Re: Champion V Champion
Just pre this PG era or just going with the short TV 14 era? I can choose a few from the Golden Age in some of those slots very easily..
Hogan v Punk - really, Punk would very much play the Piper role here. Depending on the build up to the match, I could see it going either way. Though much like with Cena, the WWE would most likely book Hogan going over.
World Heavyweight Championship
Sting v Sheamus. I think Sting could drag a great match out of Sheamus much like Bryan did. I'd personally book Sting over Sheamus, but then I really haven't bought Sheamus as the monster champ the WWE is trying to portray.
Tough choice with Miz... I think most that would match up in a good storyline are all heels, but then the best IC champs outside of Hart have all been heel.
Perfect v Miz
Rude v Miz
HBK v Miz... any of these three match ups would interesting and all three are proven capable to get a great match out of anyone. Not saying Miz is terrible, but he isn't quite on that technical level the IC title once portrayed. I'd personally book Miz to win pretty much all of them in a real booking scenario just because he would need the rub. He has the ability to be more and any of these three in a feud could really propel him.
Lance Storm v Cesaro - I just really liked that domination Lance Storm and Team Canada had in WCW. Course, he renamed the title during it but still, he is the first name I think of with that title. Course, this is purely from a technical standpoint since the gimmicks of the two are somewhat similar in nature.
Tag Team Titls
Edge and Christian v Truth/Kofi... this is so disappointing. You have a classic tag team versus two guys slapped together. Can't really say much other than I think this would be the most entertaining feud. I wouldn't mind a Hart Foundation being inserted though either.
Can I just have Lita v Trish again? I think some of the women have the ability, but it would just not be believable for Trish or Lita to face any of them right now and lose... this division is such a joke right now.
Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace
