“Super Card”
May 16, 2013

Yeah, I know it’s been a while since I’ve sat down and rambled for a bit about the world’s greatest sport, but better late than never, right? I came across a question, asked by a gentleman named Stu Art, in the wrestling group that I belong to on Facebook called “Kult of Kayfabe”. It’s a good question and rather than answer on the Facebook page, I decided to do it the right way. The “Tossing Salt” way. Just like Sinatra, I’m doing it my way. Let’s do this…

Stu Art asks, “If you had an opportunity to do a “dream card” with people wrestling today what would it be? Only condition is it cant be more than 7 matches long and bear in mind they would be wrestling in their current health and state.”

This question kind of stumped me at first because the only wrestling I manage to watch anymore is generally RAW (I DVR it) and I’m not really a big fan of today’s product. I’m a fan of “old-school” wrestling and most of the wrestlers I’d love to see perform and would use in a super-card are older, generally retired or semi-retired and not really of appeal to the modern day “sports-entertainment” fans. I do like a few people though and while this will be strong on WWE and TNA names, I’ve decided to give it a shot and see what I can do to answer this question.

So we’re looking at a “wrestling dream card” with seven matches maximum and the superstars involved would be in their current health and state of being. Okay, here we go.

World Championship Match
Two Out Of Three Falls
CM Punk versus William Regal

Street Fight
Timber The Lumberjack w/ Joey Nuggs versus Michael Youngblood

Brock Lesnar w/ Paul Heyman versus Samoa Joe

Chris Jericho, Charlie Haas and “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels versus Austin Aries, James Storm and Bobby Roode

Four Corners Tag Team Elimination Match
The Main Attraction (Scott Powers & Chris Steele) versus BD Productions (Derk Douglas & Brad Branson) versus Ethan Storm & Cham Pain versus Carlito Colon & Chris Masters

Kharma & Tara (Victoria) versus Beth Phoenix & Natayla – Special Referee: Lita

Hell In A Cell
The Undertaker versus Matt Morgan

And there you go. And I can already see a lot of naysayers scratching their heads about my “card” and some of the folks I’ve included. Well, let’s run down the matches and I’ll explain why I picked each one and the participants involved.

The main event is CM Punk versus William Regal. It’s pretty obvious that Punk is the “name” that will draw fans and put the butts in the seats. Regal is just one of the most well-rounded and talented men in the world of professional wrestling. It would be a great match to watch and the two out of three falls stipulation is to pretty much give us three great matches for the price of one.

The street fight between Timber and Mike Youngblood is simply two men who I know (one casually, one very well) and they have great chemistry together and bring out the very best in each other when they wrestle. They’d try to steal the show and could very well do so with the great action (and shenanigans) that these men are very capable of.

Brock Lesnar versus Samoa Joe would just be a brutal, stiff and fun match to watch.

The six man tag between Jericho and friends versus Beer Money and Aries would pit the three most talented and charismatic men in TNA (in my opinion) against probably the best “sports entertainer” in the business right now with Jericho and one of my personal favorites, Charlie Haas, along with Daniels, who is simply amazing at what he does.

The “Four Corners” match would give my three favorite tag teams (all friends), who are also some of the most amazing and talented performers that I’ve ever had the chance to watch wrestle a chance to strut their stuff and showcase their talents. As for Carlito, I miss watching him perform and Chris Masters is probably the hottest guy in the world right now who’s not part of either TNA or the WWE. He and Carlito made a great tag team in the WWE and this match, with the skills and talents of all the men involved, would be a clinic in tag team wrestling.

The women’s tag match consist of four of the biggest names and best ladies currently in wrestling. Get Lita to be the ref to add some “star power” and let these ladies all do what they do best… wrestle.

And the Hell in A Cell match is the Undertaker’s special match. After Wrestlemania, it’s his major claim to fame. Matt Morgan is big enough, good enough and talented enough to not only push Taker to the limit, but take him down. It would be one helluva match to see.

And that’s it. My “super-card”. Maybe it’s not the “big names” that everyone would be expecting, but with this card and these talents, I can promise you that this would be a show that, from match 1 to match 7, would entertain and keep the fans excited and interested. It would be that damn good! And yeah, it would put butts in the seats. I’d pay to see it.

And on that note, I’m out of here for now. Got things to do and a bed that keeps calling my name. I’m Doug and thank you for reading. I do appreciate it. Comments and questions are welcome.

Until the next time, “dat is all de’ people need to know!”.
