That’s a fast turnaround. You might have noticed that this year’s WrestleMania is not like the usual versions. The show has been changed time after time and with just under two weeks to go, there is still time for a few more adjustments. Even though some of the matches are already set, that doesn’t mean more changes aren’t going to be made, which seems to be the case with one of the announced matches.
Last week on SmackDown, Paige appeared via the Titantron and announced that Bayley would be defending the SmackDown Women’s Title in a six way match at WrestleMania. This meant that Bayley would have five challengers for the match, with Paige announcing the names at the same time. However, it seems that the match has already been changed to a smaller field.
WWE.com’s preview for the match now features a photo only including Bayley, Sasha Banks, Tamina, Naomi and Lacey Evans, with Dana Brooke nowhere in sight. Also, the link for the match now says “Fatal Five Way Elimination Match”. While not confirmed, this would suggest that Brooke has been removed from the match for unclear reasons. WWE has yet to address the situation and there is no word on who could replace Brooke, if anyone will.
That must be a relief. Check out how the match was made:
Opinion: I’m not sure what this means but at the end of the day, this is the kind of show that feels like something is going to change every chance that it can get. It’s annoying and frustrating, but if Brooke can’t work the show for some reason, especially if it is something medical related (and to clarify, there is no indication that it is), there is no need to have her in the match. Do what matters here and she can be around later.
