I guess this could be a two parter. What would you book as the main event and who do you think actually will be the main event at Wrestlemania

If I was placing the matches, I'd go with Eddie vs. Angle as the main event. Eddie Guerrero can be argued to be the hottest commodity in wrestling especially on the babyface side. These guys are going to have an amazing match which I will feel bad for whoever has to follow them. I see Eddie winning the match so if WWE wants to end the show on the high note they should put the SD WWE Championship match last.

Don't think the Raw World title match can measure up. First off it's a 3-way match which takes away the some luster already. HHH and HBK have feuded on PPV at the last PPV Raw was involved (Royal Rumble) and even Benoit isn't as hot a babyface as Eddie Guerrero is.

I personally think it will be the RAW World title match. Triple H didn't have the final slot last year and I don't think he'll give it up this year.

If they're going with history and lineage, the WWE Title match HAS to be last.

1992?

The precedent seems to have been set: the Rumble winner gets the last match.

Okay, point taken. But, do you think Vince McMahon will allow the (former) WCW World Championship to be in the main event of WrestleMania XX?

Personally, I say sure. Why not? Maybe Vince thinks differently. He spent the past two years and change trying to disassociate WCW from the Big Gold Belt. And onscreen, Triple H is allowed to promote himself as the only *true* World Champ.

I'm just going with what happened at X8 and XIX.

I have to lean towards HBK/HHH/Benoit as the final main event slot. It's for a major championship, the Royal Rumble winner is in it, if the babyface (Benoit) goes over here it has to be last, and Smackdown had the slot last year.

I'm confused - you point to 1992 but in 1992, the Rumble winner did NOT get the last match.

Also, neither the annoted yet disputed winner of the Royal Rumble in 1997 NOR the person who won the ensuing run-off match the next month were in the last match at Mania. Also, the winner of the 1999 Rumble wasn't in a match at all (OK, you can split hairs and say "did a run-in", but that's hardly the same thing).

So if by preccedent you mean "all those years it happened except for the years that it didn't" that would be correct.

If Benoit is going over, I'd probably strongly consider putting that as the main event. Plus they've been hyping that the Royal Rumble winner gets the main event for a couple of months now.

Otherwise (and maybe even in that case) I think I'd go with Taker/Kane. People are anticipating the very appearance of one of the wrestlers, let alone the match itself. It might not be a top notch athletic contest, but people are going to be popping none-the-less. I think people will be hot for this match regardless of any amount of shit (or solid gold) that might come directly before it.

Well, allow me to be more specific.

I'm referring to the "precedent" set at X8 and XIX, when common sense said to put Hogan on last (from a crowd heat point of view), but instead the Rumble winner went on last.

I'd love to see Taker come out last because you are ight, the roof would just blow off of MSG. But then where do you put Goldberg/Lesnar, Eddie/Kurt and the Triple Threat? I would almost open with Taker just to get the crowd in a complete frenzy and follow it with a lesser match (Tag Team) so that some of the excitement carries over. Also, this way, Taker does not take away from the bigger matches like Rock/Hogan took away from HHH/Jericho.

The show should either begin with Cena going over Big Show, or the Booker T/RVD tag match.

It'll be difficult to organize the top four matches (both world titles, Lesnar/Goldberg, Taker/Kane). I'd say they should go for Guerrero/Angle as the main event by far. Why? More people want to see Kurt Angle and Eddie Guerrero in the Wrestlemania main event. HBK vs HHH is tired and old, and seeing Benoit against either of those men hasn't interested me. Besides, it's a triple threat match. Those suck. Don't put this last. Guerrero is over, Angle is over, and a one-on-one technical masterpiece to end the show is what WMXX needs.

More people want to see Guerrero and Angle? If you mean, "Most of the Weinerboard wants it" then you might be correct. Brock v. Angle was almost anticlimactic after the previous bouts at WM XIX, and I think that the same thing will happen if Angle/Eddie is on last. I would put the triple threat match on last because I think it is the hotter match with the marks, and because Raw the next night would be just that much hotter if the main angle from it was the ME of WM XX.

The Triple Threat has to be last. I don't think that the MSG crowd is looking forward to Eddy/Angle match like they are the triple threat. I mean, HHH/HBK/Benoit is star power. Eddy was treated like a mid carder up until recently.

I think you go Eddy/Angle, Goldberg/Lesnar, then end it with HHH/HBK/Benoit. Only because I think that you can't have the title matches back to back. The crowd can't sustain that kind of energy. Either way, booking the order is going to be hard. You still have UT/Kane to put in there and whatever comes after that will be a serious let down.

The show has to end with a "feel good" moment or it isn't a Wrestlemania 20 years in the making.

So, if Benoit does not win the Championship, then the Triple Threat match is not the main event.

If Kurt angle defeats Eddie for the Championship, then it will not be the main event.

If Brock Lesnar goes over Goldberg (which is 99% positive) then it will not be the main event.

If Kane goes over the Undertaker in his dead man return, then it will not be the main event.

So there you are. Likely, Taker will go over Kane and Brock will go over Goldberg. The other two are pretty up in the air. If HBK wins, which is doubtful, it could be the main event. A title defence by Eddie in the main event is different, and I wouldn't be too big on it. He already made it over the big hill he needed to.

So that leaves you with if Benoit wins the belt, or Taker beating Kane, for the Wrestlemania 20 main event.

I think Taker will be the finale of Mania

Benoit will win the title at Backlash

HHH will retain because we've already seen HBK-Benoit and if they want to keep HBK a face, there's no way they'll make him fight Benoit in Edmonton...they'll boo him back to Jesus.

Angle and Eddie is not a strong enough match to be the finale and although Brock-Goldberg does look like it's strong enough, everyone knows Goldberg isnt winning

I would say it will be booked:

Heat. Matt Hardy vs. The Hurricane?
1. Cruiserweight Battle Royal
2. Rob Van Dam and Booker T vs. The Dudley Boyz vs. Test and Scott Steiner vs. Lance Storm and Val Venis
3. The Big Show vs. John Cena
4. Chris Jericho vs. Christian
5. Scotty 2 Hotty & Rikishi vs. APA vs. WGTT
6. Sable and Torrie vs. Stacy and Jackie
7. Chris Jericho vs. Christian
8. The Rock and Mick Foley vs. Evolution
9. Brock Lesnar vs. Goldberg
10. Lita vs. Victoria vs. Molly Holly
11. Kurt Angle vs. Eddie Guerrero
12. The Undertaker vs. Kane
13. Triple H vs. Chris Benoit vs. Shawn Michaels

Matt Hardy can't miss out, but I don't see a spot on the card for him.

I'd vote for the triple-threat at this point, they've kinda backed themselves into a corner with it. But if the heel wins, the reaction ain't gonna be pretty.

What a loaded show. I'm suddenly very excited. Last match has to be for one of the two titles so no Taker. I would put Taker right around where Hogan/Vince was last year or Vince/Shane from x-7. Towards the middle, and the first of the big matches.

I would go with the triple threat match last, just because the babyface already has the title on Smackdown.

My real question is what to do with the Rock. I don't think he is going to be involved with Foley/Orton. That whole thing is building to a one on one match. As much as I would love to see Rock n Sock, he would just take away from what is already there. And Rock said he is only coming back for that one night, at Mania. So does he do an open challenge (Hogan answers maybe)? Does he get into it with Austin just for old times sake? Does he just show up and talk, or ref, or enforce, or just check in, check out, and go back to the movies before the main event? I really hope he is there, but it is almost too late to do anything meaningful with him at this point. That is probably better for both sides anyway. Rock keeps his focus on acting, and the WWE keeps moving ahead with newer guys.



Go Bucks.
