Re: Is WrestleMania this obvious?
I don't think it is that obvious, I haven't seen any evidence to suggest a Punk/Taker match and I'm more leaning towards a Punk/Rock/Cena triple threat for the WWE championship.
I'm hoping for the latter of the two as it would be far less (but still a little) predictable. An easy way to set that up would be for Punk to regain the title at EC (though I'm guessing WWE wants to get as much free publicity as possible from Rock's media appearances heading into 'Mania (where they talk about the fact that he is WWE Champion again during talk shows and have him with the title in photo shoots and stuff)). IF they were to go with a triple threat 'Mania Main Event and have Punk beat Rock at EC to set up said match, could see them obviously having said three-way match at 'Mania - with Cena pinning Rock --- setting up a match between Punk - who didn't get pinned to lose the title and Cena for Extreme Rules, possibly with Punk winning it back (with another re-match at the following PPV). Would easily set up the top two full time names to carry the company to SummerSlam essentially, other than the MITB PPV (which sells its self with two MITB matches and two Heavyweight Title Matches) IMO...
