WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross believes that WWE officials decided to hit the reset button on their creative for both Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live at the biggest event of the year, WrestleMania 35.
There were several title changes at Sunday’s WrestleMania 35 pay-per-view event in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium on the WWE Network. The biggest changes include Kofi Kingston winning the WWE Title, Seth Rollins beating Brock Lesnar for the Universal Title and Becky Lynch winning both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Titles from Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey.
In the mind of Ross, he thinks this was all by design as part of a reset moving forward with storylines.
“You don’t crown seven new champions without being displeased with their predecessors. You don’t have massive changes in your booking, unless there was some disillusionment,” Ross says. “So now they’ve hit the reset button across the board.”
“Everything’s new. Everybody’s got a chance to create their own legacies and stardom,” Ross says. “They’re going to get the ball. Now it’s dependent upon them.”
