Wrestlemania 29 is in the books. Everyone is wondering what matches will we be seeing next year. Tons of rumored matches already being discussed. I chose to try something different with blogs to spice things up. Have a booking challenge 1x a month just for fun instead of all the crazy top 10s. I know what you are thinking? Booking Wrestlemania 30 so soon? If I do it during Wrestlemania season....people won't book the matches they particularly want. They will book matches that are rumored to take place. Of course we have rules such as no more than 10 matches. I'd also like to see at least 1 tag match along with the majority of the titles on the line. Put in bold the matches you are booking and tell me how you would build the feud up to make fans want to see it. Include who you would have as Rumble winner as well. That is about it. Here is how I'd book WM 30:
Tag Team Turmoil for Tag titles: Jack Swagger/Cesaro(C) vs Rey Mysterio/Sin Cara vs Sheamus/Del Rio vs Christian/Tyson Kidd vs Kofi/Big E Langston-I don't believe Cesaro will receive the type a push I'd like to see based on reports. I also don't believe great things will happen for Swagger since he lost the world title match vs Del Rio at Mania. I figure a tag team would be good for both parties. Swagger America type of theme with Cesaro joining. Have virtually every tag team who works in America, but is from a different country. Tyson Kidd/Christian wins tag titles. Student/teacher type of situation here with Kidd getting a big head after this. Develops a feud and a singles career after their tag title run. Kofi turns heel and joins Henry's stable along with Langston.
IC title: Fandango(C) vs Mark Henry vs Big Show vs Kane-Monsters who are really serious vs a dancer. 3 of the biggest monsters in the company wanting Fandango's IC title. Fandango somehow some way finds a way to pick up a victory. Main reason for this is because they needed on the show as well meaning the vets in this match.
US title: Damien Sandow(C) vs Cody Rhodes w/Dusty Rhodes-Sandow is one of my favs in WWE right now. Putting down and insulting the intelligence of fans while being the US champion. Dusty doesn't like the constant disrespect Sandow how has to the WWE fans. Claims America needs a champion to be proud of, so it takes a while, but Dusty finally motivates Cody to challenge and defeat his former tag team partner on the biggest stage of them all. Call the moment: America's Dream!
Daniel Bryan vs Chris Jericho-I know they have faced, but I'd love to see a feud between these two. The matches they could put on certainly would be entertaining. The comparisons continue with Bryan and you know who. Can they outshine that feud from the 2000s? That will be a hard task to follow. Either 1 heel or face it would be solid. Winner=Daniel Bryan!
WHC title: Wade Barrett(C) vs (RR winner)Ryback-Got Ryback winning the world title from Ziggler at some point. What top face should besides him? Doubt Dolph will have it for an entire year so why isn't Ryback champion? MITB winner, Wade Barrett cashes it in after a beat down by Mark Henry and his new stable. Rematch happens, but of course Barrett cheats his way to victory. Ryback wins Rumble to end up to be the one to defeat Wade Barrett for the WHC at Wrestlemania.
Dolph Ziggler w/AJ vs HHH w/Steph-Ziggler has been compared to HBK. Love to see how good a match him and HHH would be. I know they have battled in the past specifically when he was with the Spirit Squad. Dolph/AJ sorta reminds you a bit of HHH/Steph. I was thinking mixed tag, but I think it is better just 1 on 1 with each in their mans corner. Of course involvement in the match. Dolph wins of course proving in their own minds they were the best power couple of all-time.
Special ref Paul Heyman: Brock Lesnar vs CM Punk-You gotta wonder how long WWE will keep these two from each other. Like they don't know Paul Heyman is managing someone else. Paul Heyman is forced into this situation basically to make a decision. Who are you with? Punk/Brock lose team vs team Survivor Series match. Each trying to blame the loss on the other. Punk mentions, maybe if you actually competed more than 2x a year maybe we would have won. Brock responds maybe if you were a foot taller you would say it to my face. Face-off and Heyman is in between the two. Lesnar wins thanks to Heyman. Lets be honest here, who needs Heyman more of the two? Punk or Lesnar? Punk gets a rematch at Extreme Rules and wins....everyones happy!!
The Rock vs Randy Orton-They did compete in a tag match at WM20. I've always been interested to see how these 2 3rd generation superstars would do in a feud together. Legend Killer gimmick and he wants to add another name to that list. I'd have Orton win here.
Main Event WWE title: The Undertaker vs John Cena-To add to the prestige of the WWE title. Undertaker asks for his last Wrestlemania to challenge for 1 last shot at the WWE title. I know many people would hate to live through a long title reign, but wouldn't it be better to say WWE title than to give Cena the praise such as you are the man in the WWE. That is why I choose to face you? That is how I want Taker to go out. In the main event vs the franchise in the WWE. Win or lose, really doesn't matter to me. I've been wanting Taker/Cena feud since Cena became a main event player. Never did happen, however they did have a match or 2 on random Raws. That is the nod, I believe Taker deserves.
There you have it!! My Wrestlemania 30 card with a little less than a year away. What is your card? How did I do? Are you up to the challenge? Goodness, I hope I don't see Sting, Austin, or something like that until it is confirmed they will be wrestling in the event. In Stings case, at least under contract with WWE. That is all....hope you enjoyed. Thanks for reading!
