Let's ruin WrestleMania 32!

The excitement of Shane McMahon returning to WWE for the first time in seven years is gone. Replacing that feeling is one of dread, and no it's not just because of this election cycle that's ripping this country at the seams. Unless the plan changes, and I have no reason to think it will (after all, Vince McMahon, a man that LOVES his control, has changed his WrestleMania main event two years running), Roman Reigns will come out of WrestleMania Star as your WWE world heavyweight champion. This would be fine if not for the fact that...

  • smarky crowds are not receptive to him at all,
  • not-so-smarky crowds are getting less receptive to him,
  • he's a square peg in a round hole,
  • he's the chosen one that has failed over and over and over again,
  • And he's not Daniel Bryan.
If all this sounds familiar, well, it should. I opened the Let's Save WrestleMania 32 post with these very words. But as much as those plans are quite creative, there's zero chance any of them will be used. After all, Vince's pen is law in the WWE Universe, and said pen probably has Roman Reigns finishing this year's Showcase of the Immortals as WWE Champion, closing out what will probably (but not likely) be one of the worst WrestleManias ever (maybe).

You know what? Fine.

If this show is gonna be a candidate for "worst Mania ever", we might as well go all the way with it. So in this exercise, we're going to ruin Wrestlemania 32. Only one rule: you cannot say Roman wins. Yeah, it'll probably be enough for most of you to ruin the experience, but we're the best wrestling community in the galaxy. Stretch that imagination. Book the nightmare Wrestlemania 32. Doesn't have to be the whole show, maybe one or two tweaks will ruin it for you. Whatever floats your boat.

No reasonable plan refused; even unreasonable plans will be considered!
