Ten Matches That Would Make WrestleMania 25 Historic
So far, Wrestlemania 25 looks underwhelming. The pros are Triple H vs Randy Orton and HBK vs The Undertaker.
Sadly, MITB has a dull lineup, and Edge vs Big Show looks flat as far as title matches go.
Plus, we still await Chris Jericho's opponent, we don't know where John Cena will figure, and haven't a confirmed stipulation for the Hardy's bout.
So, what matches would blow the fans away?
Here's what I'd put on the card; some possible, others not so and some confirmed. However, they'd make WM25 spectacular.
Womens and Diva's Championship Unification: Melina vs Beth Phoenix vs Maryse vs Michelle McCool
Opening the show is the Fatal 4 Way Womens and Divas Championship Unification match. The Divas championship has not lived up to the standards of the Womens championship, and needs to be dropped.
What better way than to pit four of the biggest female grapplers in the WWE against each other on the grandest stage of them all? A perfect opener to a potentially historic event.
Money In The Bank TLC: Kofi Kingston, Kane, CM Punk, Vladimir Koslov, MVP, Shelton Benjamin, John Morrison and Evan Bourne
Yes, you read it correctly - MITB "TLC" match. The concept of the MITB match is becoming a little stale, so why not spice it up with a few chair shots and bodies plummeting through tables?
With the powerhouses Kane and Koslov, the aerial abilities of Kingston, Bourne, Morrison and Benjamin, and the technical prowess of MVP and last year's winner CM Punk, there is enough variety to make this the best MITB match yet.
ECW Championship: Jack Swagger vs Christian
Since Christian's highly anticipated return to the WWE on the ECW brand, his goal has been to capture the ECW Championship from the All-American American, Jack Swagger.
In his debut match, Christian pinned the cocky youngster, the second pin-fall Swagger had succumbed to in as many weeks after an undefeated streak.
However, the Instant Classic has had the wrong rub of the green in recent weeks, being pinned twice by the Champion. With a fierce rivalry brewing, this would be one hell of a bout.
Brother vs Brother Cage Match: Matt Hardy vs Jeff Hardy.
An all-but-confirmed match, this is one of the highly anticipated matches of the night. Jeff refuses to fight Matt due to his love and respect for his older brother, despite Matt costing him the title at the Royal Rumble, and declaring his disownership for Jeff.
So what better than to stick them both in a cage?
With no way of escaping but over the top of the 15-foot structure, Jeff will have no choice but to fight. With family ties on the line, this will be an emotional and tense battle.
Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker.
A match already scheduled for Wrestlemania 25, this is going to be a classic.
After Kane interrupted and tombstoned Undertaker in his Hell in a Cell match against Shawn Michaels over a decade ago, I, like many others, feel as though The Phenom's rivalry with The Showstopper is unfinished, which only adds to the anticipation.
With Undertaker's 16-0 WM record at stake, and The Heartbreak Kid determined to prove he is Mr Wrestlemania, this could very much be their finest hour in the WWE.
Icon vs Icon II: John Cena vs The Rock.
With Vickie Guerrero declaring John Cena will not be participating in the World Heavyweight title match, rumours are circulating that WWE are trying to persuade Hulk Hogan to face him at Wrestlemania.
Well, I go one better, and throw him in the ring one on one with The Great One: The Rock. Hulk Hogan passed the torch to The Rock a few years ago, so why not he pass it on to John Cena, arguably WWE's biggest star of today?
I'm not Cena's biggest fan, but hell, I'd pay to see that! Here's hoping...
Submission: Chris Jericho vs Bret Hart.
With his berating of Hall Of Famers Ric Flair and Rowdy Roddy Piper—and HOF elect Ricky Steamboat—in recent weeks, Chris Jericho is very likely to be facing a legendary wrestler at Wrestlemania. I know it's a huge wish which is always going to be in vain, but I'd love to see him face Bret Hart in a submission match.
Two of Canada's all-time great technical wrestlers, I'd be mad not to. The Hitman vs The Ayatola of Rock n Rolla, The Sharpshooter vs The Walls of Jericho, need I go on? It'd be amazing.
World Heavyweight Championship: Edge vs Big Show vs Rey Mysterio.
Needless to say, I wasn't the only one stunned when Vickie Guerrero announced her husband, Edge, would be defending his title against Big Show at Wrestlemania.
Don't get me wrong, I was happy that John Cena wasn't in the main event yet again, but Big Show? He's done next to nothing since he came back. It looks a little empty.
So after the superb finish to The Raw Elimination Chamber at NWO, I'd love to see Rey Mysterio involved. It'd make sense due to the La Familia angle. It'd make the match more exciting.
Legacy (Cody Rhodes/Ted DiBiase Jr.) vs The Corporation (Vince and Shane McMahon) w/Steve Austin as Special Guest Referee.
You'd have to be living under a rock to not realise how much a pain in the backside Legacy have been to the McMahon's in recent times, so for me this match is a must, and I can genuinely see this happening.
With Randy Orton being out of the picture due to his title match, the McMahons will be looking for retribution against the next best thing, Cody Rhodes and Ted DiBiase Jr. And who better to enforce the match than Hall of Famer Steve Austin?
It'd be one bad-ass brawl, that's for sure.
Main Event - WWE Championship, No-DQ: Triple H vs. Randy Orton.
Recently, Randy Orton has done everything to tear apart the McMahons. He's punted Vince, beat the living crap and punted Shane—then went one step too far, and RKO'd Stephanie McMahon, the wife of WWE Champion Triple H.
Livid, Triple H—in casual hunter fashion—gave chase to Orton wielding a sledgehammer, forcing The Viper to declare a match against the champ at Wrestlemania.
This is going to be one hell of a battle, make it a No-DQ and it will blow the roof off.
