WrestleMania 29 is supposed to be the biggest event of the year for WWE and one that fans do not want to go home disappointed about.
Last year, many fans felt let down by the length of time of a certain world title match. There are situations that WWE fans are hoping unfold at this year’s WrestleMania, which may include a cash-in by Dolph Ziggler and a heel turn by Randy Orton. If these actions don’t take place, fans may in fact be going home disappointed.
Let’s investigate these situations that may lead to WWE disappointing fans at WrestleMania 29.
Mr. Money in the Bank Dolph Ziggler has been holding onto his briefcase for nearly eight months, which has caused many fans to speculate that the cash in will come at WrestleMania. Fans may be disappointed if Alberto Del Rio or Jack Swagger leaves MetLife Stadium as the World Heavyweight Champion.
John Cena won a Money in the Bank briefcase the same night Ziggler did, but cashed in shortly after against CM Punk at Raw 1000. Since then, fans have been speculated when Ziggler would cash in. As each pay-per-view of late 2012 and early 2013 has neared, there have been tons of articles questioning whether or not it's time for Ziggler to cash in.
If Ziggler does cash in at WrestleMania, he would be the first Superstar to do so. If he doesn’t cash in at WrestleMania, it will disappoint many members of the WWE Universe.
Randy Orton Does Not Turn Heel
Long before Dolph Ziggler won the World Heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank briefcase, WWE fans have been speculating when Randy Orton would turn heel again. WrestleMania 29 would seem to be a great opportunity for Orton to turn heel, but fans could be left frustrated again.
Orton has not been quiet about his desire to turn heel. At the same time, Orton’s character has not been nearly as successful since turning babyface. He won the World Heavyweight Championship when he switched from Raw to Smackdown, but has lost many more No. 1 contender matches since then. A heel turn is expected to revitalize Orton’s career and bring him back to the top of WWE like he was in 2009.
However, should Orton not turn heel at WrestleMania 29 it could disappoint those who feel he works better as a bad guy.
Another Really Short World Title Match
Last year’s WrestleMania-opening match is talked about a lot considering how little time it lasted. World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan defended the title against Royal Rumble winner Sheamus, with he Celtic Warrior defeating Bryan after only 18 seconds to win the title. Although the match made history, there were disappointed fans who were hoping for a great match between the two superstars.
It is one thing to make history with such a short world title match, but WWE would be making a huge mistake to do it again. The feud between Alberto Del Rio and Jack Swagger has been built up much more than Sheamus and Bryan’s feud. The latter rivalry had very little build, which may be one of the reasons behind the short match. I won’t even discuss the possibility of The Rock and John Cena’s world title match lasting a short time because that would just be ridiculous. Hilarious, but ridiculous.
WWE would disappoint their fans with yet another 18-second, or similar time, world title match at WrestleMania 29.
