WM26 could've been the best Mania of all time!

Considering the wrestlers they had at the time it really should have been the best, atleast top 3. We got a lame Tag Title opener which lasted 3 minutes, Orton was wasted in a lame storyline with Legacy, bad choice for MITB winner, HHH/Sheamus was ok but HHH couldve had a bigger match, Punk/Mysterio couldve stolen the show but only got 6 minutes, Hart/McMahon shouldve been on the card but was given way too much time, the 10 Divas Tag sucked, but the 3 main events were good to great. I think with a few tweaks to the card this Mania could've rivaled WM17.

WWE Championship
John Cena vs Batista(c)-
Keep this the same, was indeed a dream match and deserved to be there. Batista as a heel was extremely entertaining, and was a good last feud for him to go out on. (14:36)

Retirement Match
Triple H vs Shawn Michaels-
Taker/Michaels II was great but I always felt HHH shouldve been his last opponent, plus I have a dream match for Taker that wouldve been perfect for this Mania. Have both be faces thats fine, and keep his retirement the same just with HHH in Takers place. (22:40)

World Heavyweight Championship
Edge vs Randy Orton(c)-
This match shouldve happened at a WM and this wouldve been the perfect place. Instead their first PPV encounter would be at Over the Limit a few months later in a throwaway match. I'd have Orton the heel, but turn face shortly after this. Orton wins the title probably at the Rumble, with Edge returning to win the Rumble. (18:10)

Streak On The Line
Chris Jericho vs The Undertaker-
Jericho deserved to challenge the streak and this wouldve been the perfect Mania. Have Jericho cost Taker the WHC at the Rumble against Orton which would start the feud and lead to a great match at Mania 26. (17:02)

No Holds Barred
Bret Hart vs Mr.McMahon-
I dont care what anyone says this match HAD to happen, it was 13 years in the making and it wouldnt of been the same with them a managers for the Batista/Cena match. All I want is Bret to dominate with chair shots and slap on a sharpshooter for Vince to tap out and get his revenge lasting about 5-6 minutes tops. Plus no Hart lumberjack or guest referees that was just overkill. (5:53)

Hair vs Mask Match
CM Punk vs Rey Mysterio-
Keep this the same, it was a great storyline, only make this match Mask vs Hair. It wouldnt make a difference as they did it anyway, so might aswell make it on the grand stage as WM, making a WM moment. Plus make this match a little longer than 6 minutes. (11:28)

WWE Womens Championship
Mickie James vs Michelle McCool(c)-
This is another storyline that needed closure at Mania. It was a solid storyline and it wouldve been great for Mickie to overcome the odds against the bullies at Mania and win the Womens Title. Wouldve been much better than the stupid 10 Diva Tag they had and wouldve been interesting. (4:26)

WWE United States Championship
The Miz(c) vs John Morrison-
I thought they were building up to this match but instead made it a lame Tag match that lasted 3 minutes. This wouldve been a great Mania storyline and a chance to feature the US Title. Wouldnt matter who wins here though. (8:12)

WWE Money In The Bank Ladder Match
Sheamus vs Christian vs MVP vs Kofi Kingston vs Dolph Ziggler vs Kane vs The Big Show vs Shelton Benjamin-
The match itself wasnt bad, just the fact that it had 10 guys which is just too many, and that they picked a stupid winner. With these 8 guys the only guys who shouldve won were Sheamus, Christian, MVP or Kofi. This wouldve been a good matchup and those 4 wouldve made fine MITB winners instead of Swagger. (12:25)

I feel as though with that card it wouldve been way better, and considered one of if not the best of all time.

Edit: Sorry the exclamation mark in the title was a mistake
