The last second changes. We are less than a week away from WrestleMania and since this is WWE, they are still changing the card at the last second. That was the case during this week’s edition of Monday Night Raw as a previously announced match was changed to something a little bit different. It seems that the new version is a return to the original plans.
One of the biggest WWE stories over the last few months has been the introduction and rise of Bad Bunny. The rapper debuted at the Royal Rumble and is already having issues with the Miz and John Morrison. Bunny is not exactly a wrestler but he has a wrestling friend in Damien Priest. The feud moved into a WrestleMania match, but now the match has expanded to include some others. That might be less of a surprise than it seems.
This week on Monday Night Raw, the Bunny vs. Miz match at WrestleMania was turned into a tag team match with Priest and Morrison being added to either side. According to Wrestling Observer Radio, this was the original plan for the match the entire time. WWE’s plan was to advertise Bunny vs. Miz in a singles match to draw interest and then make it a tag team match later. The tag match is scheduled for night one of WrestleMania.
The match has been set up well. Check out how we got here:
Opinion: This makes sense and in reality is a relief in a way. Bunny has brought some star power to WWE and I don’t think there was any surprise when he was announced for a match. That being said, it could have been quite an issue having Miz have trouble against a non-wrestler so putting Priest in there should help a lot. WWE planning it this way in advance makes sense, even if it is a bit of a bait and switch.
