HBK Vs. HHH Vs. Benoit (or maybe HHH Vs. HBK w/ gets Benoit; think Wrestle Mania Ten.)

Goldberg Vs. Lesnar;(I think maybe The Rock will guest Referee. Someone needs to get the heat back after Lesnar wins)

Taker Vs. Kane;

Foley Vs. Orton;

Jericho Vs. Christian;

Eddie Guerrero Vs. Angle;

Cena Vs. Big Show;

RVD & Booker Vs. Flair & Batista (hey why not? They're not doing much with RVD & Book)if not, my gut kind of thinks maybe an RVD/Cena inter-brand match. Just a wild speculation after their Rumble interaction)

Cruiserweight battle Royal (or so Da Meltz speculates)

Token Women's threeway (they do this every year)of any combo of Molly, Lita, Trish, Jazz or Victoria;

Right now, the card looks to be:

Brock Lesnar v. Goldberg

Chris Benoit v. Triple H

The Rock & Mick Foley v. Randy Orton & Batista (Foley v. Orton makes more sense, but according to the latest news I've gotten, the tag match is still the plan)

Undertaker v. Kane

Eddie Guerrero v. Kurt Angle

Chris Jericho v. Christian

Cruiserweigh Title battle royal

Some form of a Women's Title match

That still leaves John Cena, Shawn Michaels, Rob Van Dam, Booker T, Ric Flair, Big Show, Benjamin & Haas, and probably other big name guys whom I can't think of any matches to have at the biggest event of the year.

Everyone seems to think John Cena v. Big Show will be on the show. However, I see this thing ending at No Way Out with Cena getting the title. However, that leaves both John Cena & Big Show with no feud. I was thinking of RVD v. Cena after their Rumble altercation. However, if they were going to do that, they should have started building it up last night, which they didn't, so I doubt that's in their plans.

I also see NO match for RAW's two most popular non-main-event wrestlers; Booker T and Rob Van Dam. Since Orton is in a tag match (I think) at 'Mania, maybe they could have either RVD or Booker win the IC Title from him on an episode of RAW, and then build a feud between RVD and Booker towards WreslteMania, for the title. Or maybe they'll pull a last year and leave Van Dam off the card entirely. Who knows? (Yes, I AM still bitter about that, and will continue to be so until they sign him a match for this year's WrestleMania!)

A few matches I think would be cool:

John Cena vs. Edge, in his big return match, for the IC title.

A female Elimination Chamber with Trish, Jazz, Molly, Victoria, Lita and Gail Kim.

Rey Mysterio vs. Ultimo Dragon

Randy Orton vs. Lance Storm for the IC title. I'm thinking that he could feud with Mick Foley for a bit, and then get involved with trashing ECW guys, and go through Dreamer and the Dudleys. Lance Storm could give him the sleeper match of the card.

I also like the idea of a battle royal, but not to include older guys who haven't been with WWE for years. I'd use it to showcase either Rhyno, Sean O'Haire or Chris Kanyon.

Maybe they could team Christian and Matt Hardy up to take on RVD in one more TLC match.

I'm sure they'll do great for this milestone PPV.

I like that idea a lot. Best case scenario HBK would win and go on to face Benoit. That's a dream matchup I'd like to see. And if they can SOMEHOW get Bret Hart to be a part of WM XX what better way than to second Benoit against HBK in the title match.

More likely scenario is that Triple H wins the first and second matches. Still i wouldn't mind since HBK and Benoit would both get title matches on the biggest show in history and they can both put on good matches with Triple H.

The triple threat match is good too, and who knows maybe Triple H would be willing to drop the belt as long as he's not the one pinned.

The rest of my card would be the same as most of you said, except I would put Angle vs. Eddie as the WWE CHampionship match and make Lesnar vs. Goldberg some kind of grudge match, Goldberg could even cost Lesnar the title at some point.

I also like the idea of Matt and Christian teaming up to compete in a TLC match but I don't know who they would face. I think Evolution is going to keep all the titles atleast until WM, and I can't see Flair/Batista in a TLC.

I'd LIKE to see Lance go to Smackdown, forget the face turn ever happened and have a nice little match with Cena at WM, but it's never gonna happen.

Hmm. Some of you guys are trying ... too hard.

Brock vs. Goldberg
Benoit vs. HHH
Rock & Foley vs. Orton & Batista
Undertaker vs. Kane
Guerrero vs. Angle
Michaels vs. Flair
Jericho vs. Christian (uh. winner marries Trish)
Rey & friends in a big cruiserweight shebang

"Everyone seems to think John Cena v. Big Show will be on the show. However, I see this thing ending at No Way Out with Cena getting the title."

I assume they'll have Big Show win at NWO and lose at Mania.

"build a feud between RVD and Booker towards WreslteMania, for the IC title"

That works.

''UT And Kane vs. The Dudleys'
You're taking the piss right - Undertaker and Kane has been built since 1997 for once last match. Plus rebuilt since Survivor Series. UT isn't gonna come up from the ground and tag with Kane. If he does i'll give away everything I own.

These three are definite:

Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg
Kane vs The Undertaker
Eddie Guerrero vs Kurt Angle

Then two to three matches need to be dealt to the following men: Benoit, Hunter, and Michaels, and Orton, Foley, the rest of Evolution and Rock. The best way to bring that about would be:

Benoit vs Hunter
Rock/Foley vs Orton/Batista
Flair vs Michaels

Or have Flair or HBK go up against Rock in singles or replace Flair in the tag match with Batista. I must say, though, that I like that WMX scenario to solve this WMXX problem. I was trying to figure out a way to do that with the guy left over having another match a la Bret vs Owen. I figured it could be Michaels/Benoit and HHH/Rock but then again, that didn't make sense.

However, the following would make sense:

Benoit vs Flair
Triple H vs Michaels
leading to..Benoit vs HHH

Here you have HBK and HHH resolving their conflict once and for all and HHH winning will even higher his heel heat for the main event. Meanwhile, Flair can make ANYONE look good, and if Benoit was put over Flair at the granddaddy of them all followed by going up against super heel HHH, the main event would have incredible heat. Then next month have HBK want a title shot against Benoit in Canada.

The only problem is, one, this would mean HBK is booked weaker than Benoit which is a no-no, two, this would mean HHH would have to work two matches which is a no-no, and three, this would mean HHH would have to lose. Not a chance. But man, wouldn't that be perfect.

As for the rest of the card, I'll get to it another day. :)

Yeah, I see this happening, and then Lesnar being pissed off and making it a win or quit the WWE match at Wrestlemania, with Lesnar winning, and Goldberg leaving.

Here's what I'm thinking right now:

HHH v. Benoit
Eddie v. Angle
Brock v. Goldberg
UT v. Kane
Show v. Cena
Foley v. Orton (special guest ref Rock)
Flair/Batista v. Jericho/Michaels
Bashams v. TWGTT
Six-Pack women's title match
Cruiserweight battle royale
Something with "legends of Wrestlemania" or something

Does anyone know how many hours XX is slated to be? Will it be a 3 1/2-4 hour event like years past? Longer? Seems like they have a lot of matches to get through if it's only going to be 3 1/2 hours if they want to give enough of them due time. I guess the real question is "Predict which IWC-loved wrestler gets bumped to Heat and starts a year of 'why he/she didn't make WMXX' threads."

I'm thinking the card will look like this:

- RAW World Title - Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Chris Benoit
*It just looks like its heading down this road.

- Smackdown! World Title - Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg vs. John Cena vs. The Big Show
*I'm saying this because, John Cena did say he will be in the Wrestlemania Main Event last year. Then again, it wouldn't make sense with Goldberg being involved, and seeing how he will have a feud with The Big Show soon. Plus with the No Way Out Match for the number One Contendership, I don't see Angle being involved, if it looks like he will be facing Eddie Guerrero. So during the match, it will be mostly Lesnar and Goldberg, with Cena and Big Show not being a real factor. It would work better if it was an elimination Fatal Four Way ending with Lesnar pinning Goldberg to regain his championship belt.

- Eddie Guerrero vs. Kurt Angle
*Eddie isn't going to win at No Way Out, and it really does seem that Angle is too involved with Eddie's matters. Could it be Angle who costs Eddie the win?

- The Undertaker vs. Kane
*Just expected, now.

- The Rock and Mick Foley vs. Randy Orton and Batista
*Just listening to rumor sites, but I just don't know why Batista is in this match. It will probably end up a three on two match with Flair being involved and taking the loss.

- Cuiserweight Battle Royal
*Maybe we might actually see some brand trades during this match, with Spike Dudley coming over or something on those lines.

- A Resurrected Hardcore Time Limit Match
*It was entertaining the last time they did it. Plus they should do it in honor of Crash Holly, who basically made the Hardcore Championship meaningful with the 24/7 rule. Probably Hardcore Holly will win the honor of the mnost Hardcore of them all.

- Women's Championship Match - Trish Stratus vs. Lita vs. Victoria vs. Molly Holy
*There has to be a Women's Title Match, if only for the purposes to show how the Women's division has evolved in twenty years.

- A Legends Segment
*Once again, Hogan would probably appear. And probably the only big name who will appear. And as of right now, that is unlikely.

- Chris Jericho/Christian vs. The Dudley Boyz
*I don't know why, just because I'm thinking a Jericho/Christian breakup match would seem better on Backlash, and this will start it off.

Does anybody know what's going to happen with the Tag Team Title belts on both brands? As of right now, Flair and Batista are still tag champs, and I already penciled them in a handicap match. And Rikishi and Scotty 2 Hotty are Tag Champs on Smackdown! Something better happen soon to make it interesting again. It's pretty bland as of right now.

Oh yeah, I'm pretty sure Matt Hardy and Ultimo Dragon will be working Heat (unless Dragon is in the Cruiserweight Battle Royal). Sucks though how Hardy isn't involved in any major angle. Great athlete.

I was thinking they'd put Booker and RVD together for a feud going into 'Mania. However, they seem determined to not let that happen (no interaction, no hints, hell, they were both left off of RAW and put on HEAT for two opposite weeks). So, I'll guess that Booker v. Matt Hardy will continue into WrestleMania, and RVD will be doing nothing again.

Nuh uh. van Dam's going to be doing something semi-relevant this time around, for the simple reason that they somehow managed to change his mind on putting pen to paper for a new contract. Considering how loudly he'd been voicing his disatisfaction, I'm reckoning there were some serious conditions put forth in that new deal. Plus, here's the thing-it's a five hour show, and here are the big matches so far:

Triple Threat Match For The World Heavyweight Title
Triple H (c) Vs. Shawn Michaels Vs. Chris Benoit

WWE Title Match (As it stands right now)
Brock Lesnar (c) Vs. Goldberg

Kurt Angle Vs. Eddie Guerrero

The Undertaker Vs. Kane

The Rock'n'Sock Connection Vs. Randy Orton/Batista

US Title Match
The Big Show (c) Vs. John Cena

Chris Jericho Vs. Christian

Cruiserweight Title Battle Royale

Okay, that's eight matches. Now the three-hour PPVs will regularly feature that many contests, meaning this one's got a two-hour gap to fill. Outside of a tag title match and a women's title match, how are they going to kill time? They're not stupid-Booker and van Dam are valued comodities, no mater how badly they've treated them, and they'll be given something to do, ESPECIALLY when there's a sizeable chunk of PPV space to cover.
