WWE’s biggest event of the year is coming up sooner than you’d think. The road to WrestleMania 39 kicks off at the Royal Rumble this Saturday in San Antonio, and the rumor mill is churning overtime with Mania gossip. Triple H and his team are working hard to make sure this is a huge event, and that could mean that special attractions will be a part of the show. That doesn’t mean the current roster of talent will be overlooked in the slightest.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said, “with Austin, obviously an inquiry was made to Austin [about wrestling at WrestleMania], so when I say they have no confidence, that’s a vote of no confidence right there. Given how business is doing, they should not have no confidence in these guys because their business is doing great. So why do you have to not have confidence in your modern guys to headline.” Some have taken what he said out of context.
A narrative is going around that WWE is not happy with their current roster, and they have no confidence in who they have available for the show of shows. That is not the case whatsoever.
Ringside News has confirmed, on several occasions, that Triple H has expressed no disappointment in his current roster. It was also made very clear to us that if he even did feel that way, then there is no way he would express anything close to fear, uncertainty, or doubt about his crop of talent. That would be a terrible move politically, and it’s a foul-up that The Game would never make.
Any thought that WWE bringing in big names like Steve Austin, Brock Lesnar, John Cena, or Logan Paul for WrestleMania is a crutch because Triple H doesn’t have faith in his talent is very off-base. Triple H constructed this roster with his own hands, and the evidence is there by how many people he brought back to the company and by those who Vince McMahon pushed that are no longer getting as much of a spotlight.
WWE has always loaded WrestleMania with special attractions and celebrities. From the very first event with Cyndi Lauper, Liberace, and Mr. T, WWE has stacked the show. Steve Austin or Logan Paul working a match at WrestleMania should be no sign that there is a lack of confidence in the current roster. It is simply proof that WrestleMania is still the company’s biggest show of the year.
We will have to see how the WrestleMania card comes together. WWE booked the Royal Rumble event without any massive part-timers, and the Alamodome is so sold out that it’s breaking records for the company.
WWE might be going through a huge internal change, but Vince McMahon did not remove Triple H from power. Things are still going the way Triple H wants them, and he has total confidence moving forward. Keep checking back with Ringside News for all the news you need.
