The original plans sound better for the most part, other than Taker having a brief title reign. At this point in his career it would have served no purpose. Styles could have retained the title entering into a triple threat with Randy Orton (who still wins the Rumble) and Bray Wyatt who would still have "summoned" bugs out onto the ring. This spares us of having the AJ VS Shane match and it also stops a pointless short title reign for Taker. Why would the original plans call for that if he's just going to lose it back to Styles again? Seriously? I hate short title reigns but they go from being annoying to being POINTLESS if you lose the title right back to the same guy you beat in the first place, at the next show. Cena VS Taker would have been way better than Cena/Nikki VS Miz/Maryse at least. I have no idea what Roman Reigns would have done in this scenario if Cena faced Taker, perhaps join Lesnar and Goldberg in the Universal Championship match going on to win it himself. Miz would probably end up in the Andre Battle Royal which Strowman could have won instead of Mojo, but that's a whole other discussion.
"And that's the bottom line, because DAGGER DIAS said so!"
