Ex WWE Producer Explains Original Plans For WrestleMania 35 Before KofiMania

WrestleMania 35 was known for a lot of things, but many will never forget KofiMania. That wasn’t WWE’s original plan at all

Former WWE producer Shawn Daivari recently spoke to Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast about WWE’s changing plans. He discussed WrestleMania 35 and those original plans for Kevin Owens to take on Daniel Bryan before KofiMania took hold of the WWE Universe.

The next SmackDown, Kevin Owens would’ve come back and Kevin Owens and Daniel Bryan would’ve wrestled at WrestleMania. It might’ve been good, it might’ve been bad, it might’ve been indifferent. Probably would’ve been great. The audience, that electricity made Kofi Mania happen and as we know, that turned out f*cking amazing.

Kofi Kingston won the WWE Title at WrestleMania, but that was not the original plan. Vince McMahon saw the changing in tides and he heard the incredible fan reactions in Kingston’s favor.

The ThunderDome has allowed Vince McMahon to create a bigger vacuum as they control every fan reaction. Hopefully, live fans will return soon, so they can become a voice once again. Every now and then Vince McMahon actually listens to that voice.
