They missed the boat back in 2008 by not making Edge vs Taker at Mania 24 a streak vs streak match. Edge was 5-0 heading into Mania 23 the year before. Then he got shuffled into the multi-man, car-wreck Money in the Bank ladder match at Mania 23 for no good reason. I think he was injured at the time, so he just did one spot then got taken out of the match. Had they just not had him lose they could have easily done the streak vs streak gimmick for the Taker match.

They did the same thing again at Mania 24 by having John Cena’s 4-0 winning streak come to an end in a triple threat match in the mid-card of the event. This despite Cena being the returning babyface looking to reclaim the world title he was never defeated for.

Point being they could very easily have then done Cena vs Taker, streak vs streak, the following year, in Texas, for Mania 25. Now THAT would have had the most dramatic near-falls imaginable, as it would have been very believable that WWE would simply transition the streak gimmick to Cena.

He’s never been known as a great promo guy but Goldberg did a great job with his return promo last night.

Your probable WrestleMania 33 card:

Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar for the Universal title (no, it is not now 2004 again)

The Undertaker vs Roman Reigns

Bray Wyatt vs Randy Orton for the WWE title

Chris Jericho vs Kevin Owens for the United States title

The Big Show vs Shaquille O’Neal (yep)

John Cena & Nikki Bella vs The Miz & Maryse

Charlotte vs Bayley vs Nia Jax vs Sasha Banks for the Raw Women’s title

AJ Styles vs Shane McMahon

Triple H vs Seth Rollins had been in the works but is now not likely to happen due to Rollins re-injuring his knee. Presumably, Triple H does something involving Samoa Joe or Finn Balor instead.

No word on what Dean Ambrose, the Smackdown women or any of the tag teams might be up to. Presumably they tack on another Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal to get other guys on the show.

How do you figure Lesnar or Goldberg gets the title?

Goldberg is presumably winning it at the Fast Lane show later this month.
