In this thread discuss what Wrestlemania matches should have different winners. The 2 that stick out to me is

HHH vs Booker T at WM 19- Booker T was as hot as he's ever been and deserved his moment. It seemed he used his whole offensive arsenel and gave a great performance then all of a sudden HHH hit one pedigree and just like that it was over

and

HHH vs Randy Orton at WM 25- Orton had great momentum and heat going into this match yet HHH basically squashed him


So what are some WM matches that you feel should have had different outcomes?

I think Orton being "sqaushed" by HHH was one of the best things to happen to him. He's doing pretty damn good these days after all.

Other than that, I don't really care about the outcomes of matches really. They usually play out how they should.

I am going to say the title match at WM 9 most needed to end differently.

Hi, I just returned after being gone a year.. teamed with my buddy and lost to Money Inc but its ok.. now I am the WWF champion. Oh yeah I will be leaving again here soon by the way. Thank you.

WrestleMania 16's main event not only should have had a different outcome, it should have been a different match.

In reality, Triple H retained the WWF Title in a fatal four way that included The Rock and - for some reason - Mick Foley and Big Show.

It should've been Rock defeating Triple H for the title in an epic one-on-one encounter.

And yes, I know HHH's win set up Vince's heel turn and the birth of the McMahon-Helmsley Era, but Rock won the damn belt a month later anyway.

Booker T over Triple H, WM 19 (WHC)
The Rock over Foley/Big Show/Triple H, WM 2000 (WWF Title)
Shawn Michaels over John Cena, WM 23 (WWE Title)
Anyone else in the match over Jack Swagger, WM 26 (MITB)
The Rock and Sock Connection over Evolution, WM 20
Randy Orton over Kurt Angle and Rey Mysterio, WM 22 (WHC)
The Rock over Stone Cold Steve Austin, WM 15 (WWF Title)

The last one is debatable, however.

Trips over Jericho w/ Steph, WM18.... pretty much cemented HHH as God and Jericho as a permanent backseater to all the big dogs--in the eyes of the general audience, that is; personally, I'm a huge Jericho mark.

Y2J just won the unified titles by beating Austin and the Rock, only to give it up to Captain Ballhog as soon as fuckin' bignose came back from injury... thus making Jericho a paper champion in many's eyes.

Rey Mysterio vs Kurt Angle vs Randy Orton at Wrestlemania 22, either Kurt Angle should have retained or Orton wins the title. Rey winning gave birth to some of the worst episodes of Smackdown regardling the title I had ever seen.

One that has always bugged me is Jeff Jarrett v. Razor Ramon at WrestleMania XI. Ramon certainly should have won, but even if one insists that Jarrett should have retained the IC title, it should have happened in a different way, rather than the lame blatant DQ by the Roadie.

All of these for sure. I would like to add Shawn Michaels vs. John Cena at Wrestlemania 23. Shawn should have won the match, but I understand why they had Cena retain the belt...but I just find it interesting how they had both Triple H and HBK tap out to the STFU at back to back Wrestlemania's to let Cena retain his WWE Championship. :argh:

Out of them all, I would have loved if HHH went over Cena at Mania 22 for the sole reason that the next night on Raw he could have took a sledgehammer to the Spinner belt and destroyed it. That would have been pretty darn awesome.

This. The one-on-one match where Rock beats HHH at Backlash 2000 is a brilliant match and it really shoulda happened at Wrestlemania.

WM19 where HHH beat Booker is the other obvious choice. The ending of the match is ridiculous as it takes HHH eons to actually pin Booker off the Pedigree.
