With only 16 days remaining until the event, the 28th edition of WrestleMania has the potential to be arguably the greatest in the long history of the WWE’s biggest pay-per-view of the year when it invades Sun Life Stadium on April 1.
As the days continue to click off, the card for WrestleMania looks to be all but settled, with multiple championship matches and two generational main event clashes.
From Wrestling News Source:
Below is the updated card for WWE WrestleMania 28, which will take place on pay-per-view on April 1 from Miami, Fla.
John Cena vs. The Rock
WWE Championship Match: CM Punk (c) vs. Chris Jericho
World Heavyweight Championship Match: Daniel Bryan (c) vs. Sheamus
Hell in a Cell Match: Triple H vs. The Undertaker (Special Guest Referee: Shawn Michaels)
Intercontinental Championship Match: Cody Rhodes (c) vs. Big Show
12-Man Tag Team Match: Team Teddy Long (United States Champion Santino Marella, R-Truth, and four members TBA) vs. Team John Laurinaitis (David Otunga, Mark Henry, Christian, and three members TBA) (The winning team's General Manager will become the permanent General Manager of both RAW SuperShow and SmackDown)
Divas Tag Team Match: Divas Champion Beth Phoenix & Eve Torres vs. Kelly Kelly & "Extra" Co-Host Maria Menounos
Just like a lot of fans, I think this year’s WrestleMania will be one of the best in the history of the WWE with a card stacked with matches that will definitely have the fans into it.
The match that I want to see the most is the Hell in a Cell match between Triple H and the Undertaker, as this could be the final match for both the Phenom and the Game in their active wrestling career.
I really hope that the WWE doesn’t have Triple H end the undefeated streak of the Undertaker, so that he could potentially ride off into the sunset with the greatest record in the company and wrestling in general.
With the new angle brought up by Chris Jericho last Monday about CM Punk’s father’s alleged alcoholism, I think the WWE Championship match between the two superstars both claiming to be the “Best in the World” will be the best title match of the entire event.
After a year of build up for the match, there is nothing else that can be said about the main event showdown between the Rock and John Cena, as the two superstars have gotten very personal in their remarks about each other in recent weeks.
While a little bored at first about the tag team match for control of Raw and Smackdown, I think the match could be pretty good as the teams will be filled with superstars not in any matches on the card like Alberto Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston, among others from the red and blue brands.
As for the newly added Divas tag team match, I really don’t think this kind of contest is worth the stage of WrestleMania as it seems more like a match that would be featured on Raw SuperShow instead of the biggest PPV of the year.
Even though there are a few matches that puzzle me why they’re on the card, I’m extremely excited about this year’s WrestleMania and can’t wait to sit down and watch it on April 1.
So Bleachers, what do you think of the card for WrestleMania and where does it stack up against past cards through the 27-year history of the WWE’s premier pay-per-view event?
