Hell in a Cell: Undertaker vs. Triple H (Referee: Shawn Michaels)

Alfonso: Undertaker

It’s a testament to the storytelling abilities of Triple-H, The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels that there is some doubt as to how this match will end. To be sure, there would be few WrestleMania moments that would be bigger than Triple-H pinning the Undertaker’s shoulders to the mat and getting...

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...

The WWE had one last chance to promote Wrestlemania on their flagship television show last night. Raw was held in Atlanta -- the host city of last year’s Wrestlemania -- at the Philips Arena where just about a year ago the “once in a lifetime match” was made between The Rock and John Cena.

Raw had that “big-time” atmosphere last night just six days before Wrestlemania 28. All night video segments...

Less than two weeks away from WrestleMania, fans are starting to discuss the ever-important match order. As simple as it may seem, making sure each match is correctly slotted on the show can make all the difference. Put a match that gets the crowd going wild in the middle of the show, and risk burning out the audience by the time the last match comes on (See WrestleMania X-8.) Put a world title...

WWE Raw: More talking, less action going into Wrestlemania

Last night’s Raw in Philadelphia featured more of the same: lots of talking and very little action between the stars who make up the three biggest feuds going into Wrestlemania.

It’s evident that The Rock and John Cena are talking circles at this point. The same could be said with Undertaker and Triple H, while the CM Punk-Chris Jericho angle continues to get deeply personal. Let’s start there.

Triple H sent a message to the Undertaker that "The Streak" is over come Wrestlemania 28.

At the house show in Madison Square Garden yesterday, Triple H used the Undertaker's finisher, the Tombstone instead of the Pedigree, on Dolph Ziggler to finish off a six-man tag team match.

We had Josh Stewart at the event yesterday and you can read his review of the show by clicking...

Last night’s Raw was built around the “John Cena Rap vs. The Rock Concert” as the two Wrestlemania opponents squared off in a battle of musical talents. The overall motif of the show made sense as Raw was in Cleveland, the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

I felt Raw was strong but it fell flat compared to the last few weeks, which haven been excellent. The WWE always revs up the product...

WWE Raw: John Cena gets the better of The Rock again

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson yells into the microphone

(Credit: AP )

11:11: Rock pulled a Cena and exited the ring after he said his peace. It was effective when Cena did it last week, but the Rock left Cena in the ring alone and he thrived. He mimicked Rock with bogus notes on his wrist and then hit hard with strong words driving home the point that he has to win at Wrestlemania. Even though Cena didn't dust off one of his raps as I had hoped, he came very close...
