This is my first blog and I thought I would build my own Wrestlemania 28 card, whie trying to keep it somewhat realistic.
1. Rock vs Cena
There really isn't anything you need to add here....they have done a good job building to this and I can't really co plain about this match. The only thing I would do is have Cena "snap after the match after being booed out of the building and Embracing the Hate as Kane would say and turn heel. Really, what more can they do with him as a face?
2. Sheamus vs Undertaker (c) for the WHC
Really I see HHH vs UT as a waste of time. Its the third time already..haven't we had enough of this? We all know there is no way UT is jobbing to anyone so at least use the match to build Sheamus into a even bigger star. Its pretty obvious since WWE focuses Wrestlemania around stars from 10 years ago that they have no confidence in the current roster. That needs to change. The Undertakers, Rocks, Austins of the world won't be around forever. I would have had Undertaker return for the chamber and win the title then.
3. CM Punk (c) vs Daniel Bryan for the WWE Title
I think this is a much better option than Jericho/Punk. Sure that match up has good promo work but I just don't trust jericho in a big match like that. If it was the Jericho that delivered the classic against HBK it would be one thing. I just can't forget the horrible match that Jericho had against Edge. On paper it should have been a classic, but it was one of the most dissapointing WM matches in recent memory.
As far as Bryan/Punk goes you couldn't ask for a better technical match up than this, it would tear the house down. Then I would go into a independent stable from here, although of course they couldn't reference ROH, but to make a stable with Punk, Bryan (if they want to turn him face again) Tyler Black and The Kings Of Wrestling would just be awesome especially if they brought up the whole wrestlers vs sports entertainment angle and made them feud with Cena, Orton, The Miz, etc.
4. Miz vs Jericho
I think this would be a better spot for Jericho. two guys that talk smack better than anyone. If nothing else it could help elevate Miz again.
5. Cody Rhodes vs Dustin Rhodes for the IC title
This seemed to be a natural when they had a few promos together but just abandoned it for some reason.
6. Beth Phoenix vs Natayla for the Divas title
I would have rather had Kharma but since she's not ready this would have been just as good...about having a divas match with women who can wrestle for once? Crazy eh?
7. Elimination match for a title shot a summerslam
You could use this match as filler for other stars not included yet. I like this idea better than MITB. The winner could face either champion. You could put guys like Del Rio, Orton, Barrett, R-Truth etc in this.
8. If you wanted to fill out the card you could still do that GM battle but one thing I would do if you could sign him is play off that whole Shane Douglas invasion thing at Raw and have him interfere and cost Johnny the match...having him do it out of embarassment for their past together. Of course anyone under the age of 30 won't understand why but I think it would be a pretty good ending.
I sure like this card better than what we are getting and welcome any comments.
