WWE fans are furious as new WrestleMania 34 poster features two shock superstars

The WWE has uncharacteristically made some drastic changes in the past few weeks in the lead up to their Survivor Series pay-per-view.

But is this likely to be a permanent thing with WrestleMania 34 just under six months away?

WrestleMania season starts in earnest with the Royal Rumble in January and with AJ Styles securing the WWE title from Jinder Mahal last Tuesday in Manchester, England, fans have begun to get excited about the Phenomenal One's reign.

Styles will kick off his reign with a champion versus champion match against Universal champion Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series, a dream match in the eyes of many WWE fans.

However, Styles was also the champion this time last year, but would lose the strap to John Cena at the Royal Rumble and eventually feud with Shane McMahon for 'Mania 33 in Orlando.

Mahal had been the champion for five months prior to his loss last Tuesday and many believed that Vince McMahon kept him as champion to capitalise on the huge Indian market the WWE is trying to tap into.

Forgetting the fact that Mahal is actually Canadian for a second - although the 31-year-old is certainly of Indian descent - the fans just haven't been able to invest in Mahal thanks to his slow and boring style in the ring. His promos - especially against Shinsuke Nakamura - left a lot to be desired too.

However, the WWE released their first poster to promote tickets for WrestleMania 34 in New Orleans and fans may have to get used to Mahal.

To be fair, Naomi also features on the poster instead of the likes of Sasha Banks or Charlotte, but with Cena, Nakamura, Lesnar and Alex Bliss for company, it's clear that the poster features the WWE's heavy hitters.

Keeping The Modern Day Maharaja front and centre is a sure-fire sign his latest Instagram post will come true. Mahal insists he will become the WWE champion once again and the WWE's insistence to keep prominently featuring the 31-year-old suggests he may have a point.

Any fans that were hoping Mahal might fade back to 'jobber' status should consider this poster bad news.
