    Wrestlemania 35

    Before the reset we had one hell of a Wrestlemania 35 thread going, even before Wrestlemania 34 was done and dusted.

    So if you can remember what you said in the first version, or want to chat about where we'll be this time next April, have at it.

    I think we are getting:

    Rousey vs Charlotte as the main event
    Bryan (Rumble Winner) vs the Miz for the WWE Title
    Reings vs Strowman for the Universal Title
    Ziggler vs McIntyre grudge match
    AOP vs Reunited American Alpha for the RAW Tag Titles
    Rollins vs Ambrose for the IC Title
    Asuka vs Ruby Riott for Smackdown Women's Title
    Lesnar vs Lashley II
    Sanity vs Usoís vs New Day for Smackdown Tag Titles

    Man if they really were committed to Roman just running roughshod, make him a heel authority figure and just have him win by hook or by crook til Mania and then face Daniel Bryan. The ultimate story of people's champ vs. company's champ that you could probably ever tell. With the history between Bryan/HHH anyway, there's so many layers there.

    ^ I've heard that idea before and, handled well, it does look like a license to print money.

    My preferences for main event matches are:

    - Rousey (Raw Womens Champ) v Charlotte (Rumble Winner)
    - AJ Styles (WWE Champ) v Daniel Bryan (Rumble Winner)
    - Roman Reigns (Universal Champ) v. Seth Rollins v Dean Ambrose (those two have an iron man match to name the number 1 contender and draw)
    - Becky v Askua for the Smackdown womens
    - And maybe they should have the 1st women's tag belts crown here with Sasha & Bayley v Alexa & Nia

    Then outside of that you've probably got to find a spot for all the part timers.

    I have kind of warmed up to women's tag team titles. I think that would've absolutely helped Absolution, Riott Squad, Iconic Duo, and other teams who get called up in bulk but don't have a connection with the fans. It allows them to compete for championships while not being buried or jobbed out to the stars. As they succeed and gain traction, you move them into singles competition.

    I still think it was either planned then ditched recently or is happening soon. The other week on Smackdown Naomi and Lana made a truce out of nowhere (which hasn't been mentioned since) and another few random alliances formed (Dana & Fox, Jax & Natalya).

    However I do think there are too many titles. I personally would firstly ditch the US title. There are only a handful of Smackdown males singles guys who get regular TV time and I'm pretty sure around 7 or 8 or so guys don't need two belts to fight over- especially when it's generally the same guys who win both- you lose a World title feud you go after the US (see Nakamura), you lose a US title feud you go after the WWE (see Rusev). Rubbish. NXT was fine for years with 3 titles with probably an even bigger roster. This Paul Heyman 2002 "Smackdown Six" era that people rave about had no midcard belt and that worked fine for them (in an era with shorter matches, the Smackdown 6 doubled as the tag & midcard division, and the women's division was pillow fights between Torrie Wilson & Dawn Marie)

    Thing is, if they were to introduce tag titles now Bayley and Sasha would probably win them.

    My theory is that they'll go for the tag titles, have Bayley and Sasha win them. Becky wins the Smackdown one. And then somehow Charlotte gets the Raw title while those three hold those belts. Then all of the Horsewomen are champions at the same time. WWE love that kind of thing.

    I just want one baller 20 minute Bayley Vs Sasha singles bout with a defined face Bayley and heel Sasha on the main roster, showing what they can do. But I don't think we'll get that.

    A few days ago I was guessing they would announce the tag titles on Raw with the tournament final happening at Summerslam with Sasha & Bayley v Charlotte & Askua being the final.

    Can't see Charlotte getting the Raw women's belt until at least Wrestlemania now. But the Sasha Bayley feud seems to rewritten on a weekly basis and why its had has no direction the idea last week might be them to go after tag belts to Sasha turning and it being a Summerslam match come Monday

    Few months further on, anyone think they know how this card is going to take shape?

    These bloody rumours of The Rock coming in to wrestle Reigns have me tearing my hair out. Now there's stuff flying around about Michaels wrestling again too?! Just when you think we're getting over that first god damn crest of the mountain that is part-timers....

    'Mania 35 should be headlined by The Shield in a Triple Threat. I don't think there's any doubt about that. It just makes sense and is a match worthy of the spot. But seeing as they're all under 40 and wrestle full-time, no chance of that happening.

    Anything beyond it, too, seems to be hard to predict right now.

    I'm okay with The Rock wrestling. I am NOT okay with The Rock losing to Roman, but what can you do?

    Yep, this 100%

    Imagine The Shield vs some form of Bullet Club - AJ, Balor.... throw in someone else of note (probably Nakamura, because, fuck history)

    Rather than what I think we'll get, what I want to get:

    Shield Triple Threat for the Uni title
    Becky vs Ronda, title for title
    Bryan vs Miz for the WWE Championship
    The IIconics vs LayCool because if they're not doing this at Evolution they're pissing me off

    I couldn't give a toss about what happens with anyone else on the roster. Is that bad? I mean, Styles doesn't even get a bout here and I've enjoyed what he's doing even if WWE can't give him a half decent clean win while he's champion. And, I mean, one of those bouts is highly unlikely because I think Layla is completely uninterested in coming back.

    There are only two matches I want to see The Shield wrestle this year either three man tag v The Elite (Omega & The Bucks) or a triple threat for the Universal Title.

    I'd also accept Reigns v Strowman for the Universal Title with Strowman finally earning it and Seth & Dean getting a 1v1 match but it is a distant 3rd.

    I do not need Roman to go against another dude years past his prime. The guy is getting hung out to dry year after year with the way they use him (even though he is 'over-pushed').

    If he is still champ I'd also love to see AJ v Cody, WWE Title v NWA Title.

    Othet cool matches they could DO with AJ.

    Demon Balor v AJ
    Orton v AJ

    I think the Bryan v Miz almost writes itself particularly if Miz somehow sneaks his way into a title ruin at Royal Rumble. I'd also love Bryan v full diabolical heel Almas.

    Can we get Revival v Undisputed Era or Moustache Mountain somehow, I don't care what titles just get it on there.

    I do like the idea of Becky v Rhonda too, badass v badass, give Charlotte a smaller stage this year and let the light shine on someone else.

    Finally Drew Gulack (c) v Mustafa Ali for the Cruiserweight Championship with Ali finally winning the belt and taking up the mantle as the face of 205 Live (which he arguably already is but it would solidify the story arc from extra in the original tournament to top off the card).

    To be honest, The Revivial vs Any Tag Team Not On Raw would be killer. Smackdown has every current team I want to see The Revival face.

    I'd also except The Revival vs D-Generation X as revenge for the Raw 1000 show, where it's just Dash and Dawson breaking both of HBK's legs.

    EDIT: Well, with Reigns now out of the picture, that shakes things up a bit. Suspect it means Strowman gets the title at Crown Jewel and they run with him as champion into Mania, but there's nothing quite like something of this nature to make Vince jerk a knee and lob a load of extra cash at someone - could we see Lesnar back as champion?

    Who would you have face Strowman at Mania for the title assuming he's still champion?
