WWE CEO Vince McMahon may be upset over WrestleMania XXX creative plans. A recent report from Eric Arrington of DailyWrestlingNews.com claims that McMahon is not happy with the way WrestleMania XXX is shaping up. Apparently, none of the matches McMahon wants are set-in-stone for the event at this time, and he is getting extremely hard to deal with backstage.
Some of the matches and attractions that McMahon wants for WrestleMania XXX aren’t coming together because of the lack of commitment from certain superstars. McMahon wants former WWE Champion The Rock to compete at the event, but he won’t agree to an appearance yet. McMahon also tossed the idea of having Daniel Bryan vs. Shawn Michaels happen in New Orleans, but Michaels won’t commit to coming out of retirement for the match.
One of McMahon’s original plans for the “Authority” storyline, was to have “Stone Cold” Steve Austin vs. Triple H happen at Mania, but apparently Austin wants too much money for the company to commit to signing him for the event. Another frustrating situation for McMahon, is that the match that everyone figured was a set bout, Brock Lesnar vs. the Undertaker, may not be 100% booked either. According to this report, The Undertaker isn’t completely behind facing Lesnar at WrestleMania this year as he’s recovering from his latest surgery.
Reportedly, Bill Goldberg has gained leverage in his talks with WWE in regards to a Mania appearance because none of the above-mentioned stars have committed to being on the card. McMahon is said to be so upset and frustrated about not getting what he wants in regards to the matches he desires to be on the WrestleMania XXX card, that it’s extremely noticeable in his on-going negotiations with Goldberg.
