WRESTLEMANIA

Post by goldustismyhero on Mon 29 Feb 2016, 12:40 pm

Cant believe there isn't a thread about the granddaddy of them all, the show of shows Wrestlemania.

I'm optimistic that this years show will surprise a lot of people and be a good one

HHH vs Reigns will be a brutal match and a passing of the torch moment
Lesnar vs Ambrose will be even more brutal
Shane Vs Taker shane will take some big bumps and will surprise people

Then theres matches for AJ, Y2J, Wyatt, Kalisto, New Day, Owens, Ziggler, Divas

Anyone else looking forward to it?

It's not the Mania I was hoping for in Texas but I'm sure that a number of matches will turn out to be very good, I'm especially looking forward to the Lesnar/Ambrose one.

Shanes 46. I cant imagine him taking any bumps close to what he was taking.

Its looking like New Day vs The League of Nations which I couldnt care less about.

They seem to be going with this Y2AJ thing for some reason, so unless Jericho turns heel (again, three weeks later) to set them into the IC title picture I dont know whay they'll be doing.

Theres nothing for the Wyatts and right now they mean nothing. I'll be surprised if they get anything other that the Battle Royal.

Sasha vs Charlotte will be good, Charlotte needs an opponent like Sasha to lead a match so hopefully it can live up to the hype. I'd rather see Sasha vs Becky instead.

Who is Kalisto going to defend the US title against? I really dont want to see another Del Rio match but they've not really got anyone else. The Miz? Ryback? Stardust? Hold me back.

Theres still time to build stuff so I feel im being overly pessimistic, but the last few months of TV havent exactly filled me with confidence.

And Im still not sold on Shane vs Taker. Too rushed too soon.

Although Taker obviously lost the streak v Lesnar he's still a huge huge deal at Mania and this to me as it stands is not a Mania match Taker should be in. I know (well hope) they'll build on it prior but when you consider his opponents since the streak meant something then Shane really isn't one you'd waste what few appearances Taker has left on.

It would make more sense to have Shane face the League of Nations at this point, given they have recent history with McMahon.

Is shane actually 100% wrestling or is this one of those deals were shane will call upon his past WCW ties and handpick an opponent for Taker to represent him?

Id feel a lot more pumped up if there was even a slight chance that the main event was going any other way than Reigns win, at the minute its too predictable for me to get excited about. Im not going to sit and whine that Reigns is being forced on the audience, while i dont like him its not his fault that bosses are putting him in this position, i just wish that this match was one that could go either way. The main event of the biggest event of the year shouldnt be so easy to call. I know the same can be said about taker/hbk 2 or taker/hhh HIAC but these were special because of who was involved, reigns is wayyyyyyyyy off reaching that level. Who knows though, likely that my low expectations will work in their favour

HHH vs Reigns just screams HHH vs Cena from Wrestlemania 22 to me, HHH will be the face here and Reigns' every hit will get booed. While it makes sense from a storyline perspective, this is the worst possible way to get Reigns over as the big face of the WWE.

This Shane/Vince story is great but doesn't need to the name or appeal of Undertaker involved. I would have gone for Batista returning representing Shane vs Sheamus (and league of nation) acting as Vince's lackies.

I'm still hoping from Taker vs Cena (or Sting) for that matter.

This whole Y2AJ thing will either lead to a tag title challenge or IC title. Jericho, Styles and Owens could steal the show.

Whatever happens, it's Wrestlemania and I always look forward to it know matter what the card is.

I'm happy the big names aren't there. I want to see these people have a WrestleMania.

Diva's ladder match? If it's Sasha vs Charlotte could be a way to keep someone like Becky involved at some point down the line.

Disagree here entirely, Vince is at risk of losing everything here, the booking of this match from his prespective is perfect, in Kayfabe if you're Vince McMahon and need to rely on someone to do the business for younat WrestleMania then who is the best man for the job? No one else comes close to The Undertaker, from Vinces prespective Shane would only get what he wants if he proves himself, how is Shane handpicking someone to do his dirty work proving himself? For Vince this is the high stakes, this is all on red in Vegas, for that you stack the deck...hand picking Shaemus or anyone else other than the truely top bracket guys (Rock, Brock, Taker, Cena, Austin) would make the angle seem cheap and far less important than it's supposed to be.

This time last week my excitement level for WM was at an all time high of 7/10 (not that I think Shane vs taker would be good, but more hopeful that taker would reject vince and then he would get cena or something). This week I'm back down to 3/10. App miz beating dolph is to create an exciting match!? I'm guessing muti person match for a belt...sorry but years and years of 50/50 booking just makes everyone weak.

Plus we still don't know how rock and stone cold will be appearing. I wonder if they actually have a plan or just wing it week by week.
