The most highly anticipated day in professional wrestling is behind us, as WrestleMania 29 is officially in the books. Two titles changed hands, as John Cena became the WWE champion and The Miz won the Intercontinental Championship.
The question is, what is the next best feud for every champion who walked away from WrestleMania victorious?
There is no denying how much things could change between now and Extreme Rules. With that being said, there are feuds worth creating for every champion who took part in this 'Mania madness.
So what should be up next?
Next Feud: The Rhodes Scholars
By way of pinfall, Kane and Daniel Bryan managed to retain their Unified Tag Team Championship belts at Wrestlemania 29. They defeated Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston during that match, thus eliminating the best form of competition available.
The only logical step is for Team Hell No to draw The Rhodes Scholars next.
Cody Rhodes and Damien Sandow have the potential to be the WWE's best heel tag team. From Sandow's microphone mastery to Rhodes' rapidly improving in-ring abilities, they have the gimmick and skill to hold those belts.
More importantly, they could be a real form of competition to Kane and Bryan.
Next Feud: Kofi Kingston
Forgive me for my skepticism, but I simply cannot imagine The Miz remaining face for much longer. As nice as it has been to see a change of scenery, the second-tier heels are as weak as ever and Miz has thrived in such a role before.
So why not bring in everyone's second-tier face, Kofi Kingston?
Kingston will put on a good match, which is always important when it comes to pay-per-view culminations. More importantly, he'll sell well enough for The Miz's heel turn to make an impact.
It's a transitional feud, but one that makes sense.
Next Feud: The Shield
Honestly, is there a wrestler that emerged from WrestleMania looking strong enough to compete for a title? The truth of the matter is, absolutely no one emerged as a powerful enough figure.
Jack Swagger lost to Alberto Del Rio, while Sheamus, Randy Orton and Big Show fell to The Shield—so why not give the latter the ultimate push?
Pick one member of The Shield and give them a shot at the World Heavyweight title. Even if they don't emerge victorious, they're a group with a gang mentality that can emerge scathe free via disqualification without losing momentum.
This will give the WWE a month to properly build its stars back up into world title form.
Next Feud: CM Punk
Let's be honest with ourselves—no main event superstars look strong enough to contend for the WWE championship. Most of them either lost at WrestleMania or won in less-than-encouraging ways.
So why not revisit the John Cena vs. CM Punk feud with the title on the line?
Punk may have lost to The Undertaker, but that's hardly a way to lose your momentum. In fact, Punk's outing at WrestleMania has him looking better than virtually every single non-champion.
So why waste any more time? Let's book the match that everyone wants to see a repeat of.
