WrestleMania 28 is shaping up to be one of the best lineups in recent 'Mania history. We already have several matches lined up and the night is still over a month away.

Arguably, the biggest draw of the night is John Cena vs. The Rock. The two have been in a war of words over the past year and they will finally put their feud to rest on the biggest night of the year.

We also have the yearly challenge to the streak as Undertaker is set to square off against Triple H inside Hell in a Cell where they will have their third match at the event.

This is of course on top of two title matches: CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho for the WWE Championship and Daniel Bryan against Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship.

Every one of these matches will get main-event treatment heading into the event, which begs the question: Are there too many main events?

Four big matches is great for fans from the aspect of getting the most bang for their buck, but it also goes against a long standing philosophy that there should really be one match that is the main attraction.

Some might say that Cena vs. Rock is the main attraction, but there are people who will pay just to see Undertaker continue his streak.

On a night where fans have so many things to get excited about it seems likely that the crowd may be more dead towards the end of the night.

I have seen this happen a million times, there is a match that is five-star quality and it gets the fans pumped up, but then the main event of the night rolls around and they are tired and just want the night to be over.

'Mania is always a spectacle so chances are good that fans will be prepared to cheer and lose their voices, but it is also possible that the closing match won't get the reaction it deserves because fans have spent their energy.

I am of the belief that a PPV fight card should be booked where there is one big match at the end of the night and several other matches before which build upon other feuds and make mid-card talent step up their game.

This is a more old-fashioned view, but it is one that has worked for a long time and has produced the best results.

What do you think, is WWE booking WrestleMania with too many main-event matches?
