In part three of “How Some Jabroni Would’ve Booked the Road to WrestleMania 33″ we take a look at WWE’s flagship show, Raw, which also had a WWE Network Special before “The Greatest Spectacle in Sports Entertainment.” A few weeks after Elimination Chamber, the 2017 edition of Fastlane took place on March 5th which would have Goldberg facing the WWE Universal Champion Kevin Owens in the main event. Fastlane was a very forgettable event with there being a few good matches, which included the Match of the Night from Neville and Jack Gallagher.
As promised I’m back with part two of “How Some Jabroni Would’ve Booked the Road to WrestleMania 33.” Now that we’re in some kind of alternate universe (Earth 2 for those comic book fans) where AJ Styles is still WWE Champion, a Raw superstar has won the 2017 Royal Rumble (Chris Jericho you stupid idiot), and there is no #1 contender for Smackdown’s top prize on the grandest stage of them all. I’m now taking a look at the 2017 Elimination Chamber event.
Being in the month of March could only mean that we’re on the road to WrestleMania. With WrestleMania 33 being a little under a month away, we’re seeing a lot of changes in the WWE. Bray Wyatt is now WWE Champion, John Cena has tied Ric Flair’s record of being a 16 time World Champion, and Goldberg (never thought I would say this in the year 2017) is now WWE Universal Champion.
There’s a lot of questionable booking going into this year’s show of shows, like are we really going to see Goldberg vs Lesnar III for the Universal Championship, or why is John Cena and the Miz facing each other in a mixed tag team match. Many people think they could do a better job at booking these shows and creating these matches. I’m going to do just that in this article, book the matches that I think should happen at “The Grandest Stage of Them All” WrestleMania 33. I’m not just gonna fantasy book WrestleMania 33 but the matches on the road to WrestleMania. But what do I know…I’m just some internet jabroni.
We’re a week removed from the biggest show of the year, the show of shows, WrestleMania. Wither you loved it or hated it, people are still talking about it. I myself found it neither bad nor great, but entertaining. Given the circumstances with all the injures on the main roster, WWE did a good job as the show must go on. But could they have done a better job?
There were a lot of questionable booking going into this year’s Mania, like why isn’t the Intercontinental Championship match a singles match or why is Roman Reigns facing someone that is supposed to be a heel but is way over than he is. Many people think they could do a better job at booking these shows and creating these matches. I’m gonna do just that in this article, book the matches that I think should’ve happened at WrestleMania 32. But what do I know…I’m just some internet jabroni.
WrestleMania weekend is one of the biggest weekend’s in professional wrestling. Fans from around the world come to see “The Grand Daddy of Them All.” But WWE isn’t the only company putting on shows this weekend in Dallas. The WWN Live family is putting on a set of shows (which can be seen on WWNLive.com), along with independent wrestling promotions such as Ring of Honor and the annual WrestleCon event. Here’s a list of the events happening this weekend:
This month I signed up for Pro Wrestling Crate, the monthly subscription box founded by the guys behind Top Rope Tuesday. Every month has a different theme, with a shirt and other collectibles pertaining to that theme. With March’s theme being “Mania” and with two shirts being in every crate, I couldn’t pass up this month’s crate.
Intensity, Integrity, and Intelligence: The Kurt Angle Story
The third on my list of DVDs that should be released by WWE is a documentary of the only Olympic gold medalist in professional wrestling, Kurt Angle. Since his first match in 1999, Kurt Angle has proved that he is the best pure athlete that has ever stepped into a 20×20 ring. He earned the moniker, the most celebrated athlete in WW(F/E) history by having classic feuds with the Rock, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Brock Lesnar, Shawn Michaels, and the Undertaker, just to name a few. He is a 6 time World Champion, United States Champion, Intercontinental Champion, European Champion and Tag Team Champion, and there’s no doubt he’s a future Hall of Famer. IT’S TRUE, IT’S TRUE.
The DVD would document Angle’s near 7 year career in WW(F/E), from his debut match at Survivor Series 1999 with Shawn Stasiak to feuding with the “The Phenom” The Undertaker towards the end of his career with WWE in 2006.
*Due to the tragic events tat occurred in 2007, there are no Chris Benoit matches listed. It is unfortunate that I had to leave out some classic matches from this match list.
*Note: Not all videos are great quality or full matches. If you would like to see these matches in full (or in better quality), I would suggest watching them on the WWE Network (for only $9.99)
