With WrestleMania 32 over, many believe that WWE is just going to move on to planning for Payback in May and then the pay-per-view events that follow it. While some of that may be true, there is also the long-term planning starting to be put in place. Yes, WrestleMania 33 is a little under a year away, but some ideas are already in the works and WWE is teasing some huge moments for the event such as a fun main event and a big match for The Undertaker.
The WWE website released a video on Wednesday that is pretty much nothing more than a time-filler, but it does tease a few things they want to see at WrestleMania 33 next year in Orlando. While it’s true that none of this may happen, it is interesting to see what the editors want to see happen.
Dean Ambrose in the main event for the WWE World Heavyweight Title
At WrestleMania 32, Seth Rollins won the WWE World Heavyweight Title. A WrestleMania 32, it was Roman Reigns who took home the belt in the main event. Now, there is just one member of The Shield who has yet to win the big one and that’s Dean Ambrose.
Shaquille O’Neal vs. Big Show
At WrestleMania 32, Shaw made his in-ring debut for WWE in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal and faced off with Big Show. Since then, the two giants have traded jabs at each other and want a match next year. There’s really no better place to have it than the place that Shaq started his NBA career in with the Magic.
Shinsuke Nakamura in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
He made his company debut at NXT Takeover: Dallas and defeated Sami Zayn in an absolutely amazing match. All in due time, Shinsuke Nakamura is going to be called up to the main roster and make a huge impact in WWE, but when?
When that happens is up in the air, but it could be before WrestleMania 33, and WWE editors would love to see him win the big battle royal.
John Cena vs. The Undertaker
There are rumors that The Undertaker is not going to make it to another WrestleMania and that his retirement is imminent. No one knows exactly when that is going to happen, and “The Deadman” very well could perform in Orlando for the big event next year.
After all, he did defeat Shane McMahon inside Hell in a Cell to win the right to appear at another one. WWE’s original plans for this year was for The Undertaker to face John Cena in a “Legend vs. Legend” match, but Cena’s injury took him out of things and WWE went to secondary plans.
Maybe WWE will be able to finally get that match set up and happen. It could also end up being the final match for The Undertaker, and one that would send him out in a big way. They haven’t faced each other in 10 years and never at WrestleMania.
WWE Women’s Championship Fatal 4-Way Between The Four Horsewomen
This year’s WWE Women’s Championship match was one for the ages, but WWE editors do feel it could be made slightly better. Adding in former NXT Women’s Champion Bayley would pit the Four Horsewomen against one another on the biggest stages ever and for the ultimate prize.
Who wouldn’t want to see Charlotte vs. Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks vs. Bayley for the title?
Bill Goldberg returns and faces Roman Reigns
There were months and months of rumors before WrestleMania 32 that Bill Goldberg would return, be signed, and have a match at the event. Well, that didn’t end up happening and Goldberg even opened up after it was over and said he didn’t want to spoil things for everyone, but he hadn’t signed with WWE.
Now, is WWE saying they want him back and want him to face Roman Reigns? They do cite the return and success of Brock Lesnar, so anything is possible.
It’s not known what is going to happen at WrestleMania 33 in Orlando even though some plans are likely already being worked out. Many changes happened to this year’s event, and some in just the week or two leading up to it. By the time it rolls around next year, The Undertaker could retire and Dean Ambrose could win it all, or more injuries could take out main event talent, but WWE is going to find a way to make it gigantic.
