WWE Creative generally pens down Wrestlemania plans as early as possible at the start of the season and plans the matches, accordingly. Most of the time they are successful in being hype up the match as needed. But this year, the scenario was different due to several injuries in the roster which included major superstars like John Cena, Cesaro, Seth Rollins etc. which shoved off the original planning for this season.
The original matches that were scripted at the grandest stage were Triple H vs. Seth Rollins, John Cena vs. The Undertaker with the later one being the main event of the night. Brock Lesnar was originally scheduled to face Bray Wyatt at the grandest stage whereas the Lunatic fringe Dean Ambrose was supposed to face the ayatollah of Rock ‘n’ Rolla Chris Jericho.
The plan of letting Dean Ambrose face the beast at the very last moment came as the WWE universe wanted to see the Lunatic Fringe going toe-to-toe against the beast incarnate.
As per reports from the cagesideseats.com WWE thought that a dominating performance against the Beast would project Ambrose as one of the top fighters in the company. They forecasted that a win over Y2J at this point would mean much more than a loss to the unleashed beast at a street fight. But, that did not turn out to be as per the plan. The Wyatt family interference would save Dean from losing but Lesnar dominated over Ambrose for almost the entire part of the match and won it in quick. Dean was actually projected as “weak” aftermath Wrestlemania and his original planning with Jericho might have favored him anyway.
On the other hand, Bray Wyatt was supposed to get a blockbuster feud and match with Lesnar at Wrestlemania but eventually it turned out to be a forgettable one for his flock who got shoved off by Rock and Cena.
