Weekly Wrestlemania XXIX Update - The Top Three Matches For Next Year's Show As Of Today Including Who Challenges For The WWE Championship, "The Streak," Plus Another Dream Match Many Have Been Anticipating For Years

As the WWE creative team continues to work feverishly each week to fill the company's TV tapings and monthly pay-per-views, there continues to be much discussion about the Wrestlemania XXIX lineup next year. With things ever changing backstage in WWE, we have a new update with the thinking this week.

The name Triple H has thrown out for Brock Lesnar's opponent is Sheamus. Vince McMahon prefers to do The Undertaker vs. Lesnar but Hunter would prefer to put a younger talent over Lesnar. As one source told me, "we'll see who wins that battle."

There has been a lot of talk of The Rock winning the WWE Championship at Royal Rumble, most-likely against CM Punk, and go on to drop the title to John Cena in a rematch at Wrestlemania. With Rumble still far away, it's very possible Punk would drop the WWE Championship and re-gain it before the match at Royal Rumble.

Plans for CM Punk [at Wrestlemania] hinge on the future of "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. Vince and Hunter are both in agreement in trying to get Austin to return for "one last match" at Wrestlemania. While Austin hasn't said no, he hasn't said yes either.

Therefore plans this week for Wrestlemania XXIX look like this:

  • The Rock vs. John Cena for the WWE Championship
  • Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker (or Brock Lesnar vs. Sheamus)
  • Steve Austin vs. CM Punk

Obviously if Austin doesn't agree to work, the combination will have to be blown up which is very likely to happy.

  • Lee

    Lesnar v sheamus? Please no

    • Jamie

      Why? I wouldn't mind seeing that, I sort of like Sheamus, It would be nice for the WWE to push him further.

  • StephenSnel23

    Please for the love of god do not have Rock vs Cena II. I would love to see Rock vs Punk.

    • PainOfDemise

      Well you'll probably get to see that at the Rumble.

    • Austin 3:16

      Nobody wants too see Punk vs Rock. Punk's title reign as been dismal too put it nicely. This has easily been one of the most boring summers of wrestling and Punk's "I don't drink, smole, do drugs, Rated G gimmick is the main reason of that.

      • Patrick Peralta

        I would not mind seeing Rock vs Punk…. and nothing wrong with Punk's Straight Edge Lifestyle… I've lived that life style all my life. way before Punk brought it to Wrestling.

    • Jamie

      I want to see Rock Vs Cena 2, mainly because the other Cena was working injured…

  • Mrbenneysir

    Lesnar & Sheamus Yes Yes Yes its a must. We all love the Undertaker but it’s time for new Blood to take the rains and that person should be Sheamus

    • mr shwo

      sheamus isnt talented enough

  • Kleck

    What tremendous faith they have in Sheamus. Mania is going to be absolutely stacked with this lineup. A Wrestlemania for the ages!

  • Zack

    It makes me sick they are not only debating the idea, but seriously considering, taking the WWE championship off of CM Punk, and active WWE wrestler, to put it on DWAYNE, who probably won't even wrestle between the Rumble and Wrestlemania. Some WWE champion he would be, so much better than Punk who, you know, DESERVES the WWE Championship. Not only that, but what it does say about all the wrestlers Punk has beaten in his near year long championship reign? All the people who Punk goes over, to put him on top, just to have Punk go under to a guy who isn't a real wrestler anymore.

    • izblack

      BLAH BLAH BLAH quit crying, CM Punk fans cry too much. If McMahon did’t put Cena over The Rock then why would he put Punk over The Rock? Cena is far more deserving too beat the Rock then Punk but you didn’t hear him crying about it. Everybody under the sun has went out of there way too make Punk look and too also put him over so now it’s time for Punk too do the same, he hasn’t put anybody over since he came too the E in 06 so now it’s his time too start doing so. It can’t always be about Punk.

      • Jonathan McMahon

        It's not even about Punk. It's about the fact that Dwayne would be the WWE champion and not on TV at all, and as far as I'm concerned, that's horrible for business.

  • Daniel

    if people dont want to see the rock face cena for the title then you better pray that cm punk loses the title to cena during the next couple of months and that cena faces the rock at the rumble and beats him. cause i think if cena goes to wrestlemania without the title he will be in the main event fighting for the title regardless of whether its vs the rock or cm punk.

  • Patrick Peralta

    I'd like to see Undertaker vs Cena…NOT Lesner…….Hell I'll accept Undertaker vs Sheamus or even CM Punk…but NOT Lesner.

  • Isaac

    Is anyone else disappointed that we may never get to see a John Cena vs the Undertaker Feud?

    • Patrick Peralta

      I'm disapointed they are not going with that match up…I've been hopeing to see it the last 3 years. instead of repeat matches with HHH and HBK….

      I'd like to see Undertaker VS Cena at Wrestlemania before Undertaker desides to hang up the boots.

  • ceedot

    Sheamus vs Lesnar and Rock vs Cena both sound like very, very bad decisions to me. Sheamus is getting boring to me, and a rematch? Really?
    Lesnar vs Undertaker
    CM Punk vs Rock
    Cena va who ever. It’s Cena, the kids don’t care who he vs’. Bryan?
    Or Bryan vs Rock
    CM Punk vs Cena.

  • Jake

    There's no way I'm taking Sheamus vs Lesnar over Taker vs Lesnar. Do Lesnar vs Sheamus at Survivor Series or something. It wouldn't be a very big match at WM.

    • smithmiester

      The whole idea of doing lesner vs sheamus is to put sheamus over and elevate him

  • Chapinb0yy


  • havoc525

    I’d rather build to Barrett vs Lesnar to elevate Wade to the top level, but I do like the idea of using him to bring up a young guy.

  • proud

    I want The Rock vs. The Miz… Please WWE push Miz or this idea will be as dead as my excitement in seeing Brock vs. Sheamus or Rock vs. Cena

  • RaiderM

    Looks like im not ordering wrastle mania next year how bout this Albertoooooo Delllll Riiiiooooo vs the rock
    Lesner vs Cena
    Punk vs Austin I agree with that
    Undertaker vs who cares hes gonna win anyway

  • smithmiester

    Lesner vs sheamus would be a must see in my view although I can’t help but feel like it wouldn’t matter if sheamus won due to lesner losing to super cena. John cena vs the rock 2 should only be done for the wwe title.

  • Sythian

    If sheamus works his character a little harder and comes across tougher and a touch more confident then I would love to see him go over Lesnar and receive that push. I’m a big sheamus fan but at the moment he’s not at the level his character needs to heat the likes of hunter, Lesnar, Cena etc… It wouldn’t be believable, but he’s getting there

  • Tomas

    I'm ok with Lesnar Vs Sheamus only if we can get Taker Vs Bryan.

    • Bryant24

      No just no, with all do respect to Daniel Bryan,he is not a big enough name to get that honor yet,If u think about it takers last 5 matches were against edge,HBK and HHH,again with all due respect and I love Daniel Bryan but it would be kind of a drop off from Hbk and hhh to Daniel Bryan

  • christopher525

    If there's not Austin, I would say go with Undertaker and Punk. They've worked pretty well together in the past. Punk could lose the title then say he's "bigger than any title" and that he's become a "legend" and say how there's only 1 thing left for him to accomplish, breaking the streak.

    • Austin 3:16

      That would be a terrible idea. There feud was garbage in 09

  • Bryant24

    Of this card becomes reality with Brock vs sheamus,than what the hell with the undertaker do for wrestlemania

  • Jamie

    Rock Vs Cena (Maybe Triple threat w/ Undertaker?)
    Punk Vs Austin
    Lesnar Vs Sheamus
    Barret Vs Triple H ..

  • Evon Reese

    If Wade Barrett comes back strong he will make an impact on Wrestlemania
