Injuries have put a dent in the WWE roster and the Wrestlemania card. The card is not the dream card WWE was hoping for, but I still think it’s quite solid.
With that being said I can find a few ways to improve the card/ways WWE could have spiced up the feuds. Here’s my fantasy booking of Wrestlemania 32:
Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal:
This contest needs to be more exciting. Why not create a stipulation where the winner gets to have a victory ceremony the next night on Raw. The winner would also have the ability to challenge anyone on the roster to a match (excluding the WWE WHC). If I were booking this, I would hand the match to Damien Sandow. He finished 2nd place last year. His “stunt double” gimmick with The Miz was culminating at the time and his popularity was soaring. I thought he was robbed.
Give the match to Sandow this year. It would be unexpected and my stipulation would allow him to establish a character of his own. Have him come out on Raw the next night and rant about his diminished role in the company. He could go on to challenge for a mid-card championship.
The Usos vs. The Dudley Boyz:
C’mon how is this not a Tables Match? Really? We all know one of these teams will get put through tables by the end of the match just for the hell of it. Why not make it the formal stipulation?
The Total Divasvs. BAD and BlondeTeam Paige vs. Team Bella:
This is a pointless match in the grand scheme of things. I would have some fun with it. WWE should have had a mini-rivalry between Brie Bella and Paige. In their “feud” for leader of the Diva locker room, a “pick-up” match of sorts could erupt.
Bella would think she could lead any team of Divas into battle against Paige and vice-versa. Perhaps on a Raw or SmackDown the two could do live picks for their teams. It would create all sorts of drama (being forced to pick a rival on your team, who gets picked first/last, etc.).
Sorry Big Guy, this should be Kalisto vs. Sin Cara. Off to the ATG Memorial Battle Royal for you Mr. Ryback!
Kalisto should instead be wrestling in a vintage clash of tag team partners. In the lead to Wrestlemania, Sin Cara should have turned on Kalisto. He could have uttered how Kalisto abandoned the Lucha Dragons in order to focus on his singles career. In turn, Kalisto could counter that he’s talented enough to actually have a singles career!
AJ Styles vs. Chris Jericho
30 minute Iron Man match. Nuff said.
Charlotte vs. Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks for the Divas Championship:
We all know what needs to happen.
The New Day vs. The League of Nations:
Instead of a Kiss Me Arse match, we’ll be having a Kiss Me Booty Match. Sorry Sheamus.
7 Man Ladder MatchKevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn in a Ladder Match for the Intercontinental Title:
In my vision, WWE would do a better job of showcasing the bad blood and importance of this feud. We’ll leave this as a one-on-one match to focus on the core rivalry. A multi-man IC Title match at Wrestlemania (again) would be too distracting and scattershot.
Dolph Ziggler vs. The Miz in a Submission Match:
Because they shouldn’t be in this year’s IC title match, but also don’t deserve to be in the ATG Memorial Battle Royal.
Dean Ambrose vs. Brock Lesnar:
Just don’t let the Wyatt Family interfere and this one should be great as is. Also, can we just call this a Texas Death Match? Thanks!
Shane McMahon vs. The Undertaker:
Just as The Undertaker is about to win, Jon Stewart comes running down the ramp with a steel chair. He hits Undertaker, allowing Shane to win the match…oh wait never mind, I thought this was SummerSlam 2015.
In that case, Seth Rollins can emerge from the bottom of the ring with a cinderblock. He can bash Taker in the head with it, then deliver a Curb Stomp on said cinderblock (yeah, the Curb Stomp’s back!).
McMahon takes the pinfall win. Seth does the dirty work for Vince McMahon (him Shane and Seth all have a deal) and Rollins sets up a future date with Undertaker.
Triple H vs. Roman Reigns for the WWE WHC:
Right off the bat, this match needs a special guest referee. And the lucky winner is none other than Vincent Kennedy McMahon.
In reality, Vince is conspiring behind the scenes. He turns on Triple H by the end of the match, cementing an alliance with Roman Reigns. Vince’s love for Roman will now be public knowledge. Vince’s reasoning for abandoning Triple H: H has gotten too power-hungry for his own good and cannot be controlled with the weight of the company, let alone the WWE WHC.
Vince, Shane and Roman all stand victorious in the ring together.
