What WWE Star Wants Fans to Boo The Rock AND John Cena at Wrestlemania 29?
Even with all of the excitement that has come with WrestleMania week, there seems to be a dark cloud hanging over the event, and I’m not talking about New Jersey weather.
Ever since The Rock returned to part-time action for the WWE two years ago, he’s methodically taken the spotlight away from everyone in the WWE not named John Cena. This time, the movie star isn’t the only wrestler coming out of the woodwork to take a spot on the WrestleMania 29 marquee — Triple H, Brock Lesnar, and The Undertaker are all guilty of the same.
The WWE locker room is fed up with these attention mongers and Dolph Ziggler, for one, isn’t afraid to speak his mind on the bad taste this leaves in his mouth.
“I don’t want the cheers and the boos. I hope it’s 90% boos letting them know that this “Once in a Lifetime” match is happening again and that I or someone else should be the main event. But, that’s the great thing about the WWE Universe. They get to voice their opinions, they get to show their signs. And whether they like something or hate it, you’re going to hear about it. I’m excited to hear it.”
While Ziggler isn’t alone in these sentiments, it takes some cajones to speak out on some of the biggest stars the wrestling business has ever seen. I mean, it’s very possible Vince McMahon has given Dolph the green light to complain about these things in the media, but I sincerely doubt it. Dolph isn’t usually shy about his opinion either.
Every interview Ziggler does also shines a light on the fact that Brock Lesnar isn’t even willing to do media for the event. The former UFC Heavyweight champion is well known for being a hard act to wrangle up for promotion, but he’s just adding validity to Ziggler’s complaints with his lack of interest in helping WWE and wrestling in general.
WrestleMania has always been about cross-promoting professional wrestling with the mainstream, and I can’t blame Vincent Kennedy McMahon for capitalizing on some of the acts he helped make mainstream in the first place.
