WrestleMania, traditionally, is not the domain of the shocking moment. WWE creates certain expectations, and more often than not delivers upon them to provide fans with the happy ending elusive to the other 364 days of the year.

You're going to see a slow and methodical Triple H match bereft of heat and a half hour in length. You're going to see an André The Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner plucked from a hat and sent right the f*ck back to obscurity.

And so on.
