I decided to challenge myself into booking the best show I can with both TNA and WWE talent pools. Trying to sell a huge ppv featuring TNA vs WWE. It is a bit similar to something AWA and other territories did to try to compete with WWE and NWA. For those of you who would like to challenge yourself as well here are the rules you must go by, leave your card in the comment section so I can see it, and have some fun. The rules: #1: Don't book gimmick matches plz!! If I would allow gimmick matches we would probably see crazy cards like Cena vs Roode in a cage match, monster ball match with god knows how many different people involved. Keep it simple plz don't go out of your way to book everyone. No battle royals either. #2 Every match has got to be TNA vs WWE. Someone representing their brand. Don't book fatal 4 ways or 3 ways. Keep it WWE vs TNA and not WWE vs WWE or TNA vs TNA. #3 Use active wrestlers who are actually on the show every week and who can actual wrestle. Hogan can't get in the ring and plz don't respond with some stupid Cena joke. No Hogan, Flair, Taker, Sting, HHH, Rock, and I think you get the point. #4 10 match limit we don't want to get crazy and book 15-20 matches on the show. #5 Book the top draws/superstars. Don't be some mark booking jobbers who can't even make a Raw/Impact/SD while keeping guys like Jeff Hardy, Cena, or even Punk off the show. You must use the top guys!! Almost forgot, book at least one Divas vs Knockout match of your 10 matches. Let us have a bit of fun with this!! Your goal is to get people to buy your fake show. LOL!
AJ Styles vs John Cena-One could argue this, but I believe AJ is the face of TNA wrestling. Been there since day 1 and has been one of my favorites in TNA since I began watching til now. John Cena is without question the face of the company. Why not have the faces of each company face in a one on one match?
Kurt Angle vs Daniel Bryan-Submission, technical wrestling!! In my opinion, be the match of the night without question if my show actually happened. Kurt Angle is and has been my favorite wrestler for some time now despite his lame twitter rants. The match that decides who's the best in the world. I like Punk and Jericho, but Angle/Bryan are better in the ring if you ask me.
Mr.Anderson vs Orton-Mr.Anderson hates Randy Orton because he believes Orton caused him to lose his job in WWE. Similar to a Hardy/Edge fued in 2005.
Kane vs Abyss-Abyss has always reminded me of two characters from WWE's past. Those two characters were Mankind and Kane which is why I booked him in a match with Kane. Storyline I'd use would be Kane has been watching him quietly rise to the top of the ranks in TNA making a name for himself imitating him.
Bobby Roode vs Sheamus-This match may be the most weird of the show, but I'm going to state why I booked this match. Before Roode's new look came about he looked strangely similar to HHH. Guess what, Sheamus has the same facial hair as HHH. Terrible reason to book the match that way, but you know how it is.
CM Punk vs Jeff Hardy-Hacing Jeff/Punk on the same show with no confrontation would be a disappointment if you ask me. Who ended Jeff's last run in WWE? CM Punk!! Just natural that they cross paths again.
Samoa Joe vs Chris Jericho-You look at WWE's roster trying to find Joe an opponent is tough. I went with Jericho because they are both submission type wrestlers which would help it make a bit of sense. Punk vs Joe was considered, but who would face Jeff Hardy? Jeff is probably the biggest draw in TNA....he's gotta be on the show. Storyline I'd probably go with would be Jericho doesn't truly believe everything he has been saying such as he is the best in the world at what he does. Why can't it be true? He hasn't defeated Samoa Joe!!
Cody Rhodes vs James Storm-Debate whether to have Miz or Rhodes vs Storm, but I chose Rhodes. Why Rhodes vs Storm? Storm's history as being a redneck like Cody Rhodes father. Cody however hasn't embraced his father's roots in the business. Cody over the years has been worrying about his looks, being clean and so forth by forgetting where he came from which would probably be the storyline I'd go with.
Rey Mysterio vs Austin Aries-Why Rey Mysterio vs Aries? In TNA the X-Division is a no limits division mainly for smallers wrestlers like Rey Mysterio and other cruiserweights. Rey is a huge fan fav among the kids and Aries can be one of the best heels in the biz. Guys like Rey opened doors for guys like Aries to have a division of their own. Which probably would be my storyline heading into the match.
ODB vs Eve-Why Eve some may ask? What heel on the WWE roster draws heat like she does. Why ODB? ODB does get a strong reaction from the crowd and is a strong face. ODB and Eve are complete opposites which makes the match entertaining.
I'm certainly planning on doing an attitude era type of one. May do a 3rd featuring ROH in the mix. Hope you liked the card I booked. Welcome critics along with some praise wouldn't hurt. Just something different that I thought would be fun for several other bloggers out there who may have read this.
