What match should close out Wrestlemania 27?

One of the biggest debates each year is what should be the final match at Wrestlemania. It’s a guaranteed conversation starter among wrestling fans and an easy blog post to write up. So, here we go.

We're getting closer and closer to the biggest show of the year, and last night's Raw took several more steps toward WrestleMania XXVII.

Here are some thoughts:

. I very much enjoyed the hype for the big Undertaker - Triple-H showdown. A lot of people assumed that Shawn Michaels would be the lynchpin for the feud, with the storyline of Triple-H looking to avenge the defeat of his best...
