WWE has a vast history of upsetting fans with their booking decisions. This is a practice that dates back to the beginning of the company. Vince McMahon’s proclivity to do things his own way proceeded him in every creative angle, but his son-in-law, Triple H, is running the show now. That being said, some of McMahon’s unused ideas are now coming to light, which would have vastly changed WWE history if they had gone down.

Kofi Kingston had the entire WWE Universe behind him on the road to Kofimania, an event where he did win the WWE Title, but then he lost the belt in a squash match to Brock Lesnar during the first episode of SmackDown on FOX. It turns out that was the original idea Vince McMahon had for Bryan Danielson.

Bryan Danielson won the WWE Title at WrestleMania XXX, an event that saw him compete twice that night. In the end, Danielson dropped his title due to injury. While discussing WWE’s current situation with Sami Zayn on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that Kofi’s fate with Lesnar was actually meant for Danielson.

Even if they give the title to Sami Zayn, well I shouldn’t say that, because this is Vince. If this was Vince, and he saw this reaction, and he goes, ‘oh we gotta give it to him,’ and he’s already planning on beating him in 8 seconds at SummerSlam. You know, cause that’s what Vince did with Danielson, or that’s what he was gonna do, but he got hurt first. With Kofi, that’s what he did.


If Zayn goes in there, then Brock Lesnar or Bobby Lashley will kill him at SummerSlam. That’s where we’re probably different, because Triple H might not do it that way.

Triple H’s booking style is much different from Vince McMahon’s, so it is hard to tell what he will do. Vince McMahon certainly had his own style of booking, so it got a little easier to guess what he would decide in terms of booking.

As Ringside News exclusively reported month ago, WWE nailed down their plans for WrestleMania already. Only time will tell if the massive fan reaction to Sami Zayn will encourage Triple H to change his plans, but The Game is well on his way to the showcase of the immortals in SoFi Stadium on April 1st and 2nd.
