Orton, but I believe it will be another great match when it is all over.
Angry fans will continue to voice their displeasure, but in the end, I have full faith that the WWE will deliver on the biggest night of the year for pro wrestling fans worldwide.
