Final Card for WWE Wrestle Mania XXIII:
Date: 18th March 2007
Location: Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana
Event Music: U2 & Green Day; The Saints are Coming & Killers; Sams Town
World Heavyweight Championship Match:
World Heavyweight Champion, John Cena vs.
2007 Royal Rumble Winner, Christian
Cena's only just won the strap admittedly, but he can afford the short reign tbh. If Christian's momentum at the top is wasted on the big stage, it could kill his credibility in the thread. Plus, with Cena's slow, gradual heel turn all but guaranteed, what better way to push it along tan by him losing not only the title but also his spot as the #1 babyface to Captain Charisma? Oh, and Christian|Hunter is happening for the title at SummerSlam at the very latest
WWE Championship; Triple Threat Match:
WWE Champion, Rob Van Dam vs.
Mr. Money in the Bank, Edge vs.
‘Highlight of the Night’ Chris Jericho
To HELL with the MITB contract imo. I can tell that's it's been a kind of annoyance rather than an enjoyment to you over the year, and I don't think you actually want to put the strap on Edge. Face it, after Jericho and Angle, he's only the third best heel on the show. I think you're going to make up for your mistake at SummerSlam by giving the belt to the King Of The World. Please?
WWE Tag Team Championships Match;
Americas Most Wanted
vs. The Hardy Boys
I'd love it. Hate The Hardys as a team. Much prefer Matt when he's solo and Jeff when he's umemployed, so I'm going for a surprise AMW victory here as they steal one, and win at WM for the first time ever. Obviously Matt & Jeff will get the title at some point, but seeing as you've killed the rest of the tag division with these two teams, it needs to last a little bit longer.
One Fall; Triple Jeopardy Match:
Intercontinental, World Tag Team & Womens Championships all on the line:
Rey Mysterio, CM Punk. Gregory Helms & Alexis Laree
vs. Mr. Kennedy, Mercury, Nitro & Melina
It really is a damn shame that Kennedy (change your usertitle right now) is reduced to this at the biggest show of the year after such a promising start last year. There's just no way I can see MNM retaining their belts, so I'd imagine we'll be sseing Punk putting Nitro or Mercury to sleep for the big face win. Hopefully KK bounces back strong after WM, but I'm not going to hold my breath. No one seems to like him anymore
Cruiserweight Championship Match:
vs. Brian Kendrick
No idea really. It hasn't been built as WM worthy. The CW title has been ignored largely since London moved on, so I'll go with Kash since he only won it a couple of months ago and jobbed on SD.
United States Championship Match:
Brent Albright vs. Batista
You've been pretty cryptic with this one, but I guess Albright has had a long run. I just don't know whether Batista will be the one taking the title from him.
Money in the Bank Ladder Match:
WINNER HAS AUTOMATIC TITLE SHOT ANYTIME IN NEXT 12 MONTHS
M.V.P vs. Umaga vs. Paul London
vs. Finlay vs. Carlito vs. Randy Orton vs. Charlie Haas vs. Shelton Benjamin
Like Pat, I'm sticking my neck out with this one. Finlay, Carlito, Haas and Benji have been jobbing left, right and centre, so they don't stand a chance. It's down to MVP, Umaga, London and Orton imo. You obviously like them all. With Orton? Like you said, he doesn't need MITB to become a World Champion and he's too much of a favourite. MVP'S too much of a rookie I think, and Umaga's almost in the same situation as Orton. He's looking so good right now he doesn't even need the briefcase. London's my pick. He could lose the contract down the line for all I know, but this is a guy who you've invested an awful lot in. Wins over Trips, Angle and Batista, and this match just seems so suited to him. Do it.
FIRST TIME EVER:
!!FIVE YEARS IN THE MAKING!!
Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar
With The McMahon Family Empire in the corner of Triple H, and ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin as special guest enforcer.
The odds are all stacked against Brock, so he's winning. These two, Christian and Cena will dominate the WHC scene over the next few months I imagine.
The Irresistible Force vs. The Immovable Object:
Kurt Angle vs. The Undertaker
Up until the last few weeks Angle has OWNED 'Taker in the worst way, the usual setup, so Kurt ain't winning.
Non Sanctioned Match:
vs. Shawn Michaels
I absolutely ADORE his current persona, and if he went over HBK it's not like he would be spoiling a young star, so I think it'll happen. I just don't want this Foley business to end at WM.
