There are reports coming out currently that is stating that the main event for WrestleMania 29 will be CM Punk vs. The Undertaker for the WWE CHAMPIONSHIP!
Current creative plans have been brewing that CM Punk will defeat The Rock at the 2013 Royal Rumble, thus parading into Wrestlemania as the champion. Rumors also ran hot over the summer that The Rock was slated to be the one to finally put an end to CM Punk championship reign at The Royal Rumble by winning the Championship and going on to WrestleMania to battle John Cena for the WWE Championship, with Cena going over.
However, there are two things that raise concern of this theory. Firstly, having The Rock win the WWE Championship at The Rumble is a great risk, considering all of the days and shows that The Rock would miss between January’s Royal Rumble and April’s Wrestlemania. This wouldn’t be a good look for show ticket sales where the WWE Champion would not be on the roster for multiple shows.
Secondly, its a great chance, and concern, that Cena is not as marketable (at this moment) as he was some years ago. Has John Cena fallen flat with his character? And thus the simple mindedness of his current booking with AJ Lee? Considering Wrestlemania is the biggest WWE Show of the year, there will be much more that is needed than just slapping Cena’s name to the main event.
A CM Punk vs Undertaker main event could in fact tear the house down. Also with the current John Cena lull, this could be the money match that will generate the pay per view buys. Plus we can finally see the finalization of this feud that has been alive since 2009.
