Backstage News on Rumble & Mania Plans, Morrison

Posted by Matt Boone October 4, 2012 8 Comments

- At least some people within WWE expect that John Morrison will return to the company eventually. While Morrison is currently focusing on his acting career, it’s said that neither WWE or TNA is interested in his girlfriend Melina so he’s more likely to end up with the company that will pay him more money.

– With WrestleMania 29 discussions happening within WWE, there is now talk of doing Randy Orton vs. Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Title next year.

Officials are actually trying harder than usual to keep WrestleMania plans for Brock Lesnar, The Rock, John Cena, CM Punk, Triple H and The Undertaker quiet because the idea is they will build the Royal Rumble up into a big show where a lot of different angles will begin or at least everything will fall into place then.

As noted, Rey Mysterio vs. Sin Cara is a likely match. We also noted that Ryback vs. The Undertaker has been discussed a Streak vs. Streak build. Apparently this is a Vince McMahon idea. Other possible opponents for The Undertaker include Brock Lesnar and Triple H. This is unlikely but Punk vs. Taker was at least suggested internally.

      Orton should turn heel at Rumble and go against Sheamus in NO DQ match at Wrestlemania.

      • LBlock18

        Orton is just better as a heel

    • Not Chris Jericho

      Here’s how the card should look

      Mysterio vs. Cara to open
      Wade Barret vs. Sheamus for World Title with Ziggler cashing in during the match
      The Rock vs. Cena II
      Tag Team Title Match
      Gimmick Match, maybe (use Big Show, Orton, Clay, Ryback and other draws here)
      Taker vs. Lesnar vs. Triple H
      CM Punk vs. Ted Dibiase vs. Damien Sandow vs. Cody Rhodes 4 way Elimination

        That is one of the most stupid cards I have ever heard. I think even WWE will draw up a better card than that, and they usually always mess things up hahaha

      I think that it’s either Bryan,Barrett or Orton who should win Rumble.
      And Wrestlemania could look like this:

      1.Ladder match for tag team championships

      2.Sin Cara vs Rey Mysterio (Mask vs Mask match)

      3.Natalya (C) vs Eve vs Alicia Fox (WWE Divas title match)

      4.Heath Slater(C) vs Santino Marella (US championship title match)

      5.Antonio Cesaro(C) vs Christian (IC championship title match)

      6.Randy Orton vs Sheamus(C) (WHC championship title match)

      7.Dolph Ziggler vs Daniel Bryan (No DQ submission match)

      8.CM Punk vs the Rock (WWE championship title match with special guest referee John Cena)
      9.The Undertaker vs Brock Lesnar
