Author reveals nixed WrestleMania 34 matches

Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins

During a recent interview with The Wrestling Estate, Jon Robinson, the author of the book Creating The Mania: An Inside Look at how WrestleMania Comes to Life revealed a couple of interesting matches that were planned for WrestleMania 34 but nixed later on.

According to him, Kevin Owens expected to face Vince McMahon at the show after his big beatdown angle with the chairman and the Usos and The New Day were hoping to square off in a TLC match.

Similarly, the company officials were planning Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins and Jason Jordan vs. Kurt Angle for the event but these matches were nixed due to Jordan and Ambrose getting injured:

“There were a lot of matches in play that could have completely changed the card, and then you hear about injuries affecting things like Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose. They were also trying to do Kurt Angle vs. Jason Jordan, but then Jordan got injured.”

After the injuries struck, Seth Rollins ended up being part of a triple threat match at WrestleMania and Kurt Angle competed in a mixed tag match.

    I not sure right now if they are face or heel. But he might end up back on Smackdown at the next Shake up or win the Royal Rumble and go to Smackdown to face the WWE Champion.

    Well this Shield stuff keeps him out of the picture for the foreseeable future. They have Shield merch to sell, so this will last awhile. The ending is pretty predictable though. The Shield will run wild for awhile until one of two groups (reunited Wyatt Family aka the 4 Horsemen of Fear or my guess a completely healthy Undisputed Era) take them down and causes one of the Shield members to get frustrated and turn on the other two.

    That injury to Dean Ambrose probably the best thing that could have happen to him. His new look probably puts him back into the WWE title picture.
