If I booked Wrestlemania XXX today….



wrestlemania 30

By Tom G

Lots going on with WWE right now, be it on TV or behind the scenes. I think we think we know what many of the matches for Wrestlemania XXX will be, however what if we were all wrong? Here’s how I would book the big event if I had just gotten around to it today:

MAIN EVENT FOR THE WWE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP

Champion Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan

What, you say? What about Batista? Well, read further. Here’s the angle: Orton narrowly escapes Bryan in the Elimination Chamber setting up Bryan as the unofficial no. 1 contender. While fans angered about Bryan not being in the Royal Rumble, it was all part of a bigger Bryan push that culminates at Wrestlemania.

NO-DQ STREET FIGHT

CM Punk vs. Batista

We’ve been worked! With Punk “leaving” WWE because of his personal issues, Batista steps up and says if Punk is man enough to come back and stop babying, he’ll give up his shot at the title for a shot at Punk. Punk accepts and a new feud is born. (Bonus fun: winner gets title shot at next PPV.)

STREAK-ON-THE-LINE MATCH

Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

We’re expecting this one, but what we’re not expecting is Sting appearing at the end of the match and challenging Undertaker to a Wrestlemania XXXI match. This will allow for a slow build to a match many wanted to see 10 years ago. It also gives Sting a year to get in his best shape.

WRESTLEMANIA LEGACY MATCH

John Cena, Ultimate Warrior & Chris Jericho vs. Kane, Kevin Nash & X Pac

To celebrate 30 years of ‘Mania, top stars from the big three eras will team in a special attraction. Hulk Hogan will be in the corner of Cena’s team with Roddy Piper in the corner of Kane’s team. Pat Patterson to referee.

TRIPLE THREAT MATCH: CRACKS IN THE SHIELD

Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns

The Shield will finally come to an end with this triple threat match, which booked properly will give all three guys a push into singles stardom.

WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP FATAL FOURWAY

New Age Outlaws vs. Uso’s vs. Harper & Rowan vs. Rey Mysterio & Sin Cara

Not sure the Outlaws will still have gold at XXX, but a match with multiple teams will add some excitement to the tag division.

BROTHER vs. BROTHER

Cody Rhodes vs. Goldust

Problems will begin to arise between the former tag champs leading to this long-awaited match.

30 MAN LEGENDS OF WRESTLEMANIA BATTLE ROYAL

Here’s the catch-all match that will feature main roster stars not in another match, as well as a dozen or so legends. This will be made for Bray Wyatt to win, giving him the opportunity to take out stars from various eras.

DIVAS CHAMPIONSHIP LUMBERJILL MATCH

A.J. Lee vs. Natalya

Another opportunity to feature some former Divas, Natalya will get her chance at the gold on the big stage. Bonus points if they bring back Candice Michelle. I miss Candice Michelle.

Personally, I thought WWE dropped the ball with Wrestlemania 25. Time to give the fans what they want and honor the history of the organization. What matches do you think will happen?

  5. Nick A says:

    Really, we’re running fantasy booking silliness on this site?

  6. Scott II says:

    If everything is built right, I’m for this

  7. 2912clover says:

    Please get a job with the WWE, you’ve just written a better PPV than I’ve seen in years

  8. Wes says:

    Thank the Lord you’re not an actual booker.

  9. Michael says:

    I see all of these people complaining, yet only one person (and a person who DIDN’T complain at that) posted their idea for a WrestleMania XXX card.

    If you criticize, make sure you back it up with your own ideas. If not, you have no ground to stand on.

  10. FrischDVH says:

    I would rewrite the Punk Batista thing to go as such: Punk goes out on RAW to give a goodbye speech, Batista interrupts and calls him a pansy and challenges him to a match. Punk says only if he puts the title shot up for grabs. Batista agrees, but if Punk loses, he has to work for the WWE for a year. Punk agrees. Cut to Elimination Chamber.

    At the Chamber Randy is alone and the last door to open is Bryan’s. Swerve, the door doesn’t work. The ref ultimately counts Bryan out. The crowd is ballistic. Also, Punk wins over Batista. Cut to next night on Raw.

    Triple H is on the Mic yelling at the audience who is raining crap on him because the chamber’s conclusion. Punk comes out and taunts him. Punk asks if the title shot can be transferred via a match like last night, if it was legit. Trips says yes, then Punk challenges Bryan to a match. Trips adds Batista Triple threat Bryan wins.

  11. Guestbooker 2.0 says:

    I would just throw out an idea to keep Triple H off of the card but would allow WWE to continue with its current arc since we know they will anyways. I would have Ziggler get in to the Chamber as the third person is eliminated and coming out of the cage, and deliver a beat down to Bryan. The next night Ziggler reveals he has joined the authority because he is sick of trying to get ahead in spite of them. He could be the corporate heel for them and put on a good match with Bryan at Mania. He could carry that position for months and it immediately pushes another superstar to the main event level that the fans are behind. When his eventual turn did take place he would get a huge crowd reaction and they’d have a face star that the crowd would love.

  12. Guestbooker 2.0 says:

    And as far Randy Orton goes, I’d have him drop the title at Mania and have the Authority totally turn on him as a loser. Let Randy start to go crazy again and start hearing “voices”. He could return to the Legend Killer persona and take out all of Triple H’s boys. Carry out that program to a SummerSlam showdown with Triple H that would have months of build behind it and would more than likely have gotten the crowd behind Orton again by then.

  13. Jake says:

    Batista vs brock
    Undertaker vs Cena
    Bryan v HHH w/stephanie
    Reigns v Ziggler IC/US unification match

    Thats the top half anyway. Should have a huge tage match in the bottom card somewhere..

  14. Stonz says:

    Hell I agree with 2912clover – this would be a damn good card!

  15. Matt says:

    Thank you all :) and to Guestbooker 2.0 you got a really good idea to…just a thought and I want your opinion, I like your final showdown idea between Triple H and Orton, but what do you reckon if it was a Hell in a Cell match? They’ve never had a HIAC match as long as their rivalry has gone on for…and if the crowd are behind Orton at that point, have a stipulation where if Orton loses, he’s fired, if Triple H loses, he must retire as CEO of WWE

  16. Deathedge says:

    My personal card:
    Pre-Show: Rey Mysterio vs Sin Cara
    I would also want to build up to a Mask vs Mask rematch between them at SummerSlam. Yes, that’s a long time, but I think that time is needed to make it meaningful.

    AJ Lee vs Natayla Steel Cage Match
    Keeps Tamina and the Total Divas out. Also, would be unique.

    Celebrity Battle Royal
    Any and all celebs (and a few legends) would be thrown here. David Arquette wins after Kane throws Pete Rose out.

    Goldust vs Cody Rhodes

    Bray Wyatt vs Dean Ambrose- US Title Match

    Big E Langston vs Fandango- Intc title
    I’m really just picking Fandy because I liked their RAW match and can’t really think of anyone else…

    New Age Outlaws vs The Usos vs Rollins and Reigns vs The Real Americans- Tag Team Titles

    Triple H vs Daniel Bryan
    The stip is that if Bryan wins, he’ll be added to the WWE title match.

    The Undertaker vs Brock Lesner

    Batista vs Randy Orton vs Daniel Bryan- WWE Title
    Bryan wins by locking Batista in the No Lock.
