The clocks are ticking and WrestleMania is fast approaching after we took a Fastlane to the event on The Road to WrestleMania.
As of current reports, there will be seventeen matches on the card, which could see a few important or fan-favorite matches fall on to the kick-off show. However, being on the kick-off show of the grandest event of the year is also a huge honor for many superstars.
The build for most of the matches has been going extremely well, with the plot for the WWE Championship thickening, the battle between Batista and Triple H becoming more fierce, and the Raw Women’s Championship match looking like a potential headliner.
Some matches, on the other hand, are suffering from non-development of crucial storylines due to the sheer amount of matches on the card. This might even see some championship matches suffer at the end of the event too.
Here we will look at 4 such matches which have no or bad storylines at the moment and could suffer from negative reactions at the end of the night.
#4 The United States Championship match
The United States Championship was once the most sought after championship in the WWE. The value of the championship had risen to such great heights that recently even wrestlers such as Randy Orton were competing for the title.
In the past few months, the title’s value has fizzled down just like that of the Raw Tag Team Championship and SmackDown Women’s Championship.
The reason has been Shinsuke Nakamura’s win, followed by few title defenses, which then saw Rusev win the title and soon lose Nakamura again, who lost it two days later to R-Truth.
Only after Samoa Joe won the title a couple of weeks back has the title’s value started to rise again.
However, WWE has quickly announced a match between Joe and Rey Mysterio for the title, taking out Andrade or any of the previous champions from the mix.
This has led to slow development of the storyline around the title which could have seen multiple superstars compete for it, especially those who held the title only a few months back making the angle and the storyline much more exciting.
