WWE WrestleMania 29: Questions Left Unanswered After Monday Night Raw
Rowdy Roddy Piper used to say, "Just when they think they got the answers, I change the questions." He could not have been more prophetic when it came to professional wrestling.
With WrestleMania 29 less than a month from happening, we still have some unresolved issues in the WWE. Matches to be made, feuds to be determined and the curious case of the Bella Twins returning to Raw,
Thank you, Vickie Guerrero.
Honestly, I don't think we are in any better position to define how good the pay-per-view will be than we were last week. Except for the fact that CM Punk became more vile and hated when he not only interrupted The Undertaker's tribute to Paul Bearer, but when he stole the urn.
Only in wrestling can a prop like that mean so much.
While some questions have been answered, new ones have been asked and not resolved.
Here are questions we still have following Raw.
Does Paul Bearer's Death Bring Kane and Undertaker Together One Last Time?
I was wondering this once I saw the notice of Bearer's death. The fact that both The Undertaker and Kane have the connection to Paul Bearer means we may see Punk battle both of them with Kane softening up Punk before WM 29.
While Undertaker and Punk is a good matchup, I personally think Kane and Punk is a better match for both Raw and WrestleMania.
The Shield Now Competes in Singles Matches?
I spoke too soon. We all knew it wouldn't be long before we saw all three of The Shield members attack The Big Show.
At some point, however, there will be a need for singles titles to be held, and that means singles matches.
I thought we might see Roman Reigns in the match, not Seth Rollins. Either way, this sets up nicely for the six-man tag team match with Randy Orton and Sheamus.
Is There Anything Hotter Than Alberto Del Rio and Jack Swagger?
It is a feud that punches all the hot buttons
WE THE PEOPLE.
There are so many fan factions that identify with this feud for many different reasons. Vince McMahon isn't afraid to punch the buttons and wrestlers will speak their "scripted" minds.
The skits are good, the replies are humorous and serious.
Yes, this feud works. For all the right reasons.
Why Haven't We Seen More of Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler?
I would love to see Daniel Bryan in a program with Dolph Ziggler.
Take away the outside interference with AJ Lee and Big E. The match worked and was one of the better segments of the night.
The WWE takes a lot of heat for moving Raw to three hours, but that gives us a chance to see different matchups and feuds potentially happen.
This one could be as good as Bryan and CM Punk was last year.
Will We See the New Age Outlaws Win the Tag Team Titles?
That would be awesome, wouldn't it?
The Road Dogg and Billy Gunn can still move around the ring. Why not give them a shot at competing more in the tag team division?
There is a chance that the tag team division can heat up with Rhodes Scholars, Team Hell No, Tensai and Brodus Clay, and the Prime Time Players.
The tag teams are better than we give them credit for. The Outlaws would be a welcomed addition.
What Will the Stipulation Be?
Who knows. But now we have another match to talk about for WrestleMania 29.
I like the fact the match was accepted so quickly and that the jousting can begin. I don't think we will see the two men beating the hell out of each other for the next four weeks, but I can see Paul Heyman and Vince McMahon getting in each other's face again.
What Happens Now That the Bella Twins Are Back?
Not sure, but it is great to see them back in the WWE. It also means one of the twins will be battling with Kaitlyn for the affections of Cody Rhodes.
Who knew the "mustache" would be the one thing that makes women beat the hell out of each other.
Gotta love it.
Is a Ryback-Mark Henry Match Worth Watching?
Let's hope so. 3MB would say it is worth its weight in punishment.
I love the fact both giants used members of the trio as its personal workout program. Both Henry and Ryback looking mighty impressive.
But does this match rate? I see it as two guys beating the hell out of each other, much like a slobber knocker.
Maybe JR must call this match.
Is Antonio Cesaro Being Held Back?
I think so. While he is a great competitor, he won't truly get over until he beats someone who is a champion, a true superstar or gets beaten by an American wrestler.
Yes, Christian would be an ideal opponent, but why not push the United States champion to face someone like Alberto Del Rio or a rivalry with Randy Orton or Sheamus.
There is some real value in those matches.
Is There Any Doubt John Cena Will Win the WWE Title?
No. Last year, The Rock took the title in Miami.
Now, it's Cena's turn at redemption. This is a match I really do not like, but the WWE needs it now more than ever. The WWE needs John Cena to be the champion moving forward for many reasons.
And most of it includes a bridge that resumes the feud between CM Punk and Cena.
If it gets back to the match we saw a few weeks ago on Raw, then I am all for it.
