The big milestone thirty years in the making! WrestleMania invades New Orleans in an extravaganza like no other. “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan will host, a Battle Royal will be fought in honor of the memory of Andre The Giant, legends long thought astray from WWE will be entered into the Hall of Fame, and an epic chase for the coveted WWE championship comes to a close. Are you excited for WrestleMania XXX?
NO! I SAID ARE YOU READY????
YES Movement catapults Daniel Bryan at an opportunity to compete for the WWE Championship.
WrestleMania is the one time out of the year that brings out the fanboy (or fangirl) in all of us because there is something marvelous about it. Sure, the last couple of years have been anything but marvelous, excluding some “Match of the Year” moments, yet this WrestleMania feels like it will live up to the hype.
The YES Movement is in full swing, and here we thought WWE had taken a giant deuce on the whole Daniel Bryan push. Or maybe they did, but the fans wouldn’t let up because let’s face it, a WrestleMania with Randy Orton and Batista in the headlines would not do. But before Bryan can even possibly think of entering the main event as the third competitor in the–now–Triple Threat WWE World Heavyweight championship match, he has to defeat Triple H.
We all love Daniel Bryan, but how fair is it really to Randy Orton who defeated John Cena in a unification TLC match, and for Batista who outlasted twenty-nine other competitors to win the 2014 Royal Rumble? We cannot just go with the reasoning because Daniel Bryan is better than them. That just wouldn’t do either.
So the fact that Daniel Bryan or Triple H will compete in two WrestleMania matches is unheard of, and the major focus going into this Sunday. But what about the other matches?
Will The Streak be conquered? Or will The Beast Incarnate rest… in… peace….?
Paul Heyman says he wants vindication because The Undertaker is the reason CM Punk went on his downward spiral, but he also wants vindication because his guy Brock Lesnar was not afforded the opportunity to conquer the WWE in the World championship match.
The Streak, we all know it, is monumental. If there is anyone that can conquer The Streak it is Brock Lesnar–because let’s face it, The Beast doesn’t just simply pin his opponents, he conquers them.
Frankly, if the first encounter between Lesnar and Taker was it until ‘Mania, I would be equally stoked. Like The Great Pumpkin, The Phenom comes around once a year, he delivers a stellar WrestleMania match and continues to keep The Streak intact. What more can you ask for?
The Shield take on Kane and the New Age Outlaws at WrestleMania.
How about The Shield instilling their brand of justice? In a strange turn of events, The Director of Operations Kane stopped The Shield from imploding, and instead he unknowingly provided them a new target–himself.
Kane diabolically set up a false Fatal 4-Way contenders match for the WWE Tag Team championships, which resulted in the decimation of The Shield when the teams of The Real Americans, RybAxel, and 3MB attacked them mid-match. Kane furthered the destruction by enlisting the former 6-time WWE Tag Team Champions of The World!!!
The New Age Outlaws, “Road Dogg” Jesse James and “Bad Ass” Billy Gunn, will join Kane against The Shield in a six-man tag team match, and based on how dominate and vengeful The Shield have been looking in recent weeks, this will be as JBL dubbed it, a Battle of the Ages!
While that whole ruse with the WWE Tag Team championship contenders match was an unexpected twist, the fate of the championships will hang in the balance… on the pre show exclusively on the WWE Network – for only $9.99 not only do you get everything WWE video, the Hall of Fame induction ceremony and WrestleMania, but you also get to see The Usos defend the titles in a Fatal 4-Way.
I don’t agree with two out of the four competing teams because Los Matadores and RybAxel have not earned the right to challenge the champions. The only true challengers walking into WrestleMania are The Real Americans, Jack Swagger and Cesaro. Similar to The Shield, The Real Americans were on the verge of imploding but thanks to the yoda-like guidance of Zeb Colter, The Real Americans are on the same page and have the unmatched potential to become the new WWE Tag Team champions. But that is not to discredit The Usos who have had a fantastic showing with an incredible victory story over The New Age Outlaws, whom they defeated to win the championships.
The match should have been a one on one tag team match, but if WWE wants to place four tag teams together at WrestleMania, I say get some tables, find some ladders, throw in some steel chairs, and let’s have ourselves a TLC match!
Bray Wyatt has played psychological mind games with John Cena.
How about the co-main event of John Cena defending his legacy against the leader of the Wyatt Family, Bray Wyatt?
John Cena has been talking about the young talents rising up in the WWE, but if they truly wanted to test their abilities to lead the industry, they would have to go through him. Bold words from the poster boy of the WWE for the past twelve years. However, John was probably not expecting that the one who would answer the call would be so deranged.
If you haven’t listened to any of Bray Wyatt’s promos regarding John Cena, you really should take the time and find them on YouTube. Bray reminds me of a young Jake “The Snake” Roberts (WWE Hall of Fame 2014 inductee) because he speaks in a cold, dark and eerie manner–the way you would imagine Dexter’s Dark Passenger to sound.
Although it would be nice for the kids to see their hero safeguard his legacy, Bray Wyatt needs to win this match because it is time for this man to start on his legacy.
Which brings us to the final match, the Vickie Guerrero Invitational.
AJ Lee’s reign as Divas champion may come to a tragic end at WrestleMania.
While this may be the first time that the Divas championship is defended at WrestleMania, the defending and longest reigning champion AJ Lee must go against thirteen other Divas in a single-fall match.
That is such horse crap! AJ Lee’s first and current reign has surpassed the combined record three-time champion Eve Torres, as well as the combined two-time reign of the former longest reigning champion Maryse. Sure, AJ has done some despicable things, but who hasn’t when trying to defend the championship for so long?
We know that JBL cannot wait for AJ to lose the Divas championship, perhaps “The Wrestling God” felt intimidated or slighted by AJ’s bluntness in regards to her competitors and her self-glorification by tattooing the date she won the Divas championship on the back of her neck.
There’s a great chance that AJ will lose the Divas championship at WrestleMania, but there is also an opportunity to surpass the naysayers and go down in history as the greatest of all time. Perhaps the 2014 WWE Hall of Fame inductee Lita might want to come out of retirement for a crack at the Black Widow.
