Re: How did the WWE screw up the Mania IC title match so badly?

If Samy was officially on main roster since RR, this WrestleMania match would be the third time that they would get a singles match at PPV.

Owens vs Miz vs Neville/Dolph vs Zayn would be better.

Sad to know that Cara, Cody and Ryder will be there.

Re: How did the WWE screw up the Mania IC title match so badly?

Doing guys like Ryder a favor and getting them a WM paycheck. That's all it is. It does nothing for the IC Title. It's odd how they're making the IC Title the multi-man ladder match at two consecutive WM's. Where did that idea come from? :drake1

Re: How did the WWE screw up the Mania IC title match so badly?

the fact Kalisto and Ryback have a singles match for the US title at Mania, but Owens doesn't is ridiculous.

I get people saying the other guys deserve to have the Mania paycheck. But that's what the Andre Battle Royal is for. Kayfabe-wise how does someone like Ryder, who has been an afterthought for pretty much the entire year, deserve a shot at the IC title on the "Grandest Stage of them all"? Makes zero sense.

The IC title is supposed to be the 2nd most prestigious title in the company, but they definitely don't treat it that way.

I don't like Ziggler , but I understand why he's involved because of all the fake awesome bullshit matches from February, but Stardust and especially fucking Zach Ryder shouldn't be in it. That's dumb.

If you put Zach Ryder in it, you might as well put Primo or Epico in it since they have the same amount of wins over the last three years . Fuck it, send it Tyler Breeze too.

God I miss Cena, Orton and Rollins. If they were here, WrestleMania 32's card wouldn't look like the drizzling shits.

That makes no sense. Neville got injured so they didn't need to pay extra for a guy that would not work the show but instead substituted him for Zack Ryder a guy that has not been active for years. Is it a rule we need 7 guys to compete for the IC title every year? Nope.

The bottom line is they don't give a damn if they pay these guys or not. They just shove everyone together because they think quantity over quality.

Owens vs. Zayn isn't a money match for mania, at least not yet. Pre show perhaps. A 7- man ladder match is more special and suitable for wrestlemania.

How can you ask this considering the state of the card in general? The IC title match is the least of WWE's problems right now.

They wasted Owens vs AJ on Raw & Smackdown.

Fair point, though the IC title seemed to have a solid direction which many would have been pretty hyped to see, which is more than what can be said about a lot of the card. Even other alternatives like a 4 way involving Owens, Styles, Jericho and Zayn would have been far better, but they've somehow ended up with another convoluted ladder match.

Even when good things are staring them in the face they end up going with something totally different.

Seems to be that they're trying to replace the MiTB match from Wrestlemania for some reason or another, as if people would be that bothered by its absence at this point...

I don't get it... what the fuck did loyal fans do to deserve this idiotic kind of booking?

Does the WWE even try anymore?
