10 MORE Huge "What If" Scenarios In WWE History

No Curtain Call, no Stone Cold...

Creating memorable moments is the sole purpose of WWE storytelling.

As per Vince McMahon himself in the seminal 1999 documentary Beyond The Mat, "we make movies," not traditional wrestling shows.

WWE history is unquestionably defined by the company's most iconic set pieces. Things like the Montreal Screwjob, Hogan slamming Andre, and Mankind falling through Hell In A Cell are what hold everything together, and the wrestling landscape would look completely different had these moments not panned out the way they did.

The smallest of alterations can set forth a dramatic chain reaction, completely changing the course of history, leaving the promotion operating under an entirely different set of circumstances.
