The schedule for WWE WrestleMania 29 has leaked out to the public. Although nothing major has been revealed, it looks like the event won’t have any meaningless one minute squash matches like in previous years.
As I already mentioned in a previous article, I feared that WrestleMania 29 had too many matches booked. WWE must have noticed this as well since the Wade Barrett vs The Miz match is now on the one hour pre-show.
WrestleMania 28 saw a pathetic 18 second match between Sheamus and Daniel Bryan. The worst thing about it was that it was for the World Heavyweight Championship title, one of the most important belts in the WWE.
Looking at the schedule that has been released/leaked for WrestleMania 29, it appears as if every match will be allocated enough time to entertain fans.
Here is the current schedule for WrestleMania 29 below:
— The Rock vs. John Cena has been given 25 to 30 minutes.
— CM Punk vs. The Undertaker has been given 20 minutes.
— Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar has been given 20 to 30 minutes.
— Jack Swagger vs. Alberto Del Rio has been given 15 minutes.
— The Shield vs. Randy Orton, Big Show and Sheamus has been given 15 minutes.
— Ryback vs. Mark Henry has been given 12 minutes.
— Chris Jericho vs. Fandango has been given 10 minutes.
— Kane and Daniel Bryan vs. Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston has been given 12 to 15 minutes.
— The Diddy musical performance has been given eight minutes.
— The WWE Hall of Famers coming out to wave to fans has been given seven minutes.
— The show opener and National Anthem has been given seven minutes.
— Other assorted segments throughout the show have been given 10 minutes.
Much like last year, Triple H, Rock and Cena will be allocated the most time with 30 minute matches. Punk vs Undertaker will be allocated a kind 20 minute match. It’s good to know that Jericho and Fandango will be given 10 minutes. This isn’t too long, but better than five minutes or less.
All in all, it looks like WWE has managed their time better this year and will fit all of the matches properly within four hours.
