My WrestleMania card: Fantasy booking is fun

What is your ideal show this year?

It is officially the most wonderful time of the year: WrestleMania season.

And in the next two to three weeks, WWE will paint the picture of what they are planning for this year’s big show.

Before that happens and all of our WrestleMania dreams get crushed, I like to play fantasy booker. In fact, both Zach and I did on this week’s edition of the Fourth Wall Wrestling podcast.

Let’s be honest. You won’t agree with my card (which is why I’d like to see yours in the comments below), and that’s why this is fun.

Going by last year’s format, I chose to have three pre-show matches followed by 12 main card matches. I also tried to stay realistic (I mentioned on our podcast I refrained from adding Papa Shango vs. Kenny Omega to the card).

Anyway, here’s what I came up with:

The Preshow

Fatal-4 way (winner to advance to main card’s Raw women’s title triple-threat match)

Sasha Banks vs. Bayley vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Paige

Cruiserweight championship

Enzo Amore (c) vs. Neville

Grudge match

Seth Rollins vs. Jason Jordan

The main card

SmackDown Live tag-team championship

The Usos (c) vs. Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn

Raw tag-team titles triple-threat match

The Bar (c) vs. the Revival vs. Mystery team (revealed as the Authors of Pain)

United States championship

Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Rusev w/ Aiden English

Intercontinental championship

The Miz (c) vs. Elias

Tag-team grudge match

Matt Hardy and Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt and “Brother Nero”

Match for full control of SmackDown Live

Shane McMahon vs. Daniel Bryan

Grudge match

Triple H vs. Braun Stroman

Casket match

The Undertaker (motorcycle gimmick) vs. John Cena

Smackdown Live women’s championship

Charlotte Flair (c) vs. Becky Lynch (Royal Rumble winner)

Raw women’s championship triple-threat match

Asuka (c) vs. Ronda Rousey vs. Pre-show winner

WWE Championship

AJ Styles (c) vs. Big E w/ a recently-turned-heel New Day

Universal Championship triple-threat match

Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns vs. Finn Balor (Royal Rumble winner)

I explain why I went the way I went on the podcast, which you can play below or click here. We also discuss Samoa Joe and Wrestle Kingdom.
