After a monumental Royal Rumble, plans for WrestleMania are still up in the air. Every wrestling fan has an idea of what they would want to see at the show of shows, but, at this point, every match idea in this piece is pure speculation and conjecture. Check out what we think the card should look like:
Andre the Giant Battle Royal:
The generic card filler, anyone who isn’t featured on the main card is booked here.
Charlotte vs. Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks:
Let’s face it, past divas matches have been targeted as a “Piss break.” If WWE and the wrestling crowd, in general, wants to “give divas a chance,” there needs to be great and non-repetitive match put on by said divas. The reason Bailey is so loved by wrestling fans, is her matches are fantastic. NXT is praised because of good story telling and great performances. These divas need to shine the same way at WrestleMania.
Winner and Still Divas Champion, Charlotte.
Show Opener: TLC Triple Threat Tag Team Title Match
New Day vs. The Usos vs. The Dudley Boyz: In recent years, “gimmick” matches have become commonplace and cliché. It’s a fact and a sad one at that. It’s gotten to the point that WWE has gimmick PPVss. It’s sickening to the point that these once great match stipulations have lost their value. But in certain scenarios, these matches can once again become great. This match should be a “spot-fest,” a table-crushing, ladder-bending phenomenon that leaves every viewer breathless. Let’s face it, folks, the New Day is the best thing going today in the world of WWE Programming. If we are going to start WrestleMania out in a big way, we need to start it off with the New Day. The Usos, are always a delight to watch in matches, even though in the given months they have become repetitive. The Dudley Boyz are a legendary tag team that have dropped the ball since returning last August. The Dudley Boyz need to re-define their legacy to the WWE Universe and at WrestleMania they should reclaim what’s been there’s many times.
Winner and new Tag Team Champions, The Dudley Boyz.
United States Championship:
Rey Mysterio vs. Kalisto: Since winning the United States title, Kalisto has been quite the appeal to the WWE Universe. Whether it’s his finisher, or his top rope maneuvers, he has made a name for himself and has also distanced himself from the “Botchman” Sin Cara. But almost anywhere you read, there is always comparisons between Kalisto and the master of the 619, Rey Mysterio. So, why not settle this argument at WrestleMania? With Kalisto beating Rey Mysterio, it’s a passing of the torch moment that can only elevate Kalisto.
Winner and Still U.S Champion, Kalisto.
Brock Lesnar W/Paul Heyman vs. Bray Wyatt w/The Wyatt Family: This match was teased before the Royal Rumble and it makes perfect sense. The Wyatts will cost Lesnar the match at Fastlane, and thus, we will have this at Mania.
Winner, Bray Wyatt.
Dean Ambrose vs. Chris Jericho vs. Dolph Ziggler: After losing a ladder match at WrestleMania 31, Ambrose needs a victory in his WrestleMania win column. As one of the most “over” faces in the company Ambrose needs a win in his WrestleMania record, and who better to beat than an accomplished pro-Dolph Ziggler, and the legendary Y2J!
Winner, Dean Ambrose
Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens: This potential match was heavily teased during the Royal Rumble. Both of these competitors have a lengthy Indy-wrestling background and know how to steal the show. The story for this one is simple, Zayn eliminated Owens at the rumble and K.O wants revenge. Zayn wants to create his first and most memorable WrestleMania moment, the kicker? So does Owens.
Winner, Sami Zayn
WWE World Heavyweight Championship
A.J Styles W/ Daniel Bryan vs Roman Reigns W/The Rock vs HHH W/Stephanie McMahon: Nobody wants to see Reigns take on The Game one on one. If The Rock couldn’t get his cousin over at last year’s Rumble, there’s simply no chance in hell he will get over on the showcase of the immortals. If Daniel Bryan can’t compete, he should be in the corner of a fellow underdog. Yes, history will repeat itself. Styles is the new Bryan, he is the crowd favorite. He will sneak his way into the WrestleMania Main Event…and win. I think it’s the best interest of WWE to turn Roman heel at the conclusion of this match, whether it’s attacking his cousin Dwayne, or beating an exhausted A.J Styles. Roman needs a character change and WrestleMania is the biggest way to execute it.
Winner and New WWE World Heavyweight Champion, A.J Styles
Undertaker vs John Cena Now, we know what you’re saying. “Isn’t Cena injured?” Yes. But with recent news and IWC chatter, it’s starting to look like the master of the attitude adjustment might be able to compete at the showcase of the immortals. This match should be a classic, With The Undertaker standing tall after an embrace with Cena.
Winner, the Undertaker.
