WrestleMania Remix: WrestleMania 31

Yes, it's time to take on WrestleMania Play Button. We're not going to just do the bad ones. For the Remix rules that we're following, check out our WrestleMania IX Remix and WrestleMania 27 Remix posts.

And, yes, this remix means no awesome Seth Rollins cash-in. Sorry.

Here's the card as it actually aired:

Preshow Match:
WWE Tag Team Championship - Fatal 4-Way
Tyson Kidd and Cesaro (c) (with Natalya) defeated The New Day (Big E and Kofi Kingston) (with Xavier Woods), Los Matadores (Diego and Fernando) (with El Torito), and The Usos (Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso) (with Naomi)

Preshow Match:
Big Show won the André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

Ladder match for the WWE Intercontinental Championship
Daniel Bryan defeated Bad News Barrett (c), Dolph Ziggler, Stardust, Luke Harper, R-Truth, and Dean Ambrose

Randy Orton defeated Seth Rollins (with Jamie Noble and Joey Mercury)

No Disqualification Match
Triple H defeated Sting

Tag Team Match
AJ Lee and Paige defeated The Bella Twins (Nikki Bella and Brie Bella) by submission

WWE United States Championship
John Cena defeated Rusev (c) (with Lana)

The Undertaker defeated Bray Wyatt

WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Seth Rollins defeated Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar (c) (with Paul Heyman)

Two notes: First, I'm not changing the Andre The Giant Battle Royal because that's crazy. Second, I'm going to remix the card as it was originally booked, so the booked main event was Roman Reigns versus Brock Lesnar. The Seth Rollins cash-in was a booking decision, not a booked match.

So, here's the Remix:

Preshow Match:
The New Day (Big E and Kofi Kingston) (with Xavier Woods) vs Stardust and R-Truth
Remember, this was the New Day that nobody liked. Stardust & R-Truth could have been a "wacky tag team" that WWE loves. I know that both of them were technically in a match with each other on the official card, but switching Stardust and R-Truth from opponents to tag partners feels like enough of a remix to me.

Preshow Match:
Los Matadores (Diego and Fernando) (with El Torito), AJ Lee and Paige vs The Bella Twins (Nikki Bella and Brie Bella) & The Usos (Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso) (with Naomi)
I know, this looks like another place where I cheated, and I did, but there was nothing else I could do with AJ Lee, Paige and the Bellas. I wanted to have AJ Lee vs Paige, but then there's no one left for the Bellas to face.

The André the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
This stays as is.

WWE Tag Team Championship
Tyson Kidd and Cesaro (c) (with Natalya) vs John Cena and Daniel Bryan
I think Cena and Bryan would have been an entertaining tag team and being in a tag team would allow Bryan to work a reduced schedule. They'd win the belts here.

WWE Intercontinental Championship
Bad News Barrett (c) vs Bray Wyatt
This would be part of a "Wyatt Family Takeover" storyline where the Wyatts would reunite with a new focus and want to claim all of the gold.

WWE United States Championship
Rusev (c) (with Lana) vs Luke Harper
Same "Wyatt Family Takeover" deal here.

Triple H vs Dolph Ziggler
Ziggler was the reason Triple H's Authority team lost at Survivor Series, so this is the blow off to that feud.

No Holds Barred Triple Threat Match
Roman Reigns vs Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins
The Shield triple threat should have happened before they ran the idea into the ground. You could even spice things up and have Seth's Money in the Bank briefcase on the line, if you wanted.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Brock Lesnar (c) vs Randy Orton
Basically take everything that happened leading up to their SummerSlam 2016 match and do it here. Orton would be the Royal Rumble winner.

The Undertaker vs Sting
How did this not actually happen? I don't care if the match would be bad. It's a dream match. And, yes, it would close the show.

Now, I'm not sure if this would be better than the actual card, but I kind of like it. What do you think?
