Former WWE Official Talks Booking WMXXX, WWE Rushing Title Unification

Posted by Matt Boone January 4, 2014 4 Comments reader Phil Johnson sent along the following:

Former WWE Official Wes Adams, has published a new column at Adams goes in-depth and talks about booking WWE WrestleMania XXX, including matches for John Cena, Brock Lesnar, The Shield among others. Adams also talks on how the WWE title unification on a December “B” PPV show was rushed. Here is an excerpt from his article:

“From what I’ve read and gathered, the unification of the two world championships was rushed and lackluster. Wrestlemania XXX could and should have been the time for the unification, not a December “B” PPV show. The time to unify them was long overdue though. The brand extension has been over and done with for a while, so there is no reason for two “world” championships. The World Heavyweight Championship has been presented in such a terrible manner the past few years, that is has ceased to have any real meaning. It hasn’t been featured in the closing match of WrestleMania since 2008, and has been devalued by short title reigns, champions losing, and horrible booking of the person holding it.”

“If Cena is going to be in the main event again, at WrestleMania, which is in jeopardy now that Batista is returning, then let it be with someone else. If Orton is going to be the Authority’s “Chosen One”, then let’s have a FRESH match with another individual. There is no way that Orton vs. Cena in their 100th PPV match is going to be an earth shattering, money making pay-per-view match. And what happens to the winner of the Royal Rumble this year? If a title match is going to be set, what does the Rumble winner do? That in itself makes me feel like WWE rushed the title unification match, and had it at a random ppv, much like they did with the WWF/WCW Unification match. Mania usually sells itself, but will this match be enough for the casual fan to want to open their wallet? We’ll see. So for the second year in a row, there are more questions than answers heading into the Mania main event season.”

      Preach it brother. Booking have been terrible as of late. WM 30 should have been the place for unification title match. I get Cena and Orton are the face of the company and for the best to compete , but they already reached their pinnacles in their careers and should have been for guys like Bryan or Punk. Heck Bret Harts oldest brother said the same thing and almost everybody else as well. Y2Js was well thought out and made him a legendary star, beat Rock and Austin who already reached their pinnacles to create new stars instead of bury them in the title hunt. I think they shouldve went back to the undisputed championship title name rather than unified wwe whc name.

      P.P. Johnny says no more Cena vs Orton. Seen that movie way too many times.

      They should put the strap on Lesnar and have Bryan win the Rumble to challenge Lesnar in the main event with the Shield in Lesnar’s corner and The Wyatt Family in Bryan’s corner. Simple, fresh, exciting. There WWE, just made you some free money.

      For the first time in 15 years, I’ve actually stopped watching WWE (around the time the ‘Authority’ storyline started). I just can’t stand it anymore. The same boring, condescending, intelligence-insulting crap that is shoveled in my face.

      I still watch TNA and ROH though. Sure, they have problems, but at least they are somewhat different.
