WWE as of late has been talking a lot backstage regarding the undercard for this year’s WrestleMania pay-per-view. Thus far, the company has announced the major matches: the WWE World Title match featuring John Cena vs the Miz, the World Title Match featuring Edge vs Alberto Del Rio, The Undertaker vs Triple H (although the rumored streak vs career stipulation has been ruled out as of now), CM Punk vs Randy Orton, and Michael Cole vs Jerry “The King” Lawler — basically matches that have been heavily hinted over the past few months that were going to take place at the biggest WWE show of the year.
As for the undercard, there is talk that a John Morrison, Kelly Kelly and Trish Stratus vs Dolph Ziggler, Layla and Michelle McCool match-up could be in the works in a six person tag team match, which would make sense considering that Kelly and Trish were involved in an angle with Layla and Michelle McCool at the Elimination Chamber, as well as an opportunity to put Morrison and Ziggler in a major match.
In addition, there are plans for an eight man tag match featuring the Corre members taking on the team of Big Show, Kane, Kofi Kingston and Christian. There were rumors that the Corre was going to face the Nexus, but as we mentioned previously here on WrestleHeat.com, that has been ruled out right now as the Nexus is tied up with the Punk/Orton feud and will likely all be banned from appearing at the show.
Finally, Daniel Bryan is expected to face Sheamus for the United States Championship with Gail Kim in the corner of Bryan and the Bella in the corner of Sheamus, and finally, Rey Mysterio vs Cody Rhodes with the possibility of Dusty Rhodes being involved in the match somehow.
Although there were talks of having a Money in the Bank match this year, as of right now, it doesn’t seem to be happening as the gimmick match now has its own pay-per-view later in the year and the feeling is that the match should be exclusive to the pay-per-view. Plus, the thought is if they are going to have the six person’s tag and the eight man tag match, it won’t be necessary.
