Create and Rate Wrestling Dream Card Matches
This is something I used to do a long time ago. Basically, use this thread to create a dream card of matches that you'd love to see happen on one night's show. It can involve any wrestler from any time period. Additionally, you can use this thread to rate/discuss other posters' dream cards.
Here are the rules:
1) You can use any wrestler of any period of their career, any gimmick match, any arena and any city.
2) A wrestler can only be in one match on the card (so, for example, you cannot have Owen Hart and Blue Blazer on the same card).
3) Matches can have happened before (for example, you can put Hogan vs. Piper, if that's your dream card).
4) You must have at least 5 matches on the card, but no more than eight.
5) No titles can be involved.
6) You can explain your matches if you'd like, but not required
I'll go ahead and create one for me, though I'm doing this fairly quickly so I can get the thread posted and thus reserve the right to edit mine later.
Slyfox's Dream Card:
Opener: MITB - Jushin "Thunder" Liger vs. Flyin' Brian Pillman vs. "Y2J" Chris Jericho vs. Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat vs. Big Van Vader vs. "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase
Match #2: Randy Orton vs. Jake 'The Snake' Roberts
Match #3: Tag Match: Steiner Brothers vs. Edge & Christian
Match #4: Rock vs. Dusty Rhodes
Match #5: Wargames: Slyfox's All-Time Favorites (Sting, Bret Hart, John Cena, AJ Styles) vs. The Four Horsemen (Ric Flair, Arn Anderson, Barry Windham, Chris Benoit)
Match #6: Shawn Michaels vs. Randy Savage
Main-Event: Hulk Hogan vs. Steve Austin
#1 - Some of the best workers in modern wrestling history. You have daredevils and power guys, clean cut babyfaces and dastardly heels and guys who have history with each other. I think it would make for a great match.
#2 - Many people will probably jump to "they both are snakes lol", but that really has nothing to do with it. Both men are/were fantastic in the ring (consummate pros) and are great at working an audience, which will be necessary after the previous match.
#3 - Steiners are, in my opinion, the best tag team ever and E&C would make a great matchup for them.
#4 - Two of the most charismatic workers in history, this match would have great storytelling and probably a few laughs along the way.
#5 - Along with Hogan, those four are my favorite wrestlers ever. They also would make a great team vs. the evil Four Horsemen, whose members I chose specifically for what I believe their abilities in this match would be.
#6 - This match would be the bridge between Wargames and the main-event, but features arguably the greatest professional wrestler of all-time (Savage) with one of the best sellers and most charismatic in-ring workers of all time (HBK).
#7 - It's a cliche choice, but a Hogan vs. Austin match needs no explanation.
So there are my off-the-cuff choices. What would yours be? How would you rate my card or the card of other posters?
