    “After weeks of speculation and uncertainty…” – it was pretty obvious that match was happening once Smackdown was taped last week

    • Matt

      But before that no one knew what direction The Shield was going. Smackdown made it super clear and it was confirmed on Raw. Should be a good match, too.

      • Bob’s Diner

        Good match? It is an absolute waste of The Shield – two guys that don’t deserve to even be there and The Shield will have to work their butts off just to make the match respectable.

        • Matt

          I’m high up on The Shield’s work. Kane is awesome. New Age Outlaws…yeah I question them being in the match and honestly though they’d rematch the Usos. Either way, I can’t complain about it because i don’t control the card. I have a great feeling it’ll be a good match (maybe not compared to others on the card).

          • Matt

            Bob, I’d like to know your opinion on the Divas match at Mania.

          • Bob’s Diner

            To be honest, I saw it was a Vickie Guerrero Invitational and started laughing too much to even care who was in it. At least Andre the Giant was actually a wrestler who won battle royals…

            Agreed that Kane is awesome – I don’t know what it is, but that man still goes at a high level and never feels old. I don’t look forward to the day WWE don’t have him to rely on making the midcard entertaining.

            I think that made sense… maybe…

          • Matt

            Made perfect sense to me. Two battle royales have me shaking my head. But, we could end up talking about it as how great it was (though I doubt it for divas). I’m glad the Mania card has filled out finally….but feel that certain matches are going to not work. We’ll see! I’m always an optimist.

          • Bob’s Diner

            I’m amazed at how long this has taken them, though. I certainly believe there will some good matches – most notably Bryan/HHH and Undertaker/Lesnar. The rest? I guess we’ll see…

            Wait, it is another battle royal? Do they not remember the last time they tried a divas battle royal at WrestleMania???

          • Matt

            They’re calling it an invitational. I can’t imagine it would be a gauntlet style. Just throw them all in there and last diva standing is the winner. That’s what I assume. I am just speculating here, but I can’t help but think that this is the Mania where Vince is saying “i’m sorry Network is cutting into paychecks here is a Wrestlemania bonus” for EVERYONE.

          • David F

            I would rather have fatal four way with Nattie, Brie, Naomi and AJ and you can make it a Lumberjill Match to get rest of the divas on card. This way divas can have an actual match and not clusterbleep. I also do think Shield should be triple threat. Whats problem with doing two triple threats at Mania? Many of WWE’s ppvs have had two of same matches Triple threat with Shield and WWE title would not be overexposure

          • Matt

            I agree. Having anything closer to an individual match will give the Divas a chance to prove themselves (they’ve been so much better lately but more eyes on Wrestlemania).

  • Eddie Edwards

    How disappointing

  • Gary Robert

    Whoop Dee Doo. So much for the dream of a Triple Threat between them which would have been possibly the best match on the card, imo, had it happened.

  • The Culomeister

    Pathetic

  • Lebron James

    The Shield is f’ing amazing. Every few months you change your mind about which one of them will be more successful, and right now it’s Seth Rollins by a landslide. Incredible in ring performer, and his mic skills have increased dramatically. That man has been putting on a show for months now! The way he poppped that crowd last night was second to none, he’s very fun to watch. All 3 of those guys are future world champions, what an incredible faction. They’re going to go down as one of the all time great factions. Easily.
