• Kurt Angle’s Original WrestleMania 34 Plans Revealed

Jon Robison, who got backstage access at WrestleMania 34 as he wrote the book “Creating the Mania: An Inside Look at How WrestleMania Comes to Life”, appeared on the Smark to Death podcast and revealed original plans for Kurt Angle at WrestleMania 34.

Below is what Jon said:

“They were really gonna do Kurt Angle vs Jason Jordan and this was gonna put Jason Jordan over huge and make him a top star. Then Jason Jordan gets injured, that’s another big change. Then what do you do with Kurt? Then obviously he gets thrown into an even bigger match.

It’s crazy to see everything change from what I’m being told, to watching the show, then going back and talking to them again. Having that kind of access was incredible, especially for someone like me who has been a huge fan since I was a little kid.”
