Since we're in Mania season, I was just casting my mind back to WM28 and in the main, the number 2 and 3 matches on the card, Punk v Jericho and Undertaker v HHH III. I was thinking that the card could have been a lot stronger if HHH and Jericho swapped places.

Helmsley was a big name needed to solidify Punk as a main eventer, as opposed to just champion, similarly to as Austin had done for him at No Way Out in 2001. Jericho looked more like a nuisance as opposed to a credible threat to the main title at Wrestlemania.

You also had HHH v Undertaker 3, which was overkill (for me at least). I feel Jericho would have been better suited to the role, it'd been a feud which had never happened as opposed to HHH v Undertaker which had happened at least thrice.

Let us know your thoughts and/or any matches you'd have booked differently.

Re: Rebooking Wrestlemania 28

The card was fine. Jericho/Punk was fresh and Triple H/Taker was great because of the HBK special referee dynamic. Overall Mania 28 was great. Mania 29 needed serious rebooking though.

Re: Rebooking Wrestlemania 28

Mania 28 was great, Cena/Rock wasnt predictable, Jericho/Punk was great and Hunter/Taker was suspenseful throughout

I liked this show, Rock winning was so unexpected and so awesome, Taker/HHH I wasn't happy with happening again but that turned out to be an absolute war and with HBK in the middle it stole the show. Punk/Jericho was pretty good but I think it suffered going between the other 2 matches listed.
