The WWE has given its fans some of the best and worst memories a fan can ask for. The purpose of this company is for entertainment purposes, so when a fan purchases a ticket, they expect the ticket value to live up to its expectations. WWE provides everything in one: drama, high tension, must see moments, and performances from some of the greatest athletes on the planet.
Memories have been made and plenty more are in store. Daniel Bryan winning the WWE championship at WrestleMania XXX after going through hell and back to get there is one example of the magic that can happen in the WWE. Another great example was Bret "The Hitman" Hart making his long awaited return to Monday Night Raw, after being screwed by Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels at the 1997 edition of Survivor Series. A grudge that was held over 12 years came to an end back in 2010 when the boss and Bret put their differences aside.
As time goes by, so does the chance for big moments. The WWE does its best to give us fans what we want, but there are some things that need to be done before it's too late.
Superstars ain't getting any younger and momentum doesn't last forever, so here is a complete list of 12 things that need to happen now or never.
12 Face Of WWE vs Face Of TNA (Cena vs Styles)
These two have been destined to fight for years. For the last decade, Cena and AJ Styles have been the face of their respective brands. AJ Styles ran the yard over at TNA and Cena was the man who ran WWE. Both have unique styles that could make for a great match up.
When AJ made his long awaited debut, we knew this match had to happen. It's an unprecedented match up that fans of all over the world would love to see and we need to see it soon..
11 Triple H vs The Rock
Look, The Rock's six second match at WrestleMania 32 against Erick Rowan is not how we want to see him go out.
We know he's not in perfect ring shape, but he's more than capable of having one last big match on the WWE stage. We have seen glimpses of a potential match between him and Triple H and now is the time to make that happen. Both The Game and The Rock have been around since The Attitude Era, so one last feud between the two will be must see.
10 Goldberg Return
Perhaps the most dominant professional wrestler of all time, Goldberg dominated the WCW circuit, but had a sub-par run in the WWE back in 2003. That run lasted until 2004,where he parted ways with the company.
Since then, year after year, we've heard rumors of a Goldberg return, hoping to see another wrestler fall victim to Goldberg's deadly spear.
Goldberg has mentioned his desire to return to the ring, but nothing has happened yet. At the age of 49, something's got to give. Not many stars are able to perform at that age, so if it's going to happen, it needs to be soon.
9 Make Dolph Ziggler A Main Eventer
It has been three years since ziggler cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase on the Raw after WrestleMania 29. Everyone thought it was the beginning of Ziggler's main event push. One blow to the head later and it was over, as he would drop the World Heavyweight Championship at the Payback pay-per-view.
Since 2013, Ziggler has yet to get another shot in the main event. He's been a fan favorite for many years and we've hoped to see him once again get the reign he deserves.
Unfortunately, the popularity Ziggler once had has drastically diminished. If WWE has any plans for him to finally get the push he deserves, he needs to get it now before it's too late.
8 The Undertaker vs John Cena
The Undertaker has ran the WWE yard for over 20 years and the end of his career is definitely on its way. However, there is one man left that The Undertaker must lay to rest and his name is John Cena (cue his theme music).
The two have been destined to fight for years. With Cena just edging out of his prime and The Deadman on his way out, it's time for the man who runs the place to give The Undertaker his final match. This match should happen on The Grandest Stage of Them All, at WrestleMania 33.
7 Roman Reigns Heel Turn
If Roman Reigns wants to get some of the "haters" off his back, he's going to have to do what WWE has been trying to avoid and that's turn him heel. Its been talked about for months, but all we've gotten lately is John Cena 2.0. The WWE has been waiting far too long to fix Reigns' character and before his character gets anymore criticism, they need to make Roman a heel. The best way to do that is for Reigns to turn on Dean Ambrose.
It's risky for WWE to send Reigns down a similar path to Cena's. Just because it worked once, doesn't mean it will work again.
6 Batista One Last Run
After deciding not to pursue a career in MMA, Batista made his long awaited return to the WWE in early 2014.The Animal's 2014 run in WWE has to be one of the most unsuccessful returns of all time. Perhaps that could have been avoided if he did not undeservingly win the Royal Rumble over WWEs hottest superstar at the time, Daniel Bryan. Nonetheless, Batista showed he still had some life left in the tank.
Rumors have filled the internet over the past twelves months that Batista will have one last run. Batista is now 47 years old, so realistically, father time won't be on his side if he waits any longer.
5 The Hardy Boyz Return
With The Dudley Boyz back and the Tag Team division looking solid, now would be the best time for Matt and Jeff Hardy to have one last run in the WWE.
The Hardy Boyz are one of the most exciting and popular tag teams of all time. However, they have been wrestling in other promotions over the past few years. Jeff is in his late 30s and Matt is in his early 40s. With only so much left in the tank, we need to see them come back for last run... and soon.
4 John Cena Heel Turn
We have to give it to John Cena, as he's been true to his fans and himself for the last decade. He plays the role of a good guy, but what makes his character that much better is that he's authentic. Cena is the same guy in and out of the ring, which makes him much more likable.
For the majority of his career, he's been criticized for being stale and reluctant to turn heel. Most of Cena's haters genuinely hate him. The guy could save the world and still get crap from people.
There's a time and place for everything and when John Cena makes his long awaited return after suffering a shoulder injury back in January, he should finally turn heel. We've heard it for so long that it's has to eventually happen, but realistically Cena could only have about another year of two of him in his prime. If he turns now, he can have a lengthy heel run that would eventually have him turn face to end his storied career.
3 AJ Styles' WWE Championship Run
AJ Styles has fought all over the world. He's left his mark in every promotion he's fought in and now he's fighting for the most popular professional wrestling promotion in the world. When AJ Styles made his debut at the 2016 Royal Rumble, fans went nuts. It's been a long time coming, but Styles is finally here and he's here to do big things.
With that said, there's one thing that Styles need to do and it's needs to happen shortly. He needs to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. With the resume Styles possesses, winning WWE's richest prize could solidify him as one of the greatest professional wrestlers that has ever lived.
2 Jim Ross Having A Final Run
Hands down the greatest commentator in WWE history. Jim Ross showed tremendous passion in every match he called. He made every second of WWE exciting to follow and deserves one last run or at least one last WrestleMania match to call.
Ross has been away from WWE for years and is currently working for Fox Sports and the host of his own podcast, The Ross Report.
It's very possible that he could work one last run. The fans would certainly tune in to the weekly program to hear him call one last time.
1 Kurt Angle Return
For many years now, there has been talk about Kurt Angle ending his star studded professional wrestling career with the WWE. He's been the face of TNA since his departure from the WWE back in 2006.
Angle is now 47 years old and we don't know how much he has left in the tank. If one thing is for sure, this could be the last chance for him to have a final farewell tour with the WWE.
