It was reported earlier this week that WWE wants to go in a different direction for WrestleMania 33, as several changes were made to the card. The most shocking change was canceling the John Cena vs. Undertaker match, which was supposed to be for the WWE Championship.
Dave Meltzer said on Twitter that the reason the company made the chance is because Vince McMahon wants to this year’s WrestleMania to also be about the long-term direction of the company instead of just the short-term.
No, just Vince has a different vision for the show and thinking longterm picture not short-term. https://t.co/mBU03in0JB
