WrestleMania 28 Predictions: Best Possible Outcomes for Main-Event Matchups
WrestleMania is the pinnacle of everything that WWE does. All of the business and storylines that run throughout the year are just ways to get us all to the greatest spectacle in wrestling. That is why the results of this show matter more than at any other time during the year.
Specifically, the top matches on the show have to be settled the right way. There can be no doubt or screw-job finishes. WWE builds its product on those kinds of endings all year long. This is the one show where you need definitive winners.
Now that we have arrived at WrestleMania, or are at least close to it, here are the best outcomes for the three top matches on the show.
WWE Championship: CM Punk (c) vs. Chris Jericho
This is the one match of the three that could go either way and there wouldn't be any real backlash. Punk has been on a roll lately. He is the longest reigning WWE champion since The Miz held the belt for 160 days in late 2010 through early 2011.
Jericho has not had a lot of time in the spotlight since returning in January, so this would be a golden opportunity to put the title on him to get some heat and give the fans a rematch at Extreme Rules on April 29.
In the end, the best result is to keep the title on Punk. Jericho doesn't need the rub at this point in his career. Punk is going to be around a lot longer, and a win in a great match on the biggest show of the year could make him into a bigger star.
Winner: CM Punk
Hell In a Cell: The Undertaker vs. Triple H, with Shawn Michaels as Special Referee
Which Outcome Is Least Likely To Happen?
The key to this match is not who will win, as we already know that. All we have to invest ourselves in is how they get there.
Hell In a Cell was an interesting stipulation on its own, but when you add Shawn Michaels to the mix, everything goes up in the air. He could try to put over his BFF, Triple H.
He could be so offended by Triple H taking the match because Undertaker said HBK was better, that Triple H eats a superkick.
He could also do nothing besides count the pinfall.
Undertaker is going over, and Shawn Michaels is going to help him get there. Expect a lot of violence, brutality and, yes, blood.
The Rock vs. John Cena
Here is the one that fans will be debating about for a long time, no matter what the outcome is.
Rock is wrestling his first singles match in nine years. Cena is the face of WWE today. Who wins?
There may be a large contingent of fans who want to see Cena go over, because it's "the right thing" since Rock is leaving after April 3.
However, most fans in Miami and all over the world are paying to see Rock win. Cena is not the star they want to see standing tall when WrestleMania is over.
Rock should be the one with his hand raised at the end of the show. No one is going to think less of Cena, which is the only excuse I have heard for why he has to win.
Winner: The Rock
