Default How WWE looks like without the part-timers; plus, the strongest card

Just a little game in order to find out what WWE feels like without all those part-timers. In the part-time list are included:
  • Triple H
  • Brock Lesnar
  • Undertaker
  • John Cena
  • Goldberg
  • Kane
  • Big Show
  • Chris Jericho
  • Shane McMahon
  • Mark Henry
  • Kurt Angle

What's the best card you can come up with without those guys? (or any other former WWE star or celebrity)

Here's mine:

*Pre-Show*

Singles match for the Cruiserweight Championship
Nevile (face) vs Itami(c) (heel)
Quite possibly the two best cruiserweights WWE can have.

Tag Team match for the Smackdown Tag Team Championship
Sheamus & Cesaro (heels) vs Gable & Benjamin(c) (faces)
This could easily end up being the best match of the entire show, but WWE would put this on the pre-show anyways, so would I.

*Main-Show*

8-Man Money In The Bank Ladder match
Braun Strowman vs Bobby Roode vs Sami Zayn vs The Miz vs Rusev vs Adam Cole vs Jason Jordan vs Dolph Ziggler

Singles match for the Smackdown's Women's Championship
Nia Jax(c) (heel) vs Asuka (face)
Keeping Asuka undfeated and also giving Nia a hot streak. Have the two streaks collide and you create a money match.

Singles match; maybe for the IC or the US Championship
Kevin Owens (heel) vs Samoa Joe (face)
A hard hitting match. Exactly what an undercard needs.

Singles match; maybe for the IC or the US Championship
Shinsuke Nakamura (face) vs Bray Wyatt (heel)
This could be a great theatrical match. Both guys are way too charismatic and their weird personalities could create something unique.

Extreme Rules Tag Team match for the RAW Tag Team Championship
New Day(c) (heels) vs The Hardy Boys (faces)
The best tag team of the modern era vs one of the best tag teams of the previous era.

Fatal-4-Way match for the RAW Women's Championship
Sasha Banks(c) (heel) vs Becky Lynch (face) vs Bayley (heel) vs Charlotte (face)
The Four Horsewomen colliding. The match sells itself.

No Holds Barred match
Roman Reigns (face) vs Dean Ambrose (heel)
An Ambrose heel turn on Reigns would surely create a great feud. Explanation coming.

Andre the Giant Battle Royal

Singles match for the Universal Championship
Randy Orton(c) (heel) vs Finn Balor (face)
Orton is great at putting over underdog babyfaces. The Viper vs The Demon King.

Singles match for the WWE Championship
AJ Styles(c) (heel) (w/ The Club) vs Seth Rollins
The build-up begins with Shield vs Club. Then Ambrose turns on Roman and the Shield breaks up, thus leading to Roman vs Ambrose and Rollins fighting the Club alone.

That's my card and I think it is a damn good card. I think it is Wrestlemania worthy, too. It reminds me of WM 21 a little bit. However there was one big problem. I had to niptick that card, which means that in order to have a brand split and this card, WWE would need to make plans months in advance, so that the right rosters can be set in stone. Two "superstar shake-ups" per year instead of one, would be needed if the roster was so thin, instead of one. I think the brand split could survive even without the part-timers, but it would require some damn good writing and interesting TV.

Also, one injury screws the whole card, because frankly, everyone is exactly at the spot he should be, so if that person misses that spot due to injury, then the drawing ability of the card drops a lot. I also had to use the MITB concept, the 4 horsewomen and a Shield angle in order to create interest. But that was the strongest card I could think of.

Does this show WWE can do without the part-timers? No. But they're getting there. Because as you can see, the real problem wouldn't lie in creating one strong card, but it lies in creating 20+ strong cards for the rest of the PPVs. The current PPV format would definately not work. The old one might have, where you used to have RAW and SD PPVs, one per month. Or the format they had from 2007 to 2013, because the roster might not lack depth, but it would definately lack star power. So you wouldn't be able to create RAW only cards or SD only cards.

How would your card look like?

What do you think about the notion of "no part-timers"? Would the brand split work? If yes, how? If not, why?
