Finally in week 9 The Rock has come back to television. Things between The Rock and John Cena got intense as John Cena got the rock bottom at the end of Raw. Last year it was about the fun and games but this year it has a more serious tone to it. The Rock wasn’t done on Monday. He appeared on Smackdown to give John Laurinaitis a People’s Elbow.
As for the World Heavyweight Title feud, things between Jack Swagger and Alberto Del Rio are getting intense. Swagger attacked Ricardo on Monday and Ricardo got even by attacking Zeb Coulter with a crutch. This match has interested a lot of people because of the economic, immigration and even racial issues. This match interests me more than the the WWE Title match does and that’s maybe because both Swagger and Del Rio are puttin their heart and soul into this feud. Look for an excellent match between these two at Wrestlemania.
Paul Heyman had a busy Monday. He was involved in making sure CM Punk kept possession of the urn. CM Punk was attacked by The Undertaker on Mondays for his continued insults towards the urn and Paul Bearer. Paul Heyman was also on the receiving end of an attack from Triple H who signed the contract for his match with Brock Lesnar. If you really think about it, Paul Heyman could be the star of Wrestlemania. He is involved with two high powered matches. Heyman is a great talker and manager, and it’s great to see him heavily involved at a Wrestlemania.
I will be honest and just tell you I didn’t like the buildup of the under card except for Ryback and Mark Henry. They each won their respective handicap matches and competed in an impressive weightlifting contest. Most of the under-card was made on Raw Active or the internet but I am sure this week will have plenty of buildup for the big event this week. With that being said here if the official card for Wrestlemania 29:
We are just one week away from the biggest show of the year and it has a solid card. This is probably the most solid card on a Wrestlemania show in quite a few years. Check back next week for the final thoughts headed into Wrestlemania 29.
