WrestleMania is the time to shine. It is the perfect opportunity to strap a rocket on your back and reach for the stars.
Even if you are not in a championship match, you can still be high up on the card to be treated as high profile.
Examples of this are simple. In the past two years, we had Randy Orton take on CM Punk and Rey Mysterio vs. Cody Rhodes, great superstars delivering superb matches with unexpected finishes.
Other high-profile matches were Chris Jericho vs. the legends of the ring (Rick Steamboat, Jimmy Snuka and Roddy Piper) or the fiasco that was Morrison-Stratus-Sn00ki vs Ziggler and LayCool.
For this year, I hope to see Mick Foley lace up his boots and attempt to silence (via Socko) one of my favorites, The Miz, in an Anything Goes, Falls Count Anywhere match. It would be a great match serving to elevate the Awesome One much further and give us fans the pleasure of seeing Cactus Jack in action one more time.
A Miz face turn could result from this, and it could be the best thing for him right now. No more nonsense with his character; it is getting ridiculous.
Another great show would have to be Randy Orton taking on Dolph Ziggler, two of the finest talents offered by WWE as we speak. The Viper doesn't need titles anymore. A program with the blond Superstar would prove to everyone he can put people over if needed, and it gives Ziggler more credibility to be used later as he enter one of the most important years of his career.
What else is there? I read somewhere about Shaquille O'neal vs. Big Show. Please VETO that immediately! Enough said.
Big Show vs. Kevin Nas. Now there is an idea.
Ever since Big Sexy returned last year and had that stare down with Show, I have asked myself when would it happen? They are both on their last leg; give them their Mania moment. I know they will not disappoint us.
The high-profile matches are where pro-wrestling connects with entertainment. They are usually worth our attention just as long as they don't involve ridiculousness like Nicki Minaj wanting a crack at the Divas title.
