WrestleMania 29 is approaching fast, and the road to WWE’s marquee pay-per-view is starting to reveal some of the bigger matches scheduled for the show.

Despite some of the most well-known names already being confirmed—Triple H returns to fight Brock Lesnar and John Cena will square off against The Rock—there is an entire card left to book.

All of the following dream matches should be added to the show in hopes of adding depth to the card and intriguing more fans to tune in to WWE’s biggest WrestleMania in history.


Chris Jericho vs. Mark Henry

While most fans want to see another chapter in the saga between Chris Jericho and Dolph Ziggler, the best match for Y2J at WrestleMania 29 would be Mark Henry.

Jericho is only coming back to perform an amazing match and put his opponent over, so helping to make Henry look like even more of a monster will be incredibly important if Henry is the man going after the World Heavyweight Championship after WrestleMania.

Jack Swagger will likely be punished for his arrest (h/t TMZ.com)—possibly facing a suspension after April’s PPV—which means a new No. 1 contender will likely be needed for the next show, Extreme Rules.

No wrestler in the WWE deserves to fight for the WHC more than Mark Henry, and add in a possible win over Y2J at WrestleMania, and the World’s Strongest Man would be the unquestionable No. 1 contender.

As crazy as it is to say, Jericho putting Henry over would be amazing to watch.


Team Hell No and Ryback vs. The Shield

The bout the WWE Universe saw at the TLC PPV in 2012 between these six men was one of the best matches of the year, and with little going on in the tag division, Ryback, marred in a losing streak and The Shield as hot as they’ve ever been, rehashing this instant classic is a no-brainer.

Watching Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns take on Daniel Bryan, Kane and Ryback on the WrestleMania 29 stage would be an absolute treat for hardcore wrestling fans, and the brutal action in this match would have even the most causal fan entertained.

These six competitors already proved they can tear the house down and steal the show, but having the opportunity to see this match again and witness the new pre-planned spots would be worth the purchase price alone.

This is a rematch that is 100 percent WrestleMania-worthy.


The Undertaker vs. CM Punk

The writing is on the wall for The Undertaker to face CM Punk at WrestleMania 29.

While a small group of fans will complain that the WWE Universe already saw this feud (2009), the vast majority of the fans understand how big a WrestleMania match with The Undertaker would be to Punk's career.

Punk is a star right now, but after stepping into the ring with The Undertaker on the WrestleMania stage, the former WWE Champion will be a bona fide superstar.

Win or lose, Punk will always be part of The Undertaker's legacy.

There are questions about how well this match will be worked with The Undertaker coming off two reported surgeries (h/t Wrestling Inc.), but the WWE Universe doesn’t have to worry. Punk has carried stars in the past, but The Undertaker is a professional and will do just fine in the ring.

The short build may hurt this bout, but the aura around this potential matchup is something every member of the WWE Universe should be getting behind.
