I groaned within the first 20 minutes of Raw last night.
My fears were nearly confirmed in the last five.
The main event at WrestleMania will be a triple threat match- The Rock v. Cena v. CM Punk.
Why else would they start and end the show with the three-way rivalry?
And, it makes sense. First, what was Punk going to do? Some speculated he would face Taker, but I'm not sure how that would have made sense. Another idea would be for a fight with Brock Lesnar over Paul Heyman's attention, but that really should have somehow started last night.
Second, at the press conference for WrestleMania 30 yesterday, there were hints of a Rock/Cena main event in the Superdome. If that's the plan, then something or someone would have to interfere with the current plans.
I'm guessing now that if Taker is coming back for WrestleMania, he will join up with Sheamus and Ryback to defeat The Shield. That way, when The Shield finally loses, it will be to Taker, accomplishing two things: prove Taker still is a force, and putting the young guys over more by showing only the deadman can beat them. It will also make Taker's possible singles match at the 30th anniversary even more impactful.
