The reason for the change is reportedly because Vince McMahon feels that the number system makes the PPV feel “old.” This changes nothing in a practical sense; it is merely the logos that will change.

 
I noticed the logo during the Rumble, and remember thinking it was kind of odd. I don't want to assume anything without a real source or without hearing it from the WWE itself, but if this IS true then it's pretty dumb. A) Change for the sake of change without a good reason is unnecessary, and B) the Super Bowl and the UFC pay-per-view events are a comparable example of huge events sticking with a numbering system, to observe the history of the event, to keep track of the events for newer fans, and to magnify the importance of the event. WrestleMania is WWE's biggest source of income if I'm not mistaken. They surely can't run the risk of devaluing it the way Survivor Series and other pay-per-views have been over the years?
 
I swear to god it's like in the last few months Vince has gone full-retard.

- We noted before that Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan was in the works for WrestleMania 31 this year but apparently WWE has changed their mind.

The recent Twitter interactions between Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler are not just social media chatter as WWE is currently going with Bryan vs. Ziggler for WrestleMania.

That would be a great match IMO and a potential show stealer - not sure where on the card it would sit and to be honest I haven't seen any of the Twitter interaction between the 2.

Ziggler heel turn would be ok but not sure how they could work it given how over the top baby face he has been lately during the angle with the Authority

I like the idea of this feud running longterm but for that to happen I think Ziggler should turn heel. He's better as a heel anyway and he could possibly recruit a bodyguard or valet like he has in the past, maybe get Ric Flair in his corner like it was once rumoured was going to happen.
A feud between these two would almost be a modern day equivalent of Bret vs Shawn.

They wouldn't need to do it as a face vs heel feud either, it can be based on one up manship, with them trying to out do eachother, could work well without a face/heel interaction.

I would begin it this way but then have Ziggler turn heel to add heat to the feud after the first match, kind of how they did it with Eddie and Rey back in the day.
 
Will be interesting to see who gets the bigger pops with both working as faces.
 
I wonder what plans(if any) WWE have for Dean Ambrose at Wrestlemania as he seems to be the only current top guy with a match not being talked about. Most of the other upper tier guys have matches laid out for them already so I have a feeling he might end up stuck with the Andre the Giant battle royal.

Ambrose can win the battle royal.
 
Also have no interest in seeing Ziggler turn heel. He's fine as a face, he just needs to start cutting more promos.

Have Ambrose beat the fuck out of Foley in some gimmicky brawl.

Run the tapes from the scrapped feud years ago, I doubt anyone will remember it as it wasnt a TV storyline.

Wonder if they could get away of doing the same for Ambrose vs Regal Wink

I like the idea of Foley vs Ambrose but it wont happen as Foley is near crippled and has been ordered by Doctors to never even think about wrestling again or he'll end up in a wheel-chair, he would never pass a WWE medical anyway.
They need another decent brawler that Ambrose can have a wild match with, Kevin Owens would be good but its too soon for that to happen at this years Wrestlemania. Shame they've already done Wyatt vs Ambrose, those two in a crazy brawl would have been a great Mania match.
