• Former WWE Champion Set To Make History At WrestleMania 34 For The Wrong Reason
According to DirtySheets.Net, former WWE Champion Bray Wyatt could be making history at WrestleMania 34, but this feat isn’t something Wyatt would be proud of.
Wyatt could very well become the first active WWE star to defend the WWE Championship at a WrestleMania event and then fail to appear in a match at next year’s WrestleMania event.
There are 5 other wrestlers would fall into this category, but it should be noted that they weren’t active during next year’s WrestleMania (as they were either injured, retired or left the company). Below is that list:
– Ric Flair (WWF Champion heading into WrestleMania 8)
– Shawn Michaels (won the the WWF Championship at WrestleMania 12)
– Sycho Sid (WWF Champion heading into WrestleMania 13)
– Batista (won the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 21)
– The Rock (WWE Champion heading into WrestleMania 29)
Wyatt entered last year’s WrestleMania 33 event as the WWE Champion and lost the Title to Randy Orton. We’re now a week away from WrestleMania 34 and Wyatt hasn’t been announced for any match yet.
The only match it looks like Wyatt could enter (IF he does) is the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal (which WOKEN Matt Hardy is also a part of) and that match would most probably end up being on the WrestleMania 34 Kickoff Show.
So this means there’s very little to no chance of Wyatt being involved in a match on the main card of WrestleMania 34.
