This should have happened instead...

Recommended Posts

A simple thread premise that I’ll probably explain badly...which moments in wrestling history did the bookers get wrong, and what should have happened instead?

I’m going to go with Jinder Mahal’s title reign in 2017. There was this odd narrative at the time with people like Triple H, Road Dogg and Sam Roberts praising how great a job Jinder was doing as champion when really this couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m guessing they learned their lesson in the end given that he fell back down to where he was pre-title win very quickly. 

Instead of Mahal winning the title, I think The Miz should have stayed on Smackdown and beaten Orton instead. He was on a red-hot streak as a bad guy at the time and was incredibly entertaining. Miz would have been a phenomenal champion and would surely have prevented Smackdown from having the slump in quality that it had that year. 

What moments in wrestling history would you have done differently?

Wasn't Mahal given the title then because WWE had just signed a massive TV deal in India and were really pushing the Indian market at that time to get the most out of it?

My one would be to have had The Nexus go over Cena at Summerslam 2010.

I think there would have been value in a higher profile use of Kane. 

Amongst the mid 2000 multiple title changes, Kane could have got his hands the Championship and been dominant throughout the rest of the year only to lose the title in the Armageddon cell match via protected means. This could have kept the Mania X7 title plans in place and elevated Kane to proper main event status in the meantime. 

Amongst the invasion storyline, a Big Red Machine being manipulated by Heyman in to doing the Alliance's bidding with his hands on the Big Gold belt could have been a fun sight to see also. 

Instead, I think Kane was already comfortably in to his 'fits up and down the card' role far too quickly. Obviously he wasn't Rock, Austin or Triple H but there was more to be done.

CM Punk should have stayed away during The Summer of Punk, defending his WWE Title on all of the other wrestling shows like he claimed he would do during the pipebomb.

One on one. Weigh in and stare down the night before. Both women screaming in the other’s face as flashbulbs go off.  Fight camp entrances with the Four Horsewomen accompanying each woman to the ring. Ronda taps out.

I always use these threads to say Lex should have got the belt from Yoko at Summerslam 93. Also 123 Kid should've beat IRS at Summerslam 93.

HBK should have beaten Hogan in 2005.

The result made absolutely no difference to anything.

I know, right? Still pisses me off, that one. Made no bloody sense.

Roman’s, “This is my yard, now,” promo after beating The Undertaker at Wrestlemania should’ve been the start of a smug, dickhead heel run. He’d be the biggest thing in the sport now.

Certain I read somewhere that the loss was punishment for some sort of backstage incident. But I totally agree it made no sense at the time.
