Then at the same time you'd run the risk of having to have Rousey be the one that breaks Charlotte's PPV win streak, and that is something you can't be doing.

Wrestlemania isn't about match quality anyway it's always been about the spectacle so I say bring in Rousey if she's willing and have her face Charlotte, they can do Charlotte vs Bayley going in to Wrestlemania.

I don't see that the two UFC defeats matter, Lesnar came back after a couple of humiliating MMA losses and was still really over and was booked as a bad-ass.

I would have Rousey vs Charlotte then book the Smackdown ladies in a multi-person match.

Not if it's 16-1 because Charlotte lost to Bayley at the Royal Rumble. The streak is still better than Rousey's 12-2 or whatever it is.

Quote It was reported earlier this week that WWE wants to go in a different direction for WrestleMania 33, as several changes were made to the card. The most shocking change was canceling the John Cena vs. Undertaker match, which was supposed to be for the WWE Championship.

Dave Meltzer said on Twitter that the reason the company made the chance is because Vince McMahon wants to this year’s WrestleMania to also be about the long-term direction of the company instead of just the short-term


This is good news, obviously with it being Wrestlemania you expect a couple of big marquee matches featuring part-time special attraction talents but far more emphasis should be on the full-time roster and it's the full-timers that should take centre stage with plans in place to further their storylines beyond Wrestlemania when the part-timers head for the hills.

I did hear a rumour as well that the planned Triple H vs Seth Rollins match may also have been canned and instead they may go with Finn Balor vs Rollins. I would be happy with this, maybe have the Rollins vs Tripper match at Fastlane, a lower key show that would benefit from having Triple H wrestling on it.

Goldberg vs Lesnar looks set for Wrestlemania and The Undertaker will make his once a year appearance but otherwise focus on the guys that are here all year round.

If that's the case they need to drag AJ/Cena out until Mania then. It can be done of course but for Smackdown, they'll need AJ to main event and who better to do it with than Cena if Taker is tied up....unless of course they're going AJ vs Taker, and having Cena do the job for Baron Corbin.

Well if WWE are serious about letting the full timers shine at Wrestlemania they should book AJ vs Samoa Joe or perhaps have Cena put Joe over and have AJ wrestle someone else in a title match, Ziggler perhaps?

I hate getting these types of reports because there is nothing to suggest that it's anything more than speculation. If it comes true, cool, but the results from the Royal Rumble will really prove how accurate all this shit is.

But assuming that this report is 100% accurate, then it's good that John Cena vs The Undertaker for the championship isn't happening. However, I still think Cena vs The Undertaker is the best match up for The Undertaker. It doesn't need the championship, but it'd still be the best way to provide a marquee match and have a great match besides. 

Then again, I go back to the fact that I seriously doubt that this report is accurate. Why? Because at least three to four of the top spots at this year's show will be filled by: John Cena, Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, and Goldberg. What precisely is long-term about that? Unless all four of those guys are in the undercard. If one was being honest with themselves, would they REALLY say that that's ever going to happen?

I keep hearing that Goldberg/Lesnar is going to close the show, but I can't seriously see that happening. Not unless they throw out the title stip for the rumble and Lesnar wins the thing claiming the Main Event spot and challenging Goldberg.

As for the titles, I think the WWE Championship or the Universal Championship should have one long term champion going in. I'd prefer two but beggars and choosers and whatnot.

Don't forget Triple H has one of the "main event" spots.

I don't think any of these guys should be facing each other TBH.

Long term, Triple H needs to job to Seth Rollins, Goldberg should pass the torch to Roman Reigns, Lesnar should job to Samoa Joe, Taker can work a match with The Demon Finn Balor, and Cena should make history and win the title from AJ styles to tie Ric Flair's record.

Goldberg vs Lesnar has already had it's best possible moment at the Survivor Series.

Cena vs Taker is just... /sigh why does anyone want to see it? What do these guys have to do with one another anymore? There's no reason for them to work together, really, who cares that they've never had a wrestlemania match? I sure as hell don't.

If we're going to end up having another fucking 6 hour wrestlemania then these guys should really not be pairing up together but rather stacking the card with a number of up and coming stars of the future and making the new guys look good.

Thing is the part time stars are needed to pull in the casual audience. Do you really think the same number of fans would tune in to see Kevin Owens vs Finn Balor or AJ Styles vs Samoa Joe as the numbers that would watch The Rock vs Brock Lesnar or The Undertaker vs Goldberg?

Fact is Wrestlemania is a once a year spectacle where those big stars are expected to make a rare appearance, the event wouldn't have the same impact without them.

I agree that the full time roster should play a more important role and a member of the core roster should main event the show but Goldberg/Lesnar and The Undertaker vs whoever can still occupy the card just beneath the top match.
