#234. WrestleMania XXVI Takes Shape


I'm liking how WrestleMania XXVI is shaping.

Edge vs. Chris Jericho
This one puts Jericho back in the main event, for the first time since 2002, when he became glorified fodder for Triple H's big return. It works for both wrestlers nicely.

John Cena vs. Batista
Again, it works for both wrestlers. Cena has never really had a match tailor-made for him at WrestleMania, not like Batista, whose match against Triple H in 2005 is a fine way to reflect on just how far both of these guys have gone in five years. This is a dream match, moreso than Cena-Orton.

Bret Hart vs. Mr. McMahan
Better than the ones McMahon has had with Hogan or HBK at WrestleMania, this one can potentially work really well for both, no matter what either is currently capable of doing in the ring. That it's happening at all is still ridiculously remarkable.

CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio
Love the fact that Punk is having his first solo match at WrestleMania. He's certainly earned it. Who better than Rey to compete against, right?

MizShow vs. John Morrison & R-Truth
This one won't technically be announced until tonight, but if this one actually gets on the actual WrestleMania card, I couldn't be happier for Morrison. Unless he somehow got a singles match. Maybe he slips into Money in the Bank, too, wins that, and gets a long-awaited heavyweight title shot?


Anyway, in non-wrestling thoughts, I think I'm finally pursuing a graduate degree. I've sent a feeler out to the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS), so we'll see where that goes. It just be a huge answer for my personal life.
