Might as well have a one-stop shop for everyone's great ideas...

Like my idea to have WWE repackage Swagger into a dancing goof, then hire Maroon 5 to play at 'Mania, changing one of their hits to "I've Got the Moves Like Swagger".

After being eliminated by Bryan in the Rumble, losing as pod-flller in the Chamber, and scoring a clean win over Alberto Del Rio in the third match at Mania to a lukewarm reaction, Batista begins to show signs of bitterness. He starts to whine more and throw tantrums after losses to higher-ranked guys, culminating in a worked shoot segment where he confronts HHH about his "guaranteed title." HHH gives in by stripping Ambrose of the US title (which he will not have defended on tv in over 6 months at that point) and handing it to Batista. Batista then resumes his spring 2010 heel character in the midcard, defeating the likes of Ziggler, Xavier Woods, and other less likable faces. This continues until Summer Slam when he puts over either Big E. Langston in a unification match or freshly-turned Roman Reigns. The US title then means something again for another couple months before it is inevitably forgotten.

The Undertaker, sick of facing mere mortals at Wrestlemania, challenges the spirit realm, and must defeat the ghost brain of Chris Benoit inside the skeleton of Andre the Giant. This abominable creature is managed by Brad Maddox, who has been possessed by the ghost of Playboy Gary Hart. Taker wins when he goes on a quest for an amulet that allows him to turn in to a dragon.

.......that's not what you guys meant by Fantasy, was it. My B.

With the concerns regarding being able to get Bo Dallas over in WWE since his current character may be hard to translate without a push, I submit to you...

 

Bo Dallas, Youth Minister

 

Kids today.  Am I right?  They really just don't the right attitude.  They don't respect their elders! They watch the pornography!  They don't have jobs!  What the kids today really lack is a hero.  Someone who can guide them down the right path, but with the cool hip lingo the kids understand and respond to.  Who bettah than Kanyo... Bo Dallas?  With his winning smile and ability to play a guitar (maybe?  hell if I know), this cool cat is here to make your kids UnBOlievable!

 

Bonus if he rides a bike to the ring in black pants, a tie and a bike helmet.

 

Double secret bonus if he's the youth minister of the Wyatt Family,

Mick Foley bringing in that 7+ foot Indian guy WWE is reportedly training in a hood and chains as his way to end the Undertaker's streak.  Foley screaming about how he never got his Wrestlemania moment and never will because of the cumulative effects of the beatings Foley has suffered at the hands of Taker would be the best promos on WWE TV in years.  I mean, it would be a terrible WM match, but it would give UT an easier one that having to work a lengthy **** workrate classic and save him for a bigger match the next year.

yeah, it's kinda surprising that they've never had a Youth Minister gimmick. But then again, the youth minister would need a few things

 

a] he would need to be balding, and probably under 35

b] powerpoint slides on the Titantron during his promos highlighting his points

 

considering those elements.. Nova's Simon Dean gimmick could have easily been a Youth Minister gimmick too.

Kinda conservative, but ever since I heard about Del Rio and Drew Mac getting into that bar fight I've wanted to see them as a team. Los Hooligans or something. Miz and Ryder should also be a tag team of horrible social media-obsessed fame-hungry douchebags.

To do that you need to break up 3MB and to do that you need a Yoko Ono.  And god damned if 3MB doesn't need a Yoko Ono. 

 

Throw Sasha Banks in a turtle neck and glasses today!

 

Have her change Heath Slater's taste in 'music'.

 

Have Drew tell Heath that 'it used to be about the music man'!

 

Have Heath tell Drew to 'Slag Off!'

 

I said slag off!

 

3MB Breaks up :(

 

Jinder releases 'Jinder' and tears the house down at WrestleMania with PitBull! 

 

It's going down, I'm yelling Jinder!

You better move, you better dance

Let's make a match you won't remember

I'll be the one you wont' forget!

 

Wooooah (Jinder), Woooah (Jinder), Woooah (it's going down)

Wooooah (Jinder), Woooah (Jinder), Woooah (it's going down)

 

(An actually appropriate reference to PitBull!  I should get a internet cookie)

in the spirit of the impending tedious Sting fantasy booking. An idea.

 

Week 1:

RAW is about to end. Lights go out. Lights go back on and Sting drops someone with the Scorpion Death Drop. Lights go out. Back on, no Sting. Show over. Then the talk of "Was that who we thought it was?" on SD/other shows, leading into the next RAW and the next brief but longer appearance. And so on.

 

They'd probably have him in a boring feud with someone in the Authority to start. So we'd get Sting v. Randy Orton at Wrestlemania and Sting jawing with Stephanie.

 

But yeah, they'd probably have to start Sting as a good guy and turn somebody to face him down the road. Or just turn Cena and have him face Sting.

Watching some old 94 PPVs, and completely forgot that if Luger had lost the coin toss, he would have wrestled Crush also. 

 

With hindsight being 20/20, with Hennig's back fucking up and making his heel turn pointless, Savage leaving because he wasn't used as an in-ring performer anymore, Crush being gone after Mania, and the Bret/Owen program really taking off, would have loved to have seen Savage turn heel on Luger here for denying him his chance at getting his hands on Crush instead.

 

Bret gets his big moment of redemption, you still do the Owen stare down in the aisle building up to Summerslam. (Only issue is Owen doesn't get his win over Bret)

 

Savage and Luger do something rather than both being essentially redundant after Mania 10.

 

Maybe even void the Backlund heel turn and build Savage up to Bret at Survivor Series, then Nash beats him at the Garden in 10 seconds. Gives the Diesel face turn a lot more momentum than what it had.

I want to see someone do a bass fishing gimmick. He comes out on a giant boat, wears a shirt covered with sponsors, takes forever before matches start because he has to find the right spot, and his finisher is a released powerbomb called the Catch and Release.

someone call Barry Darsow. Big Mouth Barry Darsow = money

 

then he can have a big blowoff match on a ring in the middle of a lake where the only way to win the match is to throw your opponent in the water

 

Catch and release could just be the Billy Kidman facebuster "you can't powerbomb Kidman" powerbomb counter.

Just totally random...could Steve Blackman have been more successful if he was half of a badass shooter tag team in 98-99 or so? Have him managed by a guy doing a Dana White style hype man gimmick, and beating asses with Dan Severn or something. Maybe it just seems cooler in my head.

Now that the New Age Outlaws are officially back and champs again, as bad guys [but not conclusively in or out of the storyline], I just want to see WWE do the Vince-esque move to make them heels of the NAO being put in a match with HHH and a mystery partner, which becomes HBK- then the New Age Outlaws do a fingerpoke of doom for DX. It's simple, but the Vince-esque ways would make it golden:

 

There "was" the angle in TNA where VKM put up one million dollars for a match against D-Generation X back in 2006. Dixie Carter famously put $1 million in reserve, expecting DX would actually collect it.

 

The only issues there- during the challenge:

 

-VKM NEVER SAID that it had to take place in a TNA ring. On the contrary, they openly said that it could take place in a TNA or a WWE ring- in their words, "your house, our house, or an outhouse". Likewise, they never said that they had to be called VKM in that match- the only rules were that those two had to fight HBK/HHH in a match.

 

-VKM's challenge had NO time limit mentioned in the promo- they never mentioned a date when that challenge expired. 

 

Meaning- if WWE runs a random "DX vs. New Age Outlaws" fingerpoke one week, then WWE can legally go to TNA and say "You told us if DX fought these two men, you'd pay $1 million. We made the match- that will be one million dollars", and legally TNA would HAVE to pay up.

Here is your fantasy booking challenge:

Assume that Batista has a contract clause stipulating that he walks out of Wrestlemania with the title. Who should he face and how should he get there to make the Wrestlemania match the most palatable experience possible for you?

Daniel Bryan wins the title at Elimination Chamber and drops it to Batista at Wrestlemania thanks to Authority shenanigans. In the build-up to the match, The Authority keeps reminding Batista that he is their chosen guy to be the true face of the WWE and tries to "recruit" him, but Batista (despite the decidedly pro-Bryan audiences) plays the babyface role, telling Triple H he's "been through this with him before", doesn't trust him because of their past, etc. Talks about how much he respects Bryan and wants it to be one-on-one with no distractions at Wrestlemania. In fact, he'll even come out to help Bryan even the odds in a few 3-on-1 Shield/Wyatt vs. Bryan scenarios devised by The Authority.

 

Bryan, all the while, is apprehensive about the whole thing and makes no bones about the fact that he doesn't trust that Batista and Triple H aren't in cahoots (I guess kind of a Summer of Punk reboot, except Batista is Kevin Nash in this scenario, but there will be no mysterious text message involved).

Thats like saying that if you're in a wrestling ring and Brock Lesnar threatens to murder you that you can go to the police and press charges because legally he threatened your life. Didn't Triple H offer something like a million dollars if someone took out somebody for him. It was a rip off of the Race/Flair angle but none the less somebody should have broke the guys leg in the parking lot and said "he said on national tv he'd give me money if he didn't make it to the match" it was Goldberg now that I remember it. Anyway point being its a wrestling show, its entertainment, there was no legal binding paperwork done to it and it would get laughed out of every court room in the world.

So if Daniel Bryan and HHH are going to have a match at Mania, have them set up a stip where if Bryan loses, he's fired... and if he wins, he gets a World title shot and/or Trips has to stay out of his business.

 

They have the match, Bryan wins clean, Trips tapping like crazy to the Yes Lock. Next night on Raw, Bryan's in the ring for a match/promo/whatever and Trips comes out. "I lied. YOU'RE FIRED." Setting the ball in motion for Bryan somehow coming back in time for Extreme Rules in his de facto hometown of Seattle.

 

Here's the tricky part. You have one Raw between that show and the PPV where "the fans protest" by not going to the actual Raw arena- instead they assemble outdoors at a conveniently placed ring and thousands of seats (fuck all y'all, this is my fantasy) and a bunch of wrestlers have matches there out of solidarity to the Yes Movement. This leaves the Authority with an empty TV arena for 3 hours and finally spooks them into giving Bryan "one more match" at the PPV, with a notarized contract that they will stay out of his business once and for all and let him succeed/fail on his own terms.

Batista turns heel in the time between Wrestlemania and now.  Orton drops the belt the chamber to an appropriate face... let us say in this instance Rey Mysterio for the most continuity but Cena would also work.  Bastista wins the belt at Mania (preferable without Authority help because that story line is fucking cooked) and starts dropping the face with multiple powerbombs but who is there to save the day?

 

Duh.

 

Knee that beat Cena.  YES YES YES point point point.
