The time has almost arrived for WWE's biggest event of the year, WrestleMania.

This is the one night when even the most casual of wrestling fans and those who gave it up years ago all have to tune in.

WrestleMania features the biggest wrestlers and the biggest feuds. With so many pay-per-views during the year, many events often lack the proper buildup because there's just not enough time. That certainly hasn't been a problem because WrestleMania XXIX has been building for months.

Here's where and when you can find WrestleMania.


When: Sunday, Apr. 7, at 7 p.m. ET

Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, N.J.

Watch: PPV through your cable provider

If you need some compelling reasons to watch, these three reasons should suffice.


Can John Cena avenge his WrestleMania XXVIII loss against The Rock?

Likely for the second year in a row, John Cena and The Rock will close WrestleMania. It's a match you'll only see Twice in a Lifetime.

All joking aside, it's always fun to see two stars from different eras face off. While The Rock is unquestionably a star in present day, Cena is the guy now, despite losing last year. He's the golden boy in WWE and will ascend to his throne once again after Sunday.

Whatever you hear about the 2012 Cena slump, forget about it. Last year was a hugely successful year for the star. He needs this win if only to finally get a win against The Rock and take home the WWE Title again.


Will Triple H be forced to retire?

In what would be one of the biggest reverberations ever felt through the industry, Triple H could go from wrestling two matches a year to none if he loses to Brock Lesnar.

Triple H is a legend, and losing a retirement match would allow him to have a big sendoff on Raw tomorrow night or sometime in the future. Aside from that, having him retire leaves little else in terms of impact on the product.

Lesnar and Triple H had a so-so match at SummerSlam, but they might have worked out the kinks in order to really go at it on Sunday. Triple H has always excelled in matches with no rules, and Lesnar is presented as a shoot-fighting monster who will do whatever it takes to win.


Will Dolph Ziggler finally cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase?

You probably could have copied and pasted this question for any of the last seven PPV previews. Dolph Ziggler has gotten close but never fully cashed in his Money in the Bank briefcase for a World Heavyweight Championship opportunity.

His case is going to expire in a couple of months, so it's only a matter of time before he eventually gets his chance.

The Jack Swagger-Alberto Del Rio feud has really fizzled, so having Ziggler win the title could be a smart move. Having either guy win could start a great, fresh feud. Ziggler could either turn face and take on a xenophobic Swagger, or he could stay a heel and clash with babyface Del Rio.
