Control Of The Brands To Be Determined In 12-Man Tag Team Match At Wrestlemania XXVIII

WWE announced via a “legal letter” from the “Board of Directors” that there will be a six-on-six 12-Man Tag Team match at Wrestlemania XXVIII to determine whether the control of the brands will go to Teddy Long or John Laurinaitis.

Teams will be announced on television leading up to Wrestlemania.

Richard Reacts: This is exactly the match I had hoped for, sparring us from anything that came close to resembling the material we saw on Smackdown last week.

    I’m cool with this. Gives a reason to put more names on the WM card, a reason for Johnny Ace to go away (hopefully), and it prevents Teddy Long from having to wrestle.

  • Bault16

    This is wayyy better than money in the bank

  • Patrick_Peralta

    I don't care about this feud , but between Bog Johnny and Teddy Long. I like Teddy Long better. I still think Big Johnny should get off TV and go back to his office where he belongs.

    • Logan_Walker

      Teddy Long is Much Better in the long run so he has a Job i dont know what they would do if he lost ?
      Johnny L has Still got his VP Of Talent Relations ?

      i Thought Johnny Travelled with the Superstars ? for example on the WWE John Cena DVD he was there at Raw, Smackdown and at the ppv

  • Stephen

    Shoulda had Money In The Bank but this works I guess the card is loaded anyways

  • @RatedMKD

    The only thing I wasn't expecting is the number. I was anticipating possibly an 8-man but probably a 10-man tag team match. On one hand, it's great that at least four more guys will get their WrestleMania spot, but I just hope the match doesn't become too clustered.

  • Brian

    Good way to get some guys a spot on the WrestleMania card who might not have had a shot otherwise.

  • Mohammad Abulawi

    yes yes yes, see the wwe is smart because know they will show 12 people on the card in front of millions and millions of people watching, smart move wwe but let's hope they are mid-carders so they can get some time to shine

  • outkazt09

    everything went better than expected.

  • Hazmatt23

    Ziggler gets on the card and it gives Teddy the opportunity to have a mystery 6th man to his team the Smackdown before mania. I was hoping to see MitB but this will be fine, as long as its not like the Nexus’ match from last year.

  • Brandon from south Africa

    As long as it includes CHRISTIAN, then I’m a happy camper…

  • cjavent

    I hope they make this match an elimination match or similar to an MitB match.

  • Diddy

    I predict there will be teams led by David Otunga representing Johnny ace and Santino Marrella representing Teddy Long sounds good to me and i bet atleast 2 members of Otunga's team will be Christian and Mark Henry

  • Shashank Bhandari

    The teams will be worth seeing..

    I am guessing christian, del rio, otunga, ziggler, swagger and henry will make up team johnny, though I dont know about the injury status of these guys..

    And probably santino, ryder, ezekiel jackson will be in Team Long, the rest I am not sure..

  • Ryder

    I could care less about this gm angle because the brands don't mean anything any more you have smackdown guys showing up on raw and vice versa why should I care about who controls both shows? At least some other guys can get their wrestlemania paycheck and get a spot on the card so thats good.

    • James Mitchell

      Well I guess you found your reason why you should care. Good job. I’d also disagree with brands not making a difference. I’d explain but I don’t want to hurt your brain any.

      • Ryder

        dont worry bro my brain is fine keep moving on troll :)

  • PhatCrumpet

    so from what i understand on Johnny boys side will be ADR, Christian, Mark Henry, Dolph, Swagger and ????? Doesnt leave too much for teddy does it

    • Christopher

      Maybe The Miz will fit in somewhere in the match

    • http://www.totalbarca.com/ Marc4barca

      Johnny – ADR, Christian, Mark Henry, Dolph Ziggler, Swagger and The Miz.

      Teddy – Ezekial Jackson, Santino Marella, Kofi Kingston, Justin Gabriel, Khali(unfortunately) and Rey Mysterio.

      Otunga and Drew are two others who could be on johnny side but i went with the miz cause he is a bigger superstar.

      • Ricky

        Replace Khali with R-Truth and we got a match.

        • @RatedMKD

          Agreed, it makes no sense to put Kofi in there without R-Truth. That said, if anyone there gets the axe in favour of R-Truth, it'll probably be Gabriel rather than Khali. I really hope I'm wrong about that!

    • Frenchfry

      Id assume Johnny will also have Otunga

  • AJG316

    2 things 1. I can't say I'm shocked by this and I know that in some way the miz will sneak in this match at the last second 2. I wonder if they will make an elimination match or tornado match make it more exciting

  • Stoney

    Team Long: (Santino, Kofi, R-Truth, Justin Gabriel, Khali (he's the last person I want to see at WM), and Zack Ryder) Vs Team Laurinaitis: (Dolph, Swagger, Otunga, McIntyre, Miz and Mark Henry)

  • Blazeking

    I guess it's confirmed: Teddy Long is retiring. He's 64 & the age of retirement is 65. He had a great career and I'm looking forward to seeing him get into the HOF next year. He should be inducted by Booker T.

  • havoc525

    Swagger and Ziggles will likely be in a tag title match, may not want to include them. Teddy will likely have Mysterio redebut on his team.

  • wwefanatic

    Glad to see 12 extra guys getting a paycheck

  • Dan

    I doubt it would happen but an interesting face and/or heel turn in this match would make for an exciting finish. Miz or Dolph jumping ship to Teddy’s team for the win would be sweet.

  • Snaps

    Tag-Team match, playa.

  • Josh

    i think rey mysterio will be put in this match since hes saying he will be ready for mania

  • Aldo T

    If McIntyre is in the match, then I'm all in.

    I would have preferred to see him in the babyface role, but being a heel works with him too.

    But then again, thats just me.

    More importantly, if there is no Khali, then I'm more than sure that this match will steal the show :D

  • Hunter

    Please don’t put Khali in this match. I hope it’s an elimination match, those are always more fun. It sucks that Ziggler, Truth, and Miz will likely be involved, I had hoped each would have a singles match at Wrestlemania.

  • MonsterMike42

    As long as the match is elimination, then I'm all for it.

    Finally MIZ can get MANIA match.
