There are some big changes ahead for the WWE, most of which are believed to take place after WrestleMania 34. Curious about the changes the WWE is looking to implement? Be sure to check out the overview of this informative Forbes article below.
Goodbye to Brock Lesnar (YAY!)
A lot of serious wrestling fans have problems with Brock Lesnar as a paper champion. Fortunately, it would seem that the WWE is planning to get rid of Brock Lesnar where the WWE Universal Championship is concerned.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Brock Lesnar will finally drop the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania. For many wrestling fans, it means an end to one of the weirdest championship runs in history.
Since Brock Lesnar is set to drop the title, it leaves many fans wondering about the future of the current WWE Universal Champion within the company. There has been some talk about Lesnar returning to the UFC, but time will tell.
Daniel Bryan Could Leave the WWE
One thing I am not happy with is Daniel Bryan potentially leaving the WWE. A couple of months ago, Bryan made the statement:
“I assume that if I don’t wrestle by WrestleMania, I probably won’t be wrestling with WWE at all. That’s my assumption.”
Bryan has also made it clear that he would go wrestle elsewhere if the WWE does not reinstate him as a wrestler. Current WWE storylines seem to indicate that Bryan will be fired as the SmackDown Live general manager. So, this is one change in the WWE I wish would not happen.
Part-Timers Will No Longer Play a Big Role in the Company
Brock Lesnar dropping the title is believed to be a strong sign of change within the company. Many part-timers on the current roster will play a lesser role in WWE programming; this appears to be the case for John Cena and Randy Orton.
While nostalgia every now and again is certainly fun, the WWE has to rely more on their part-timers than any of the new additions to the roster. However, change seems to be in the cards after WrestleMania, since part-timers such as Orton and Cena have not been booked for any events after WrestleMania. Of course, you never know with the WWE.
More NXT Talent on the Main Roster
With part-timers disappearing on the main roster and no longer playing such a big role, it is expected that many new talents will get an upgrade from the NXT roster. Some of the names that are rumored to make the transition to the main roster include Peyton Royce, Billie Kay, the Authors of Pain, Sanity, Drew McIntyre, Johnny Gargano, and No Way Jose. If proven true, these guys can put a lot of fans in seats!
Styles Goes to Raw
With another draft announced, it is no surprise that many fans are speculating about a move for AJ Styles to the Raw brand. I certainly believe it is a good idea because there is little left for Styles on the SmackDown roster. Switching Styles for other Raw talents could also benefit the SmackDown brand.
