That was different. WrestleMania 38 weekend has come and gone and there was a lot taking place in WWE. In addition to the namesake WrestleMania pay per view, there was also a stand alone NXT event, plus Monday Night Raw. While these two shows rarely have anything in common, that was the case this week, and now we know something more about how fast things changed.
On Saturday, Dolph Ziggler retained the NXT Title over Bron Breakker at Stand & Deliver. Two days later, Breakker took the title from Ziggler in a match not announced until the night of the show. According to Wrestling Observer Live, the original plans called for Ziggler to hold the title for “awhile”, with a commercial airing during Monday Night Raw advertising Ziggler as champion. While not confirmed, the theory was that Breakker was to be called up to the main roster but then WWE changed their minds.
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that WWE tends to do time after time, which doesn’t exactly make things that much better. The company seems to have plans made and then changes them in a hurry. It can’t be easy to be part of the locker room and have that kind of thing happen all the time, but WWE doesn’t seem to care. Breakker winning the title is fine, but it doesn’t seem like there was much planning for it.
