WWE WrestleMania XXVIII

WWE: WrestleMania 28 (2012): The Bleacher Report Prediction League

Josh LoganAnalyst IApril 1, 2012

Finally, the Bleacher Report Prediction League has come back to Bleacher Report!

I sincerely apologize for the long hiatus, but the wait is now over, and once again we will find out who is the smartest and/or luckiest of them all.

WrestleMania 28 is here, and with it comes some tantalizing matchups.

John Cena vs. The Rock
Chris Jericho vs. CM Punk
Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan
Kane vs. Randy Orton
The Undertaker vs. Triple H (No. 3)
Big Show vs. Cody Rhodes

And some not-so-tantalizing matches...

Team Teddy vs. Team Johnny
The Divas Match
And a triple threat Tag Team Title match before the show begins

The build-up this year has been so/so with some interesting twist and turns, but the show itself still can be one of the best WrestleManias in history.

So now, let's get on with the league!

First some rules to help you understand the league. (More rules will be posted later in a separate post.)

Anyone can join the league at any time! If you miss this pay-per-view or couldn't make it, that's okay—you can join in on the next one.

Each PPV will be worth up to 30 points, no match will be worth more than five points, and there will not be bonus questions this year.

I would like for those of you who respond to give the reason behind your predictions. This way we can create more debate and conversation for the league.

And if there is debate, please be respectful to your fellow league competitors, or you will be removed.
