*World Title Match: Chris Jericho vs. HHH (Game will get the shot back somehow)
*Rock vs. Hulk Hogan
*Steve Austin vs. Scott Hall
*Undertaker vs. Ric Flair
*Kurt Angle vs. Booker T
*Kane vs. Kevin Nash (battle of Diesels! Heh)
*IC Title Match: Regal vs. RVD (this might become a four-way involving Edge and Goldust)
*Tag Title Match: APA vs. Spike Dudley/Tazz
*Women's Title Match: Jazz vs. Trish, some kind of stipulations
*Cruiserweight title four-way: Tajiri vs. Lance Storm vs. Christian vs. Some Fourth Guy (Rey Mysterio?)
*I'll stick to my personal cool idea of having a big battle royal open to any former European or Hardcore champs. This gets all kinds of people onto the card: Test, Hardys, Boss Man, Big Show, X-Pac, Raven, Al Snow, Crash Holly, Perry Saturn, Funaki, Val Venis, Billy Gunn...if they want to get goofy, they can also get Shane McMahon, Patterson, Brisco, and maybe even Shawn Michaels involved. It also creates a fun few weeks worth of angles as Maven is targeted by a bunch of wrestlers who want to win the hardcore title in order to qualify for the battle royal. The title can become a hot potato again under the 24/7 rule.
*Battle of European/Hardcore champs: DDP vs. Mr. Perfect (who better to somehow sleaze the title away from Maven?)
*European/Hardcore unification match: Winner of battle royal vs. Winner of DDP/Mr. Perfect. The belts need to be unified before the split, and then this new title and the IC Title be the secondary titles for Smackdown and RAW, respectively.

I was born in a manger, like that other guy. You know, he wore a hat?
Personally, I'd hate to see Undertaker/Flair. Flair is still a great interview, but is sizeably past his prime as a wrestler. As much as the Internet harps on Undertaker's workrate of late, he could still damage Flair pretty badly in the ring - without even trying to damage him.
Jericho v HHH for the WWF Title - would be interesting. I could see it becoming a Three-Way with Angle - or even a Four-Way with Hogan - but I really hope that doesn't happen.
Outsiders v APA for the Tag Team Title - there's plenty of time for Hall & Nash to crush a 398-pound tag team on the road to Wrestlemania.
Austin v Hogan - may not be enough time to promote this properly; could be turned into a Three-Way with Rock.
Rock v Angle - Grievance Match after Rock helps cost Angle his WWF Title shot; perhaps a submissions match (Sharpshooter v Angle Lock).
Regal v Edge for the IC Title, Street Fight Rules - bring what you will to the ring and get rid of the overplayed "Regal's Illegal Brass Knuckles" angle.
Maven v Tazz for the Hardcore Title - teacher v student, hopefully a little more believable now after Tazz's Tag Title run and Maven's Hardcore Title run.
DDP v Christian for the European Title
Undertaker v Kane - Kane acting as Flair's "champion" to prevent us from seeing Flair in the ring.
Goldust v RVD, "Seeing Stars" Cage Match - I don't think Goldust has enough talent to pull off a ladder match, but he can certainly smash his head against a steel cage - add a little red to the gold.
Battle Royal for the Women's Title
Just some random ideas. Regardless, the WWF has professional bookers who have this all laid out - I think...

Women's title match: Jazz (c) vs. somebody to squash
I bet it will be Trish who gets the win over Jazz, because its in TO..
If they continue Edge vs Regal it will be a street fight or something. That would make sense. Hopefully they continue RVD vs Goldust.
I like the 3-way although I am not crazy about 3ways except on my N64.
The nWo vs WWF things are still random at this point..we'll see how this plays out..keep in mind that it is too soon for the nWo guys to job out if they really are supposed to be a threat..also we might get a 'who will join em' situation which imo isnt a bad thing but not a good thing either..oh well. we'll see.

I don't mind a 3-way as long as it's under elimination rules. I expect the NWO to continue to dominate and establish themselves as threat, maybe even recruit a new member. If I had to make a pick, The Undertaker would probably be the next one to join.

I still think Angle will lose the title shot before Wrestlemania, so maybe he will somehow get involved with the NWO.
But that's mainly because I hate WWF triple threat matches, and don't want to see one at Wrestlemania.
Bill Savage went over to the (Stu Hart) house and one of the Hart kids was running around with his hair wet. Savage asked why his hair was wet. Stu said, "The little bastard broke a vase this morning, so I stuck his head in the toilet. Want me to show you again?" From the Ring Around the Northwest newsletter
I'd like to see them do Hogan-Flair at WrestleMania. But, I suppose there's no way that they can give it the kind of promotion it deserves in these next four weeks. Maybe we'll just have to wait until next WrestleMania. That is, if Hogan's still with the company at that time. :-)
I don't know if I personally agree with the '3 nWo one on one matches in one night' theory.. I think that it will likely be an nWo gang vs. a WWF gang for two reasons.. first off, you _want_ to show the nWo as have solidarity where the WWF doesn't, and thats a strong way to book it.. and also, outside of Hall, who has been in Japan, these are guys with over a years worth of ring rust.. I doubt that'll be knocked off by WM, even if they work at it.
What Worked PAS: Mistico v. Memphisto was pretty fun with out being any good. Mistico is a guy who is really hot right now, in a way that doesn't feel like it is going to last. So he is working 10 shows a week to try to cash in while he can.
