Heat on an agent for the Cole-Lawler match at Wrestlemania
Apr 10, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck
Internally, WWE has been examining last weekend’s Wrestlemania. There is heat on agent Dean Malenko since he was responsible for laying out the Michael Cole vs. Jerry “The King” Lawler Wrestlemania match. The feeling is that the match was not only bad, but also went on way too long — especially the amount of offense ring announcer Cole got in on Lawler.
There is also a lot of displeasure with the double count out finish in the main event – John Cena challenging The Miz for the WWE championship. As with most aspects of creative, Vince McMahon still makes the final calls. McMahon was upset the match order leaked out, and he made several changes during the weekend, and the decision to bump the Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan United States title match was made the day of the event.
