WWE WrestleMania XXIX: Sound off with Your Thoughts
The apex of WrestleMania season has come among us. With many questions left unanswered, I found it fitting to answer questions via Twitter, while giving you—the reader—an opportunity to respond to them via a poll. This is part one of two.
So, without further ado, here is the first set of questions to be answered. On each slide, I will have a poll for everyone to answer in the comment section below.
Best Match of the Night?
@cravewrestling What will be the best match of the night?— Sean (@SMH122) April 3, 2013
Honestly, I don't think that any match will consist of phenomenal technical wrestling. The closest will most likely be Jericho vs. Fandango. The "You Can't Wrestle!" chants Fandango receives are obviously from those who have not followed him in NXT, because he's good.
The best match in my opinion will be Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar. Although I'm not impressed by the rematch, I do believe that with the stipulation of Triple H's career at stake, both will pull out all the stops to make the match memorable. Similar to last year, the addition of Shawn Michaels will benefit the match as well.
Two things I'm sure of: 1) It will be a better match than Summerslam, and 2) We won't see another Goldberg/Lesnar WrestleMania 20 debacle.
Poll question No. 1: What will be the better match—Lesnar/HHH or Jericho/Fandango?
Why Not Have a Battle of the Rhodes?
"@CraveWrestling Why did @WWE miss the opportunity on showcasing @DUSTIN_RHODES1 vs @CodyRhodesWWE as a match at WM29 when Goldust had the biggest pop of all at the Royal Rumble? Would've been a wrestling clinic and pleased old & new school fans."
I was truly hoping that the confrontation from the Royal Rumble would have continued. They were teasing it during WrestleMania season of last year when Dustin appeared on SmackDown. Instead, Cody fell victim to Big Show's "WrestleMania moment," losing the Intercontinental Championship.
Although I like the eight-person tag match he is involved in at WrestleMania, I definitely believe that WWE dropped the ball on this one. Dusty Rhodes could have been the special referee, and it would have been a solid match with a real-life storyline behind it.
Poll question No. 2: Would you rather have seen Cody Rhodes vs. Goldust, or do you prefer his current match?
Will 'Taker and Triple H Lose at WrestleMania?
No, they don't. And they shouldn't make that happen. Both are going to win at WrestleMania. Although there are some that would like for CM Punk to break Undertaker's streak, it is just wishful thinking. Especially after what we've seen with CM Punk's heinous acts against the legacy of Paul Bearer.
Triple H lost at SummerSlam, and WrestleMania will be his chance at redemption. Moreover, if anyone would retire Triple H, it would be Shawn Michaels, not Brock Lesnar. We are not going to see the end of Triple H in the ring come the conclusion of their match.
Poll question No. 3: Should both Undertaker and Triple H lose at WrestleMania?
Will John Cena Turn Heel?
"I'll ask this question that I think is on everybody's mind. Will John Cena turn heel at Wrestlemania?"
This is indeed the big question.
My simple answer is, no. Simply because of his work in the WWE as an ambassador, as well as his merchandise sales. Moreover, he already gets some of the biggest heel heat in the company, and a full turn would just build feuds around top babyfaces (which the WWE already has a deficit of).
Could the WWE pull a swerve and be the leader of the Shield? Yes. Would it be interesting for a bit? Possibly. However, would it be beneficial? Not really. The Shield is doing well as an independent entity, and John Cena leading the stable would tarnish the anti-establishment feel that they are exhibiting.
Poll question No. 4: Should John Cena turn heel at WrestleMania?
