The thing is that HHH Vs. Jericho was the right match to do. Jericho was the one that HHH was fighting when he got hurt and in HHH's absence, he became Undisputed Champion. The problem was that they booked the storyline so horribly and by the time the match rolled around, nobody cared. The reaction to Hogan/Rock didn't help, and I would still argue that match should have closed, but the reaction that match got was out of WWF's control. Lets talk about the things that were firmly within their control.

- Why were Jericho & Stephanie just "business partners"? In a business that writes it stories based on extremes, in any other instance, they would have been fucking like jackrabbits. I mean come on! He took Triple H out, took his spot, and then fucked his wife! That's your story right there! But no, they hindered that by half assing it.

- So what was the relationship? Well apparently it was Jericho being a man slave as he basically did everything Stephanie told him to do, including cleaning up dog poop. Why is the Undisputed World Champion cleaning up dog poop as part of the build up for the biggest show of the year? And why is a dog one of the focal points of the drama anyway?

- By the time the build up the finished, the feud was HHH Vs. Stephanie, and Jericho's role was just a placeholder that anybody else could have filled. The World Champion was relegated to second banana and it didn't help that HHH's victory was painfully obvious. See that's something I'll never understand. You want HHH's journey back to the top to seem like a big deal, right? So why make his opposition look like shit? Doesn't it make the accomplishment greater if the heel has a lot of heat built into him? You think anybody would have given a shit that Warrior beat Hogan at VI if Hogan hadn't been built up as much as he was? You think anybody would have been as excited about Punk & Bryan beating Cena if Cena wasn't viewed as unbeatable most of the time? You think Hogan beating Andre at III would have been worth a damn if Andre wasn't viewed as an unstoppable giant who had never been beaten in 15 years (which wasn't true, but they were still able to sell it).

If they had made Jericho look credible as champion and gave HHH real incentive to take vengeance on him, the match probably would have been more satisfying.

Default Re: How would you have booked WrestleMania 18?

My triple main event would have been:

Kevin Nash & Scott Hall vs The Brothers of Destruction
I'd tease the crowds with this one by having Scott Hall blast Undertaker with a stun-gun, like he did to Goldberg to end his streak. 'Taker would pass out and Hall would go for a cover, only for Undertaker to kick out at the last possible second and chokeslam that son of a bitch straight to Hell! This could've been a great addition to the Streak as it involves a few other components, rather than simply being a one on one match for 'Taker to stroll through.

'Stone Cold' Steve Austin vs Hulk Hogan
I know that there was some drama and dispute between Austin and Hogan but, regardless, I'd book this match with Austin winning. If Hogan didn't have a problem laying down for the Rock, he shouldn't have had a problem with laying down for Austin.

WWF Championship
The Rock (WWF Champion) vs Triple H
These two deserved to have a one on one showdown at Wrestlemania; they're so different in styles and character yet had such great chemistry during their feud in 2000.

With an undercard of:

Kurt Angle vs Mr. Perfect
Edge vs Christian
Rob Van Dam vs Chris Jericho
Hardy Boys vs Dudley Boys vs APA (TLC III)
Chris Benoit vs William Regal

I realise where they're going and that WWE will push Roman Reigns straight to the top. However for me, Dean Ambrose is by far the most talented in that group and I think eventually if they just give him the spotlight then he's going to shine. As soon as he touches a mic everyone else can just sit down as he's magic on it. So It remains to be seen, I think they're all talented but to me Dean was the star of that group. I think Roman looks like the star of that group but I don't think he's nearly as talented as Dean.

Rock-Hogan should've main evented the PPV. Tough for Jericho-HHH to follow,especially tougher when HHH was the one who beat Jericho(in Canada)

Hogan would have no problem laying down to Austin the problem was Austin had no interest in working with Hogan. The same thing happened with Rock and Michaels. When you sh** on someone and say that person is incapable of Main Eventing when they eclipse you that person returns the favor and says well you missed your chance. I'm not giving you that huge payday regardless to whether or not you'll put me over.

People criticizing the card really need to read HHH's interview the other day. Egos prevent the dream card and it's really like piecing together a big puzzle. I'm sure Vince would have preferred for Austin to face either HHH or Hogan but when he says no what are you going to do?

So true. Heel Austin vs. Face Trips for the title should have happened. The story wrote itself for that with the whole Power Trip storyline. I wouldn't change Rock/Hogan. Those 2 matches would have been the perfect double main event. Such a shame egos got in the way and if I had to guess I'd say the likely culprit here is Austin unfortunately.

I forgot Mr. Perfect was still there. Him against Angle would have been amazing. I was trying to remember some of the storylines going on around that time. I don't get why we didn't see Edge vs. Christian. They had just split up, you would think they'd have a long feud that ended at WrestleMania with a match. Maybe TLC? Ok, now I'm having some fun thinking about some of the matches. I booked Kane vs. Big Show because they kind of had a feud going into Royal Rumble that year.

Main event:

"Stone Cold" Steve Austin (champion) vs. Triple H

"Hollywood" Hulk Hogan vs. The Rock

Mr. Perfect vs. Kurt Angle

Undertaker vs. Ric Flair

TLC:

Edge vs. Christian

Kane vs. Big Show

Triple threat tag match:

The Outsiders vs. the APA vs. The Dudleys

Billy & Chuck vs. The Hardy Boyz

Chris Jericho vs. RVD

Hardcore title match:

Hardcore Holly vs. Booker T vs. Goldust vs. DDP vs. William Regal vs. Spike Dudley vs. Hurricane vs. Maven

Fatal 4 way divas match:

Jazz vs. Trish Stratus vs. Mighty Molly vs. Lita
