When wrestlinginc.com reported the four rumoured main event matches of WrestleMania, it was hard not to feel completely underwhelmed by WWE's apparent lack of creativity.
Sheamus vs. Randy Orton and CM Punk vs. Undertaker have the potential to be outstanding feuds and matches, but with Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar and John Cena vs. The Rock, WWE is essentially saying: "We have nothing else to offer."
It appears that the days when up-and-coming superstars could propel themselves into contention for a monumental WrestleMania match that would define their careers are coming to an end.
The era in effect now is that of previous superstars who have proven to be big draws in the past currently stealing the spotlight from more deserving wrestlers, claiming a bumper pay cheque in the process before disappearing to count their coins.
In a justified reality, this year's WrestleMania would feature stars like Daniel Bryan, The Miz, Dolph Ziggler, Wade Barrett or Alberto Del Rio in main event matches.
The aforementioned superstars have not yet experienced any WrestleMania moments of any positive significance, whereas Triple H, Brock Lesnar, The Rock and John Cena have had enough to land a dozen wrestlers in the Hall of Fame.
Don't get me wrong, the inclusion of Triple H, The Rock and Brock Lesnar is fantastic for buy-rates, but this is the time where, to build for the future, these men need to put over younger talent rather than simply compete in matches against each other.
During the last year we have already witnessed John Cena vs. The Rock and Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H, and there is little WWE could do to generate anywhere near the initial enthusiasm for their original matches.
Should these matches come to fruition, sure, people who have heard of the stars will fork out for the event, but the long-term future of the company suffers irreparably as a result.
Until WWE once again prioritises its future over its past, then the progression of the company will stall until one day all the legends are gone, and all WWE is left with is a bunch of mid-card stars who never received that main event push when it was so desperately needed.
