Not fantasy booking really...just a match idea...

...A 16-team Tag Team tournament with 8 teams from Raw and 8 from SD. Each group of 8 is divided into 2 "divisions" of 4 each. If you want to bury some of your talent, name the divsions "Raw," "Heat," "SmackDown" and "Velocity." ;-) The final match is at WM - a four corners elimination match involving the winners of the four divisions - the "Final Four." No titles on the line, maybe a cash prize. And it consolidates the top teams from both brands into one match.

However, there's not enough teams in the WWE to pull it off.
Here's all the teams I could think of that are remotely active.

Raw:
Dudleys
La Resistance (Conway/DuPree)
Evolution (Orton/Batista)
Evolution (HHH/Flair)
Booker/RVD
Hurricane/Rosey
Jericho/Christian
Storm/Venis

Smackdown:
Rikishi/Scotty
Haas/Benjamin
Basham Bros. (Doug/Danny)
Akio/Sakoda
A.P.A. (Faarooq/Bradshaw)
London/Kidman (rumored)

WWE has it's own "March Madness". A little thing called Wrestlemania.





There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

Dusty and Nikita weren't exactly teaming on a weekly basis when they won the Crockett Cup, were they? I think it would be great for the tag division for the top singles guys to team up for a one or two-night tourney. How about two of the greatest tag-team wrestlers of the last 20 years teaming up, like HBK and Edge (if healthy)? Or you could have Christian pestering Edge for a reunion to re-prove that they are still the greatest team ever, then having Christian turn on Edge (or Edge on Christian, for that matter), costing them the tournament or right after they win. How about a "nobody likes HHH but he's trying to find a partner so he's not left out" scenario?

EDIT: I don't think the WWE could call it "March Madness", though. They'd probably want something similar but different.

Something else to think about...doing a tournament like this that culminates at WM is an untapped promotional move, since WWE could take out a half- or even full-page ad in USA Today or something and publish the brackets, as with the real March Madness.

And don't forget about Jindrak and Cade!

A cool idea, if I may say so.

One thing I've never really understood about WrestleMania...they build it up as the biggest show of the year, and rightfully so...but why don't the guys on the bottom of the card ever do anything to express an interest in it?

It's the one time of the year (well, aside from maybe the Royal Rumble) where the show itself could be the justification for the matches. No one would buy a storyline built around "it's my dream to wrestle at Unforgiven", but with WM it would work. A tournament like this unto itself might not carry much interest, but if you suddenly have 32 midcard guys simultaneously putting over the significance of the tournament because the final is at WrestleMania (maybe carries a cash prize with it, who knows...), they hype will create interest and, with it, a purpose for guys who might otherwise have nothing to do.
