Re: Rebook the WrestleMania 13 main event if Shawn Michaels isn't injured

In a perfect world where Shawn was healthy and everything...

WWF Championship: HBK vs Taker (Taker wins setting up what became an awesome blood feud later in the year)
Submission Match: Austin vs Hart
European Championship: Owen vs Bulldog
WWF Tag Team Championship: Owen/Bulldog vs Furnas/Lafon
Intercontinental Championship: HHH vs Rocky Miavia
Chicago Street Fight: Ahmed/LOD vs NOD
Mankind vs Vader
Random Sid squash

I think it would be awesome to see a rematch between Owen and Davey for the Euro title, but later in the night they are still forced to defend the Tag titles. Furnas/Kroffat deserved at least one decent outing in WWF anyway. Put Vader and Mick together because fuck they're great together. HBK/Taker and Austin/Hart are both no-brainers since they were the best feuds of 1997. Sid lost at the Rumble and really shouldn't have been thrown back into the title picture so quickly. Send out Backlund to get some heat on the Shiek and then just have Sid kill him dead with a chokeslam/powerbomb in no time. I think it would have worked out better to let Rock get the title win at the big show instead of a few weeks earlier.

Also, I would have made room for an ECW appearance of some kind, similar to how they appeared on RAW and did their own thing, not really involving them in any of the WWF-specific feuds. Or maybe just Sabu squashing Flash Funk like he did months later and have Taz come out to build the Barely Legal main event even more.

I think the real point is that Vince could have done a lot of cool things with this show and he just didn't but thankfully Bret and Austin were out to change the game.

Re: Rebook the WrestleMania 13 main event if Shawn Michaels isn't injured

Most credible sources and most of the roster of that WWF at the time knew Shawn was avoiding dropping the belt to Bret. I think Shawn is an amazing wrestler, probably even better than Bret but his leg injury was a joke.

As for Wrestlemania 13, I would have Bret defeat Shawn. I would have Austin lose to Taker by DQ on the card instead. Then on the post Wrestlemania Raw I would have Bret lose the title to Sid via interference from Austin, setting up Hart vs Austin, Sid vs Taker for the next PPV.

Surely you must realize that if Bret goes over Shawn and wins the title, he'll have nothing to complain about and the fans will have no reason to hate him, essentially killing his heel turn and the anti-American stuff before it even happens? If you take Bret/Austin off the card, everything falls apart. Its kinda what makes it like, ya know, the most important match ever and stuff.

Re: Rebook the WrestleMania 13 main event if Shawn Michaels isn't injured

I know this is an old post but I like it and I'm on a WrestleMania kick. In hindsight my storylines would be different going into Mania 13.

Vader (c) vs Shawn Michaels- World Title Bout, Michaels goes over and Bret still feels screwed not getting the title match here.

Bret Hart vs Steve Austin- same

Owen Hart/British Bulldog vs Legion of Doom- Tag title

Rocky Maivia vs Sid Justice- IC title, I think Rocky needed a huge opponent here

Ahmed Johnson vs Faarooq- street fight, always thought the feud should of been settled one on one

Undertaker vs Mankind- Casket match, always thought these two should of had a big Mania match

Triple H vs Goldust- same

Battle Royal for an IC title match on Raw, wanted to get everybody on the card and add something to Raw.

Tiger Jeet Ali vs The Patriot- Pre show match

Re: Rebook the WrestleMania 13 main event if Shawn Michaels isn't injured

The problem with a lot of these facts are all of them could be true, but also not up to date.

The plan as of Wrestlemania 12 was to do it again at Wrestlemania 13. Hart was taking time off, he comes back and gets his win back. At this point Austin getting over and being in the title picture isn't even thought of.

Bret comes back and wants to work with Austin and it gets over. Sid basically gets the random title win from Shawn that Shawn denied Vader of. Come January Austin is so hot they have him "win" the rumble.

The fact of the matter is Austin isn't dropping too low on the card now.

I've also heard Vince was now looking at Taker vs Sid, while Bret vs Shawn is getting moved away from the title. Some people say Bret vs Shawn was going to be a hair vs. hair match. Obviously we know now that Sid vs Taker ended up happening.
.................................

So Shawn's not injured, but I still think it would've been hell booking him and Bret. I think they would've just said the hell with it. I also think Austin's too hot to drop now. I see Shawn still going over Sid at Final Four.

Now what I don't see is Bret winning the Final Four. They wasn't going to do the same match they just did last year with time still as faces. Bret was clearly headed towards a turn anyway. So I don't think he would've pinned Shawn. No point in doing that rematch now. I think through some fuckery Steve screws Bret one last time. Steve wins the Final Four. Bret turns on Raw. Since Steve and Bret are both heels now that kind of cans their match. Bret still needs something to justify his heel turn though, seeing as him and Undertaker were both at the end of the Rumble and in the Final Four. I think they can figure at Bret vs Taker match out. I also think this is the match Ken referees. Sid still can't drop too low. But I've just knocked him out the top two matches. So the next big match has to go to him.

At this point though anyone credible is heel: Bulldog & Owen, Mankind and Vader. Vader had the highest booking at that point so I think you turn Sid face for Vader.

That frees up Mankind and Bulldog and Owen. Owen and Bulldog were semi feuding anyway. So I'd just have them do the match as tag champs but fighting for the Eurobelt.

Mankind's free now and I think he takes Rocky's IC belt.

I scrap the tag team fatal fourway completely. Headbangers were only getting time on Shotgun anyway, and had just debuted. You could build them up later.

Goldust vs Hunter still stands as does the 6 man tag street fight.
--------------------

Shawn Michaels defeats Steve Austin for the WWE Championship. (Bret interferes to turn Steve with no fault on Shawn. Steve and Bret go back to feuding).

Undertaker defeats Bret Hart.

Sid defeats Vader.

Mankind beats Rocky Maivia for the IC title.

Bulldog defeats Owen Hart.

Hunter defeats Goldust.

Ahmed (sigh) and LOD defeat the Nation.


I tried to do this without "knowing the future".

Re: Rebook the WrestleMania 13 main event if Shawn Michaels isn't injured

Was Ken Shamrock under a wrestling contract yet or just a special appearance deal? If he would wrestle then I wouldve done:

Taker vs Sid

Shawn vs Bret

Austin vs Shamrock This way, Austin is still put in a major marquee match.

Or you could do:
Shawn/Taker, Austin/Bret and Sid/Shamrock.

R.I.P. Warrior.

Re: Rebook the WrestleMania 13 main event if Shawn Michaels isn't injured

I think we would of got the final four main event at Wrestlemania Vader vs taker vs Austin vs Hart. With Hart winning, setting up the main event Hart vs Hbk with Hbk retaining.

The main event for the February ppv would of been a six men tag, Hbk,Hart and Undertaker vs Vader,Austin and Sid.

Was the Shawn/Bret rematch a definite for King of the Ring '97 before Bret's injury then? Just a random thought cos I honestly can't remember.

No, am pretty sure King of the Ring main event always meant to be Austin vs. HBK.
