Re: Is WWE saving Punk v Bryan for WrestleMania?
Bryan vs. Punk in the main event of Mania would be a great idea. WWE doesn't sell Mania on one match, it's sold on a supercard of top matches that are PPV closers in their own right.
For example, Taker vs. Punk wasn't the main event however it was sold as a top featured match and there are some people that bought WM 29 to see THAT match, not Rock vs. Cena II or HHH vs. Lesnar II. Therefore, a Bryan vs. Punk match, say with the WWE title, will be pushed as a featured match, however we won't know it's the closer until the night of the event. The WWE will have already collected the cash by then and us tuning out or not becomes irrelevant at that point.
Cena will be front and center on posters and will have a big Mania match (and maybe moment). So will Undertaker, and likely HHH and/or Lesnar, and possibly Rock, but they do not need to be in the last match.
