The Rebel Lion's Den: MY WrestleMania XXX Wish...

Welcome, wrestling aficionados....Thanks for swingin' by the Den! WrestleMania season is far from here, but it's something that is always prevalent in my mind, so I put together my dream WM XXX card. I'm not saying this is what the card will or should be; Just sharing my personal dream scenario. I based my card loosely on current WWE storylines to make my card as believable as possible.
PRE-SHOW 20-MAN BATTLE ROYAL
The last 2 men standing will be the opening match of WM XXX. This match can be a staple of WM every year to give guys that won't be on WM a little rub beforehand. My match would have:
Alberto Del Rio
Big E. Langston
And my first match of WM XXX would be....
Bray Wyatt vs. Chris Jericho
Should be a good match with Wyatt getting WM exposure while putting Jericho over at WM for once!
UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Jack Swagger vs. Antonio Cesaro (C)
Zeb Coulter takes to Cesaro, leaving Swagger odd-man-out. Swagger face turn, takes on former mentor & stablemate, who is once again U.S. champ.
Sheamus vs. Ryback
They teased at this rivalry earlier this year. Since you need 2 of your biggest stars on the card, you can have a marquee match-up with 2 tough s.o.b.'s that will beat the snot out of each other.
WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara vs. Team Rhodes Scholars (C)
The Shield lose the tag team titles to Rey & Sin (starting a riff within The Shield), then Rey & Sin lose them a couple months later to Rhodes Scholars. This match can serve a couple of alternative purposes, too. It can allow TRS to do what Cody did with the IC belt & bring back the old WWE Tag Team belts, and the WWE can still attempt to break the "masked audience" record they have been rumored to want to try with Rey & Sin.
INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Tyson Kidd vs. Curtis Axel (C)
Axel keeps the IC belt all the way through to WM, reboosting it's prestige. Kidd comes back & gets a nice push. Not only would they put on a possible show-stealing match, they would be paying homage to the classic Mr. Perfect-Bret Hart rivalry from the early 90's.
Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns vs. Dean Ambrose
It's time for these boys to shine, individually! The dissention starts when Rollins & Reigns lose the tag team straps, then Ambrose losing the U.S. title...cracks in the armor of the Hounds Of Justice grow until they shatter, culminating in what we've all been waiting to see.
WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Mark Henry w/ Big E. & A.J. vs. Dolph Ziggler (C)
Moths of tension with Ziggler being face leads to implosion with his stable, A.J. sides with Big E. Henry takes Big. E under his wings, then focuses his sights on the WHC. Can Ziggler overcome such insurmountable odds??
GRUDGE MATCH-LOSER LEAVES WWE
C.M. Punk vs. Brock Lesnar
We find out Paul Heyman has orchestrated Lesnar's attack on Punk. Round 1 at SummerSlam: Lesnar. Round 2 at Survivor Series: Punk. Lesnar wants revenge, Punk wants respect, they both want to settle the score....once & for all. Also, Lesnar's contract will be up so the ending can be predicated to support a number of different scenarios.
WWE CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton (C)
Orton is heel, cheats to defeat Bryan for the WWE title few months previous & in the rematch. Bryan has to win the Royal Rumble to get another shot, which he does. Ultimate underdog head-to-head with the revitalizied heel Apex Predator.
John Cena vs. The Undertaker
After losing the WWE Championship a few months back & being unsuccessful at securing a title opportunity at WM, Cena decides to achieve the one goal not achieved in his career: Beating the streak. No heel turn, just iconic face v face match. This may be UT's last go, so although no title will be on the line, this will be the climax of WM XXX.
Hope you enjoyed reading it half as much as I did creating it. Comments & critisizms always welcome!!!
