This week on the Road to Wrestlemania, it kicked off with The Rock addressing a very young John Cena and The Miz. It happen to be one of the funniest promos I’ve ever seen. Things are really heating up between The Rock, John Cena and The Miz. It makes for very interesting television.
Sheamus finally ended his losing streak this week by defeating Daniel Bryan for the United States title. All I got to say is it’s about time because Sheamus is the future and a bright star for the WWE.
The Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler feud took a really interesting turn this week. Cole brought out Jerry’s son Brian Christopher and completely humiliated him. After the humiliation Jim Ross came out and was attacked by Cole and Jack Swagger for his troubles. You wonder what’s going to happen at Wrestlemania with all of these combustible elements.
In her first match in a long time Trish Stratus returned to Raw to take on Vickie Guerrero. Unfortunately Vickie Guerrero defeated Trish Stratus in their No Disqualification Match. Next thing you know it Snooki, Laycool, John Morrison and Dolph Ziggler all got involved. Now their is a 6 person tag match at Wrestlemania. All I got to say is that matches, the stars and the excitement for Mania is getting bigger.
The end of Raw saw John Cena take on Alberto Del Rio but in the end The Miz came in dressed as The Rock and destroyed Cena. That’s how Raw went off the air and then Friday came and Smackdown was here.
Smackdown had some really great matches. The show kicked off with World Heavyweight Champion Edge defeating Brodus Clay and then a post match brawl ensued. That set up a match between Alberto Del Rio and Christian in a Steel Cage. Christian won but at the end of the show Edge got attacked by Clay and Del Rio.
In another great match United States Champion Sheamus defeated Intercontinental Champion Kofi Kingston. This was probably one of the better matches I’ve seen in a while on TV. Both deserve the titles they have whether people love them or not.
Also on the show Big Show and Kane defeated WWE Tag Team Champions Justin Gabriel and Heath Slater by Disqualification. After the match Show and Kane were on the receiving on the end of a brutal beat down.
After this week of chaos and craziness here is the current lineup for Wrestlemania:
-The Undertaker vs. Triple H (No Holds Barred Match)
-WWE Champion The Miz vs. John Cena
-World Heavyweight Champion Edge vs. Alberto Del Rio
-Randy Orton vs. CM Punk
