Wrestlemania XXX Preview: Overall Thoughts/Predictions

This might be slightly biased.

So as you probably know, I’m going to be in the Super Dome tomorrow night for the show.  Obviously that’s going to change my take on the events a little bit, but I still think it’s going to be a good show.  There are at least four matches with potential to steal the show, and all roads seem to lead to Daniel Bryan walking out with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.  That’s the logical conclusion here and it’s something most people want to see.  I’m looking forward to it and it’s a chance for WWE to pull the trigger on someone in some long form storytelling.

The wrestling is going to be excellent and the drama will be cranked up to eleven tomorrow night.  Hopefully they throw in the Divas in between the four big matches to give us a breather, because that’s been a problem before.  I’m looking at you Wrestlemania XIX and for some reason talking to you like an animate object.  I don’t think it’s going to top Wrestlemania XVII or anything like that, but it could be up there with XIX or XX as far as an awesome show.

Now for the interesting part: the rumors.

1. I don’t think Sting shows up.  I believe it’s more possible on Raw than any time before, but I’ll stick with my stance of I’ll believe it when I see it.

2. No Punk.  It just doesn’t feel right.

3. Austin vs. Punk next year doesn’t seem likely for me either.  Austin has been almost flat out saying it’s happening on his podcast, which seems like it’s ruining a huge surprise, which isn’t WWE’s style.

Am I missing any?

The show should be great and I haven’t been this excited in a very long time.

    That’s the rumor at the moment.

    Why the hell would it be Austin/Punk? Austin/Cena would be a MUCH bigger deal.

    Austin v Punk would be a much better match. And Austin has made it clear how much he admires Pink and Bryan.With Cena’s injuries and the amount of ring time he’s had in the last 10 years his days as the Champion are over. If Bray wins tonight it’s a sign that he will be mainly used to put over up and comers. Reigns would probably be next.

    I find Cena to be a better overall wrestler to Punk, no contest.

    Once you’ve written the review based on being there live, do you plan on re-watching and re-reviewing it again at home and seeing if there’s a difference?

    Indeed. Probably tomorrow if I have the time before Raw. If not then, once I get home later this week.
