Fans in 2003 discuss potential WrestleMania 30 performers

In the summer of 2003 (post-WrestleMania 19), fans took to the Internet to look ahead a full decade to wonder about the future of WWE around the time of WrestleMania 30. You might think "hilarity ensues" but while there are some "lolno" moments -- Matt Hardy as a main eventer, chief among them -- some of it is fairly prescient.

Highlights:

LESNAR OR ANGLE

There will always be a market for pro wrestling in the States, and Vince and Co. are the only people established enough now to be big in 10 years. They may have to hold it in Key Arena instead of Safeco Field, but I see no reason why WWE won't still be going in 10 years.

As far as the participants...Lesnar maybe, Angle no chance. I'll be surprised if he makes it to 25.

NETWORK FORESHADOW

PPV will be non-existant by 2014 because of the amazing Internet Broadband capabilites.

MANY YEARS BEFORE MANIA 26, WHILE BRET WAS STILL ESTRANGED FROM WWE

Bret Hart vs. Vince McMahon

"20 Years In The Making"/ "15 Years To Late"

EDGE WAS YEARS AWAY FROM BREAKING INTO THE MAIN EVENT WHILE CHRSITIAN...IS ACTUALLY IN THE E.C. MATCH LATER THIS MONTH.

....I see Edge still being around by then....i dont know about Christian

WOW.

I'm going to promise you guys something:

Barring any career-ending injuries, John Cena is going to be the new Rocky by WM 25. That guy has so much undiscovered ability and they haven't pushed him down our throats ala Lesnar who climbed to the top of the mountain before he actually got over (as a babyface, even.)

Linda, Hunter, and JR can go on about Randy Orton all the fuck they want. I guarantee Cena will be massive in a few years.

HEH

I really believe HHH will still be headlining. His idol is 53 and still going. He is only 34 and at 44 would still have 9 years to go before even reaching Flairs current age. I just hope he has dropped the title once or twice in this time period.
