WWE Champion CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho

Alfonso: Chris Jericho

It looks likely that this feud will continue through at least another pay per view or two, so it makes sense to put Jericho over in this bout, and have Punk chase him for the title for the next couple months. If given the green light, these two could easily have a show-stealing performance, and a match of the year contest....

Wrestlemania 28 predictions: Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus

World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus

Alfonso: Sheamus

With the talent pool being so shallow on the Smackdown side, WWE has been trying hard to get Sheamus over as an A-list attraction on the blue brand. So all indications are that this match will be the coronation of “The Great White” as Smackdown’s new flag bearer. As talented as both men are—especially Bryan—I’m not...

Randy Orton vs. Kane

Alfonso: Randy Orton

I believe WWE has already begun advertising a three-way world title match at Extreme Rules with Orton taking on Daniel Bryan and Sheamus. So it looks like this match will be one and done, in which case it makes no sense to put Kane over. Orton hits the RKO and makes relatively quick work out of the Big Red Monster. Anthony: Randy Orton

Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes vs. Big Show

Alfonso: Cody Rhodes

With so many babyfaces going over in the card, this seems like the ideal opportunity to throw the heels a bone, and give some momentum to one of WWE’s most promising young mid-carders. Big Show won’t be hurt at all by putting Rhodes over in this one, and Rhodes can pick up a fairly important win. Anthony: Cody...

Team Teddy vs. Team Laurinaitis

Alfonso: Team Teddy

This may be the hardest of all the night’s matches to pick. On one hand, WWE seems to be pleased with the Laurinaitis character, and I can see Vince wanting to feature him on Smackdown as well. It could also be that Long, who officially becomes a senior citizen later this year, is looking to come off the road, even if he does only...

  Kelly Kelly, Maria Menounos vs. Beth Phoenix, Eve   Alfonso: Team Menounos

This one will be kept short, and likely slotted before the night’s main event, to give the crowd a chance to catch its breath before Rock-Cena. WWE will be looking to get some highlights on Extra come Monday, so it would make sense that they’d have Menounos score the pinfall and celebrate in the ring after...

Who knew John Morrison had personality? Or rapping skills? The former Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion spoofed the Undertaker and Triple H in a rap video days before their Hell in a Cell match at Wrestlemania 28. In the video, Morrison dons a prosthetic nose and wig to imitate Triple H. For Undertaker, Morrison sports a reddish goatee with a black hat and trench coat. Another man dressed...

The WWE production team always does a stellar job with their entrance sets, especially at Wrestlemania when they have much more room. A photo of the WrestleMania 28 set at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens was leaked online yesterday. Plam trees are visible by the entrance ramp and the WWE will once again use a canopy over the ring in case Mother Nature doesn't cooperate. Under the canopy there...

One of the biggest debates among fans the week of Wrestlemania is the match order for the pay per view. To many fans, the pecking order of matches is very important as it symbolizes importance as the show makes its way toward the main event. Yet, a Wrestlemania card is not always booked from least important to most important match. If that was the case, then why was the Women’s Title at Wrestlemania...
