One of the biggest things buzzing around the WWE Universe is this mysterious "It Begins" videos. These promos have an eerie feeling and a dark theme to them.
The two obvious options behind these mystery promos are Chris Jericho and The Undertaker.
Chris Jericho has said several times that he does not plan on returning to the WWE and that he will never wrestle for the company again. However, fans still expect this to be the return of Jericho because what better way for him to make a shocking return than saying he will never come back.
Some hints that this is Jericho is the frequent use of the word "second." Jericho made his return in 2007 and called it the "Second Coming."
Also, in the new promos, the creepy little boy says "The power cometh is a thief in the night to claim what others have taken." Recently, Jericho has claimed that wrestlers like CM Punk have been stealing things from him. He claims that wrestlers are stealing his moves and CM Punk now says he is "The Best in the World," which is similar to Jericho's self-proclaimed title: "The Best in the World at What He Does."
Last year, The Undertaker's return to the WWE was presented after weeks of dark promotional videos. These videos definitively have a creepy feel to them and The Undertaker may want to come back and "claim" the world heavyweight championship which is "what others have taken."
Rumors have been that this could be the last run for The Undertaker before he retires and a World Heavyweight title run could be fitting. Also, the second of these promos included a little girl in the background. It also has been reported that The Undertaker's wife, Michelle McCool, is interested in returning to the company with Taker and the girl in the back could symbolize McCool.
It has been reported that both Chris Jericho and The Undertaker are talking to the WWE and working out their returns. Other reports are that Undertaker is going to retire and Jericho will never return to the WWE.
An angle that has gotten little discussion is the possible return of Shane McMahon. In 2009, it was announced that Shane would resign from the company effective January 1, 2010.
The truth behind these videos could be the return of Shane-O-Mac, and that would absolutely be unexpected. The little boy could signify the return of Shane McMahon. Shane has grown up in the business and his father has owned the company since he was a little boy.
Shane could come back and start a feud with Triple H, Stephanie, and John Laurinaitis because they have taken control of the company. "The power cometh is a thief in the night to claim what others have taken. Those who are unjust, destruction shall come upon them and they will not escape. The second day of two-thousand twelve is coming; and it will be the end of the world as you know it."
Shane could return to claim the company from who he feels have "unjustly" taken from him. He could push the idea that the company does not deserve to go to Triple H or anyone else, it deserves to be given to him because he is the heir.
Hopefully, Shane could come in and destroy the "PG era" that exists in the WWE today and save us.
The girl in the promo could symbolize Stephanie McMahon. Stephanie has been basically unmentioned and not involved with her husband (Triple H) being named COO of the company and all that has gone on with him.
A battle over the company between the McMahons would be epic.
