WWE stretches the truth to match their story lines and they can do it because the majority of the fans are new and don’t remember things from the past. Last night, JBL was promoting that the Michael Cole vs. Jerry Lawler match was going to be in the main event, and thus, Michael Cole was the first wrestler to make his debut in the WrestleMania main event.
I’m almost sure that Michael Cole has wrestled before. But let’s help JBL stretch that a bit. Maybe he meant that Michael Cole was the first wrestler to make his WrestleMania debut in the main event of a WrestleMania show.
Well, you’d have to look no further than the first WrestleMania where four men made their WrestleMania debut in the main event. But let’s not get into specifics. We know what he “meant”. If you want to be JBL clear, wouldn’t this man in this video below have met the criteria before Michael Cole?
Yep, Mr. T.
