The PTBN series about re-booking WM cards without reusing a match from the actual show has been stuck in my craw for a while, so even though this is wildly untimely at this point, I'm going to do a few. One change, though: they had the rule that you had to keep the champs as they were (and I generally will), but could change the Rumble winner, but if I can change the Rumble winner, I should also be able to change any title matches from a PPV between RR & WM. Free TV changes will stay, but the BIGGEST STOPS ON THE ROAD TO WRESTLEMANIA count as WrestleMania. Will keep all celebrities involved in a match as well. Working backwards...
1) Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal: won by Mark Henry last eliminating Hideo Itami.
2) 2/3 falls match: Goldust/Damien Mizdow vs. The Miz/Stardust.
3) WWE Tag Team Championship: Cesaro/Tyson Kidd © vs. Mark Henry/Hideo Itami vs. Kofi Kingston/Big E. Langston vs. Ryback/Dolph Ziggler.
4) Falls count anywhere: Luke Harper vs. Bray Wyatt.
5) WWE Divas Championship: Nikki Bella © vs. Charlotte vs. Paige.
6) John Cena/Randy Orton vs. Sting/The Undertaker.
7) WWE United States Championship: Daniel Bryan vs. Rusev ©.
8) WWE Intercontinental Championship ("I Quit" cage match): Dean Ambrose © vs. Seth Rollins.
9) No disqualification: AJ Lee vs. Stephanie McMahon.
10) WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Brock Lesnar © vs, Roman Reigns.
1) Excluding Henry/Itami, nobody else in the battle royal is on the rest of the card giving it a different composition from the real one. My "company man" (in terms of who's debased themselves more for the enjoyment of Vince) ranking goes Kane/Henry/Show, and I like Henry more than Kane so he gets the "lifetime achievement award" win.
2) These storylines both stalled out, unfortunately, so this is my best solution. It's easy to combine them because they had similar themes. 2/3 ensures enough time for meaningful interaction between the two original feud partners and they can do a better job repackaging Cody/Sandow post-WM than in reality.
3) Hate to squeeze out the Usos but Jey was already hurt and I wanted to keep the "cruiser/bruiser" theme going. Originally booked as a four-way until the Usos are ruled out earlier in the day, they get to pick their replacements, so they go to Henry and ask him to pick his own partner and he picks Itami. Not anything that would need to go anywhere further than that, but it'd be a nice moment.
4) Wouldn't have to be a blowoff as much as just two dudes with history having a good brawl. They can reform the Family later, it doesn't matter.
5) Flairs gonna flair.
6) Okay, so, I don't really like Sting-'Taker as a dream match. The dynamics of it are weird, especially at WM. We got a "dream match" that wasn't really a dream match in reality, so I'm just going to have a better not-dream match that's a lot more interesting, at least. Cena doesn't have anything much to do without the Rusev feud, and Orton-Rollins didn't need to be a Mania match. Orton comes back in January and gets into what becomes a four-way at the Rumble (because I don't care enough about that match that I don't mind changing it) and the Orton-Rollins blowoff is at Fastlane. This is the Authority going amok and pitting their enemies against each other. It's face-face and just a generational battle. Old guys go over because duh.
7) So Daniel Bryan might need something to do, right? Well, here we go. It can be America vs. Russia, but America from the perspective of its most common man who can do the most uncommon of things. The son of a log-scaler. It's a completely fresh match that writes itself.
8) Ambrose beats Barrett at Fastlane (as Loss said, I believe, it was pretty clear in January that the IC title win at WM was Ambrose's until they realized that they'd need to give DB something to do) to take the IC title, and Rollins is just too petty to let him have it. The gimmick makes up for the failures of the HIAC match that I can't undo, and it's just two guys who have no regard for their physical well-being trapped in a cage together trying to kill each other. You can't beat Magnum-Tully, and I wouldn't even try. That was about personal hatred and masculinity fought between two guys who just hated each other. This is about betrayal and brotherhood and catharsis (and it's an "I Quit" because being able to have the mic to scream at each other enhances the personal drama, any referencing of one of the greatest matches in wrestling history is just a reference). Just two turntables and a microphone, no referee to stop the match in the unlikely event that someone might bleed.
9) If I have to have an overbooked clusterfuck where all of the build is centered on shoot aspects that desperately tries to skirt actually talking about them featuring an Authority member, I'm going to take Stephanie every day. Instead of alter kaker DX vs. alter kaker nWo, we can have the sad Authority cuckolds brawl with the many on-screen loves of April Mendez and Ronda Rousey whomping Triple H in a situation that actually matters.
10) The match that we actually saw wasn't officially Lesnar-Reigns; it was Lesnar-Reigns-Rollins. I'd like to see how that Lesnar-Reigns story might have actually ended.
