Since WM 20 is next year, I was wondering if you people think there will ever be a WM 30. I think it will, but I hope that Vince McMahon doesn't Main Event. I can imagine the top stars will be Brock and Angle, while Nash and HHH are special referees.

There will always be a market for pro wrestling in the States, and Vince and Co. are the only people established enough now to be big in 10 years. They may have to hold it in Key Arena instead of Safeco Field, but I see no reason why WWE won't still be going in 10 years.

As far as the participants...Lesnar maybe, Angle no chance. I'll be surprised if he makes it to 25.
Youth N Asia
It'll be around in 10 years. Main eventers might be guys we've never heard of yet though
LooseCannon25
There's no freakin way Angle will be wrestling at WMXXX........He may be there in a mangerial role or something, but I think he's done wrestling in 3 years.
Choken One
Angle himself said he only has 3-4 years left in him.

Yes, Mania XXX will go down barring some massive meltdown.

I will predict that WWE becomes more International Flavored ala NBA, MLB and It wouldn't shock me if WMXXX occurs in Toyko Japan.

PPV will be non-existant by 2014 because of the amazing Internet Broadband capabilites.
LooseCannon25
It'd be funny if WMXXX was on Closed Circuit TV. Talk about going backwards. The return of CLosed Circuit would be cool.

By then when we watch it at home it'll be like being there because it would be broadcast in High Definition and who knows what type of sound they'll have by then.

Also, If WWE was still racey and controversial in 10 years the name of the PPV would be perfect. "WMXXX..........it's XXX baby with no edited out footage!"
Frankie Williams
Main Event for WMXXX:

Triple H (with VKM in his corner) vs. Undertaker (with Shane McMahon) vs Steve Austin (with Linda McMahon) vs Hogan (with Stephanie McMahon) vs Rock (with Ed McMahon) for HHH's world title.

10 years is a long time to wait for that barnburner, but its worth it.
Space_Cowboy
I think there'll be a WMXXX. I also think both Vince and Hogan will be involved, i doubt death could pull their geriatric asses out of the spotlight.
Brian
I would be surprised if both are still alive in ten years. Hogan's taken a lot of bumps and both were using steroids, and the general hectic schedules (Hogan from the glory days and Vince's work with the company).

Ed? Is he the demon offspring?

Edit: I be stupid. Me forget who Ed McMahon be.
Youth N Asia
You think Ed and his hard drinking have 10 years left?

I look forward to WM 40, where we'll likely see HHH / Steph's demon breed headlining.

Hey, remember Hogan was at WM 1, and he's still doing these damn things (and will probably end up on the WM XX card). With him, I don't count ANYTHING out.
razazteca
Hogan vs Vince the rematch 10 years in the making.
Brian
At some point, things will catch up to those guys. The stress, in the past in some cases, intermixed with injuries and steroid use.

Why do I see that happening?

And why the fuck do I see that also being "a bad match but had lots of emotion and psychology" type of thing we'll say about it like the one they had at WMXIX?

Brock Lesnar vs. Matt Hardy for the WWEEFFF Title

Wouldn't he be only 4 or 5 by that time?

Or is that your point?

If he's even that old. They'd have to start that baby making like now for him to be five.
CanadianChick
I think there will be a WM XXX. Brock would still be around probably, but there probably won't be many others in the Federation today that will be there.

I dunno if Brock will be around. If you look at the WWF 1993 roster and the WWE 2003 roster...not many of the same guys are still around.

10 years is a long time to burn a bridge or end a career

True. But I was thinking age-wise. 36 isn't too old to still be with the company, right?
Youth N Asia
Yeah, if he takes good care of himself there's no reason he can't go another 15 years. I'm just saying that a lot of the major guys in 93 are long gone...a decade is a long time for stuff to happen. Most of the current roster will be out of the WWE or whatever it is by then
LooseCannon25
If you look age wise then these guys would still be in their 30's at the time of WXXX:

Brock Lesnar, Matt Hardy, Rey Mysterio, Brian Kendrick, Batista, Jamie Knoble, Billy Kidman, Haas, Benjamin, John Cena, Rhyno, Randy Orton, LA Resistance, Christian, Edge

Now it all depends on injuries, drugs, death, problems, burned bridges.....i would say out of the current roster there will still be 5-7 left in 10 years.
CanadianChick
Actually, from your list, Edge and Christian would be in their early 40's. But I see your point.
LooseCannon25
Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat??!!!!! Isn't Edge like 28 now? and Christian like 27?
Youth N Asia
Plus there's always goign to be new guys coming in. And with 1 major wrestling company going in the states more guys are going to lose jobs
CanadianChick
Edge and Christian are both going to be 30 by the end of this year.
LooseCannon25
Oh,ok........I see Edge still being around by then....i dont know about Christian
Jobber of the Week
I'm going to promise you guys something:

Barring any career-ending injuries, John Cena is going to be the new Rocky by WM 25. That guy has so much undiscovered ability and they haven't pushed him down our throats ala Lesnar who climbed to the top of the mountain before he actually got over (as a babyface, even.)

Linda, Hunter, and JR can go on about Randy Orton all the fuck they want. I guarantee Cena will be massive in a few years.
JaKyL25
While it's true that the only people who have stayed consistently on the WWE roster since '93 are Undertaker and Billy Gunn, keep in mind that this was in the era of major competition, thus creating the perfect opportunity for bridges to be burned.

If/when another fed becomes powerful enough to be a WCW-level competitor for WWE, then we can start really questioning who will be there and who won't be.

Since I don't see that happening for at least another 5 years, probably longer, I think that most of the roster who are under 30 now are (barring injury) good bets to still be around come WM XXX.

Jericho's what, 31? 32? He'll probably still be around in some capacity too.
LooseCannon25
For some reason I think the 5 biggest stars in the WWE by WMXXX will be :

Brock Lesnar, John Cena, Matt Hardy, Edge, and Shelton Benjamin

I wouldn't mind that a bit.
Stunt Granny
How many people can you name that were around in '93 and are still with the company?

Undertaker
HBK
Nash
Lawler
Ross


Who else?
Youth N Asia
With the exception of Taker (and Shawn...kinda) the others left or were fired from the company at one time.

Holly.


He signed late 1993.
JaKyL25
IIRC, Holly's on-screen debut was at the '94 Rumble. When was he signed in '93? Really late, I assume?

Who then would have ever guessed that the Holly name would live on for so long?

Actually, now that I think about it, no one. He debuted as Thurman "Sparky" Plugg.
Choken One
Does It matter? The fucker been there a long ass time...but then again he been gone for like 18 months...

If we can thank Kurt for anything...it's putting that bastard out of the ring.
Choken One
Just to add...


Yes I know those were seperate incidents (The Angle Caused Injury and his current) but still wanted to thank Angle.
Anglesault
It was TEAMWORK~! from Kurt and Brock.
CanadianChick
And I'm sure they are just so proud of themselves!

Well aren't They just one Happy Rainbow Wrecking Crew?

Amazing how a love for hurting Bob Holly is more credible in making them appear to be good friends than all of WWE's attempts to do so.

I don't think Jericho will be at WM XXX, I think he will know when it is time to step out and won't have an ego keeping him there. Unless he doesn't actually get worse over time...

I think a fair few will remain, although it is impossible to predict who. We can dream though.

What are the odds of some form of porn or at least full-fledged nudity at XXX. It almost wouldn't be complete without it.

And WMXXX will more than likely be at the Garden.
geniusMoment
I really believe HHH will still be headlining. His idol is 53 and still going. He is only 34 and at 44 would still have 9 years to go before even reaching Flairs current age. I just hope he has dropped the title once or twice in this time period.
