Dean Ambrose was meant to face Chris Jericho at WrestleMania 32

WrestleMania 32 has come and gone and it hard to pick what match made the biggest headline after Undertaker overcame Shane McMahon and Roman Reigns defeated Triple H.

The night was filled with good matches but it is hard to pick a favourite after so many stand out contests.

Change of plans

Two very good matches that took place at AT&T Stadium was the battle between Dean Ambrose and Brock Lesnar, and the clash between Chris Jericho and AJ Styles.

Both matches were memorable - although for different reasons but details have emerged in the aftermath of the show that claim that it could have all been so different.

The original plans for Dean Ambrose at WrestleMania have been revealed and it appears that far from facing the Beast Incarnate, Ambrose was originally planned to take on Y2J.

The issue between Lesnar and Ambrose really started at Fastlane while the problems between Styles and Jericho were much earlier.

It is speculated that it was actually the signing of Styles that changed everything and forced the WWE to come up with a new opponent for Ambrose - not that they disappointed.

The impact of placing Styles in the feud with Jericho however can not be understated as it appears to have affected no less than seven other men.

Moving Ambrose to take on Lesnar is arguably the reason the plans for the Lesnar vs Bray Wyatt feud were changed and the Wyatt's were left without a match at Mania.

That in turn however meant that the Wyatt's were free to take part in their segment with the Rock and also make way for John Cena to make a return at WrestleMania.

The only question left is, did the WWE make the right call?

No Holds Barred

While Lesnar and Ambrose did produce a quality match at WrestleMania, fans will always wonder what could of been from the Lesnar vs Wyatt clash.

It is still largely expected that we will see Brock Lesnar and Bray Wyatt in the same ring before 2016 is over, but there is no grander stage than WrestleMania.
