Re: WrestleMania XXIX Match Card Predictions
I concur with this. As sad as it is, the Intercontinental Championship hasn't been defended at a WrestleMania since XXV in 2009, and that match was less than a minute. Before that, the last time it was defended at a WrestleMania was X-8 in 2002! As for the United States Championship, that hasn't been defended at a WrestleMania since 23 in 2007. And, since its inception in summer 2008, the Divas championship has yet to be defended at a WrestleMania.
If I could book it, I'd have Wade Barrett defending the Intercontinental Championship against Christian, Antonio Cesaro defending the United States Championship against a returning face All-American American Jack Swagger and Kaitlyn defending the Divas championship against AJ. And I would have all three of them retain their titles.
The sad reality, however, is that Barrett and Cesaro may not even make the show. And if Kaitlyn does, it'll be as part of some match that involves a Diva celebrity in some way, with no mention of the Divas Championship. It's sad, but I remember when all of the titles used to be up for grabs at WrestleMania. That should be a must at a WrestleMania, in my opinion.
It was defended last year my friend. Cody Rhodes vs Big Show. Forgettable 5 minute match, yes, but it was there.
