After Super Bowl and the Academy Awards take place, attention moves to the annual and traditional Wrestlemania–at least in the wrestling world. Wrestlemania XXVIII (28) is happening on April 1, 2012 and a few tickets are still available. It is going to take place at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. Though Wrestlemania is an entire 3-4 hours of entertainment, thus far only four matches have been announced. No doubt the bookers, scriptwriters and the McMahon dynasty are all eagerly planning the show.
It doesn’t look like anything’s going to outshine the main event: The Rock, a Hollywood action star, is going to do battle with John Cena. This feud has been building for a while, as The Rock has been trash talking John Cena for a long time now. Since last Wrestlemania, The Rock has been getting involved in physical action and has even “Rock-Bottomed” John Cena, costing him important victories. The Rock and Cena actually teamed up at Survivor Series 2011 to defeat The Miz and R-Truth, but that didn’t stop The Rock from attacking Cena following their victory.
Another main event will see old pros the Undertaker and Triple H in a Hell in a Cell match. No, you’re not experiencing déjà vu. The Undertake and Triple H fought last year, which saw Taker keep his undefeated Wrestlemania streak by making Triple H submit. Of course, Triple H may have gotten the last laugh since he walked away from the match while the Undertaker had to be carried out on a stretcher! Taker only returned to the WWE on January 30, 2012 and immediately challenged Triple H to a rematch at WrestleMania XXVIII. As wrestling fans know, the Hell in the Cell match is often times the deadliest type of match in the sport, one that sees all sorts of huge falls, bloodied faces and career-ending injuries.
Last but not least, Chris Jericho who recently returned to the WWE (after lying and saying he wasn’t coming back) is now facing proverbial truth-teller CM Punk. CM Punk has garnered a lot of attention for his in-your-face attitude, but Jericho asserts that he’s just stealing his shtick.
What will happen at Wrestlemania 28? You can see it on PPV…or look for last minute tickets for a live showing!
