  • Jeesse

    I heard rumors about Punk and Jericho going on first, is that true Richard? It would hurt the credibility of the WWE Championship.. what’s left ot it..

    • Paul

      I heard it was gonna be sheamus and Bryan

      • AJG316

        You guys know they did that last year with edge and ADR so if they do that again this year that will prove how dume wwe truly is

      • WWE NERD

        I want Sheamus to defeat Daniel Bryan,because Sheamus hasn't won a tittle for like 2 years now.

        • WWE NERD

          But I do want CM Punk to defeat Chris Jericho in 16 days at WrestleMania28!!

        • XKonn247

          You always misspell title! How? It’s everywhere on a WRESTLING site.

    • magruber

      I think Bigshow V Rhodes should go first. Punk V Jericho shouldnt happen till atleast sometime in the second hour.

      Should be

      Big Show V Rhodes
      Divas Match
      Orton V Kane
      Punk V Jericho
      12 Man Tag
      Trple H V Undertaker
      Bryan V Sheamus
      Rock V Cena

      easy as that.

      • H.M.

        Crowd will probably be drained of energy after Taker/Triple H. I'd put that where Punk Jericho is supposed to be. Divas match after Taker/HHH would make sense followed by Punk Jericho.

      • WWE NERD

        One word Agree

  • JDfromNY

    I really think they messed up this card with the addition of Orton vs Kane and the Diva's match…

  • Kleck

    Can’t mess up a card this strong. 4 must see matches between the best the WWE has to offer past and present…bring it on!

  • Hunter

    What do you have against Kane/Orton? Both are far from my favorites, but the match should be cool

  • sportsman6100

    This has potential to be as great as WM X-Seven.

  • thatguy

    you gotta love when people "hear things". I'm PRETTY SURE the only person who knows the line up is Vince.

  • Wwe4L76

    The divas match = time to get food and go on the toilet

    • seakc87

      It’s not going to be long enough to do both.

  • @RatedMKD

    I completely understand her not being on the card, but in a perfect world, Kharma challenging Beth for the title instead of the celebrity bout would've made the card as close to perfect as possible thus far. That said, one dud match out of eight is nothing to complain about!

    • AJG316

      I hate to be the one that says this but one out of eight SO FAR

  • Zach

    Kane vs Orton, Show vs Rhodes, 12 man tag, Punk vs Y2J, HHH vs Undertaker, divas match, Sheamus vs Daniel, Rock vs Cena

  • unknown

    i think kane and orton will be best served if they turn it into a street fight kind of match.

    • H.M.

      I was dreaming of an inferno match but I'm guessing it'll be something along the lines of 'Miami Street Fight'. Kane wants to 'end' Orton so I don't think a general wrestling match would do the job lol.

  • Looking at the card like this…. I've noticed there are a lot of single 1 on 1 matches without much in the way of a stipulation, only broken by HHH vs Taker, and the 2 tag matches, of which one is a piss break divas match anyway.

    I agree with Unknown that perhaps Kane v Orton made a street fight, or put a tag team tables match or something like that with a bunch of smaller guys, something fast paced and energetic. Maybe do the Primo and Epico vs Uso's vs Whoever is worthy in some form of stipulation match for the tag belts to break up the singles matches a little

    • Ken Gillis

      Rock vs Cena should be a street fight. They have enough history together to make it that way.

  • Hunter

    I hope Layla returns at WM or soon after!

  • reflav

    The 12-man Control of the Brands should be FIRST. And the winning manager is in charge for the night.

  • kim

    I think that Rey Mysterio might make his Wrestlemania return as a member of team Teddy. If not that, I can only see him making an appearance. There’s just not enough space for an extra match, plus he has no storyline/feud at the moment because he’s been on the shelf for so long.


    Can't wait until WrestleMania28,16 days until the grandest stage of them all,I'm REALLY EXITED!!!!!!!!!

  • Alejandro

    I think this is a pretty damn good,and would be just fine with this being the final card.The only match I could imagine them adding as well would be a tag title match,and when I was thinking about them adding that,I had Kofi/Truth and Dolph/Swagger in mind for the challengers.But seeing that we have 4 HUGE main events,what should be solid matches between Kane/Orton and Cody/Big Show,and a pretty good looking 12 man tag match,I think this should be an awesome Mania.

  • Russell

    If I were booking these would be the results,team johnny over team Teddy.big show beats Cody for ic title (cause shows never held the belt plus Cody is a great ic champ but it's time for Cody to pursue the world championship.)Maria(whoever that is) and Kelly lose to Beth and eve.dbryan beats Sheamus by da then it's turned into street fight and Sheamus wins.Kane beats Randy.Triple h beats undertaker after all the hall of famers come in the cell and assault undertaker including hbk and the crowd is extremely ticked off that would be a standing mania moment.(here's an idea though Have the hall of famers beat down triple h also and roll hhh's onto taker and leave them both bloody.And finally have rock beat cena.

    • XKonn247

      That idea for the Taker HHH match is really awful. What the Hell do a bunch of retired athletes have to do with this match? And as for restarting a title match AGAIN this year. It was stupid last year and it’s be stupid again this year.

  • Ross

    That hhh vs taker moment won’t happen in a million years. Wonder boreton will beat Kane and I’m going for cena over rock. Agree with the rest. Oh and punk bt jericho

    • Who is Wonder boreton lol

  • Dan

    I think Kane and rko shouldn’t be a singles match. They should add them to the 12 man tag match instead. However it does get other ppl on the show so that’s a plus. But I agree with everyone it should be a street fight match. I’m a big orton fan but I don’t think those two in a singles match will be that good. It’ll be similar tk web orton vs triple h happened for the title a while back.

  • Dojo

    Think the 12 man tag match should be first to get the crowd pumped……… The more I think about it (although know it will NEVER happen) I would have liked to have seen Kane vs ‘taker in a hell in a cell inferno match especially since Kane’s return & orton v HHH as a kind of passing of the guard match………… Now that would have been good!!!!!! I still feel taker vs HHH is wrong move – taker would have been involved in a match with a member of the clique for the last 4 years – Kane would have been due another mania rematch. Also the build up to Kane/orton is waaaaaay too rushed for it to be a successful bout 🙁

  • Darryl

    Rooting for the Undertaker!
