Monster’s Wrestlemania 29 Preview [Opinion]
It's time once again for the Super Bowl of wrestling. Of course, I'm talking about Wrestlemania 29, which is taking place at Met Life Stadium in New Jersey.
And don't forget that Slammin' It will be back tomorrow during Crunchtime at 12pm so get your wrestling questions ready as it's the only time a year that we dedicate a whole hour on the air to pro wrestling.
So lets get to it, here is your Wrestlemania 29 preview:
The Miz vs. Wade Barrett
Team Hell NO (Daniel Bryan & Kane) (C) v Dolph Ziggler & Big E Langston w/A.J. Lee
The chemistry between these teams has been great. Throw in the craziness of AJ and who knows how this match will turn out.
Langston will be making his WWE debut so we'll have to see how he can do in a actual match.
One thing that is for sure is that Daniel Bryan will defend his tag titles a lot longer than he did his World Title at last year's Mania. Kane taking Big E's finish on Raw probably means Langston will take a Tombstone, or at least a chokeslam, to even it all out. The worst case scenario with this match would be Daniel Bryan chasing Dolph Ziggler around with nothing but kicks, and that's better than most match's best case scenarios.
Prediction: Team Hell No gets the win and well all be yelling YES YES YES!
Tons of Funk (Brodus Clay & Sweet Tea) & The Funkadactyls (Cameron & Naomi) vs. Team Rhodes Scholars (Cody Rhodes & Damien Sandow) & The Bella Twins (Nikki & Brie)
This is what you call a filler match. I expect this to be the shortest match of the night. We've seen the boys go at it for weeks, and on Raw this past Monday we saw the ladies go at it. And surprisingly it was a decent match. Translation I want to see the girls go at it more than the fellas.
Randy Orton, Sheamus, & Big Show v The Shield (Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins)
I love how the WWE is handling the Shield. The Nexus angle felt rushed and those guys didn't seem like a legit threat. The Shield has so much momentum right now that it would be wrong if they give them a clean loss at Wrestlemania.
This match will be high-octane, short and action packed. Every superstar will hit their signature move in this one.
Prediction: Randy Orton turns on his tag team partners and returns to the bad side of the force. He's better as a heel, and he'd be perfect to go up against Alberto Del Rio after he's done with his feud with Sheamus.
Chris Jericho vs. Fandango
Fandango will finally be making his in ring debut at Wrestlemania and he has a lot of pressure going in. If he does good, then this very weak gimmick will continue if not he'll be dancing with Tons of Funk.
Its a shame that Jericho is in this match, but they need him to make Fandango look good.
Prediction: Fandango has to win.
Ryback vs Mark Henry
Ryback is a future Wrestlemania headliner, but not this year. At Wrestlemania he will face a man as strong as him in Mark Henry.
I see the typical power big guy match. Test of strength, bear hugs and power slams.
Prediction: Ryback wins when he impressively lifts Mark Henry and gives him the Shell Shock.
Alberto Del Rio w/Ricardo Rodriguez (C) vs. Jack Swagger w/Zeb Colter
Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H
This is one of the main matches at Wrestlemania, but why am I not that excited about it. Is it because Brock Lesnar can only wrestle a couple times a year, and Triple H is turning into the new Undertaker in which he only wrestles at Wrestlemania?
Triple H putting his career on the line makes it interesting, but the real story in this match is how Brock Lesnar will be in the ring. I can see him going after the WWE Champion after Wrestlemania, but he has to destroy Triple H to do that.
So do you really think that Triple will be done after Wrestlemania? I didn't think so.
Prediction: This will be a bloody, old school match with Triple H getting the win after he hits Brock with the sledge hammer. Unless Shawn Michaels turns on him...Curious
C.M. Punk Vs The Undertaker
Not only is C.M. Punk the best wrestler in the world, he is also the best bad guy in the business today. The way he has used the death of Paul Bearer into the storyline is amazing.
We all know that Punk will do a great job working with the Undertaker, the big question as it always when Taker is in Wrestlemania is...Will the streak finally come to an end.
What the Undertaker has done at Mania will never be accomplished by any other wrestler. Nothing lasts forever, and the streak will come to an end
Prediction: The streak will come to an end eventually but not on Sunday, as much as I would love to see Punk end the streak and become and instant legend, it's not going to happen. The Undertaker will never lose at Wrestlemania.
The Rock v John Cena
