With just a few episodes of “Monday Night Raw” remaining until WrestleMania 29, the match card for the biggest Pay-Pay-View of the year is beginning to take shape.
A few high profile matches at MetLife Stadium have already been officially set, including those with titles on the line.
John Cena will challenge The Rock for the second straight year, but this time, with the WWE championship on the line. Alberto Del Rio will defend his World Heavyweight title against Elimination Chamber winner Jack Swagger.
The Undertaker returned to “Raw” for the first time since July and is set to put his 20-0 steak on the line in 2013. CM Punk defeated Sheamus, Randy Orton and Big Show in a fatal four-way match to earn the right to challenge the “Dead Man.”
That still leaves many big-time superstars without a match on the biggest event in wrestling. Here are predictions for all of the WrestleMania 29 matches:
The Rock vs. John Cena (WWE Championship)
The two superstars had a face-to-face confrontation this past Monday, for the first time since they fought at WrestleMania 28. Cena vowed to get redemption after last year’s loss in Miami. The match should be the main event of WrestleMania for the second year in a row.
The Undertaker vs. CM Punk
It’s highly unlikely Punk will end Undertaker’s streak, but the match could end up being the best of the night. Punk seemed to make vague references to a potential match with Undertaker, calling himself “God” in a promo, and performing a piledriver in his match with Cena.
Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar
The WWE’s COO challenged Lesnar to match at WrestleMania 29 after the former UFC star attacked Vince McMahon. Look for Triple H to finally get the upper hand after losing to Lesnar at SummerSlam.
Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger (World Heavyweight Championship)
Zeb Coulter, Swagger’s manager, has helped elevate the feud with his stance against illegal immigration. The WWE seems to be enjoying the controversy the match has created, and could put Swagger over, as a result.
Ryback vs. Mark Henry
The two had a major stare down after Ryback defeated Antonio Cesaro on Monday. Henry and Ryback may be the two strongest men in the WWE and could have a very memorable match.
Chris Jericho vs. Dolph Ziggler
The two seem to have an unresolved feud after Jericho defeated Ziggler at SummerSlam, and the Money in the Bank winner got Jericho fired the next night on “Raw.”
Randy Orton/Sheamus/Big Show vs. The Shield
The Shield has attacked all three superstars on multiple occasions, and it makes sense for them to get their revenge at MetLife Stadium.
Team Hell No vs. The Prime Time Players (Tag Team Championship)
Daniel Bryan and Kane have been on the verge of a breakup since the Royal Rumble, and there’s a good chance they’ll lose their belts to Darren Young and Titus O’Neil.
Wade Barrett vs. Bo Dallas (Intercontinental Championship)
The two seemed to be building a feud after Dallas got the better of Barrett at the Royal Rumble, though they haven’t had a confrontation in a few weeks.
Antonio Cesaro vs. The Miz (United States Championship)
Cesaro has beaten The Miz on multiple occasions, though he won by what seemed to be an accidental low blow at “Elimination Chamber.” The WWE seems determined to get The Miz over by pairing him with Ric Flair, so he may get the belt on April 7.
