WWE WrestleMania 29 Results: Top 6 Questions Left Unanswered
WrestleMania 29 was a fairly predictable event as most of the expected winners did just that, but there are still questions left unanswered.
One surprising outcome was Mark Henry defeating Ryback. The Big Hungry’s pay-per-view losing streak continues without question.
Randy Orton didn’t turn heel, Dolph Ziggler didn’t cash in Money in the Bank and one of the announced matches was cancelled.
Don’t forget about Jack Swagger’s entrance, or lack thereof.
Now that John Cena won the WWE title, who will he be feuding with next?
Many questions are left unanswered surrounding these situations, and they will be addressed here.
Why Did Ryback Lose on Another Pay-Per-View?
Ryback just can’t catch a break on pay-per-view, losing to Mark Henry in a match many people expected him to win. Mark Henry had absolutely nothing to gain by winning this match.
Despite losing the match, Ryback still delivered Shell Shock to the World’s Strongest Man.
The whole point of this match was for Ryback to deliver his finisher, but how important was it for him to win the match?
Because he has lost so many pay-per-views in a row it was important. This may lead to something big, though. WWE had been building Ryback up to the main event until he began the losing streak.
Could we see the heel turn that was rumored months ago?
Why Didn't Randy Orton Turn Heel?
Another expected event at WrestleMania was a heel turn by Randy Orton, which is another instance that did not occur.
Instead, Big Show solidified himself as a heel in the six-man tag match against The Shield. I never thought Orton was turning heel.
In fact, I thought Big Show would do just what he did. WWE had many chances to turn Orton in the past and chose not to.
Plus, having Orton turn would have been too obvious. Joining The Shield would not have made much sense here, but Orton still could have cost Sheamus and Big Show the match. Although it can be argued that Orton is better as a heel, the same can be said for Big Show.
Why Didn't Jack Swagger Have a Real Entrance?
Jack Swagger’s entrance may have been just the start of punishments for the self-proclaimed real American. WWE fans have witnessed Superstars without a proper entrance on Raw, but WrestleMania?
It would have been difficult to swallow Swagger winning after he drove to the ring during a promotional video. It’s one thing to do it on the weekly television show, but it’s completely different on pay-per-view. It was even more surprising to see Swagger without a proper entrance since it was teased that he would have big entrance.
That just made the whole situation even more disappointing.
Why Was the 8-Person Tag Match Cut from the Show?
Those of you who knew the card well were aware that an eight-person tag match was supposed to take place. Supposed to.
However, after Triple H and Brock Lesnar’s match, WWE concluded WrestleMania 29 with the WWE title match. Tons of Funk, the Funkadactyls, Team Rhodes Scholars and the Bella Twins were cut from the pay-per-view.
The simple answer would be that there wasn’t enough time. However, if that was the case, WWE should have known this in advance.
Don’t advertise and build to a match only to cancel it at the last minute. There was plenty of time during the pre-show that the match could have taken place. With the addition of a post-show, the match could have taken place then too.
Why Didn’t Dolph Ziggler Cash In?
After missing the opportunity to witness Ziggler cash in Money in the Back at WWE TLC 2012, I was hoping to see it happen at WrestleMania 29.
Unfortunately, Alberto Del Rio won his match and immediately left the ring without any sight of Ziggler. Ziggler and Big E Langston lost their tag title match earlier in the night.
At WrestleMania 9, Hulk Hogan lost the tag title match but won the WWF title later on in the night. Ziggler could have had a similar experience at WrestleMania 29, but a cash in would have been too obvious.
There’s always Raw…
Who Will Challenge the New WWE Champion John Cena?
Unsurprisingly, John Cena won the WWE title from The Rock at WrestleMania 29. Now WWE fans can begin to speculate about who will be the first to challenge Cena for the title.
Normally, The Rock would get a rematch since he lost the title. However, his busy schedule may cause a problem. Or perhaps The Rock will get his rematch on Raw.
Either way, a new challenger must be determined for John Cena. One option is Ryback, as he just lost to Mark Henry and could turn heel to feud with Cena. Another option is Ziggler, but he seems headed toward the World Heavyweight title at some point.
