WrestleMania Remix: WrestleMania X-Seven

I told you we weren't just going to do the bad ones.

Not sure what a "WrestleMania Remix" is? Want a refresher of the rules? Check out our posts on WrestleMania XXVIII, WrestleMania IX and WrestleMania Play Button 31.

WrestleMania X-Seven wasn't just perhaps the best WrestleMania ever. It wasn't even just perhaps the best wrestling pay-per-view ever. It was the "end of an era." The Monday Night War was over. At this event, the Austin/McMahon feud would end. The next year, the WWF itself would end, becoming WWE.

So, of course, we're going to change it.

Here is the card as it originally aired:

Preshow Match:
X-Factor (Justin Credible and X-Pac) (with Albert) defeated Steve Blackman and Grand Master Sexay

WWF Intercontinental Championship
Chris Jericho (c) defeated William Regal

Six-man tag team match
Tazz and The APA (Bradshaw and Faarooq) (with Jacqueline) defeated Right to Censor (The Goodfather, Val Venis, and Bull Buchanan) (with Steven Richards)

Triple threat hardcore match for the WWF Hardcore Championship
Kane defeated Raven (c) and Big Show

Singles match for the WWF European Championship
Eddie Guerrero (with Perry Saturn) defeated Test (c)

Kurt Angle defeated Chris Benoit

WWF Women's Championship
Chyna defeated Ivory (c)

Street Fight with Mick Foley as the special guest referee
Shane McMahon defeated Mr. McMahon (with Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley)

Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match for the WWF Tag Team Championship
Edge and Christian defeated The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray and D-Von) (c) and The Hardy Boyz (Matt and Jeff)

The Iron Sheik won the Gimmick Battle Royal

The Undertaker defeated Triple H

No Disqualification match for the WWF Championship
Stone Cold Steve Austin defeated The Rock (c)

Okay, that's a really good card.

So, here's the Remix:

As per usual, I don't remix battle royals, so the Gimmick Battle Royal is saved. Also, Ivory versus Chyna will have to stay, as there are no other women competing on the card.

Preshow match
Val Venis vs Grand Master Sexay
This would be a horrible match. Val Venis at this point was in the Right to Censor, so he's all serious and stuff. Grand Master Sexay isn't serious. People will be happy if he wins. That starts the night off on a high note.

Big Show and Steve Blackman vs Right to Censor (The Goodfather and Bull Buchanan) (with Steven Richards)
I think Big Show was a heel at this point, but who cares? He's turned 3234 times, so just turn him again for this match. Have it be two guys who are sick of the Right to Censor and who stand up to them.

William Regal and Mr. McMahon (with Stephanie McMahon-Helmsley) vs The Hardy Boyz (Matt and Jeff)
William Regal had helped Vince and Stephanie embarrass Trish Stratus, so Lita would come out to defend her, setting up a match between the Hardyz and Vince/Regal.

Fourway Tag Team Match
X-Factor (Justin Credible and X-Pac) (with Albert) vs The APA (Bradshaw and Faarooq) (with Jacqueline) vs The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray and D-Von) vs Raven and Tazz
This match would be to name number one contenders for the tag team titles. The Dudleyz would win.

WWF Hardcore Championship with Mick Foley as the special guest referee
Kane (c) vs Shane McMahon
Shane is crazy and willing to risk his health. Fresh off of buying WCW, he's feeling cocky and challenges Kane for the Hardcore title. Kane throws him through unlimited things to pop the crowd. 

WWF Tag Team Championship
Edge and Christian (c) vs Chris Benoit and Test
Chris Benoit and Test are both Canadian, so they would become partners. Edge and Christian are Canadian too. Make this match about Canada or something. Also, the tag belts.

WWF Women's Championship
Chyna vs Ivory (c)
I have no other options.

Triple Threat Match for WWF Intercontinental Championship & WWF European Championship
Chris Jericho (c) vs Kurt Angle vs Eddie Guerrero (with Perry Saturn) (c)
Jericho is IC champ and Guerrero is Euro champ. Have them feud about who the better champion is, then have Kurt Angle come out and say he's the real "best champion" because he's got Olympic gold.

Gimmick Battle Royal
Same as booked.

Triple H vs The Rock
This should have happened the year before at WrestleMania 2000, so let's do it here instead.

WWF Championship
The Undertaker (c) vs Stone Cold Steve Austin
These two always had good chemistry together, so why not do it at WrestleMania? The only downside is that, if Austin wins (because it's in Texas) that ends the Undertaker's Streak before it has a chance to really become a "thing." The other option is to do Triple H versus Austin and Undertaker versus The Rock, which would also work.

This was a hard one because WrestleMania X-Seven was so good. However, the roster was stacked at this moment, so basically any combination of guys would have put on a good show. 

What do you think?
