The top matches are beginning to take shape for Wrestlemania XXVIII. While the only confirmed bout is John Cena vs. The Rock, there are three other matches in preliminary plans.
The first match was revealed by Shaquille O’Neal in a media interview. While WWE officials weren’t happy Shaq leaked he was in negotiations, he is still being pursued as a celebrity tie-in against Big Show. Company officials feel there is already an angle in place to sell the match. I’m told Kevin Nash has pushed for a match against Big Show in a “battle of giants,” however, it’s unknown if WWE has any interest in that should Shaq fall through.
The latest on The Undertaker is there are plans for him to compete at Wrestlemania. Much to chagrin of many, the favorite for his opponent is Triple H. I’m told Shawn Michaels has been pitched as the special guest referee to add a fresh element to an old match.
Finally, I’ve heard WWE is looking at doing CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho. With that being said, I do not have details on what WWE plans to do with the Jericho character.
