It’s been no secret for most of the year that The Rock and John Cena were going to square off for the WWE Title at Wrestlemania 29. But what many didn’t really know was how the rest of the card was going to shape up. Now that we are 3 weeks away from the ‘Showcase of the Immortals’ we now know the majority of the card.
The Rock vs. John Cena
Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger
Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar
The Undertaker vs. CM Punk
Ryback vs. Mark Henry
Kane and Daniel Bryan vs. Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston
Sheamus, Randy Orton, and Big Show vs. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns)
There are likely to be a few other matches added but as of now those listed above are the only ones that are official. We could see Miz vs. Wade Barrett for the Intercontinental Title and Chris Jericho vs. Fandango. I am not sure if the WWE would want to have Fandango’s first match at their biggest show but surely Y2J will get a spot on the card. Antonio Cesaro will also get a spot on the undercard possibly the Youtube match before the show goes live on pay per view. Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow also could get something or at least appear in a skit during the show. Rhodes has been giving a lot of time on TV lately and I doubt they leave him off the show. Ziggler has a lot of momentum and could cash in his Money in the Bank suitcase at the show should Del Rio retain his title from Swagger.
It’s a shame we are getting stuck with The Rock vs. Cena 2 and a rematch of Lesnar and HHH. I’d rather see fresh matchups between the established guys and up and comers. The Rock vs. Ryback, Ziggler vs. Cena, Lesnar vs. Miz, and Triple H vs. Rhodes would be a lot more fun and would help bring up the guys facing the big names who are already giant Superstars in the WWE Universe. In a few years Lesnar, the Rock and Triple H won’t be around and the WWE will need fresh stars for future Wrestlemanias that they should be building now.
Former WWE champ Chris Jericho went on Twitter to squash any rumors of a return to the WWE. Rumors have been swirling for a while that Jericho could return later this year. Then again Jericho could be fooling everyone and show up on RAW Monday.
Let me get something straight…I will never wrestle for the WWE again. But there is some big news coming up in the world of dance….
