The big night is finally here , will we see the end of the streak? , will John Cena gain revenge over The Rock?, will it be game over ? and will the show off finally cash in ?
Tons of Funk (Brodus Clay & Tensai) and The Funkadactyls (Cameron and Naomi) vs. Team Rhodes Scholars (Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow) and The Bella Twins (Brie and Nikki Bella.
The first of a couple of matches that really don’t have that big show feel ,it’s has had a few weeks build up, the Divas division certainly will benefit from the return of twin magic and Tensai has benefitted from his pairing with Brodus Clay.
Winner – Team Rhodes scholars
Chris Jericho vs. Fandango
Another strange match to be on the big show and a real waste of a genuine main event star in Y2J. I have however enjoyed the new persona of Johnny Curtis and the fact he has refused to debut until we learned to pronounce his name has been very entertaining , lets all pray that Justin Roberts gets it right, otherwise we might see 90,000 walk out of the Met life stadium.
Winner – Chris Jericho
Brock Lesnar (w/ Paul Heyman) vs. Triple H (w/ Shawn Michaels)
The match of the night I am really looking forward to the most , I thought the matches Brock has been in since his return ,all-though few and far between have been fantastic. Paul Heyman has been awesome in the build up as always , expect plenty of carnage maybe even a little juice and outside interference, with the Games career on the line I can only see this going one way.
Winner – Triple H
Team Hell No (Kane and Daniel Bryan) (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston (w/ AJ Lee)
Tag team title match featuring a 2nd full debut of the night which is really odd for Wrestlemania considering its usually reserved for the big names and Celebs.
As much as Team Hell No have been amazing I really want to Bryan back in a big singles run and can actually see AJ costing him gold for the 2nd year in a row , also expect big things from the Show off by the end of the night.
Winners – Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston
Ryback vs. Mark Henry
Even though I will be the first one to tell you both these guys can’t work, the build up has been great with both guys trying to outdo one and another on the monster front. I expect big things from Ryback in the power display and hopefully not botching the end to this match
Winner – Ryback
Sheamus, Randy Orton & Big Show vs. The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns)
The group known has The Shield has had the best push any new guys have received as long as I can remember from Uncle Vince and in a way is what should have happened to the nexus. All three young guys have done very well under the pressure on big PPV shows and don’t expect tonight to be any different.
Believe in the Shield.
Winners – The Shield
Wade Barrett (c) vs. The Miz
Now this Intercontinental Title match may be relegated to the pre show,this another match that given the right length, has big potential .Really tough one to call , given the amount of stop start pushes both guys have had, but this one should go with the great Barrett barrage.
Winner – Wade Barrett
The Undertaker vs. CM Punk (w/ Paul Heyman)
Awful build up really poor taste ,a feud which has seen CM Punk shoe horned into due to no longer being in the title picture, should be an amazing match, possibly even match of the night, given the fact the Deadman normally steps his game up at Mania. But yet again no genuine belief the streak will end and expect Punk to take a real beating and spend some time off TV for a while afterwards
Winner – Undertaker
Alberto Del Rio (w/ Ricardo Rodriguez) (c) vs. Jack Swagger (w/ Zeb Colter)
World Heavyweight Gold on the line in a match that does not really have that big show feel. I think the WWE have done a great job Re-packaging Swagger but still a little hard to take him serious given the fact he was jobbing to Santino and other’s last time he was seen on TV before his absence, the introduction of Dutch Mantell (Zeb) has been a stroke of genius.
Another reason for a lack of excitement is down to struggling to get behind Del Rio as a face , it’s just not believable and I am more excited about what happen after the match.
Winner – Alberto Del Rio ( followed by Dolph Ziggler finally cashing in money in the bank and winning gold)
The Rock (c) vs. John Cena
Is it just me or does anyone even care about this match , we have all known it was coming since the day Cena lost to the Rock last Year , we know the Rock will not be round for long , the fact he is advertised for Extreme rules almost made me think twice about the outcome , hopefully he will be putting over Lesnar at the next PPV, but this night has been owed to John Cena since he put The Rock over last year
Winner – New Champion John Cena
