I am proud to say I have been to a Wrestlemania. Wrestlemania 28 in Miami to be exact. I bought the gold package, so I got to go to Axxess, met John Cena at the Axxess meet and greet, Hall of Fame, Wrestlemania, and Raw. I have to say if you are a hard core wrestling fan you must do this before you die. It is well worth the couple grand you spend to buy a package and fly there. My husband and I went at a great time. He had always wanted to see The Rock wrestle in the ring and I always wanted to go to Miami so it worked out. I even went as far as buying additional tickets to meet John Cena. Those are hard to come by but waking up early and getting onto Ticketmaster was well worth it. Overall everyone should try and experience this “Once in a Lifetime” opportunity.
After hearing Wrestlemania was headed to the Bayou I was almost ready to buy tickets until I heard they were headed to San Francisco the following year. I may head there next year. Every year Wrestlemania gets bigger and better but are the matches up to Wrestlemania standards? Those epic match ups that we will be talking about for years to come. I’m somewhat skeptical about what we are going to see April 6th. As of now I have the updated cards. I’m sure these will change after I post this. Lets get started analyzing these matches.
Randy Orton Vs. Batista vs TBD Triple Threat Match for the World Heavyweight Championship and Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H Singles match for the third spot in the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Triple Threat Match
I’m not too thrilled about this main event. Yes i’m glad Batista made his epic come back but I have a feeling it will be short lived like The Rock stated “I’m back and I’m never leaving.” Guess what Rocky never came back after New York last year. Batista is who I favor in this match between he and Randy, however with this TBD opponent with the match between Triple H vs. Daniel Bryan. Now i’m not a huge fan of Daniel Bryan but the WWE universe is and everyone loves an underdog. When he had the title stripped from him after Summer Slam 2013 I felt bad for the guy. You work your ass off to get to the top just for the Authority to take it away from you. Yeah that sucks and it has been a great story to build up to this. It would be wrong to deny Bryan his gold after almost a year of hell. That is a Wrestlemania moment. The Goat Face, Yes Movement leader fighting all those who tried to keep him down, that’s golden. So Bryan having to go up against the man who has been denying him his gold is epic. I believe he will beat Triple H and go to face Batista and Randy and ultimately beat them for the title.
My Prediction: Bryan wins it all
The Undertaker Vs. Brock Lesnar
The Undertaker and his streak. You know The Undertaker honestly has the best job in the industry. We don’t see you for a whole year, you show up to a few shows to build the hype for Wrestlemania, wrestle at the biggest show of the year and we don’t see you until the following year. It almost feels like Christmas. The Taker has earned this though. He is one hell of a competitor and definitely a fan favorite. When I heard that Lesnar was taking on the streak I was disappointed. No disrespect to Lesnar he’s a bad ass, and he is one hell of a fighter a perfect opponent to take on the streak, maybe even breaking the streak but Lesnar was not my first choice to take on the Taker. I was honestly hoping The Takers opponent would be John Cena. I am a huge Cena fan and i’m glad he isn’t being forced on everyone in the main event it’s interesting to see him doing mid level card work. I think it’s important for some of the younger guys to work up the latter without forcing Cena so maybe that’s why he’s working with the Wyatts. Nonetheless, I think Cena would have been a great choice to take the Taker if the rumors are true this is Takers last year. I know the streak has held up well over time but I really don’t think it will go unbeaten I have to believe the best send off is someone breaking that streak and sending the Taker to retirement. Now last years match has the taker destroyed, he had a long recoup time after last years match so I can’t even begin to think how it’s going to be after he faces Lesnar. Lesnar is brutal and tough. I honestly hope Taker doesn’t break anything after this match because Lesnar is capable of anything. I am a little worried but I don’t think the steak will be broken this year.
My Prediction: Undertaker
John Cena Vs. Bray Wyatt
I’m disappointed as a Cena fan about this matchup. I think seeing Cena face the Shield would have been more entertaining. I don’t know what it is about the Wyatts that just doesn’t get me excited, maybe it’s because they look like crazy moonshiners from North Carolina, it dosen’t make me feel intimidated, especially the stupid lamp they light then blow out then they come out with a battery operated lamp and they sit on the ramp with a rocking chair from Crackle Barrel. The Wyatts don’t do it for me. Im not scared or intimidated and the fact they have John Cena playing a coward who has let Bray get into his head. It’s just cheap. I’m glad they don’t have Cena going after the title but reducing him to this is kind of ridiculous. Again him facing the Shield or Ryback would have been more interesting. The Wyatt’s are new and they need that push and Cena is just the right person to make it happen but to make this a Wrestlemania match, it’s just not up to par to Wrestlemania standards.
My Prediction: John Cena
AJ Lee vs Naomi vs Cameron vs Brie Bella vs Nikki Bella vs Natalya vs Eva Marie vs Emma vs Aksana vs Alicia Fox vs Summer Rae vs Rosa Mendes vs Layla vs Tamina Snuka a 14 Diva Single Fall “Vickie Guerrero Invitational” match for the WWE Divas Championship
I have never been a fan of AJ Lee, honestly i’m very surprised she has held on to the title for as long as she has. There are far better Divas in the company who would be better at holding that title. I think AJ ‘s gimmick has always annoyed me, skipping around the ring, even when she was the “GM” of Raw. She doesn’t have that something special that previous Divas champs possessed. With “Total Divas” being aired on E! it has brought a new spark and a new interest in this dying division. I can easily name the top divas in the division: Naomi, Natalya and Tamina are strong competitors the way every Diva should aspire to be. Now a days this division makes me miss what it use to be Trish, Lita, Chyna etc. Today’s Divas don’t match up, it’s truly devastating. So I’m rooting for one of my favorite hard working Divas.
My Prediction: Natalya
The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns) vs. Kane and The New Age Outlaws (Road Dogg and Billy Gunn) Six Man Tag Team Match
The Shield against some old guys… Yeah I know the New Age Outlaws were a big hit back in the day, but really? I feel this is a filler match. Not excited about this so I’m not diving into this too much.
My Prediction: The Shield
The Usos (Jimmy and Jey Uso) vs. The Real Americans (Cesaro and Jack Swagger) vs Ryback and Curtis Axel vs. Los Matadores (Diego and Fernando)
The Usos are awesome and i’m glad they are finally champions, however I favor Goldust and Cody. So the Usos facing another gimmick I find annoying The Real Americans and the Matadores aka Primo and Unico. Another filler match.
My Prediction: The Usos
Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal 30-man battle royal for the Andre the Giant Memorial Trophy
A great way to commemorate the last 30 years of wrestling however this idea for a battle royal at a Wrestlemania is not new. Host Hulk Hogan announced this match on Raw and showed the audience the trophy. A nice touch to add some nostalgia but this is the 30th Wrestlemania the celebration should be huge. This isn’t.
My Prediction: Sheamus
So the question remains, Is this Epic or an Epic Fail. With the launch of WWE Network it will feel good not spending $80 on this pay per view. Like I said this is the 30th Wrestlemania, it is a celebration of the past 30 years It is suppose to feel exciting, the best event ever. I’m not feeling it. Im sure new cards will be added after Monday Night Raw but I feel this is not shaping up to be epic. WWE is losing it’s touch. I can’t put my finger on it just yet but I have a feeling it’s going to fail. Like Wrestlemania 27 in Atlanta.
My Prediction: Epic Fail
