WWE BREAKING: MEGA WrestleMania 33 Match Officially Cancelled – See Why Vince McMahon Endorsed It

According to Dave Meltzer, Brock Lesnar vs. Shane McMahon was the original plan for WrestleMania 33 but that match never saw the light of the day as Lesnar turned it down.

In the report, Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter noted that Lesnar turned down the match offer for whatever reasons. Meltzer said that Lesnar didn’t even want to fight Shane at WrestleMania. And things became easier for him when Goldberg was signed to a WWE contract and had shown interest in remaining with the company past Survivor Series. Yes, the plans for Lesnar and Shane were “thrown out the window” when Goldberg arrived, Meltzer said.

Lesnar and Goldberg’s match in November was initially supposed to be a one-time deal but as things turned out, it’s now going past Survivor Series

For the heck of it, top matches such as Brock Lesnar, the Undertaker, Shane McMahon, Triple H and Goldberg are exclusively planned by the WWE CEO, Vince McMahon – he knows the right time to do the job. He is always overseeing their direction and waits for the right time to include him in his plans.

While you may wonder at this, it becomes necessary to state that WrestleMania plans can always change and Vince McMahon is known for frequently altering them.

That said, Lesnar and Goldberg’s match in November was initially supposed to be a one-time deal. Meltzer said that Lesnar didn’t even want to fight Shane at WrestleMania.

The only thing that is next is a date in April between Goldberg and Lesnar. This is where the Beast Incarnate will probably win his first WWE Universal championship.

If Lesnar wins on April 2, then it will mark him as the second-consecutive WWE Superstar to win WWE Raw’s major championship while being a part-time wrestler. The only implication from this, however, will be the absence of the red brand’s major championship on television due to Lesnar’s part-time status.
