Backstage News On Possible WWE WrestleMania XXX Matches, Royal Rumble Plans & More

wrestlemania30

WWE officials have been focusing on WrestleMania XXX plans and reportedly have working plans for most of the top names including Triple H, John Cena, Ryback, Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton and The Undertaker, among a few others. While several months ago they wanted to do Steve Austin vs. Triple H for control of WWE with Austin representing Vince McMahon, it looks like that match will not be happening.

Word is that WWE officials are looking at The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar, Ryback vs. Goldberg if that works out, Cody Rhodes vs. Dustin Rhodes and CM Punk vs. Randy Orton.

Regarding Orton vs. Punk, Punk at one point was going to win the Royal Rumble and challenge for the title shot but there was talk of having the winner be whoever challenges for the World Title instead. As noted, there has also been talk of doing a champion vs. champion match for the main event.

    I don’t want to see Cena/Orton in the main event. Orton/Punk is great only because CM Punk deserves to be in the main event. He’s earned it, and it’d be much more excited than something we’ve seen a million times.

      I agree, Orton/Cena was done to death a few years back. The only way I’d be ok with it is do it as a Champ Vs Champ to unite the belts again. Since they do a Supershow now there’s no point really in a Smackdown Champ and Raw Champ. On a side note I’d like to see Punk/Taker 2 with some sort of stipulation that if Taker wins he must retire if he loses he has to be Punk’s manager/valet thing. But that’d only work with Punk as a heel.
