It's the showcase of the immortals, but this year's lead up to WrestleMania has been rife with major injuries. Seth Rollins. John Cena. Randy Orton. Sting. The list goes on and on, along with a newsworthy suspension (Titus O'Neil) and an unfortunate sudden retirement (Daniel Bryan). With so many top-tier and mid-card wrestlers sidelined for the single most important day of the year, how can they possibly write a four hour show? Many people are speculating as to what WWE could do to make this year's WrestleMania build off the successes of WrestleMania XXX and WrestleMania 31, and it has inherently created an atmosphere of uncertainty and open-endedness. So the question is this: how can WWE's creative team work with what they've got?
WrestleMania practically sells itself, but that shouldn't mean that the product should take a back seat. In fact, with the bombshell they just dropped on Raw with Shane McMahon returning to WWE, it's already looking like they know exactly what they need to do in order to sell the fans on this year's show. The biggest night of the year is only a month or so away, so they better act fast in filling up the rest of the card.
The clock is ticking, but we should still have faith. After all, WrestleMania 32 has the potential of being a historical show and we wouldn't bet against Vince McMahon under those circumstances. Here's a list of the things we feel would make the show enjoyable for all those who choose to watch on the WWE Network for the low, low price of only $9.99!
15 Home State Heroes
14 The Hell in a Cell Match
13 The End of the PG Era?
12 Daniel Bryan Surprise Appearance
11 A Mean Street Posse Reunion
10 Ladies and Gentleman, My Name is Paul Heyman
9 We Want Lana!
8 Roman Reigns Heel Turn
7 The Undertaker/Triple H Entrances
6 Record Breaking Attendance Figure
5 The Wyatt Family Disbanding
4 Celebrity Guests
3 Possible Brand Split
2 Brock vs. Ambrose
1 Debut of a New Championship Belt
I thought that once the days of the spinner belt were over that anything they used afterward would be so much more appealing. And I was kind of right: they used the Big Gold belt along with the current WWE logo championship belt for a little while, and I think now would be just about the right time to go in a different direction. While the WWE logo belt is worlds better than the spinner, it still doesn't have that classic championship belt look to it. The NXT belt also suffers from this problem, but at least that one still features thick metal plates. With the WWE going back to the classic Intercontinental Championship belt, I think the World Heavyweight title should also revert to something a little more timeless.
