i think that the lesnar/goldberg match be the main event because out of all of the matches, those to go the most back (survivor series) or kane/undertaker for the same reason

HUH?

Guerrero/Angle has been brewing off and on since the brand extension. Benoit's ascension has been built up since he entered the WWF(E) in 2000. Triple H's dominance has been built up since 1999. It's natural that both should come to a head at the biggest show of the year.

Meanwhile, Brock & Goldberg just got thrown together and Taker/Kane has been done sixteen dozen times.

Not only do the ME Title matches have better build and more history behind them, but in the past matches like Goldberg/Lesnar and Taker/Kane have come at lower spots on the card to keep the fans going for the Title matches at the end. Depending on how the endings are planned out, I'd say WWE will do one of the Title matches as the true ME, with Goldberg/Lesnar right before it, and the 2nd Title match before that. Taker/Kane can get thrown in a few matches lower to get the crowd all riled up for the last few big matches. Same thing with Cena's US Title win, which should be placed maybe as the 5th from last match. Cena will get the crowd crazy.

The Triple Threat match should get the slot, but only if HHH or HBK isn't winning. :)

The Main has to have a babyface going over. Thus if the last match is the Triple Threat, Benoit or HBK will win. If the Triple Threat isn't last, you know Triple H is winning (as big a shock as that would be). If that's the case, Eddie/Kurt needs to close the show with Eddie retaining. I can't imagine they would have heels win BOTH title matches.

I would have to go with Angle/Guerrero, not only because it's going to be a stellar match and it has had and incredible build-up, it is for the WWE Championship ... the same championship that Hogan, Savage, Bret Hart, Austin & the Rock battled for and main evented over it on past Wrestlemanias.

There is always the arguement that Vince and the rest of WWE think of RAW as their "flagship show," despite not being the show with the original WWF Championship on it. Hard to tell which of these they deem more important in regards to who will get the ME slot.

The triple threat should go on last. It's a title match, and it's had a good month more direct build than the Smackdown title match. Also, I think there's a lot more interest in HHH/Benoit/Michaels among the masses than there is in Guerrero/Angle. Finally, WM needs to blow off with a face WINNING the title...a face retaining the title seems somehow anticlimatic (and I know Hogan used to do that, but times were different then).

I really don't see how this is a debatable argument. It doesn't matter who wins or loses. The main event should be Eddie/Angle because it is for the WWE Championship. How many times has the WWE gone against the grain? Again, it doesn't really matter if Super Heel-Man 3000 wins the match hands-down...the WWE Title match should always be the main event. In my opinion, it's because of how the WWE title has been put down/downplayed over the years that is one of the reasons wrestling kind of sucks right now.

Last night when JR was interviewing Benoit, he called the triple threat match the main event at Wrestlemania.

And in even more evidence, according to Shawn Michaels at wwe.com(http://www.wwe.com/news/headlines/1257015):

"And now this year, the 20th anniversary, to be in the Garden, to be in the main event for the World Heavyweight Championship..."

So there we have it, supposedly. Unfortunately.

WrestleMania Main Events NOT involving the Title:

-Hulk Hogan & Mr. T [w/Jimmy Snuka] vs. Roddy Piper & Paul Orndorff [w/Bob Orton] [Billy Martin was ring announcer, Liberace was timekeeper & Muhammad Ali was referee] WRESTLEMANIA I
-Hulk Hogan vs. Sid Justice [w/Harvey Whippleman] WRESTLEMANIA VIII
-Lawrence Taylor [w/Ken Norton Jr, Chris Spielman, Ricky Jackson, Carl Banks, Steve McMichael & Reggie White] vs. Bam Bam Bigelow [w/King Kong Bundy, Tatanka, Irwin R. Shyster, Nikolai Volkoff, Kama & Ted DiBiase] WRESTLEMANIA XI

Hogan/T vs. Piper/Orndorff HAD the WWF Champion in it, but the focus was much more on the Rock & Wrestling connection and the inclusion of frickin' ALI. It didn't really NEED the title up for grabs. VIII was part of a billed Double Main Event and had the wacky botched finish, but really ended the Sid/Hogan feud that brewed out of the Royal Rumble finish that year. Hogan was still the #1 face and a big draw, so he got the main event spot. LT vs. Bam Bam was a collosal mistake on a sub-par Mania.

Since WrestleMania XIII (and excluding the wacky 1997 Rumble finish), every Royal Rumble winner HAS gotten the final match at WrestleMania. And before you folks whine about Vince McMahon's 1999 Rumble win, he lost his title shot at the St. Valentine's Day Massacre to Steve Austin, so it still counts.

To quote Michael Cole from a couple of weeks ago "For the second consecutive year, Kurt Angle is headlining the Wrestlemania main event". It seems both brands are promoting their title as the main event for Wrestlemania... I'll sure keep my ears open to hear of Cole or Tazz throws out the word main event while talking about the WWE title participants.

I did this topic a month ago when the two matches were officially announced and now more then ever I think Eddie-Angle should be in the main event. The guys in the World title match on Raw can't even main event or be the last thing on their own TV show (Feb. 16 last time, making it once in the last 5 weeks) and they are going to be the main event of wrestlemania?... Eddie could very well be the most over guy in the arena that night behind The Undertaker. I don't think HBK or Benoit on their own can match Eddie right now let alone the possible split crowd for them. Plus I'm thinking HHH is winning Wrestlemania anyways, you have to finish with a babyface win.

Watch them throw a total curve and put Undertaker Vs. Kane last OR goldberg/lesner WITH SPECIAL GUEST REFEREE STONE COLD BUH GAWD STONE COLD STEVE AUSTIN!!!



smark/net attack wienerville advisory is lowered to BLUE alert - Guarded (Due to Eddie being WWE champ and facing Angle at WM, Benoit winning the Rumble in World title match in mania BUT Kliq members is still a threat - Vince you can save us from these threats) 2/17

This should be used in some way with Fandango. They sunk a lot into that gimmick for it just to be used to get Summer Rae over.
