Re: WrestleMania XXIX Match Card Predictions
Wrestlemania XXIX: Now or Never
DARK MATCH (not related to 'Ryblack' jokes)
Big E. Langston (c) def. Chris Hero
Instead of a 20-man Battle Royal match that few people will care for, I'll have the NXT Championship Match instead. It doesn't require much exposure yet pushing 2 young bucks in the biggest stage of them all is very necessary. Giving Langston a good long unstoppable reign will give the title some competitive prestige.
Alberto del Rio and Ricardo Rodriquez def. Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara
As we all expect, either Rey or Cara will turn heel. In this case, Cara will unmask himself and attack Rey after the match. This will leads to Rey's retirement match on Extreme Rules.
2. A BRITISH AFFAIR
Wade Barrett(c) def. William Regal
This will finally keep British fans shut! Regal definitely deserves one more big match. This is a true passing-of-the-torch match right here.
3. CLASH OF THE TITANS
Ryback def. The Big Show and Brock Lesnar
The addition of Lesnar would make this even a greater and more intense spectacle. Show counters the first Shell Shock but the second SS will be a massive shocker. Don't expect a broken ring this time though.
4. THE RETURN OF THE VIPER
World Heavyweight Championship
Dolph Ziggler(c) def. Randy Orton
Ziggler cashes in the MITB at the Rumble and wins the WHC. Orton is still a face but after losing the match, he goes into a tantrum and gives his father, Bob Orton, an RKO. Bob is in the audience throughout the show by the way. Ziggler winning cleanly will let him show the world he is a credible world champ.
5. THE UNDERACHIEVERS VS. THE OVERACHIEVERS
WWE Tag Team Championship (6-man tag)
3MB def. Rhodes Scholars(c) and Christian
This could work well if 3MB progresses their in-ring and mic skills and create a unique finisher of their own. It's all about getting over.
6. THE BETTER MAN- ONCE AND FOR ALL
Daniel Bryan def. Kane
Aside from their 'dysfunctional' rivalry, the winner becomes the #1 Contender for the WWE Championship.
7. BATTLE OF THE HOES
AJ Lee def. Eve Torres (c)
This is a sexy heel-vs-heel match that can work very well!
The Shield def. Triple H, John Cena and Vince McMahon
If Shield wins, they get control on Raw.
If the McMahon family wins, the Shield will be fiiiiired!!!
MAIN EVENT: PG AND ATTITUDE MEET AGAIN
The Rock def. CM Punk(c)
Special Guest Referee- Stone Cold Steve Austin
This is actually a Royal Rumble rematch between Rock and Punk. Despite this, the Rock wins the Royal Rumble match, eliminating John Cena. The problem with the RR match is that it only lasted less than 10 minutes and the Shield screwed screwed Rock over. Nearing the end of Road to Wrestlemania, the Raw GM announces that Austin will be the special guest referee which creates a gigantic swerve among fans. Punk and Austin will have some sort of heat during a Raw promo, a week before Mania. During the match, we won't know who Austin will screw over. Remember that the Rock put him into retirement way back in 2003; therefore, Austin salutes then stuns Rocky at the end.
- This card is designed to be as unpredictable yet logical as possible (unlike some of the predictions posted above).
- Other than Punk and The Shield, Taker seems to have no worthy adversaries next Wrestlemania. I think it's better for Taker to take a break and better prepare for his WM30 match instead. Also, the Rock and Lesnar's presence provides enough star-power for this Mania; adding Taker into the card just overloads the card. Again, this is what is wrong in some of the predictions posted above.
- Sheamus is out of the card because of injury. Inserting him into the "Clash of the Titans" match would be a great idea too.
