Backstage News on the WrestleMania Card, Possible Changes, Lack of Direction, More

– As of this past weekend, the top matches planned for WrestleMania 29 were The Rock vs. John Cena, Jack Swagger vs. Alberto Del Rio, Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar and CM Punk vs. The Undertaker.

Besides Lesnar vs. HHH, it’s said that the rest of the matches could change between now and the pay-per-view. CM Punk could be added to the WWE Title match if The Undertaker doesn’t end up working.

Jack Swagger’s DUI & drug arrest on Wednesday throws another wrench in the plans. No word yet if WWE is planning to pull Swagger from WrestleMania.

A Ryback vs. heel Chris Jericho match has also been planned but there was no tease of the match on RAW when Ryback and Jericho partnered with Sheamus against The Shield. With Jericho off television for several weeks, it appears WWE is going in a different direction with them as well. Sheamus vs. Mark Henry has been discussed, but we’ve yet to see any buildup there.

Top talents like Dolph Ziggler, Randy Orton, Big Show, The Shield, Kane and Daniel Bryan are also without any obvious opponents headed into WrestleMania 29. Despite the lack of direction this year, there’s a feeling that the show will still be a huge success.

    So many ways to go with WM. I have no idea what we will see. If Taker does work, then I have NO problem seeing Punk vs Taker. If Taker does not work, I have NO problem seeing Punk in the title picture. I’m looking forward to watching the card play out and unravel on TV.

      I hope Taker can work… CM Punk would do better by going against Taker than being mixed in the title picture where he would probably be overshadowed.

        I feel that. From articles I have been reading, it is hard to tell if he will or not. I can’t help but feel that he will work and we will just see Rock/Cena in the title picture since WWE seems to really be going for that, but I have a gut feeling that tells me he just wont be working

        I kind of really want to see Punk involved in the title match since those three (Cena, Rock, Punk) have been the three big focal points for the WWE superstar wise, and I think that that those three in the main event will kind of be a “Who is on top” kind of main event. If Punk did it right, he could make sure he is not overshadowed and make sure he is up there with them.

        I don’t know. We will see. I’m anxious to see how the WHC picture will look too with all of the controversy around the Jack Swagger angle, not to mention him getting arrested.

    It’s either title match or bust.

  • Marvin

    Gwad Triple threats can be horrible,Let it be Taker vs Punk pleeease

    Howabout if Taker can’t work, have Heyman or Brock “accidentally” cause Punk to lose against Cena. Not to turn Punk face, but have Heymans guys turn on each other. I know they want Brock vs HHH, but this might be better.

  • PlanoStu

    I’d also like to see Brock vs Ryback, Ryback vs Ryblack. Hey, howabout this one. Have Ryback interfere and cause Cena to lose and have Cena vs Ryback, Punk vs Rock

    Okay wait…. what the hell would be the reason behind Taker attacking Punk all of a sudden? I’d rather see Punk in the WWE title match unless they add a stipulation to Twice in a Lifetime. I hope WWE pulls through with the Mania card this year.
