- According to PWInsider, the following matches are scheduled for the WrestleMania 29 main events as of early Monday:

* Sheamus vs. Randy Orton for the World Heavyweight Title

* Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar

* CM Punk vs. The Undertaker

* John Cena vs. The Rock for the WWE Title

– There was speculation on Randy Orton’s status after he lost clean to Wade Barrett on last night’s RAW from Houston. F4Wonline.com reports this is just a part of Orton’s heel turn. He will be facing Antonio Cesaro on this week’s WWE Main Event.

    I don’t need to get over anything. If I’m gonna pay 50 bucks to watch a program I want to get my money’s worth. Since the current WWE roster is not on the caliber of the aforementioned people and are not allowed to reach that status because of the bureaucracy in the front office, I’ll take that card all day long.

    Wrestlemania has always been about seeing epic moments and matches you haven’t seen before or don’t see often. It’s your business if you want to pay $50 for a PPV loaded with matches you see every single week on RAW and Smackdown for free. Myself, I care where my dollars are going. And WWE wonders why PPV buy-rates are so low.

    *smh*

    Jesus, i know that there are a few legends on the card this year. But you want to see 6/10 of the wrestlers on the main card to be legends? (including Rock and Brock). HBK retired 3 years ago, get over it. This is why the IWC are so frustrating. Cant stop living in the past.

  • d_pooch

    Ryback vs Brock seems like an obvious choice that I wouldn’t mind seeing.

  • Raymond Smith

    wait a minute here alberto world champion right then how is sheamus or orton world champion

  • d_pooch

    Punk vs. Taker is the only solid match. Cena vs Taker would be good too, but if they are going with rematches, put Cena vs Brock, since Cena lost the last go around.

    Rock vs HHH makes more sense as a “match for the ages” since they have a long history that started with the IC title, and they haven’t had a match in at least 10 years.

    Other DREAM matches they SHOULD do, but won’t:

    Dolph Ziggler vs Billy Gunn

    Goldust vs Cody Rhodes

  • Scott Davies

    I don’t want to see Sheamus v Orton for the World Title. Give us Dolph v Ryback instead. Something new & more exciting

  • D2K

    I’d pay good money to see that card. So would everyone else. Which is why WWE will do everything in their power to make that card NOT happen.

  • Prince

    This year I’d rather see the top 4 be Ziggler vs. Bryan, Rock vs. Punk, Taker vs. Cena, and Lesnar vs. Ryback.

  • D2K

    I agree 100%. There is now reason for The Rock and Cena to face each other period, let alone for the title. Gimme a break. Their match last year was mediocre at best.

    If Punk loses to The Rock what point would their be for him to face the Undertaker? The Undertaker has already beaten CM Punk before on Smackdown. The streak that Punk has right now makes him a formidable threat to the Undertaker. Without it, this would be just another match. If they are gonna take the title off of Punk and give it to The Rock, then why not shake things up and have The Rock defend the title against Brock Lesnar. The last time The Rock had the WWE title it was Brock Lesnar whom took it from him.

    Then maybe have John Cena challenge The Undertaker. I’d rather see Punk in a match where he can actually wrestle. Perhaps a Punk vs. Ziggler match. Have Ziggler with Flair in his corner vs Punk wih Heyman in his corner. Maybe that could be a start of a new feud with a new Four Horseman with Flair in the J.J. Dillion role with Ziggler, The Miz, Christian, and Daniel Bryan versus the new Dangerous Alliance. Punk, Lesnar, Shield, and perhaps Brodus Clay as the heavy.

    Hopefully that won’t be Takers last match and he faces Cena at WM30
    WM 30 Hopeful Card
    Taker vs Cena
    Punk vs SCSA
    Rock vs Brock
    Ziggler vs Bryan
    HHH vs HBK

  • JohnCena33

    CM Punk vs Undertaker would be a good match in the Streak vs Streak style where we could see Taker win, then lights go out, and belt is in the middle of the ring and he is gone forever.

  • Cboz78

    Rock vs Undertaker sounds better to me, and not for the WWE Title because CM Punk should still be champion.

  • James

    Wow. The most pointless Mania of all time.

    No way Taker will lose. No way HHH will lose again to Brock. No way Cena will lose again to Rock.

    Well done. Ruined mania already. Oh and what happened to Rock vs Cena being once in a lifetime. Done with this company if this actually happens.

  • Nigger

    I thought it would be a triple threat WHC match with Ziggler cashing in at the beginning of the match or declaring he’d enter the WM match at the EC ppv… I don’t really get the title changing hands to the Big Show and ADR, Sheamus should have held it longer, lost it to Orton at the RR and then Sheamus enters the rumble and wins, Orton retains at EC and set up that triple threat at mania.

    I also have to agree with everyone who says Punk should keep the strap until he faces The Undertaker. I would have thrown Ryback in the mix with The Rock and John Cena by having The Rock enter the RR as well after losing to Punk clean, have a stare down between Rock and Cena, and then Ryback hits the ring, eliminates them both right before the Shield comes out, destroys Ryback and Sheamus brogue kicks him out… #1 contender EC match for the WWE title at WM29 with Ryback, John Cena, The Rock, Daniel Bryan, Kane and The Undertaker; The Rock, John Cena and Ryback all sabotage each other leading to their match at WM; the three remaining guys pull a return of the Jedi with Kane watching on as Taker whips Bryan’s ass and the Kane throws him out leading to Bryan rolling up Kane and Taker eventually beating Bryan. Punk vs. Ziggler for the WWE title teasing Ziggler possibly walking out of WM with both belts but losing and then declaring that he’s entering the WHC match at WM.

    And I don’t give a damn about HHH and Bork Lazer

  • Prince

    Great, going with the 4 most predictable matches ever. Pretty boring. The only match I wanna see is the Punk vs. Taker match, because I haven’t seen it before. I’d rather see Rock and Lesnar face different people, or even each other. And the WHC match should have Ziggler in it in some fashion.

  • Dave

    I just feel that Taker, Punk would be a better fit for the WWE title match. I know WWE wants Rock vs Cena 2. But does it really need the title to be a massive match?
    Taker vs Punk would be the 500 day WWE Championship Streak of CM Punk, vs the 20-0 Wrestlemania Streak of The Undertaker. I just think Streak vs Streak would be far more marketable as a Championship match. And leave Cena and Rock to the passing of the torch lovefest that it will inevitably turn out to be.

    Hopefully Cesaro beats him as well, cause Cesaro is a machine.
