WrestleMania: Leftovers, part one
What do you do if you have Randy Orton, CM Punk, Rey Mysterio, Kane and The Big Show all healthy, not holding a belt, not in contention for belt and you've already axed the Money on the Bank?
Well, you give Orton a feud with CM Punk over something that happened, oh, two years ago. Then, you get Mysterio to accidentally injure the pretty boy. Kane and Big Show? We'll talk about the big guys tomorrow...
Orton punted Punk as he was being interviewed at Unforgiven in 2008. Punk was defending his title, but because of the injury to his head, had to drop out of the match, and, as a result, lose the title. So, since he has nothing better to do at WrestleMania this year, Punk took over The Nexus to get his revenge on Orton.
One by one Orton has taken out Punk's accessories so it will be a fair match. So, what's going to happen Sunday night?
Eh, Punk could simply because Orton has had the upper hand in eliminating The Nexus. That would make The Nexus stronger, and perhaps that's why we don't have a Nexus v. The Corre match this year (once again, lack of confidence in the future?).
When Cody Rhodes starting calling himself "Dashing," we knew it wouldn't be long until somebody did something to damage his face. Enter Mysterio and his 619...
The 619 broke Rhodes nose, keeping him out of the Royal Rumble, and keeping him out of contention for World Heavyweight Champion. So, what's the next best way to get that WrestleMania paycheck? Get Daddy's help and seek revenge.
Now, I'm pretty sure Dusty won't interfere with the actual match, but I won't be surprised if he's backstage and put on camera prepping his son. However, I don't think it's going help.
What may help is interference of another kind: Sin Cara. There has been a lot of observer talk about the similarities between the two masked wrestlers since WWE acquired Sin Cara, and even questions over whether he is replacing Mysterio.
It's very likely Sin Cara will not make his debut until after WrestleMania, but that's what we're expecting. If he will be put in an angle with Mysterio, I think it would be interesting to see it start Sunday night either during the match or immediately following the match.
And who knows? Maybe all that observation is wrong, and the two won't be rivals, but best buddies who eventually end up facing Kane and Big Show in a double David and Goliath match...
