Vince McMahon is loved and hated by millions in the WWE Universe, almost in equal measure. There are those that still love him for his role in making the WWE the force it is today, but there are also plenty of fans that feel he's too much of a meddler and too out of touch to have such a huge say on WWE matters.
The entertainment mogul might not be competing in the ring anymore, but he's still shaping events, character progression, and the career paths of leading wrestlers in WWE. Careers depend on the decisions Vince McMahon makes, and one swift change of his mind later, the make-up of pro-wrestling often looks a whole lot different.
McMahon's last-minute decision to end The Undertaker's WrestleMania Streak last year was the perfect example of Vince changing something and getting a huge reaction. Much of that was negative, but it was also nonetheless excellent publicity in terms of social media buzz. And now one year on, McMahon has had another massive change of heart.
Rather than go ahead with the planned and expected main event of Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns, McMahon now wants Daniel Bryan to be part of a triple-threat match with Reigns and Lesnar for the WWE Heavyweight Championship, according to reports.
"We noted two weeks ago that WWE pontifical would not be putting Daniel Bryan into the WWE World Heavyweight Title Match at WrestleMania 31 with Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar because Vince McMahon didn't want to go that route again after doing the same thing last year. Vince reportedly held a meeting this past week and changed his mind," Wrestlinginc reported.
"According to The Wrestling Observer, the new idea for the WrestleMania 31 main event is Bryan vs. Reigns vs. Lesnar for the title."
Everything could still change
It's important to note that plans could still change between now and the Fastlane pay-per-view later this month, but this is a change of heart likely to go down well with WWE fans.
No doubt Vince McMahon has given Daniel Bryan the opportunity to main event WrestleMania 31 after the negative fan reaction to his early exit at Royal Rumble last month.
So what do you think WWE fans? Is Daniel Bryan's inclusion in the WrestleMania 31 main event a good move? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
