New WWE WrestleMania 30 Matches Rumored

The WrestleMania 30 match rumors are hotter than ever and we are months away from the big event in New Orleans. A new report indicates that the WWE could go a few ways with John Cena, leaving the title picture open in the main-event.

Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer newsletter points to several rumored matches for the WWE 30th anniversary event. Meltzer reports that CM Punk vs. Randy Orton is an idea being tossed around for the WWE championship. The match would indeed be a WrestleMania rematch but the stakes would be much higher than their first match.

The match makes a lot of sense and is something that has actually been built up for a while. Punk has been doing interviews for months about his dream of wrestling in the WrestleMania main-event. Maybe it wasn’t by accident? The report indicates that this is a new idea and far from a lock to be on the books come 2014.

I think it would be very difficult to push Punk back there and keep both him and Orton separated until Mania. I know that most are reporting that The Big Show will be wrestling Orton next but I see Orton and Punk as the next logical program. I could even see a scenario where Daniel Bryan wins the title and works a program with Punk. I just think that it will be incredibly difficult to keep Punk out of the title picture until next year.

This also means that there is something bigger planned for John Cena. The logical destination in the current storyline is for an Orton vs. Cena match at WrestleMania. This idea of a Punk vs. Orton match tel.ls me something else could be up. Meltzer brings up the idea of Cena vs. Triple H at Mania. I think that is another logical move as well. I am not sure what it accomplishes but I could see that being the direction with even a Cena heel turn in the mix.

The other idea I could see here is Cena vs. The Undertaker. This was something I brought up last April. My original idea would have had Cena holding the title through Mania and doing a streak vs. streak match with the Dead Man. That is obviously out. While the new rumor is Ryback vs. Taker, Cena vs. Taker is big money and works for a 30th anniversary event.

Meltzer also speculates that Daniel Bryan could wind up wrestling Triple H at Mania. I have always thought that those two were going to wrestle at some point. I don’t know that you can hold it off until WrestleMania. After Randy Orton what do you do with Daniel Bryan? I have always felt that they were moving to a Bryan vs. Hunter match in the immediate future. I’d be surprised to see it held off until 2014.

The report further indicates that Steve Austin is pretty much out and The Rock is up in the air. That leaves Brock Lesnar with a big question mark. The Rock vs. Brock is the plan but if the WWE is looking at other matches for The Undertaker, what do you do with Lesnar? I still think he winds up wrestling either Rock or Taker no matter what the latest rumors are.

One thing you can’t argue with is that there is a lot more excitement and anticipation for the 2014 WrestleMania than there has been in years.
