What If…Part 2

Welcome to part two of my "What If" trilogy. If you are saying, "Part two? I don't remember part one", then click here to read the first part. I got a lot to cover so I'm going to dive right into the "What Ifs" and skip an introduction.

What If…..Part 1

[Note: I will continue to write "How I Would Book It" columns. As of now, my plan is that the majority of my articles on this site will be "How I Would Book It" columns. The rest will be non-gimmick articles like this "What If" trilogy. I originally was thinking of having a different "What If" column each week but I realized I would run out of topics eventually. I still wanted to write them so here is part one.]

What are the greatest moments in WWE history? When I see that I question, I think of a lot of things. I think of Hulk Hogan vs. Andre the Giant. I think of the Stone Cold "Austin 3:16" speech. I think of Mankind getting thrown off of the cell. I think of Stone Cold wearing a crimson mask while Bret Hart has him in the Sharpshooter. I even think of The Miz cashing in his Money in the Bank briefcase to become WWE Champion. Those are some of the greatest moments to ever happen in the WWE. They are also events that very easily could have never taken place. A lot of things could have prevented those things from happening and a lot of things did almost prevent them from happening. I am going to present several "What Ifs" in this column and in the future "What If" columns. First, all of these "What Ifs" are incidents that affected the WWE. I did not include any "What Ifs" that might have affected another wrestling company like WCW or TNA but not affect the WWE much at all. Second, I only included "What Ifs" that had a really decent chance at actually happening. I'm not going to do a "What if The Rock was never born" or "What if Vince McMahon didn't make John Cena into the face of the WWE" unless I found research that Rocky Johnson forgot to wear a condom or that Vince McMahon was originally against giving Cena a push. I also want to mention that you might notice a lot of "What Ifs" related to The Rock, Stone Cold, and Shawn Michaels. It just so happens that they all have some really good "What Ifs". This is part one of what will be a "What If" trilogy. These "What Ifs" are in order of when the events happened.

How I Would Book It- Mark Henry’s World Heavyweight Championship Feud

Something has been bothering me lately. Why does Mark Henry have very few accomplishments in the WWE? It seems like everyone in the Internet Wrestling Community is complaining about Christian losing the World Heavyweight Championship to Randy Orton on a recent episode of Friday Night Smackdown. At least Christian won the title. Mark Henry has never been World Champion in the WWE. Mark Henry has been with the WWE since 1996. Christian has spent less years with the company and made his WWE debut in 1998. Mark Henry has been with the WWE his entire wrestling career while Christian spent three years from November 2005 to November 2008 with TNA Wrestling. Despite all of that, Christian's title victory at Extreme Rules was praised as being well deserved and no one seems to be demanding that Mark Henry gets a title reign. I'm not much of a Mark Henry fan but he has spent so much time with the WWE and it seems he is not being appreciated enough. How can the WWE call Mark Henry "The World's Strongest Man" and never make him the World Heavyweight Champion? Mark Henry deserves a push so it is time for me to discuss how I would book Mark Henry's opportunity at becoming the next World Heavyweight Champion.

How I Would Book It- Chris Jericho’s WWE Return

Where has all of the old school Superstars gone in the WWE? The last survivors of the Attitude Era are becoming extinct. Triple H rarely appears on TV anymore. The Undertaker is always away with injuries that magically heal right in time for Wrestlemania or Summerslam. Shawn Michaels is retired after a long career. Edge is retired due to his neck injuries. Goldust is out with an injury and may never come back. I watched a lot of WWE as a kid from 1999 to 2001 and there are not many Superstars left from my childhood. Only a handful remains: Mark Henry, Christian, William Regal, Big Show, and Kane. Does R-Truth count? I never saw "R-Truth" as a kid but I do remember "K-Kwik". Sure The Rock has come back but unfortunately, The Great One is appearing on RAW only once a month. The good news is that one of the greatest WWE Superstars of all-time could return soon. He is a Superstar who I like more now than I did 12 years ago when he first debuted in the WWE. The man I am referring to is the best in the world at what he does….Chris Jericho.

How I Would Book It- John Cena's heel turn

Welcome to another addition of How I Would Book It. This time I am focusing on a very controversial topic.....John Cena. John Cena is considered the top superstar of the WWE. He blows the roof off of nearly every building he performs in but he is not loved by all. His character could use a little bit of a change and the best way to change a good guy's character is to turn him into a heel. Here is how I would book John Cena's heel turn.
