Wrestlemania usually has 10-12 matches and some ppl miss out each year. Last year RVD, Kane and The Dudleyz which guarantees them a place this year. With the match rumours going around the card so far is:

Brock Lesnar vs. Bill Goldberg

WWE Championship
Eddie Guerrero (c) vs. Kurt Angle

World Championship
Triple H (c) vs. Chris Benoit

The Undertaker vs. Kane

Playboy Shoot Grudge Match Bra and Panties
Torrie Wilson and Sable vs. Stacy Keibler and Miss Jackie

Chris Jericho vs. Christian

The Rock and Mick Foley vs. Randy Orton and Batista

Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat

Cruiseweight Battle Royal Pin Fall Only
Rey Mysterio, Shannon Moore, Tajiri, Jamie Noble, The Hurricane, Spike Dudley, Dean Malenko, Funaki



Who'll miss out with only 2-3 matches left to be booked and the possibility of Womens Title and Legends Battle Royal still to be announced.

How about (to save room):

IC Championship and World Tag Titles on the Line:
Rob Van Dam, The Rock and Mick Foley vs. Randy Orton, Ric Flair and Batista ???

Also: Have Guest Refs ect. to use more ppl on the card
Plus Austin in a match with Hogan is possibility so to save more room WWE Tag Titles Fatal 4 Way not 1 on 1: Bashams/APA/FBI/Scotty&Rikishi



...and that's the bottom line cos jk sed so

Why does missing Wrestlemania last year guarantee them a place this year? Lance Storm, for instance, was left off both the Wrestlemania 18 and 19 cards. (And as things are shaping up so far, unfortunately, Storm doesn't have any sort of resemblance of a storyline that could be leading up to a Wrestlemania match at the moment.)

Also, keep in mind that Wrestlemania 20 is going to be an hour longer than past Wrestlemanias, clocking in at a whopping 5 hours. Hopefully they plan to use at least half of that time for actual matches.

One idea I'd like to see is to have a 6 man tag for each show that uses guys who deserve a spot but don't have a solid angle, where the winning team for each brand goes on to face off later on in the card. That gives a dozen more guys Wrestlemania matches right there. If they're really pressed for time, they could still fit all of that into 20 minutes. I'm sure most guys would rather have a quick match than no match at all.

I'm sure the main event will have crickets chirping in the background, because everyone will be burned out after 4+ hours (if that is the case).

Austin/Hogan and Flair/Steamboat are not gonna happen.

Here goes!


Brock/Goldberg
UT/Kane
Rock-Foley/Orton-Batista
Benoit/HHH
Angle/Eddie
Michaels/Flair
Jericho/Christian
Cena/Show
Cruiserweights (no Malenko)
3 or 4 womens in a match
Nothing for Booker or RVD so ... Booker vs. RVD!


Not important enough: Dudleys, WGTT, Bashams, A-Train, Mark Henry, anybody lower

I actually agree with this card fully. I wish there was a better opponent for Cena, but I guess there isn't, so we'll go with Show.

I'm sure Flair/Steamboat won't happen (thank God), but I could still see Vince trying to put together Austin/Hogan. Don't know. Just a gut feeling, I guess.

Maybe it's just me, but it's looking like Vince is going toward a Vince v. Bischoff v. Heyman "Battle of the Big Three Promoters" match at 'Mania. Hopefully, this isn't the case. But I can see Vince sitting back in Stamford thinking of it as being genious.

How sad is it when you have NOTHING to do with two of your more popular wrestlers (RVD/Booker T), so you just have to throw them together in a desperate attempt to squeeze them on the card? Of course, I'd rather have that than WWE leaving them off the card completely (which I can see happening).

I wouldn't be surprised to see a filler battle royal tacked on at the end to give 20 or so deserving guys a spot on the show. They did that at WM 4, and wouldn't be a bad idea. It may be less likely with a CW battle royal already on the show, but it would be a good fit if the cruisers are going with pinfall eliminations. It could also be a good way of hyping the importance of the show by having a handful of big name guys in the match, with their angle being that winning the interpromotional battle royal at WrestleMania will be something people remember you for.

"Who am I missing?"

I'd say you're not missing enough.

"7. Rock vs. John Cena"

I'm kind of sad this won't be happening, as then each side would have the Legend vs. the Future in a starmaking program. But Rock had so much fun working with Foley, so he wants to tag with him. I'm sure it'll make for some more great promos and the match with be lots of fun, if Batista doesn't ruin it.

"I wish there was a better opponent for Cena, but I guess there isn't, so we'll go with Show."

Yup. It won't be good, but Show was like the third most pushed guy on SD this year, and he's been kept especially strong with the Rumble. So he'll FU him and get a big pop and slay a giant.

"I could still see Vince trying to put together Austin/Hogan."

Funny thing is, if Hogan pulls a Hogan and Vince pulls a Vince and he wants to come back for WM, is there really anyone for him to beat besides, well, Flair? Unless he wants to take the DERAILER~!, Hulk up, big boot, legdrop.

"I can see Vince sitting back in Stamford thinking of it as being genious."

Vince being undefeated all year and Austin needing something to do, I'd set aside 10 minutes for "quite frankly" -> What? -> Stunners -> beer. (Not a match though.)

"How sad is it when you have NOTHING to do with two of your more popular wrestlers (RVD/Booker T), so you just have to throw them together in a desperate attempt to squeeze them on the card?"

Or make them wacky tag team champions. Wait a minute ... I can totally see that.

"their angle being that winning the interpromotional battle royal at WrestleMania will be something people remember you for."

I approve! It can be a launching point for SEAN O'HAIRE~~~~~~~~~~ ........... getting fired before the show so people will stop saying he should be pushed. (Matt Hardy can win.)

Personally, I would like to see HBK beat HHH for the title to set up Michaels/Benoit, and then have Foley and Rock vs. Orton and HHH. But that's just me.

I'd say it all depends on how long WMXX will be ... If they could get 5 hours, that would be sweet ... but that'll cost Vince some major bling bling ...

I think RVD actually has a good chance to be on the show, mainly because the IC belt has no place in the Mic Foley vs. Randy Orton feud. So, I would imagine RVD or a heel might pick it up, in a match with Orton where Foley interferes and cost him the belt. If that Happens I think RVD has a very good chance to make the show in an IC title match.

The person who I think is really gonna get screwed is Booker T. The only semblence of a feud he has right now is with Kane, and we know what he will be doing at wrestlemania. Part of me thinks he might end up in a "Hater" match with Mark Henry, but I wouldn't count on it. Considering the fact the he was wrestling (in a very good match, IMO) for the World Heavyweight Title last year at Wrestlemania, for him to be left off the show this year just might be the death knell in Booker illustrious career.

Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat is still a possibility.

Steamboat is on 'The Legends of Wrestlemania Tour' put together by Vince. Also a side note - Cena could miss out on Mania as he is expected to be out for 3 months!?

And whoever said Vince will want to keep from having to pay as many ppl as possible remember every superstar even those who had nothing to do with Mania got a pay-off for the event

If this is true, it's still not nearly the payoff the wrestlers who were actually on the card received.

Apparantly Cena can only work short matches with NO bumps so a Mania match could be off the cards while he heals. It doesn't mean he won't be on the show tho. Remember last year when they tried to get Jay-Z and Fabulous for a battle rap but it didn't work out.

Also: Celebritys? Who's off to Mania this year?

Orton loses title to RVD after Foley interference sometimes in the next three weeks.... then at Wrestlemania XX you get:

4 way for IC title:

RVD vs. Booker T vs. Mark Henry vs. Matt Hardy

Tell Vince I expect a check in the mail for this one.

That would just be bad in my opinion
Take out Mark Henry and put in some one deserving such as Lance Storm or Val Venis at least.
