Vince McMahon May Be Upset Over WrestleMania XXX Creative Plans

McMahon return

WWE CEO Vince McMahon may be upset over WrestleMania XXX creative plans. A recent report from Eric Arrington of DailyWrestlingNews.com claims that McMahon is not happy with the way WrestleMania XXX is shaping up. Apparently, none of the matches McMahon wants are set-in-stone for the event at this time, and he is getting extremely hard to deal with backstage.

Some of the matches and attractions that McMahon wants for WrestleMania XXX aren’t coming together because of the lack of commitment from certain superstars. McMahon wants former WWE Champion The Rock to compete at the event, but he won’t agree to an appearance yet. McMahon also tossed the idea of having Daniel Bryan vs. Shawn Michaels happen in New Orleans, but Michaels won’t commit to coming out of retirement for the match.

One of McMahon’s original plans for the “Authority” storyline, was to have “Stone Cold” Steve Austin vs. Triple H happen at Mania, but apparently Austin wants too much money for the company to commit to signing him for the event. Another frustrating situation for McMahon, is that the match that everyone figured was a set bout, Brock Lesnar vs. the Undertaker, may not be 100% booked either. According to this report, The Undertaker isn’t completely behind facing Lesnar at WrestleMania this year as he’s recovering from his latest surgery.

Reportedly, Bill Goldberg has gained leverage in his talks with WWE in regards to a Mania appearance because none of the above-mentioned stars have committed to being on the card. McMahon is said to be so upset and frustrated about not getting what he wants in regards to the matches he desires to be on the WrestleMania XXX card, that it’s extremely noticeable in his on-going negotiations with Goldberg.

    God forbid he would have to build credible superstars now instead of relying on retreads. He made his own bed here.

  • Andrew Lewis

    The Undertaker facing John Cena is a much better idea than having him face Brock Lesnar, because the fans are looking into this event more, and it benefits The Undertaker’s health. Also, for Vince, more money will be made if these two face each other.

    • Aperture

      I think it is half and half. Some want to see Brock Lesnar because is a total beast and he is a legitimate threat to Undertaker’s. On the other hand, there is the other side that would want to see Cena square off. Cena and his Super-Cena persona should make the hardcore fans scared to see the streak be put on the line. Either way, it will be fun to watch.

      • I’ll Decide

        No, Lesnar is absolutely NOT a threat and that’s the problem many people have with that potential match. As an adult, you know it’s pre-booked, which in turn leads you to the glaring fact that WWE would in no way consider having Lesnar – a guy who hates the business and is only in it for his own selfish monetary gain – end the greatest legacy in wrestling history. With Cena, you really could invest in the idea that the streak was possibly ending. Sting? Unlikely he’d get the win but there’s more chance of WWE giving it to a 30+ year industry vet who’s given his blood sweat and tears to the business, than Lesnar. Sure, Sting never competed for WWE, but the company have made plenty money from his likeness.

        • lester chodesmith

          really? of course brock is a threat. much more so than good guy super cena who will cut the exact same promo for months leading up the the event about how he will once again overcome the odds that are in no way shape or form stacked against him.

          • I’ll Decide

            I’m not talking in kayfabe. I’m talking about real life.

          • Omkar Kulkarni

            kayfabe or not, cena vs taker would be an absolute nightmare. any1 but cena will do.

          • Eric Peyton Smith

            Really? A guy who was a FARCE in UFC is a threat to Undertaker? What drugs are you taking and why are you not sharing?

          • lester chodesmith

            a farce is the UFC? weird that i seem to remember him being a champion and even without the UFC(which is terrible anyway) that dude is a genetic freak….so yes….he would be the best bet to be a legitimate threat to the undertaker even though every fan knows the streak won’t be broken. helpful tip: try actually watching the product sometime there molestache.

        • Aperture

          The streak shouldn’t end, but I see what you are saying though. That is what I was saying. Brock Lesnar is a believable monster. If you saw Brock Lesnar and John Cena in two different dark alleys who would choose NOT to fight? I would fight Cena in a heart beat! Plus, Lesnar is very rough. He can hurt anybody without even trying to. If Lesnar beat everyone when he came back then I would be all for it. I am against Cena because he will beat the streak if the match happens. He will end a legendary legacy. That would be absolutely disrespectful to the man who has put in more blood, sweat, and tears than Cena will ever see in his life. I see what you are saying, though. I would be all for either one, but Undertaker cannot have his streak end.

          • Omkar Kulkarni

            i 100% agree. but taker’s opponents have to be damn good at wrestlemanias. cena is just a shriveled up u-know-what. booking him with taker for wm would be an absolute insult.

          • Aperture

            Do you watch BruceBlitzed? He is a analytical sports writer who does reviews on Youtube. He talks about Cena and the WWE. He also talks about every wrestler in a retrospective article every week. He talks about how bad the WWE is. You should check him out.

          • Omkar Kulkarni

            heyy to each his own u know bro. what i said was my opinion. what you said was yours. and believe me, i am not one of those cena haters out there. although a 5-move wrestler, i personally think cena was great as a heel. now he is a wrestler with limited skills but now he is face and they r giving him everything there is to offer and at this rate he’ll win more championships than any wrestler in the history of this sport. i don’t have that much of a problem with cena as i have with the fact that he is being practically gifted with everything and other wrestlers wit better abilities are kept at the bottom of the barrel. edge is a terrific wrestler and was single-handedly carrying the smackdown brand for all these years, he truly was the top guy and yet cena is the one who is credited of carrying the wwe all this time. i hope ur gettung my point. but hey that’s my opinion u knw.

          • Aperture

            Yeah, I get you. Some people just want to find a voice rather than their own to agree with. I like Bruce. I agree with him on 75% percent of everything he says. I understand though. In your point about Cena…I do not agree with him ending the streak.

            He has beaten:
            1. Chris Jericho
            2. The Rock
            3. JBL
            4. Shawn Michaels
            5. Brock Lesnar

            He has also won the championship 14 times and was Trish Stratus’s tag team partner a few years back! He has done enough. Brock vs. Taker has a personal flare to it. They personally hate each other. The only reason people want to see Cena vs. Taker is because Cena is the burial master. It adds a lot of suspense to the match.

          • The Fact Provider

            Brock and Taker had awesome high profile matches in 2002 and 2003 including a Hell in a Cell match, but Cena and Taker met in the ring just three or four times, in mid card storylines. Taker wanted to face Brock in 2011, but Brrock returned afeter WM 28 in 2012. Taker vs Lesner was originally supposed to happen at WM 29, but Taker rejected saying that he didnt feel he had the strength left to face someone with Lesner’s phisicallity and chose to face Punk instead. All in all chances of Taker vs Lesner has below 20% chance. Cena on the other hand knows how to take it slow and soft when the situation calls for it, and so has a better chance. Cena can have good matches too, like his match with Punk February this year and Bryan at SummerSlam. All in all I feel Undertaker vs Cena at WrestleMania needs to happen, and I hope it does happen……

    • Mike Discoman

      To be honest, I believe that the only guy I could see the streak being snapped by (it will never happen) would be Brock. Especially if he did it in a heel (bad guy) way. He wants to be the ultimate bad guy, and that’s the way to do it. And its what I would do, if he were a full time wrestler. He would have the most heat ever I think haha

      • MissyH316

        Brock Lesnar has no business lacing up Undertaker’s boots, let ALONE ending the streak! He’s a mean, no-class brat.

  • Daniel Breslow

    Shane McMahon should be the one to take on Triple H in the Authority Storyline anyway. Think of the possibilities!! Shane-O-Mac returning to the fold to save the day!! Wow!!

    • Omkar Kulkarni

      oooohhh yeaaaaa..here comes the moneyyy..

    • Marcus Hagness

      If I ever hear that theme song on WWE tv I would mark out big time.

      • adztheman

        Not happening..Shane-o-Mac is doing his own thing, importing various entertainment to China, and doing very well at it..would love to see him as part of the Authority Storyline, but his life has taken him to far better places…

    • MMM

      I would pay money to see Shane-O return. Oh hell yeah!

  • Vile

    If Austin wants more money. . PAY THE MAN!!!. the return on profit will be substantial especially if he faces CM Punk

    • lester chodesmith

      yeah i agree but for whatever reason(because he’s his son in law) vince wants him to wrestle(and probably get buried by) triple h which would just be terrible. i could never see triple h wrestle again and i would be perfectly happy. dude is a slow boring storm of suck. how out of touch can booking and yes even vince be with what the fans actually want to see?

    • Jackie Dennis

      Agreed

    • adztheman

      What can Austin do in a ring? His knees are shot…he hasn’t done anything physical except for movies over the past decade or so…Have him at Wrestlemania pouring beer on himself..but don’t have him waste a spot on the card that should be for the guys who are working as part of the current roster…

  • junior butta

    I remember cody’s interview during press week in wm29 he said how he and the guys were tired of d bs and were gonna push to main event wm30, looks like all d IWc darling’s (ziggler, sandow, rhodes, punk, bryan etc) dreams are coming true. The old legends are tired of bailing vince out, guess what mcmang??? you gon have to display your new stars for wm30! omg the thought of bryan vs punk main eventing might be scaring vince, lol

    • http://twitter.com/slotchmusic ms_spittuh

      I didn’t hear about that — I’m going to look up that interview.

  • Drick Williams

    Goldberg vs John Cena main events WM 30, while Undertaker vs Chris Jericho happens too….

    • Rob

      Those would be rad

    • lester chodesmith

      goldberg vs cena? in what possible way would that be a good match? both are boring stale “5 moves of doom” wrestlers with no idea how to sell who need a good opponent to carry their matches. the only difference being at least goldberg looks threatening and has some decent moves unlike that jorts wearing silly douche super cena and his ultra undevastating standing firemans carry finisher.

      • Omkar Kulkarni

        best comment to this article till now. although i am a fan of goldberg. also taker vs y2j sounds nice. would like 2 c taker vs kane as well.

      • Greenie1983

        How is a fireman’s carry any less devastating than a leg drop…..but look how many people bought into the immortal hulk hogan!!!!!
        Or a simple DDT that nearly everyone does, but for the hardcore legend Mick Foley it was his finisher. (Yes, I know Mick’s was double arm)
        Or even a simple elbow drop, most people kick out of, but call it the people’s elbow from The Rock and it’s a finisher.
        If your going to slag wrestlers off, at least have a better argument than not liking his finishing manoeuvre.

    • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

      I WANT TO SEE AT WRESTLEMANIA 30 IS
      1. RYBACK VS GOLDBERG
      2. BROCK LESNAR VS THE UNDERTAKER
      3. THE AUTHORITY – TRIPLE H ON THE RINGSIDE KANE, STEPHANIE MCMAHON AND THE SHIELD VS STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN – REPRESENTING VINCE MCMAHON – VINCE MCMAHON ON THE RINGSIDE WITH SHANE MCMAHON AND IF THEY CAN BRING BACK KEN SHAMROCK – THE CORPORATION!

  • Ryan

    This is article sums up WWE’s problem, worrying about past stars instead of focusing on today’s and future stars. The following would make for a great WM card IMO and does not include anyone who isn’t on the full time roster with the exception of Taker. These matches are not my fantasy match ups just my interpretation on where I think superstars where land on the card with current storylines.

    WWE/Heavyweight Championship unification match (it’s time already)
    CM Punk & Randy Orton

    IC/US Championshil unification match
    Choose from any of the following…. Dolph Ziggler, Miz, Damien Sandow, Big E Langston, Curtis Axel, Wade Barrett, Fandango

    John Cena vs. Undertaker (this is the last big match left to be made with Taker)

    Daniel Bryan vs. HHH

    The Shield vs. The Wyatt Family

    Cody Rhodes vs. Goldust

    I’ve yet to include Lesnar, Mysterio, Ryback, Shemus, Mark Henry, Del Rio and a few others I can’t think of at the moment. They have PLENTY of talent.

    • Omkar Kulkarni

      taker should face ne1 but cena. cena really can’t wrestle and is no threat 2 taker at all.

      • Aperture

        Cena is the guy who buries every fresh and experienced wrestler in his path…and you are saying he is no threat?

        With that mindset, WWE will have Cena beat Undertaker in a heartbeat.

        • Omkar Kulkarni

          that is precisely my point. cena has ruined wrestling. with that stupid super-cena shit, they are booking him to destroy everyone in his path and give him championships after championships. he is this era’s hogan. there were so many wrestlers who were way better than hogan during his time. but they all were buried in favour of hogan. same is the case with cena. when i say that cena is no threat to taker, i mean it in terms of wrestling ability. but because vince is soo in love with cena, he is helping him bury every wrestler in his path. i will never forgive vince and the wwe if they book cena to end the deadman’s streak.

    • Don Greg

      That match card isn’t bad, but it needs more wrestlemania star power, hence the legends are needed. Come on we’re talking about XXX, the big one.

      • Ryan

        I just don’t see what good it would do to have legends like Hogan, Goldberg and Austin on the card if they can’t work a decent match. Have them come on in a guest role or something along those lines, I can see that and would welcome it. For that matter, get every legend you can possibly get for the big XXX but leave them out of the ring.
        To my knowledge, Austin and Goldberg haven’t worked a match in over a decade and Hogan’s last BIG TIME match was with Rock 12 years ago @ WM 18 where he was old and way past his time. The fact of the matter is, if you don’t work often it’s hard to put on a worthy performance @ the biggest show of the year. Rock was in PHENOMENAL shape while he worked Cena the last two years and he barely pulled off decent showings and still got injured in the process. ‘Taker is no exception to this rule… he gets a pass @ this stage in his career, but Cena gets blasted for working the same matches, what has ‘Taker done the last 3 to 4 years?
        They simply need to move on and establish new stars. It won’t be easy and there will be growing pains in the process. Major stars need to stop working every Monday to give fans a reason to spend $$ to watch them on PPV. I haven’t ordered a PPV in over 10 years because it just isn’t worth it. I can only imagine the feeling people had when they watched Battleground end with a no finish. I can’t begin to FATHOM who actually spent $$ to watch Big Show and Randy Orton @ Survivor Series, a match that has been put on countless times on RAW for free. It’s 2013, UFC has in fact hurt the wrestling business, I don’t care what anyone says… WWE needs to get their act together or there won’t be a WM XXXX.

  • Michael

    I have no desire to see a Lesnar vs Undertaker pro wrestling match. I do however really want to see a Lesnar vs Calaway shoot fight.

    • lester chodesmith

      why would you want to see taker get hurt? i mean dude is a certified badass but his bones are made of glass these days.

  • Ray

    WWE has become very boreing.With tiple H, Stephene, running the show are should I say ruining the show. same O same O wrestling matches every week. Boering boering.

  • Joseph Miller

    BROCK LESNER SHOULD FIGHT FOR THE WWE BELT IN WRESTLEMANIA XXX AND WIN IT.THAT WOULD BE THE ULTIMATE.ALSO LET HIM HOLD IT TILL THE FOLLOWING WM31, AND MAYBE VINCE COULD DEAL WITH TNA TO BORROW SOME OF THEIR BIG NAMES AND HAVE A COMPETATIVE TNA VS WWE.

  • True Patriot

    Summer Rae vs. AJ Lee in bra/panties babyoil match. stipulation: Loser bares all. Book It !

  • GurlRocker

    Main Event: Brooklyn Brawler Vs. Disco Inferno. Book it!

  • Ltreese96

    The worst thing in WWE would be for the Undertaker to fight Brock Lesnar. Wrong in many ways.
    1st-It makes no sense in a creative stand point. The only history between the two is not in a wrestling ring. No one has seen the Undertaker since WM29, so there is no “heat” built up.
    2nd-Both Lesner and Taker wrestle “stiff”. Lesner has no control over his temper and he has history of dislike with Taker. One good punch and he’ll think he’s in a cage fight rather than a wrestling match. Also, Lesner can’t string two wrestling moves together if he tried. And he has tried. It looked so very weak.
    3rd-Lesner is younger than Taker. Taker has been my favorite wrestler since he was Mean Mark Callus. That’s over 20 years ago. I love the guy, but he is not in his prime. Sorry, but it is true. And he has a family. The wrestling world owes it to Taker to allow him to retire himself gracefully. We all owe him that.

    As a compromise, both the Shield and the Wyatt family have claimed that they put him out of wrestling. Even Kane has gone over to the Authority. Why not have Taker come back, recruit his own team {Kane, Usos, and others} and have an on-going fight with the two groups up to WM30. Then at WM30, have Taker defeat both Wyatt and one of the Shield members. At WM30, Undertaker destroys both the Shield and the Wyatt family. This would allow for some re-working of both those groups and give Taker a nice, big finish.

  • Henry

    Geez it’s going to be a boring Wm 30 if none of those matches get booked. I’d like to see brock vs taker…and definitely Austin back in the ring but face cm punk instead.

  • kenneth deruyscher

    lesner vs goldberg battle of the beast

  • Rated Republican

    This article has NOTHING to do with Vince McMahon being mad at the Creative Team. This article is about Vince McMahon being upset with the Talent Relations team that is having a hard time securing deals with the high priced legends, who see the fact that this coming WrestleMania as number 30 is an opportunity to cash in big. Since it is being promoted as WrestleMania XXX, it should be more depraved than the Attitude Era when DX told people to Suck It.

  • Steve Ramey

    I am so glad that Eric Arrington of DailyWrestlingNews.com was able to sit down with Vincent Kennedy McMahon and get this enlightening information to share with all the dirtsheets. Congrats dude on your scoup!

  • TheRawTruth

    Lesnar vs Taker doesn’t interest me AT ALL, and here;s why:

    Brock has already been beaten by both Cena, and Triple H since his return. He’s only wrestled a handful of times, but losing two of his first three matches back didn’t do him any favors. Why would we believe he could beat The Undertaker? For that matter, even if he COULD beat The Undertaker, why SHOULD he? What will it do for Brock’s career? He’s a PART-TIME wrestler, whose career is almost over. WHY would you have him beat Taker and end the streak? Cena on the other hand…(yes, I’m going there.) If anybody would get the MOST heat by ending the streak, it would be John Cena. PERIOD.

  • germs1081

    *Gasp* Does that mean Vince might have to rely on the people who work all year for him to carry WrestleMania this year instead of the people who work 2-3 times a year? Maybe its about time WWE seriously got behind the current roster instead of continually treating them as secondary to the pre-2003 roster.

    • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

      THE ONLY PROBLEM FOR WRESTLEMANIA 30 IS THAT STEVE AUSTIN DEMANDS MORE MONEY AND EVEN BILL GOLDBERG DEMAND MONEY! MAYBE WWE WILL EITHER CHOOSE BILL GOLDBERG TO FACE RYBACK! AND GIVE A HUGE PAYCHECK! STEVE AUSTIN IS NOW A HALL OF FAMER IF IT DOESN’T WORK MAYBE THE ROCK CAN REPLACE HIM!

  • Christopher Lairdriver

    I can’t believe WWE is complaining about pay for Steve Austin. The Company is worth over $2 Billion dollars. McMahon underpays his Wrestlers. Most of them are wrestling 250-300 days a year. If Steve Austin were at Wrestlemania – the PPV buys would be substantially higher. Steve has made more then enough money in his life. He doesn’t have to come back.

    I don’t know if Undertaker would or should come back. He has to train a full year for a full match. He will be basically 50 years old. He has had a tonne of surgeries and injuries in his career. Facing Brock Lesnar wouldn’t be smart. The two don’t like each other personally, unless that has been fixed -Brock could accidentally hurt Undertaker.

    Bring Goldberg in, why not? WWE is running on fumes quite often. Lots of talent, storywriters are asleep.

    • Pfc Mark Kevin Apalisok

      YUP MAYBE IT HAPPEN I WANT TO SEE IT ON WRESTLEMANIA 31 GOLDBERG VS THE UNDERTAKER!

  • J.G. te Molder

    Vince should consider himself lucky; all those matches are bad. Brian wins RR; challenges Orton and WrestleMania and wins the title.

  • Marcus Hagness

    The only guy on the roster that would “make sense” to break to streak is Cena. That being said, he doesn’t NEED it for his career at all. But if they wanted to end the streak (which I don’t think they do, or should) Cena is the only full-time guy to do it. If a part-time guy breaks the streak there will be a mutiny.

  • Rodan Hibiki

    This is what happens when you rely on part timers. Seeing how Bryan and Punk are two of the most over guys on the roster, not just on the internet but mainstream fans as well, a championship main event between those two should be a no-brainer. Book Undertaker vs. John Cena and they’ll be setting PPV records.
