WM27 Plans For The Rock, Edge & Christian, The Corre & More
With WrestleMania 27 less than 1 week away, we’ve got some news on what WWE has planned for The Rock, the Corre, Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan and Christian.
– The Rock’s current involvement with WWE has already turned out much better than either side expected. The Rock agreed to guest host WrestleMania earlier this year, but he’s enjoyed being back on WWE television so much that he’s now willing to get back in the ring for a few more matches. WWE is keeping a very tight lid on exactly what The Rock will do at WrestleMania, but most people within the company expect The Rock to eventually wrestle both The Miz and John Cena – with Miz likely being his first opponent.
– The original plan for Sheamus vs. Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania 27 was to have The Bella Twins in Sheamus’ corner and Gail Kim in Bryan’s corner, but it doesn’t look like that will be happening anymore.
– The Corre had been scheduled to face Big Show, Kane, Kofi Kingston and Christian at WrestleMania, but WWE changed gears on this and Christian will now be involved in Edge and Alberto Del Rio’s World Heavyweight title feud.
One angle that’s been discussed would be for Christian to be in Edge’s corner at WrestleMania, turn heel and then cost Edge the World Heavyweight title – setting up an eventual 3-man match between Edge, Christian and Del Rio.
