Wrestlemania 21 Discussion Thread

The latest talk regarding WrestleMania 21 is Triple H defending the World Heavyweight Title against Batista. There were also plans for a "legend vs. legend killer" interbrand match with Undertaker vs. Randy Orton. We'll see if that actually happens though.
Courtesy of Wrestlezone. Man, color me surprised if they actually are considering this and going with it. I wasn't entertaining the idea that Bastita could realistically get the main event at Wrestlemania at all. I'd be really excited and get the PPV if this is true. And Orton vs. Undertaker? That's an idea I don't even think any of us have thrown out here yet. It would be interesting, I think. Although they usually work interbrand matches very poorly. Only way those can work in my mind is if both guys commit to doing both Raw and Smackdown during the course of their fued. Otherwise there's just no quality build-up.

I could see them going with an Orton-Angle match. That might be interesting.
Ultimately I think I'd like to see Batista v HHH at WM, just not for the title. I like Batista but he's not ready. That's never stopped WWE before.

Exactly, as long as Orten put up a fight, it wouldn't hurt him to lose.
Grand Admiral Exodus:
In the past, people used to get over just by having a huge match w/ a superstar even if they lost. I don't think it'd be a huge problem, especially if Orton gets a fresh start on Smackdown post-WM21.

I'd prefer to see any of those matches over Orton/Taker at the moment, too, except maybe Orton/Cena. I'd rather have them save that for down the road at some point once they both have some more time in the spotlight and some more experience. That could be an amazing feud if done properly some day.
3 & 6 years to go...:
Am I the only one that doesn't want to see Orton vs. Undertaker? I'd rather see Orton vs. Cena. Or, how about Undertaker vs. Snitsky? Like, they work some angle where Snitsky really 'destroys' Kane, and Undertaker becomes involved, somehow? I don't know.

Other than a Hall of Fame induction, which is unlikely beacuse I don't think Hogans wrestling days (whether they be mainstream or indy) aren't over just yet, I can't think of all that much stuff that I'd rather see him do...or Orton, for that matter, since he's facing Triple H this month right before WM21. He's faced him, he's faced Flair, so in terms of heels just what is left for him? Not much. I like the Hogan/Orton idea that I just threw out there...what do you guys think?
