Thought of the Day: The Wrestlemania X-Factor

It’s reminiscent of Judgment Day 2000.Back at Judgment Day 2000, the Rock was in an iron man match against HHH.  With about two minutes to go, everything fell apart and Rock was outnumbered by about six to one.  It looked like there was no hope but the Undertaker returned and saved the Rock.  He also cost him the WWF Title but that’s another story.

The place went NUTS as Undertaker had been gone for about six months.  He was making a huge return after about six months away and he had been gone just long enough that people had forgotten he was missing.  That brings us to the next six weeks before Wrestlemania.  There’s a factor that hasn’t been mentioned in the the last few weeks and I think that’s by design.

The man I’m talking about is Vince McMahon.

Vince hasn’t been seen on WWE TV since I believe TLC, or about two months ago.  Everything seems to be falling down around Daniel Bryan as HHH and Stephanie’s authority continues to expand but if history has taught us anything, it’s that Vince McMahon can defy any story or power structure and be the ultimate power in WWE at the drop of a hat.

Vince is going to be back before Wrestlemania and he’s going to be shake up the Bryan vs. HHH feud.  Bank on it.

    Meh, I’d rather he didn’t. I’d rather it be someone like Hogan using his Mania guest host powers to somehow get Bryan in the title match as opposed to Vince. And if it is Vince, I really don’t think it’ll be to force a match between Bryan/Triple H, I just don’t see that match happening at Mania.
