In 2007, WrestleMania returned to a stadium to host over 80,000 fans in Detroit's Ford Field. It wasn't far off of the Pontiac Silverdome's indoor attendance record 20 years earlier. But the card that WWE created for their enormous audience was extremely disappointing in my view. Would you agree? Here's the results of WrestleMania XXIII, today's installment of my "Rewriting WrestleMania" series. April 1, 2007 Ford Field (Detroit, MI) 1. (Dark) Lumberjack Tag Team Match: Ric Flair and Carlito def. Gregory Helms and Carlito 2. Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Mr. Kennedy def. CM Punk, Edge, Randy Orton, Jeff Hardy, Matt Hardy, King Booker, and Finlay 3. The Great Khali def. Kane 4. United States Championship: Chris Benoit (c) def. MVP to retain. 5. World Heavyweight Championship: The Undertaker def. Batista (c) to become new champion. 6. 8-Man Tag Team Match: The ECW Originals: RVD, Sabu, Tommy Dreamer, and The Sandman def. The New Breed: Elijah Burke, Marcus Cor Von, Matt Striker, and Kevin Thor w/ Ariel 7. Hair vs Hair Match (w/ Stone Cold Steve Austin as special guest referee): Bobby Lashley w/ Donald Trump def. Umaga w/ Mr. McMahon and Armando Alejandro Estrada 8. Women's Championship Lumberjill Match: Melina (c) def. Ashley to retain. 1. WWE Championship: John Cena (c) def. Shawn Michaels to retain. *Rewriting WrestleMania XXIII* 1. Intercontinental Championship: CM Punk def. Johnny Nitro (c) One of the many mistakes of booking WM23 was not putting the IC Title on the line. Umaga was the champion at the time and was involved in the hair match with Lashley. I'd have Johnny Nitro aka John Morrison (who was the last heel besides Umaga to hold the title) go into Mania as champ and drop it to CM Punk in both men's first WrestleMania debut. 2. Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Jeff Hardy def. Kennedy, Matt Hardy, Shelton Benjamin, Carlito, MVP, Finlay, and Kane Mr. Kennedy was such a bad choice to win the briefcase in hindsight. It wasn't long before Jeff Hardy went on to compete for the World Title anyway, so why not have him win here? He was always a fan favorite and I'm sure it would've gotten a great pop. I'd change quite a few of the participants. Benjamin wasn't involved in WM23 at all, except as a lumberjack in the dark match. Randy Orton and Edge were already well established and didn't need the briefcase. Kane was in an awful match with The Great Khali. Carlito? In the dark match. The match was entertaining, it always is no matter who's in it, but it could have been so much better. 3. WWE Tag Team Championship Triple Threat: London & Kendrick (c) def. Deuce & Domino and Cryme Tyme I don't have much to say except this would be better than not putting the titles on the line at all. The WWE tag champions at the time were...Cena and Michaels? 4. United States Championship: RVD def. Chris Benoit (c) I think this could have been a great match in Benoit's final WrestleMania. His match against MVP was a bit of a letdown in my opinion. I think RVD in an 8-man tag was definitely the wrong way to go. I certainly wasn't interested in "The New Breed" one bit. 5. Hair vs. Hair Match: (Stone Cold Steve Austin as special referee) Bobby Lashley w/ Donald Trump def. Umaga w/ Mr. McMahon I'd keep the result the same, but the match should have been shorter to get right to what everyone wanted to see: Vince McMahon getting his head shaved. 6. World Heavyweight Championship: Edge def. Batista (c) Taker and Batista wasn't the worst call in the world, but Taker didn't need the World Title. Besides, I had him beat Kurt Angle for it in my WM22 rewrite. I'd have Edge win it instead of competing in the MITB match. 7. The Undertaker def. Randy Orton I'm simply moving their WM20 match back 3 years, since I've had different opponents for them due to the timing of careers and contracts. Orton was still the legend killer and the timing would have still been perfect. Maybe even better with Orton having been established as a former World Champion. 8. King Booker w/ Queen Sharmell def. Ric Flair Putting Ric Flair in the dark match is a disgrace if you ask me. If anything, I'd put the tag title match as the dark match/pre-show match. Flair loses due to cheating tactics by Booker and Sharmell, outdirty-ing the dirtiest player in the game in a battle of WCW greats. 9. Women's Championship: Melina (c) def. Mickie James 2 of the best women wrestlers WWE had to offer at the time. I don't even remember Ashley, other than she was a cookie-cutter diva. 10. WWE Championship: Shawn Michaels def. John Cena (c) I don't necessarily disagree with the main event, but definitely disagree with the outcome. It was the wrong call and they should have crowned Shawn WWE champ for the first time in 9 years. Yes, he had been World Champion recently, but even then he didn't wear the gold at Mania. You could really feel the wind be let out of the crowd's sails in another disappointing match. Having Shawn tap out was what really got me. I could understand if he was a heel at the time, but he wasn't. An overall card that lacked in substance had an equally disappointing finish. 80,000 fans and this is the best they could do for them? Embarrassing. Feel free to comment and/or post your WMXXIII rewrite.
