With Wrestlemania 26 now behind us and as others continue to analyze the matches, their quality, their outcome, and the ongoing implications, I decided to look to the future and give my "fantasy" card for Wrestlemania 27.
The benefit of doing this now rather than in 2011 is there are currently no storylines that are inevitably leading to Wrestlemania 27 matches to influence my picks. For this I have assumed that the roster will stay as it currently is apart from one "celebrity" appearance.
Also, I accept that some of the storylines and matches I present are much more realistic than others, this is a "fantasy" card which includes some genuinely possible matches.
There are three superstars than some may say are noticeable absentees:
Batista—I expect Batista to retire possibly within the year and he just didnt fit into my card anyway.
Kane—I could not think of an interesting story for him, and can you imagine the impact of a long hiatus followed by the return of the mask for an Undertaker retirement angle?!
MVP—Just simply did not fit on the card which is full of main-eventers and young up-and-comers, he is neither.
