Booking the Road to WrestleMania: My Way
by, 02-21-2014 at 05:08 PM (2022 Views)
The Road to WrestleMania hasn't quite met my expectations so far so I thought I'd show you guys what I would have liked to see. Starting from the turn of 2014 I'll blog about how I would have booked The Road to WrestleMania.
I wouldn't change much about the lead up to the Royal Rumble, the only things I would change are:
- I'd scrap the Lesnar/Big Show feud
- When Batista comes out wanting to win the rumble, Lesnar makes his return and says he's winning it
- I would have kept the Daniel Bryan face turn till later
- I'd play up the fact that Ryback gave Ziggler a concussion
Royal Rumble Card
30 Man Royal Rumble Match: Last four = Bryan, Wyatt, Reigns and Punk (in that order)
Randy Orton (c) v John Cena: Cena wins via DQ
Divas Championship Match
AJ Lee (c) v Naomi: AJ wins via help from Tamina

-Bryan protects Wyatt from being eliminated throughout the match
-Bryan wins Royal Rumble after last eliminating Wyatt, turning face
-CM Punk eliminated by an already eliminated Kane
-Batista eliminates Lesnar then Lesnar eliminates Batista
-Reigns out shines Rollins and Ambrose in the rumble
-Ziggler returns and goes straight for Ryback, eliminating him
In the lead up to the Elimination Chamber the following storylines occur:

-Batista constantly calls out Lesnar but to no answer until Paul Heyman explains that Lesnar will come out when the time is ready

-Bryan and Wyatt feud over him leaving the Wyatt family

Cena is forced to sign a contract that if he loses his career is over. Mr. Mahon returns and adds another stipulation: if HHH loses, he retires.
-Undertaker returns but before he can speak, the lights go out again. Sting appears and the two have a stare down. Over the weeks they start off complimentary to one another as a sign of respect but eventually dark mind games come into play.
