Wrestlemania 29 Matches List: The Rock Headlining Again But Event Still Looks Boring [PREVIEW & VIDEO]

By Staff Reporter, Posted: 04/05/13 03:51PM EDT

The Wrestlemania 29 matches list for this Sunday's event from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey looks boring. The "Showcase of the Immortals" will feature nine matches and while just having a match on the card is an honor, all eyes will be on the WWE Title match between John Cena and The Rock.

While this show is the WWE's biggest show of the year, this year's show may be the most anti-climactic and predictable 'Mania in some time. There are no major surprises that the show can create unless the WWE drastically changes the way they write their shows. Can something unexpected happen? Of course it can. Do I see anything unlikely happening? Not at all.

We will go over the top four matches for this year's Wrestlemania with predictions for these matches. These will be just opinions on what I think we will happen when I'm sitting in my seat watching at MetLife Stadium. Feel free to disagree, this time of year is meant for debate about the direction of a product we have grown up watching.

Our first match to preview is:

Jack Swagger vs. Alberto Del Rio for Del Rio's World Heavyweight Championship: This match outcome was set when Swagger was arrested for DUI and marijuana possession just a week into this angle. While this angle bought the company a little mainstream exposure and has fans talking, the WWE will not reward Swagger's arrest with a title run. De Rio wins the match and Swagger's push ends. But in an added note, Dolph Ziggler has been holding on to his Money in the Bank briefcase for a very long time. I'm starting think that Sunday will be cash in time for Ziggler and the World Heavyweight Championship. Del Rio should watch his back.

Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H in a No Holds Barred Match: This match will be hard-hitting and will not be a "wrestling match" for fans. While Triple H walked to ring in a leather jacket and a t-shirt, everyone knows that he has accumulated a lot of power in the WWE behind the scenes wearing a suit, with many believing that he will take over the company when Vince McMahon steps down (that may not ever happen). Triple H already only wrestles once or maybe twice a year so his focus is on the business side of the WWE. Lesnar will win and Triple H will continue being groomed for the top spot in the company.

CM Punk vs. The Undertaker: This is the one match that has me questioning my pick. While The Undertaker only wrestles once a year, he is 48 years old and coming off numerous injuries. It wasn't clear whether he would even wrestle at this year's show due to his body still recovering from last year's Hell in a Cell match against Triple H. When CM Punk was selected to face The Undertaker, many people began to think that Punk may be the one to end the streak and The Undertaker would retire. The problem with that logic is that Punk is taking time off from the WWE after the show. The WWE would want the man who vanquished the Undertaker to be on television every week proclaiming his greatness, not home recovering from wear and tear. Undertaker will continue the streak until next year when John Cena ends it because why not, he wins all the time anyway.

John Cena vs. The Rock for Rock's WWE Championship: This brings me to the main-event of the evening. Cena will win the match due to him pretty much saying that 2013 is the year of Cena. The Rock will go back to making movies but the problem happens after the match. What should happen is The Rock retaining setting up a match for Extreme Rules for the title, which gives the WWE another huge main event. But that won't happen and reports have Cena starting a program with Ryback after Wrestlemania. WHAT!? Ladies and gentlemen, get set for another reign of Cena where he tells funny jokes and plays SuperCena for a long while. Cena goes over Rock in a decent match but not as good as there "Once in a Lifetime" match (really, once should mean once) at last year's Wrestlemania.
