Shield vs. Sheamus/Orton/Show Will be Match of the Night
You heard it here first.
The Shield have had a number of matches in the WWE and not a single one of them have been bad. They have all ranged from good to borderline classic. There are a few reasons why I think this match will be match of the night at Wrestlemania 29.
1. Randy Orton > Cena, Big Show > Ryback, Kane - Love him or hate him, you have to admit that Big Show is one of the best big man wrestlers of all time. He is just really good at putting on a show (no pun intended) and is a true attraction unlike most of the WWE roster. He looks like he's in the best shape of his life and has put on a number of great matches over the past year. It is also worth noting that he excels in multi-man matches.
Randy Orton is decent worker himself. He's no Daniel Bryan or Chris Jericho, but he can take bumps and is good at selling. This match looks like a perfect opportunity for Orton to prove to the higher ups in the WWE that he still has what it takes.
Sheamus is one of the most consistent wrestlers on the roster. He hasn't had a bad match in a very long time and already has some chemistry with The Shield and in recent weeks, Randy Orton.
2. It's Fresh - "Rematchamania" is a perfect name for this year's card with two of the three main events happening within the last year. Rock/Cena was a decent match last year but only because of the atmosphere. It's possible that they go all out this year, but unless Cena turns heel this match will always be seen as "meh".
HHH/Lesnar fought at Summerslam last year and the majority think that the match was well below expectations. I'm not expecting much from this match because it's the same stipulation as the last one (No Holds Barred) except with Hunter's career on the line. I can't imagine this one being too different from their last encounter, maybe a few more weapons will be used, but that's it. And besides, what good is more weapons if there is no blood? And if there is any blood, it'll be accidental which will then lead to trainers interfering the pacing of the match to stop the blood. *yawn*
Lastly, you have Taker/Punk. In recent years Taker has shown that he takes things up a notch when he is competing at Wrestlemania. But it should be noted that in the past two Wrestlemanias, Taker has been involved in gimmick matches (No Holds Barred and Hell in a Cell). Those types of matches don't require a fast pace, but his match with Punk is a straight up 1 on 1. Taker hasn't really much at all the past couple of years and his injuries have prevented him from working out. I can see him getting gassed pretty fast leading to a mediocre match, but he will be there against CM Punk who is a great wrestler so I don't know, it's up in there.
3. The Shield = Next Big Stars - It's safe to say that the future is looking bright for Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, and Roman Reigns. As I said earlier, The Shield have yet to have a bad match in the WWE; they are extremely consistent. They have wins over guys like Ryback, Sheamus, Bryan, Kane, Jericho, and Cena who are all top guys in WWE. They have been booked as an unstoppable force and I don't see it ending at Wrestlemania. I think they'll want to really solidify Shield as the next big thing at Wrestlemania so perhaps this match will be changed to a Falls Count Anywhere match where they could shine even more.
