On RAW the feud between Del Rio and Mysterio ended within the first two weeks after Elimination Chamber, but before it ended, the likes of a heel Kelly Kelly and Primo on Del Rio's side, and John Cena on Mysterio's side, became a part of it. In the last two weeks before Mania, Mysterio picked up wins against The Miz. Mysterio is now going to the main event of WrestleMania as the Royal Rumble winner, to face WWE Champion CM Punk.

Speaking of Punk, the WWE Champion faced Alberto Del Rio three weeks before Mania and won. After that match Ziggler and Swagger came out on the stage and had a staredown with Punk. The next week Punk was set to face Ziggler, Swagger and their handpicked partner Kevin Nash in a 3-on-1 Handicap. Ziggler eventually pinned Punk, but only after Swagger walked away from Ziggler during the match when Ziggler was in trouble. After the match Ziggler was also attacked by Nash. The week before Mania, Punk defeated Ziggler, after Ziggler was first attacked by Swagger during Ziggler's entrance, and during the match Nash popped up among the crowd and sucker punched Ziggler. Swagger attacked Ziggler after the match, but surprisingly Punk came back and made the save. No turn though for Ziggler.

Other tings worth mentioning:

Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater battled in two matches to end the rivalry that started the week before Elimination Chamber. Gabriel won the first match after a sneak attack, and Gabriel also won the second match which was an Extreme Rules match.

Zack Ryder earned a United States Championship match by defeating Drew McIntyre.

Undertaker returned for the first time since WrestleMania 27 in a match between Triple H and Miz to set up Undertaker vs. Triple H II. Since then Triple H has defeated R-Truth, but Undertaker have not been in action.

WWE Superstars

On WWE Superstars Kofi kingston has had some problems with both The Miz and Jack Swagger. But Kofi first defeated Miz, and the week after that he defeated Swagger in a 15-Minute Iron Man Match with the score 5-3.

Other tings worth mentioning:

Titus O'Neil had his main roster debut on the first episode of WWE Superstars since Elimination Chamber, where he defeated Tyler Reks. Since then he also pinned Reks' tag partner Curt Hawkins in a Triple Threat which also had Evan Bourne in it.

Two weeks before Mania on Superstars in a match where Divas Champion Beth Phoenix faced Kelly Kelly, Candice Michelle made a shocking return and caused Beth the match. After the match she was announced as Beth's opponent at WrestleMania for the Divas title.


On SmackDown the biggest feud were undoubtably the Randy Orton/Wade Barret feud, that has been going on since the week before Elimination Chamber, and is still going on as we head into WrestleMania. On the first SmackDown Orton defeated Barrett. The week after that Barrett defeated Orton. The next week Orton again defeated Barrett. Two weeks before Mania Orton once again beat Barrett, this time due to Mark Henry attacking Barrett before the match. Two days before Mania Barrett and Orton was set to team up to face The Usos, but Orton had to go in there alone as Barrett didn't show. During the match Barrett came out and attacked Orton, causing Orton to get pinned by a surprised Jey Uso. This feud continues as Orton and Barrett challenges Mark Henry for the World Heavyweight Championship in a Triple Threat.

Other tings worth mentioning:

Hunico has been on a roll both on SmackDown and Superstars, defeating the likes of William Regal and Yoshi Tatsu, before getting up the card and having not one, but two matches with Mark Henry.

In a big surprise Del Rio attacked World Champion Mark Henry with a lead pipe after Henry defeated Hunico the first time. This lead to Hunico helping Del Rio for a couple of weeks in a Interbranded feud between Del Rio and Henry. Henry beat Hunico two times and Del Rio once, before Del Rio actually pinned "The World's Strongest Man" two days before WrestleMania on SmackDown, after Hunico first attacked Henry before the bell, and then Del Rio sent Henry crashing into both sets of steel steps before the match started.

Also, two night before WrestleMania Beth Phoenix pinned Candice Michelle in her first match back, in a Triple Threat that also saw Kelly Kelly in it.
Here's the results:

WrestleMania 28

Zack Ryder defeats Dolph Ziggler to become the NEW United States Champion

Air Boom defeats Primo and Epico to retain the WWE Tag Team Championships
(Kingston pinned Primo)

Candice Michelle defeats Beth Phoenix to become the NEW Divas Champion
(Beth reversed a finisher, and after that it took two finishers before Candice got the win)

Wade Barrett defeated Mark Henry and Randy Orton in a Triple Threat to become the NEW World Heavyweight Champion
(After Orton had already kicked out of the Wasteland once, Barrett stole the pin as he saw his opportunity when Orton hit Henry with an RKO and then threw Orton out of the ring and pinned Henry)

Undertaker defeats Triple H to go 20-0 at WrestleMania
(A real memorable match as Undertaker kicked out of two Pedigrees and Triple H kicked out of both a Chokeslam, a Last Ride and a Tombstone before falling victim to a second Tombstone Piledriver. After the match new World Champion Wade Barrett attacked Undertaker with his newly won title and stood tall over the fallen Undertaker with the title raised high)

CM Punk defeats Rey Mysterio to retain the WWE Championship
(During the match John Cena came to ringside to be in Mysterio's corner, and surprisingly Dolph Ziggler came to add things up. After both superstars kicking out of a finisher each, Punk put Mysterio in the Anaconda Vice, and although Mysterio fought and fought, he had to tap out. After the match Ziggler congratulated Punk)

My thoughts:

Well, I hope Ryder would take the title from Ziggler, so I'm glad he did. 1: Because Ryder deserves a title run. 2: Because I believe Ziggler is ready for bigger things. Barrett as new World Champion is good, because since Henry turned face he's lost what he had about him when he was heel like in real life. But then Barrett attacked Taker after the match with Triple H... Hadn't really planned on using Undertaker at all besides on the Road To WrestleMania and at WrestleMania, and I thought that Barrett and Orton would keep their feud going now that one of them has the World title. But I'll just have to wait and see. and Punk defeatig the Royl Rumble winner Rey Mysterio was good, but although I don't mind a face turn from Ziggler I actually saw him as one of the possibilities as the next #1 Contender.

Yeah sadly just six matches. I'd preferred if they had raised it to at least seven or eight, to make WrestleMania more special than the other PPVs.

- Kelly Kelly defeated Beth Phoenix to win the Women's Championship
- John Cena defeated Triple H to win the World Heavyweight Championship (RAW)
- Big Show defeated Chavo Guerrero to retain the WWE Championship (SD!)
- CM Punk (RAW) won the 30-Man Royal Rumble match last eliminating Mark Henry (SD!)

So providing Cena doesn't lose the World title, it looks like my WrestleMania main event will be John Cena vs CM Punk! And I didn't adjust the TV matches so I just played with whoever I wanted to win, although I didn't deliberately give Chavo a super push!
My follow up Elimination Chamber card occurred as the following:

- CM Punk defeated Goldust (RAW)
- Booker T, Wade Barrett and Cody Rhodes defeated The Undertaker and Daniel Bryan in a 3-on-2 handicap match. Rhodes pinned 'Taker (SD!)
- Dolph Ziggler defeated Arn Anderson (RAW)
- Natalya defeated Kelly Kelly and Beth Phoenix to win the Women's Championship
- Big Show (entered 1st) defeated Christian, William Regal, Eddie Guerrero, Chavo Guerrero and Randy Orton to retain the WWE Championship (EC - SD!)
- John Cena (entered 4th) defeated Kevin Nash, Brock Lesnar, Stone Cold, Triple H and Shawn Michaels to retain the World Heavyweight Championship (EC - RAW)

Had to adjust the undercard a bit and remove CM Punk from the main World title match as I can't have Punk as Royal Rumble winner and World Champion at the same time. Plus there was a random Austin/Mason Ryan match that had somehow got onto the card so I've had to change that a bit.

My last two in the World title Chamber came down to Cena/Nash, boy I'm actually glad Cena won...

Nothing, you've gotta have a minimum amount on each roster, 15 I think?
