Update on the WrestleMania 29 Card, Possible Changes & More

– As of this past weekend, the top matches planned for WrestleMania 29 were The Rock vs. John Cena, Jack Swagger vs. Alberto Del Rio, Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar and CM Punk vs. The Undertaker.

Besides Lesnar vs. HHH, it’s said that the rest of the matches could change between now and the pay-per-view. CM Punk could be added to the WWE Title match if The Undertaker doesn’t end up working.

Jack Swagger’s DUI & drug arrest on Wednesday throws another wrench in the plans. No word yet if WWE is planning to pull Swagger from WrestleMania.

A Ryback vs. heel Chris Jericho match has also been planned but there was no tease of the match on RAW when Ryback and Jericho partnered with Sheamus against The Shield. With Jericho off television for several weeks, it appears WWE is going in a different direction with them as well. Sheamus vs. Mark Henry has been discussed, but we’ve yet to see any buildup there.

Top talents like Dolph Ziggler, Randy Orton, Big Show, The Shield, Kane and Daniel Bryan are also without any obvious opponents headed into WrestleMania 29. Despite the lack of direction this year, there’s a feeling that the show will still be a huge success.

    I agree. Cena versus Rock had great build up but the match was a bit boring and the only difference this year is the WWE Championship is on the line. Its obvious Cena is going to win it. Cena versus Punk versus Rock on the other hand is different and it’ll be a lot better, but no matter what Cena is going home as the WWE Champion that night

    tbh I’d be happy either way with Undertaker vs Punk or Cena vs The Rock vs Punk, I mean I don’t wanna see Rock/Cena 2 but I wanna see The Undertaker as well
