WWE Rumors: Top 10 Rumored Wrestlemania 30 Matches
The Top 10 Rumored Matches for Wrestlemania 30
The countdown to Wrestlemania 30 is well underway. We're just under two weeks away from the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, which means the final pieces to the WM puzzle are almost in place. Whether WWE knows what those pieces are, is a completely different story.
What do we know at this point?
Batista is going to be in the WWE World Heavyweight Title match. Whether fans like it or not, that's already been decided. Like he said, "deal with it."
The question remains -- who will Batista face? The favorite is still Randy Orton, but WWE clearly isn't sold on that yet. Will Orton emerge from the Chamber as champion? I think he will.
The other big story is the absence of CM Punk. The self proclaimed 'best in the world' has been MIA for two weeks. Vince McMahon has reportedly met with Punk, however his name is still being taken off of live show advertisements, which is leading many to believe that he is indeed gone for good. It seems like this year was going to be his final Mania, and since he wasn't booked in the main event, he decided to call it a career (for now).
If I had to bet on whether Punk appears at WM 30, I'd bet 'no' at this point. However, I'm still holding out hope that he could appear. It's just seeming more and more unlikely with each passing day, though. Is it all a big work? That would be awesome.
So without Punk out of the picture, what are the top WM 30 matches going to be? Here's a look at the top 10 rumored matches:
Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H
Punk was supposed to wrestle Triple H, but now that he's gone, Bryan is rumored to be the next man up. A match between Bryan and HHH makes way more sense than one between Punk and HHH.
Batista vs. Randy Orton
Old friends from Evolution battle for the WWE title 10 years later. Good story, but will anyone care? I think they'll have to get Ric Flair involved before the hardcore fans pay any attention. More than likely, if this bout happens, the fans at the Superdome will boo them out of the arena.
Batista vs. Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan
This match makes the most sense for the WWE title. No one cares about Batista, so adding Bryan to the title match would give the people what they want.
Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose
The Shield members are about to throw down. It's only a matter of time, and what better stage than at WM? Possible show-stealing match with three very capable guys in the ring.
Sting vs. Undertaker
This is a dream match. Is it likely to happen this year? Only if Sting signs with WWE in the very near future. He's said to be very close to doing so, but there are also rumors that his WWE in-ring debut could be held off until next year.
Goldust vs. Cody Rhodes
You can basically take this one to the bank. After several years of fans demanding a match between the real-life brothers, it's almost a lock for the WM 30 card.
John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt
This match makes sense on a lot of levels. Cena doesn't need to be involved in the title match and he should be spending time putting young guys over at this point. Cena will provide Bray Wyatt with a much-needed rub at WM 30.
Ryback vs. Goldberg or Ultimate Warrior
If a match like this happens, it will be quick and to the point. No way it goes past seven minutes.
Brock Lesnar vs. Undertaker
Lesnar has been on a tear lately so he looks as strong as possible before his showdown with the Undertaker. Unless Taker doesn't want to wrestle Lesnar, you can take this one to the bank.
Roman Reigns vs. Triple H
This is a rumored backup match, that would only take place if Bryan was inserted into the title picture and if WWE officials decide to make Reigns a face. I think it's too early for that, but either way, this bout would entertain.
