This week on the Road to Wrestlemania it kicked off with The Undertaker returning to Monday Night Raw. Shortly after that CM Punk came out and said he was going to take on The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 29. Big Show, Sheamus and Randy Orton interrupted and said they deserved to face The Undertaker. A fatal four way was set and once it was all said and done CM Punk won and they stared each other down to close Raw.
Another return that happened this week was the return of the New Age Outlaws as they defeated the team of Epic and Primo. It has been over a decade since they teamed on Monday Night Raw. They will take on Team Rhodes Scholars this Monday.
Speaking of members from DX, Triple H challenged Brock Lesnar to a match at Wrestlemania 29 and Brock Lesnar will be on Raw this Monday to give Triple H his answer. It appears Paul Heyman will be with Brock Lesnar and CM Punk for Wrestlemania 29. Speaking of Paul Heyman associates, The Shield has continued to launch attacks on Sheamus, Randy Orton and now Big Show. It appears that The Shield will take on those three men at Wrestlemania 29 but plans could always change. Another match that seems to be in the works is Mark Henry vs. Ryback. Both men have had run-ins twice this week so I will be curious to see the buildup to that match.
The match of the week was most definitely Dolph Ziggler and Alberto Del Rio. It was a back and forth contest but once Big E and AJ were kicked out of the match the momentum turned into Del Rio’s favor. Del Rio’s Wrestlemania opponent Jack Swagger beat up Sgt. Slaughter, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, and Dusty Rhodes on Raw. Swagger and Coulter continue to spread their propaganda and continue talk about some of the most controversial topics that surround the United States.. The World Title feud is probably one of the most intriguing feuds I’ve seen quite some time. I suspect their will be more intense build up over the next four weeks.
The buildup for The Rock and John Cena just started this week and it took on a lot more of a serious tone this time then it did last year. Last year it was all fun and games, but I think this year we will see a different side to John Cena. I really hope that Cena and Rock actually deliver this year because this year they will have a better card underneath them then they did last year.
We know that three matches have officially been set in stone with three more potentially to be made this week. One has to wonder how Wade Barrett, Antonio Cesaro, Team Hell No, Team Rhodes Scholars, Dolph Ziggler, The Miz and a few others will be involved. Stay tuned for more on these individuals on their Road to Wrestlemania. Here are the three matches set for Wrestlemania 29 thus far:
