In the first half of 2022 WWE did a great job booking some amazing feuds like Bianca Belair versus Becky Lynch, Kevin Owens versus Stone Cold Steve Austin and Cody Rhodes versus Seth Rollins. However, there were also feuds that left much to be desired like Edge versus The Miz, or Charlotte Flair versus Ronda Rousey.
But with those feuds behind us, what other feuds should WWE book for the rest of 2022? Which ones shouldn’t they book? Below we will try to answer these questions, starting from the likely feuds, but also fantasizing a little, but always with the interest of the fans as a priority.
10 WWE Should Book: Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton
Roman Reigns and Randy Orton were supposed to face each other at summer slam 2022but The Viper was unable to compete, so WWE used “the old standby”, the one that never fails, Brock Lesnar.
This is a real shame, as fans really wanted to see that match between Reigns, the greatest heel of the last few years, versus Orton, one of the most beloved wrestlers today. Hopefully Randy Orton recovers ahead of schedule and WWE books this feud this year.
9 WWE Shouldn’t Book: Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar
Brock Lesnar is certainly one of the biggest attractions in WWE history, but fans are already tired of the feud between The Beast Incarnate and The Tribal Chief. So, let’s hope that their bout at summer slam will be the last one, the last encounter.
Even if Lesnar and Reigns deliver a classic at SummerSlam, it should be the last match, no matter what, regardless if Theory cashes his Money In The Bank contract or not, please WWE, it’s time to end this seemingly eternal feud. Fans want to see something fresh.
8 WWE Should Book: Bianca Belair vs. Charlotte Flair
WWE has already overextended the feud between Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch, but it has certainly been phenomenal. Regardless, let’s hope it ends at The Biggest Party Of The Summer. We know that when Charlotte Flair returns, she will be chasing a title, and it should be the Raw Women’s Title.
Bianca Belair and Charlotte Flair are incredibly talented, and they could steal the show at any PPV. A couple of matches, or a trilogy, between The EST and the Queen, would be the ideal way to end 2022.
7 WWE Shouldn’t Book: Liv Morgan vs. Charlotte Flair
There is also the possibility of Charlotte Flair coming back looking to regain the SmackDown Women’s Title, and Liv Morgan would be the champion if she retains the title against Ronda Rousey at summer slam. So, we would have a feud between Liv Morgan and Charlotte Flair, but does anyone really think Charlotte is going to put over Liv?
It’s highly unlikely that Liv would win the feud against Charlotte Flair, and the fans would be furious if Liv drops the title so soon, especially if it’s to Charlotte.
6 WWE Should Book: Gunther vs. Sami Zayn
Sami Zayn is a three-time Intercontinental champion, so why not go for a fourth title? The reigning Intercontinental champion, however, has no intention of dropping the title any time soon.
Sami Zayn facing Gunther would be a dream match, which is not common when we talk about the Intercontinental Championship, both are great wrestlers and would surely work very well together. Gunther is already making the title feel important, and a feud with Sami Zayn would elevate the title, and both superstars. Book it, WWE!
5 WWE Shouldn’t Book: Rey Mysterio vs. Dominik Mysterio
Some fans may want to see this father-son feud, and some may not, but the truth is that WWE should not be booking it, at least not in 2022.
If this feud happens, the logical thing would be for Rey to put over Dominik, in fact, Dominik could be the one to retire his father. However, it is too early for that, Dominik is not ready yet, he is still green, and Rey still has gas in the tank to compete in WWE.
4 WWE Should Book: Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey
Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch have unfinished business since WrestleMania 35, when Becky pinned Ronda, but Ronda’s shoulders were not actually on the mat. WWE could even use that botch in the storyline. Becky and Ronda have never faced each other one on one, and this is a match that would surely be amazing.
Ideally, Becky would turn babyface, while Rowdy plays the heel role. In addition, this feud is appealing enough without some title involved.
3 WWE Shouldn’t Book: Randy Orton vs. Riddle
Frankly a feud between Riddle and Randy Orton is must-see stuff, but this year is not the right time to book it, it’s too soon. WWE can still get a lot out of the team of Randy and Riddle, they should even have one more tag team title run, maybe Randy and Riddle could be the ones to dethrone The Usos.
So, Randy and Riddle should remain bros for the rest of 2022, and set up a long storyline that leads to them facing each other next year.
two WWE Should Book: Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre
WWE’s booking is too inconsistent sometimes, and as proof of that is the feud between Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre. The Tribal Chief and The Scottish Warrior already started building their match, in fact, they faced each other in a six-man tag team match at WrestleMania Backlash 2022.
However, for some reason Drew McIntyre forgot about Roman Reigns and started a feud with The Brawling Brutes, mainly Sheamus. Let’s hope WWE fixes this, and we see the expected feud between Reigns and McIntyre as soon as possible.
1 WWE Shouldn’t Book: Women’s Tag Team Championship
Frankly WWE shouldn’t be booking any feuds involving the Women’s Tag Team Championship. These titles were in decline, they have never been less irrelevant, and then when Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out of WWE everything got worse.
There’s no way to save these titles or change what happened, but it’s best to forget about it. Asuka teaming with Alexa Bliss, Nikki ASH teaming with Doudrop, let’s hope WWE isn’t planning to revive the tag team titles.
