Wrestlemania is looking like:
The Rock vs. John Cena
Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar
Undertaker vs. CM Punk
Sheamus vs. Randy Orton
Dolph Ziggler vs. Chris Jericho
Daniel Bryan vs. Kane
Ryback vs. Big Show

WWE always like to pay homage. here is my guess of what is going to happen on the road to wrestlemania....but first some history:

Dolph Ziggler gave out the hint tonight to "unify the titles"
The Rock was the last Unified champion, wrestling on both brands before Brock Lesnar beat him at Summer Slam 2002.
The Big Show prevented Cena from winning the WWE championship

and now what im guessing

Cena vs Ziggler for a contract vs contract match. If ziggler wins he gets to face rock at Wrestlemania.
If Cena wins he gets Dolphs MITB contract.
Cena wins.
Big Show beats ADR in a cage match, but has been beaten heavily. actually a clean win for big Show.
Cena comes out and cashes in against Show (the guy who cost him the wwe championship all the way when CM punk turned heel against the rock)

Wrestlemania: Cena vs Rock

Cena wins, unifies belts.

Rock and Cena hug in the middle of the ring next night on Raw. The rock tells Cena he has a present for him and to toss those 2 belts out and bring out a belt with meaning.

The Rock gives John Cena the WWF belt that the Rock carried for most of his career until he retired in 2002.

seem plausible enough?

why is anyone upset, let alone surprised? cm punk's reign was quite boring, and many fans blame that on everyone but punk, yet have no comment when ratings shoot up for the rock. their royal rumble match was pretty boring, but now that punk isn't champion i may tune in more often. he has been by far the most overrated thing in wrestling for a while now. his whole gimmick is that he's edgy and speaks the truth about wrestling politics, as if we didn't have an entire era based around that over a decade ago. we know wrestling is fake, so its almost insulting that wwe pushed him with that gimmick as if he is somehow shooting, when he's just as much apart of the script as all he's "shoots" about. he hasn't been all that entertaining since the straight edge stable was dropped.

ziggler is fun in the ring, but he, like most of the roster, has no personality. "showoff", "cocky"...that's generic heel 101.

hate him or love him, ryback is money...assuming they do it right. wwe has never liked goldberg types (despite what you think of cena), which unfortunate because ryback should be running rampant as intercontinental or u.s. champion.

r truth, perhaps the diamond in the rough for wwe. he'll most likely never be taken advantage of though.

Not often is a diamond in the rough used to describe someone as old as truth.
But I would like to see him drop the jimmy angle and get a heel main event shot.

Watching todays Raw, the shield reminds of an old group. can't hit the nail in the coffin though. APA?

I still can't believe that WWE has had to rely on older wrestlers like Rock and Lesnar to put up a legit product. Hopefully we get at WM some type of a Lesnar vs. Triple H match with Heyman and Vince in the corners.

I want out of WM to come out Jericho as World Champ and Cena as WWE champ.
