This week on the Road to Wrestlemania 29, it got more intense. Monday Night Raw kicked off with The Undertaker paying tribute to the late Paul Bearer who managed him and Kane for many years. CM Punk interrupted Takers tribute and severely angered Kane. Later on in the night Kane defeated Punk in a NODQ match but CM Punk attacked Kane with the urn and stole it before Undertaker could make it to the ring. Kane’s rough week continued on Friday when he lost to Dolph Ziggler and got beat down by Big E. Langston after the match. The same turn of events happened to Daniel Bryan.
A lot of people have mixed views on CM Punk’s role on Monday. I personally think that him stealing the urn makes their match so much more meaningful at Wrestlemania. A lot of people are calling Undertaker vs. CM Punk, the real main event of Wrestlemania 29. Punk’s associated Paul Heyman was not with him this week as he came out with Brock Lesnar to accept Triple H’s challenge. He accepted it by destroying the New Age Outlaws who were facing the Rhodes Scholars. Brock Lesnar will name the stipulation once Triple H signs the contract for the match.
There is only one title match to talk about this week because John Cena and The Rock were not on Raw or Smackdown. Alberto Del Rio defeated Antonio Cesaro on Monday Night Raw and continued with parody skits of Jack Swagger and Zeb Coulter on Smackdown. Jack Swagger manhandled Sin Cara on Raw while having the match of the week on Smackdown with Chris Jericho. Speaking of Y2J he and Miz battled to a no contest to see who would face Wade Barrett on this upcoming edition of Raw. Since it was a no contest there will be a triple threat match for the Intercontinental Title on this upcoming Raw.
One match that was made official was a six-man tag between The Shield and the team of Ryback, Sheamus, and Randy Orton. Big Show asked to be the third partner of Sheamus and Orton but turned him down. However before Ryback could fight Mark Henry The Shield laid him out. Mark Henry came out and hit The World Strongest Slam on Ryback multiple times. These actions lead me to believe that Big Show will eventually replace Ryback, and you will see Ryback vs. Mark Henry at Wrestlemania 29.
The Road to Wrestlemania 29 is heating up and here the four matches that have been made official and here they are:
With just a few weeks left until Wrestlemania expect more matches to made.
