    What would I book? And it's not like it's going to happen anytime soon, but I feel like as somebody who goes there at least once every year, Honolulu, Hawaii is a place that has that group of wrestling fans that are isolated and appear to be overlooked by WWE. Very rarely does WWE go to Hawaii, and when they do, it's just as big of a deal, if not bigger, as when they go to Madison Square Garden. And the next time they go do a show there (if ever again), I think it would have to be a Network special. And my card would be....

    - The New Day vs Prime Time Players vs The Dudleys vs The Hardys in a TLC Match

    - Cesaro vs Jericho (this could be a fun match but could be hard because the fans would need someone to root for)

    - Bayley vs Nikki Bella (I actually think this could be good if WWE cares enough to book it correctly)

    - Cosmic Wasteland (Stardust, Konnor and Viktor), Fandango and Heath Slater vs Brock Lesnar (so the people get the thrill of seeing Lesnar crush a bunch of guys) which is followed by a Paul Heyman promo because obviously the Hawaiian crowd would dig that

    - Kevin Owens vs Daniel Bryan

    - Finn Balor vs Seth Rollins

    - Dean Ambrose, The Usos and Roman Reigns vs The Wyatt Family (Bray Wyatt, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan and Braun Strowman)

    - Samoa Joe vs John Cena

    And this is me assuming that everyone I listed that is in NXT will be called up by then and that The Hardys will be back by then.

  2. Samoa Joe vs John Cena
    The New Day vs Prime Time Players vs The Dudleys vs The Hardys in a TLC Match

    These 2 sound really interesting.
  3. I never thought about John Cena vs Samoa Joe before. Good call
  4. Nice card!

    KO vs DB and Bálor vs Rollins, tho! :yay:
  5. Not a match card, but I'd love to see WWE do a Network original that is basically their own version of ESPN's First Take, where you have two guys with a female moderator (could easily be Renee Young) discussing and arguing about current happenings within the WWE world. Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith have great voices and great chemistry with one another and watching them bicker about different assorted topics is fun to watch. The problem is, unless they go and find guys as charismatic as those two, we'd be stuck listening to people like Tom Phillips and Bryan Saxton instead, which would be quite boring to listen to, but it's still an appealing idea to me regardless.

  6. This is where we need a Bret Hart. Is he bitter? There's really no question. Does he know what constitutes a wrestling match? I'd say he does.
    Lance Storm is less dry pan than Hart. He isn't a mark and couldn't care less if listeners popped for him or not. He's a smart fella.
    Jim Cornette would be a great voice for either of those two men to play off of. He is completely insane but very sensible.
    Storm/Cornette would be my choice. Other voices might be Dutch Mantel, but he has the unfortunate distinction of being under a full time contract.

    Edit: I don't trust WWE. Anything plastered with a WWE logo will be serving the WWE empire. Any debate would be even worse than ESPN, because WWE micromanages its corporation to absolute to incredibly ridiculous proportions. ESPN is just as greedy, yet they will fall on a knife because their central audience aren't wimpy people with insecurity complexes.
  7. If they hired JR again, he'd be a great fit for this show as well, especially if you watch him on some of those Legend Of Wrestling roundtable discussions.

  8. Not a bad card, I'd be more interested in that than most of the PPV/special cards that have taken place so far this year.
