Hello to the IWC. I've seen a few Wrestlemainia Cards on the Blogs here so thought I would try one of my own. I am a first time blogger, but intend to do some more in the future so any feedback is welcome. This is how I would run my Wrestlemania 28 in Miami.
Enrique Englesias to sing 'America the Beautiful'
Stay with me, I know its cheesy, but he's a Miami boy and WWE lap that stuff up. It gets better, honest.
Kane vs Christian
Christian fueds with Kane after he costs him the Heavyweight title against Orton in a last man standing match, culminating in a match at Wrestlemania. A traditional 'curtain jerker' from 2 established and solid performers. I personally didn't like the WHC match at the start of last years PPV. Although the match was good with an unexpected ending, I felt it de-valued the belt. Even match but Christian edges it with a few dirty tricks.
Winner - Christian - pinfall
Undisputed Diva championship match
Don't care. Never have, Never will.
I would get this shit over and done with as soon as possible and merge those pox ridden belts in the process. For the record, I would have Gail Kim win the thing but feel free to enter your own names. Not that it matters.
US and Intercontinental Unification match
Kofi Kingston (c) vs Cody Rhodes (c)
Maybe Rhodes takes the title from Jackson, maybe from someone else. Same with Kofi's title. What matters is they are both champions and would put on a hell of a match. Merge the belt, make it duel brand and worth something again.I miss that old Intercontinental title. I wanna see mid-to-high card matches like Hart vs Perfect or Steamboat vs Savage. As far a result goes, I love Kofi's work, but I would have to put the big belt on Rhodes
Winner - Cody Rhodes - Roll-up
WWE Tag team titles match - TLC
Alberto Del Rio/Rey Mysterio (c) vs The Miz/R-Truth vs John Morrison/Alex Riley
I miss the tag division too. The best WWE do now is to have respective heel/face tag main events on Raw. So we must make do with what we have. To be fair, there are some great combinations there, they just have to be given a chance, not chopped and changed every 2 weeks.
Mysterio is still a babyface btw. I had Del Rio trade his MITB briefcase for Mysterio's WWE contract instad of a title shot. Alberto then forced Rey into teaming for a run on the tag titles. Kinda like the HBK-JBL thing a few years back.
Del Rio is just about to grab the belts after a brutal match, when Mysterio snaps, takes him off the ladder and through a table, R-Truth has surrendered to the voices and left the Miz fighting Morrison, leaving Alex Riley to climb the ladder and snag the belts.
Winners and NEW WWE Tag Team Champions - John Morrison and Alex Riley
Losing Manager leaves WWE
Vickie Guererro with Dolph Ziggler, Wade Barrett, Mark Henry, Jack Swagger
Stephanie McMahon with Ezekiel Jackson, Drew Mcintyre, Mason Ryan, Zack Ryder
Hmmmmmmmmm. No MITB match. Lots of wrestlers with nothing to do, and in some cases, awful in singles action. I Know! Lets have an 8 man Tag match where Vickie gets fired or maybe shaved bald!
Maybe get Edge involved as a special guest referee and we are set. No Big Show, there is no place for you.
HHH brings Steph in to keep an eye on Smackdown where she inevitably feuds with Vickie, turns McIntrye face, and has him roll up Ziggler at Wrestlemania to Terminate Vickie's contract! (She will be back though. She gets great heat as a heel manager)
Winners - Team McMahon
World Heavyweight Championship Triple Threat match
Sheamus (c) vs Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton
Randy finally gets the title from a slippery Christian, down to some interference from Kane, but soon drops it to Sheamus. Sheamus performs a semi-face turn, defending the belt against Mark Henry and others, until Daniel Bryan cashes in his briefcase for his Wrestlemania shot. Randy comes out and invokes his re-match clause (He was busy with a certain Royal Rumble winner) and the triple threat is on.
I feel these three would compliment each other well and deliver a really good match. Lets have Orton punt Sheamus unconcious, only to be reversed into the Lebell lock with no chance of rescue....
Winner and NEW World Heavyweight Champion - Daniel Bryan - Submission
The Rock Vs John Cena
I hope they don't put this on last. And I hope Cena wins. Don't get me wrong, I hate Cena, but if he loses Rusty McRingrust, from Fast and Furious, after wrestling week in, week out, for championships, then it just makes a mockery of all the bullshit we have had to swallow over the last few years.
I expect style over substance, 'Peoples elbow' vs '5 Knuckle Shuffle' and general posing over wrestling. It won't be Rock/Hogan, but it won't be terrible either.
Winner - John Cena - 5 moves of doom
"Best in the World" WWE Championship match - Best of 3 falls
CM Punk (c) VS Chris Jericho
I think this match will happen regardless of whether Punk has the belt or not. The twittering has already started and the 'best in the world' tag adds extra weight.
Jericho returns at the Royal Rumble and wins, eliminating Randy Orton last, the man who put him out of action. He then turns his attention to Punk and his 'Best in the World' claim. He challenges him for his title at Wrestlemania, to which Punk adds the stipulation of 'Best of 3 falls.' Jericho accepts but, after a magnificent match, goes down 2-1 to a GTS.
Winner, Still WWE Champion and "The best in the world" CM Punk-2-1-GTS
The Streak 20-0?
Undertaker vs Mankind/Cactus Jack
Look, I HAVE really thought this through. Taker is just NOT going to be able to produce what he has in the past few years and I wouldn't want him to try. You have to put him in there with someone that can take the bumps for him, make him look powerful, work their ass off and resonate with the fans. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Mick Foley.
Now I have no idea what sort of physical condition Mick is in, or even if he is allowed inside a ring, but if he was given the chance to put Undertaker over in his last Wrestlemania match? He would jump at it, I am sure.
Honorable mentions go to Sting (past his prime, probably wouldn't be a great match), Brock Lesnar, Goldberg (Neither of whom would want to put him over. Its not about ending it boys!) and Stone Cold Steve Austin.
No, after much thought, It has to be Mick.
Foley would come out initially as Mankind but he has a Cactus shirt underneath and the mask comes off halfway through. Undertaker performs as the dead man for one last time and plants Cactus Jack for the final Tombstone, a 1-2-3 and 20-0 at Wrestlemania.
Winner and STILL undefeated at Wrestlemania - Undertaker - Tombstone
Afterwards, Taker helps Mick up, they embrace and the locker room empties of Superstars, past and present, all paying their respects to Undertaker. Finally they all form a guard of honor as Taker slowly walks back, turns one last time to drop to one knee, roll his eyes back and reach out to a huge clap of thunder.
