Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. Randy Orton vs. The Miz vs. Wade Barrett
I have a gut-wrenching feeling that next year's WWE World Heavyweight Championship clash will be decisively dismal.
This year's 18-second fiasco between Sheamus and Daniel Bryan was a disaster, and the year before saw Edge's final match against the extremely undeserving Alberto Del Rio.
The World title always seems to be given the short straw at WrestleMania, but I believe this match would more than make up for the recent years of mediocrity.
Sadly, the company has had such a calamitous year in its strides to build main event calibre superstars, especially heels, that heading into WrestleMania it really is hard to find two men who would justify the title match billing.
That is why I have chosen the Fatal-4-Way match as the host for the World title match, and here is how I would see the four men ending up crossing paths.
The way to book it:
With WWE TLC 2012 approaching at the weekend, there is a painfully realistic chance that John Cena may be handed Dolph Ziggler's Money in the Bank briefcase.
This would be a complete disaster for Ziggler, as what little credibility he has to this day would be diminished, and continue to show how WWE constantly prefers its proven draws over those who have ironically yet to be given that push to main event stardom.
However, assuming Ziggler wins this weekend, and hopefully cashes in on the winner of Big Show vs. Sheamus, we see the "Show-off" scrape by as World champion until WrestleMania.
Therein lies in the difficulty of selecting who should win the Royal Rumble. As you'll see later down my slideshow, my challenger for CM Punk is not a man who will be winning the 30-man match, and therefore it would have to be one of The Miz, Randy Orton or Wade Barrett.
Miz's face turn started slowly, I was the first to admit, but his antics on the microphone have been some of the funniest moments of the year during the last couple of weeks.
His segments with CM Punk and Team Rhodes Scholars have really endeared him to the entire WWE Universe and by keeping the momentum going, I believe giving Miz the rub at the Royal Rumble would be a superb move.
My logic is not great, I will also admit, for including Orton and Barrett. I was tempted to include them in the 12-man tag match, but they have so much more to give the company, and they are extremely deserving of a higher billing at WrestleMania.
Ziggler vs. Miz is an enticing prospect for long-time admirers of the duo, but it is a match WWE would surely have no faith in as a World title encounter.
By having Ziggler and Miz distracted by Orton and Barrett, much in the vein that the main event at Over The Limit came about this year, where Orton and Chris Jericho became inserted into Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio, a Fatal-4-Way match could be born simply from a chaotic tag team match on Raw.
As long as Ziggler or Miz wins the match, their feud could continue and make for one the greatest in years, as if often the case when two young, ambitious superstars are paired together.
Chance of it happening: Unlikely
I am truly stumped as to how WWE will book the World title match at WrestleMania, but I assume, as has been the case for the last few years, that it will a one-on-one match.
I also can't see either one of these men involved in the match. If Ziggler does win the title at TLC, I predict a short title run is on the cards for him that will end at Elimination Chamber, where a seasoned veteran will surely claim the gold and defend it in April.
Hopefully I'm wrong, because the World title needs a prestigious main event at WresleMania, and by including at least two of these four men, we would be guaranteed to get it.
