The Disaster That is WrestleMania 32

WrestleMania 32 will be my first WrestleMania since I started watching wrestling again. This WrestleMania may get me to stop watching again. The passed two WrestleManias the WWE has tried to push a garbage main event on the fans but bailed themselves out at the last minute. At WrestleMania 30 when Daniel Bryan won the right to make the main event a triple threat and at WrestleMania 31 when Seth Rollins cashed in Money in the Bank. This year the WWE had another chance to fix the mess they made with Roadblock. Make the matches the fans want and cut out the crap. They could've even compromised with the fans. Make Dean Ambrose the WWE Champion going in and have him lose to Roman Reigns at Mania. Instead we Triple H vs. Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose vs. Brock Lesnar. Every match announced for the card makes me not want to watch. If I didn't have the WWE Network, I wouldn't spend money on this event. Why? It is because WWE is pushing everyone the crowd dislikes. That is not an exaggeration. Let's look at the matches.
  1. WWE Champion Triple H vs. Roman Reigns
  2. Undertaker vs. Shane McMahon in Hell in a Cell
  3. Brock Lesnar vs. Dean Ambrose in a Street Fight
  4. Kevin Owens defends his IC Title in a multiman ladder match (Rumor)
  5. US Champion Kalisto vs. Ryback
  6. WWE Tag Champs the New Day vs. League of Nation in a 4 on 3 tag match
  7. WWE Divas Champ Charlotte vs. Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks
  8. AJ Styles vs. Chris Jericho
  9. The Usos vs. the Dudley Boyz
  10. Andre the Giant Battle Royale
Let me start with the IC Title Match. Why is this the ladder match? WWE could have easily made this a triple threat between Kevin Owen, AJ Styles and Chris Jericho. This match could've been AJ's big WrestleMania moment or Jericho's tenth IC Title Reign. Instead we get match where Owens will lose it to Ziggler or Miz or Zayn or Sin Cara. He could retain it, which is my preference, but I bet Ziggler wins to stick it to the Authority.
The Kalisto/Ryback match will be announced on the March 17th edition of Smackdown (Spoilers.) I understand that this is to build up Kalisto as the next Rey Mysterio but why can't this be the multiman ladder match. Stick Ryback in the Battle Royale until they can come up with a good gimmick for him.
The New Day vs. League of Nations is a thing still. Let me start by saying I love the New Day as heels. They are really good at it. So let's turn them face and have them face the most boring stable in WWE. Who the hell is booking for the WWE? Is Vince the head booker now? I'm not even done with all the matches and I'm annoyed. Anyways, a handicap match for the titles is something I've never seen, at least not recently. This could have been Enzo & Cass' big chance to win gold, but no we get the League of Nations. The Bullet Club could've debuted and brought chaos, but no we get the League of Nations.
AJ Styles vs. Chris Jericho, this match just doesn't make sense to me unless they're burying Styles on the grandest stage of them all. I love heel Jericho but I just don't care about this match again.
The Usos vs. the Dudley Boyz, I'm just going to say no thanks and move on.
The Divas Title Match, may be the show stealer. The three best woman on the main roster battling for gold on the biggest Pay Per View of the year, this match screams great. Any outcome would be fine with me but I'd prefer Sasha Banks come out as champion. I love Becky Lynch and would love her as champ too. Charlotte is kind of getting old and I'd like to see her fight her way back up. This will be match of the night.
Brock Lesnar vs. Dean Ambrose in a street fight. I know exactly how this is going to end. Dean's going to kick out of the second F-5, but finally gets pinned after a third one. Brock Lesnar picks him up and raises his hand earning the Beast's respect. Then they're both attacked by the Wyatt Family before they carry Brock away. The Wyatt's don't have a match for WrestleMania and will probably compete in the Andre The Giant Battle Royale. The Wyatt's could also cost Lesnar the match and Dean could win that way but either way this match is lame.
The Undertaker vs. Shane McMahon is another match just to get people to buy tickets. Shane is going to lose. It's as simple as that. WWE isn't going to make the Undertaker lose at Mania again.
Then there is the Main Event. Roman Reigns challenging Triple H for the Title. As predictable as they come. Roman Reigns is the new John Cena, minus the fact John Cena is good on the mic and some fans actually like him. This will be the first WrestleMania that will end in boos, beers being thrown from the crowd and the Champ being rushed to the back so he isn't attacked by fans. Triple H will have to win after big interference for the crowd to put this match over.
This may go down in history as the worst WrestleMania yet. They've had some bad ones but this one could take the cake. You've been warned.

How I Would Book the Bullet Club in WWE

I am not very happy with the WWE right now. It is mainly due to WWE shoving Roman Reigns down our throats. I honestly don't hate Roman Reigns, but I don't want him as my number one contender and I certainly don't want him as my champion. WWE however doesn't care. Roman Reigns is going to win the title at WrestleMania against Triple H. Sorry to Dean Ambrose, unfortunately you are probably going to lose at Roadblock. WWE also has no plans for turning Roman Reigns or Dean Ambrose heel. This leaves a big hole for a new heel to take on Reigns for the title after WrestleMania. I would love Bray Wyatt to do so, but that probably won't happen. The Raw after WrestleMania sees Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose celebrating in the ring when they are confronted by Finn Balor and the debuting Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson. That's right the Bullet Club or in this case the Balor Club. Before I go further they could also use AJ Styles for this role if they want to keep Finn Balor as NXT Champion. Balor challenges Reigns for his title and when Ambrose tells him to get in the back of the line, Gallows and Anderson attack them. After a bit of a stalemate the main event is book for Reigns and Ambrose in a tag match against Gallows and Anderson. During the main event Gallows and Anderson control the majority of the match, but when Reigns finally fights back Finn Balor interferes and the referee calls a DQ. The Balor Club proceed to beat downs Reigns and Ambrose before stealing Roman's title. The next several weeks have Roman Reigns trying to get his belt back from Finn Balor, who keeps escaping with it until the week before the PPV after WrestleMania. (I honestly have no idea which one that is.) Finn Balor tells Roman Reigns he can have it back if he beats him at the PPV. Reigns says if Balor Club can beat his team he can have the belt. Balor Agrees and the Balor Club begin their beat down on Reigns and Ambrose until the returning John Cena makes the save. The three stand tall as the Balor Club live to fight another day. When the PPV rolls around, footage is shown of John Cena being attacked before the match. Reigns and Ambrose decided to go on with the match and have it be a handicap match instead. The Balor Club control the whole match but towards the end Reigns mounts a comeback. He takes out Gallows and Anderson, but is blindsided by Finn Balor. Out comes John Cena, miraculously healed and jumps on the ring apron reaching for Reigns to tag him in. Reigns fights Balor off long enough to tag Cena in. Cena stares down Balor, but quickly turns and F-U's Reigns. Notice I said F-U and AA. Balor proceeds to cover Reigns 1-2-3. Balor grabs the belt and a microphone and hands them to Cena. Cena holds up the belt and declares, "The Champ is here!". Now because a John Cena heel turns is like an urban legend, no one will see this coming and the crowd will be left in shock. This will be the birth of Hollywood Cena. In my opinion this would increase viewership tenfold. People have been wanting a John Cena heel turn for a while now. This could also build up for Seth Rollins' return as a face and could lead to a Shield reunion in an attempt to take out the growing Balor Club, which will not be renamed Cena Club. It could also lead to a completely dominant run that leads to an implosions. Now I know people say a Cena heel turn will never happen because it's bad for business, but what would WWE rather have? A face that some people will pay to see win or a heel that everyone will pay to see lose?
