Re: Rebooking WM7-WM10
I'll try to put myself in the mentality of a booker without the benefit of 20/20 hindsight, and I won't use matches like HBK/Razor Ladder because I wouldn't have thought of this at the time. I'll simply dialing myself back to a few months before these Wrestlemanias and booking according to what I got.
I'll start with Wrestlemania 8, and do the other ones later. I want to do that first because my card would be very different from what is in the OP (which is generally agreed by many should've been the card). My card would go like this.
Ric Flair vs Sid Justice for the WWF championship
Hulk Hogan vs Jake The Snake Roberts
The Rockers vs Money Inc. for the TT championships
Randy Savage vs The Undertaker
Rowdy Piper vs Ric Martel for the IC championship
Natural Disasters vs LOD
Bret Hart vs The Mountie
The Big Boss Man vs The Repo Man
Papa Shango vs The British Bulldog
Warrior's return announced ahead of time to sell PPVs
First, I know that Hogan is out the door. I also know that Flair/Hogan isn't tearing it up on the houseshow circuit. At this point I have a fresh babyface in Sid, whom I DON'T know will also be leaving soon. I want to build for the future, so he's my main event against Ric. He's taking the title.
I'm also building to a Roberts/Hogan program, building off Jakes established heel run. The Savage/Roberts feud started too early in 1991, so I'm not going to drag this all the way to Wrestlemania 8. Instead, Savage transitions into a feud with Undertaker, and Roberts terrorizes Hogan.
Undertaker/Savage. Undertaker is still heel, and feuds with Savage. You can built it around Undertaker kidnapping Liz or something. Ether way, it's a compelling feud that hasn't happened.
The Rockers aren't splitting yet, and they win the TT titles here. They go on a mini run up until Summerslam where they drop it, and THEN they split.
At that point as a booker I probably wouldn't have thought of doing a face vs face IC title match, so instead I'm doing the loudmouth manly Piper vs the metrosexual arrogant Martel
Bret gets his canceled match against Mountie.
