Groves of people will show up to watch The Rock and John Cena...again.

Many will tune in to see if CM Punk ends the Undertaker's streak, but I have my eye on a few other Superstars and Divas set to perform at WrestleMania 29.

Don't get me wrong, I'm looking forward to the featured matches as well, but the massive card has the potential to create excitement throughout the event.

Beyond the A-listers (and no, I'm not talking about David Otunga) here's who I think is worth watching on April 7.


The Funkadactyls

OK, I admit half of the reason I'm excited to see Naomi and Cameron in the ring is purely because I find them incredibly sexy. Maybe it's more like 75 percent, but even still, they have proven to be extremely athletic and entertaining in-ring performers.

The Divas division is shameful right now, and even though beauty will always be part of the package, it would be great if the division had some dynamic performers.

I'm hoping the mixed-gender match with the Tons of Funk and the Funkadactyls taking on the Rhodes Scholars and the Bellas help to launch Naomi and Cameron's career.



I was just as irritated as the next fan when Fandango kept delaying his in-ring debut, but obviously that's how I'm supposed to feel about the ballroom-dancing heel.

WWE's creative team has set him up for some serious heat, and now he is being thrust on the grandest stage in the business to show his wrestling chops.

The good thing for him is that he'll be in the ring with a pro like Chris Jericho. Y2J is great at telling a story with in-ring physical theatrics and he sells his opponents' moves well.

Fandango showed a glimpse of his athleticism on Smackdown when he attacked Jericho during and after his match with Jack Swagger.

I believe the two men are going to put on a show.


Big E Langston

More than anything, I'm hoping Langston finds some wrestling attire that fits him better. It looks like his current getup came from the Children's Place.

We've seen him chest-butt Superstars as a means to defend Dolph Ziggler. We've even seen him victimize a few folks with the Big Ending, but we haven't seen him actually wrestle on Raw or Smackdown.

We'll finally get a chance to see him compete when he and Ziggler take on Team Hell No for the tag team titles.

Langston is strong as an ox, and he has an imposing presence. It will be interesting to see what type of pace he performs at in the ring, how he executes his moves and sells others.

That will tell us a lot about what his ceiling is as a singles wrestler.


Follow me, because wrestling is a part of our lives.
