The WrestleMania XXVIII card is loaded with epic matches. However, the one match that will steal the show and leave a lasting impression will not be between John Cena vs. The Rock or Triple-H vs. Undertaker or even CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho. 

The match of the night will be the 12-man tag-team match between Team Johnny and Team Teddy.  

WrestleMania always has a “fun” type of match that combines multiple elements. This is one of those matches as you have the serious wrestlers who can put on a well-worked match. Plus, throw in the comedic values to entertain. And finally, the match has a lot riding on it with a deep storyline.  

For those of you forget who is in this show-stealing match, here’s a rundown of the participants. 

Team Teddy: Santino Marella (captain), Great Khali, Zack Ryder, Kofi Kingston, R-Truth and Booker T.

Team Johnny: David Otunga (captain), Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, Mark Henry, The Miz and Drew McIntyre.

Taking a look at both rosters, you’ll see that Team Johnny’s roster is stacked with a ton of championships and is much more talented in the ring. 

First off, you have three former World Heavyweight Champions (Ziggler, Swagger and Henry) and a former WWE Champion (Miz), compared to Teddy’s team that has two former World Heavyweight Champions (Khali and Booker T). 

Next, you have one of the best workers in the company, Ziggler. He is a budding superstar that is near the top of the mid-card on RAW, and could be a WWE Champion by the end of 2012. 

After Ziggler, there are the late additions of The Miz, McIntyre and Booker T. Miz is in an elite category as a heel champion entering the main event at WrestleMania as champion, only to walk out of the match still champion. 

Meanwhile, Booker T is a future WWE Hall of Fame member, and a former WCW World Heavyweight Champion. 

Finally, the match has a number of crowd favorites on Team Teddy as Ryder, R-Truth, Kingston and Marella will have the crowd in Miami constantly involved in the match. These four men can bring the comedic value into the match, while still having a well-worked match. 

This match will leave a ton of lasting memories that will be talked about when the show is over. However, the winner of the match will be the team of John Laurinaitis.
