WWE Wrestlemania 27: Last Minute News, Updates and Potential Spoilers

Chris PolsonContributor IApril 3, 2011

It's about that time.  We're only a few hours away from Wrestlemania 27!  With that being said, let's jump right into the last bit of news and potential surprises before the big night.


Will Shawn Michaels Cost Triple H His Match with The Undertaker?

If you follow HBK on Twitter, you've seen a couple of his recent comments.  It's almost a certainty that Michaels will be at ringside at some point in the match.  Is it possible that he would go against his best friend and help the Undertaker to go 19-0?  Or will he actually help his friend to defeat the man that put him into retirement?

Plus, if you've read about the Hall of Fame, you know that Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman are in Atlanta.  Could the Kliq get involved?  I guess we'll find out soon enough.


Is There Going to Be a Christian Heel Turn to Cost Edge the World Heavyweight Championship?

Recent rumors have been flying around that Christian will cost his buddy Edge the WHC. There had been talks of possibly making the title match a triple threat, but that doesn't look likely at this point.  

I think I'm with most of the IWC at this point and want to see Christian finally get his time in the spotlight. Personally, I would rather see Alberto Del Rio win cleanly and then give Christian a one-on-one match at the next PPV.  But chances are, Del Rio isn't going to be a transitional champion, so it could be a while before "Captain Charisma" gets the ultimate prize.


Was Vladimir Koslov Legitimately Injured During the WWE Axxess Festivities?

Probably not.  But since Kofi Kingston just recently lost the IC title to Wade Barrett, and because he's widely popular, this was a way to get him into a match at the biggest show of the year.  With no Money In The Bank match this year, one of the fan favorites needed something, and this was the way to get him on.  

I'm sure I'm not alone in wondering why the IC or tag titles aren't being defended on the show, but hopefully this match can bring some excitement.


Wrestlemania Battle Royal?

Speaking of getting people on the show, usually every year there's a battle royal involving the superstars that aren't in a match.  If you buy the 'Mania DVDs, it's on there as an extra.  

This year will be no different.  

I doubt they have a second one involving the Divas, since about 98 percent of them aren't on the card.  Unless there's extra time on the card, I guess we're going to have to live with LayCool, Trish and Snooki.  Sigh.


Is Roddy Piper Planning Something for Wrestlemania?

This is another rumor once again started on Twitter.  Piper says he has something special planned, but who knows what that is, if anything at all.  Up until I read this, I didn't think he would even be on the show.

Is there a special "Piper's Pit" planned? Could he be the mysterious Raw GM that we've wanted to see for so long?  Maybe he was just drunk and babbling.  You can never tell with the rowdy one.


That's all for now.  Hopefully everyone will be watching the show tonight.  Enjoy!
