    Who should be on the Wrestlemania card?

    Lets pretend for a second that the card remains exactly as it is. Which wrestler(s) do you feel warrants a place on the Wrestlemania 29 card that hasn't already been booked? And if you were to book them on the card, who would you have them face? And what makes you think they should have a place ahead of others already on the card?

    Re: Who should be on the Wrestlemania card?

    The first guy that comes to mind is Cesaro. For one he is the US champion and has performed brilliantly all year long. He pretty much has earned his spot on the show. Problem is with Miz taken by Barrett there isn't much guys for him to face. Jericho would have been a nice opponent for him. Aside from them I honestly can't think of much guys left that he could have a decent match with. R-Truth? Kofi? At best.

    Outside of him I can't think of much guys. As mentioned someone like Kofi wouldn't be the worst choice in the world but not in a one on one. Possibly in a triple threat for the US or IC title. Possibly a divas match although I wouldn't mind seeing AJ & Katilyn join the Hell No/Langston & Ziggler match and making it a winner takes all sort of match.

    Re: Who should be on the Wrestlemania card?

    Definately Cesaro. You could slot him into the Jericho/Fandango fued and make it a triple-threat for the US title. Or elbow out Fandango entirely, have it Cesaro vs Jericho one-on-one. Course, there's always the option of Cesaro vs Mid-Card Man, Kofi Kingston, if you don't want to erase Fandango from Mania.

    Unfortunately, chances are the only way we'll be seeing the US Champon at Mania is with either a throw-away backstage segment or a pre-show battle royal.

    obviously cesaro, I would've taken fandango out and have him set up a feud with Jericho, I really think it would've worked with some good build and there would be no denying the match quality, but I'm ok with fandango v Jericho

    Christian. Shoulda had him taken over for that poor excuse of a wrestler/entertainer Swagger after his idiotic arrest.

    Either that, or you could have be revealed as the leader of the Shield. It would shock everyone, considering people think Orton is a lock to turn heel soon and maybe be the leader. He could build up the angle that he never got the support from WWE that he wanted or should have gotten and that he believes in justice like The Shield. It would also prove that he's a leader like Edge and that he's no longer second fiddle to anyone. If they actually did that, it would no doubt work and would probably be the best thing about all of Wrestlemania.

    Re: Who should be on the Wrestlemania card?

    I think if any one deseves to be on the wrestlemania card... it's these men.

    Heath Slater: has been one of the better acts. I do say acts... not wrestlers. He is funny and I love to watch him in the ring. Since Wrestlemania 28 he has...
    - Been in an amazingly funny comedy act with the legends.
    - Got many legends over.
    - Became the leader of a stable.
    - Went on a winning streak in 3MB
    - Made The Miz turn face.
    - Made Alberto Del Rio turn face.
    - Made Ricardo Rodrigious turn face.
    - Brought back the Brooklyn Brawler.
    - Defeated Sheamus in an Over the top rope challenge.
    - Lasted over 15 minutes in the Royal Rumble Match.
    - Eliminated the Giant Brodus Clay in the Royal Rumble Match.

    Or if not, Kofi Kingston: Since Wrestlemania 28 Kofi Kingston has...
    - Became WWE Tag Team Champion with R Truth
    - Became WWE Intercontinetal Champion
    - Part of Team Foley at Survivor Series
    - Survived in Team Foley for over 9 minutes.
    - Lasted over 20 minutes in the Royal Rumble.
    - Eliminated the Giant Tensai in the Royal Rumble.
    - Eliminated Darren Young in the Royal Rumble.
    - Had major highlight in Royal Rumble match up.

    Or... Last but not least... Antonio Cesaro who has...
    - Won his try out match with the WWE.
    - Went undefeated in Tag Team Action until July 3rd.
    - Scored back to back wins against the United States Champion.
    - Went undefeated in Singles Action until Christian pinned him.
    - Won his first title.
    - Became the United States Champion.
    - Won his first ever title match.
    - Stayed in the Royal Rumble match for over 7 minutes.
    Just him being champion should atleast get him on the pre-show...

    Christian's hurt and Fandango gets more heat than Cesaro.

    He was cleared to wrestle before Henry was.

    You sure? I'm near positive he had more complications.

    But if not, I agree, Cesaro/Christian could have been fantastic.

    Yeah, he was cleared in late mid-late January. That's why everyone was speculating/predicting he'd return in the Rumble. Then Meltzer reported that he'd been cleared just after that.

    Christian would be an epic choice for Wrestlemania as long as he actually won his match. I didn't say him because I thought he was still injured.

    Christian has been fit to wrestle for months(well before January), he took the time off to clear up nagging injuries(similar to what the majority of the roster have)

    I'm sure something is up with Christian, otherwise I'd assume he would have returned by now. I think the Mania card is fine as-is. They clearly think more highly of Barrett & Fandango than Cesaro at the moment (rightfully so). I think/assume they would do Cesaro vs. Kofi in a lumberjack match on the pre-show.

    Cesaro shouldn't just be on the card, he should be having a somewhat long match.

    Huh that makes sense then. Otherwise it would be pretty damn strange for the company to have him and not utilize him. Still he could make an appearance at Mania. Doubt in a match but possibly in a backstage promo or something.

    There's probably already three matches that will go like 7 minutes or less. He shouldn't be having a long match at Wrestlemania, we don't need the air being sucked out of an entire stadium.

    If they really thought highly of Barrett he'd be defending the IC title on the Main card and not the Youtube Pre Show this year.


    For me the answer is obviously Cesaro he's the US champ and that title(and IC title) should both be represented on the main card at WM every year. It's Complete Bullshit that we are gonna have to sit through that god awful 8 person intergender Tag Match and Henry vs Goldberrrrrr I mean Ryback(Honest Mistake) but the IC title can only be shown on the Youtube Pre show and the US champ doesn't get a match at all.

    Yeah well I guess they aren't extremely high on Barrett either, but highER than Cesaro, considering Cesaro either won't be on the show period, or he'll be in some sort of pre pre-show match.

    Re: Who should be on the Wrestlemania card?

    They did on Raw what should have been booked for Mania, and that is Jericho vs Cesaro, which was and would be better then Jericho vs Fandango. (Just not interested in Fawndawngooooooooo) I honestly also think that Ziggler should have been booked in a higher profile singles match, rather then in a tag match. Nobody seems interested in the slightest in Swagger/Del Rio, myself included.

    Also like how Cesaro will likely not be on Mania, but the Blahdactyls will be. At least Cesaro would provide a good match, instead of seeing a lame "comedy" match.
    SWEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!
