Should be interesting
I'm not convinced that WWE is intent on having Batista walk out of WrestleMania as champion.
If Guardians of the Galaxy isn't coming out until August 1, why do most people think WWE is hotshotting the title on Batista at WrestleMania? Right now he's only scheduled through Extreme Rules and considering his limited dates will probably not be scheduled for the mid-to-late May European tour, meaning if he has the belt he'd be missing approximately two weeks of dates, including the Raw/Smackdown in England.
I am assuming WWE wants Batista to walk around with the title during promotional appearances for the movie like The Rock did last year, so wouldn't it make more sense to put the belt on him at Money in the Bank (June 29) or Battleground (July 20)?

1. Internet access has been hit or miss these last couple of weeks.2. If the WWE is terrified of Batista being a casualty of their war against the fans who want Bryan, why not fucking pair them up? Especially since that means Kane vs Batista, which would sell far more than Batista versus Alberto Del Rio3.Similarly, they should have done the following for how Batista came back: The entire show is basically HHH and Steph going “Batista is coming! Batista is coming!” and Orton panicking out of paranoia that HHH and Steph are going to fuck him over and get the belts onto Batista. Also, we get told Bryan is “banned” from the arena because of his concussion, which HHH is using as an excuse to get rid of him for as long as humanly possible (see his interaction with Edge early in the current storyline). Finally, the show ends with Batista apparently jilting HHH and HHH being furious, until Batista appears on the big screen…. WITH Danial Bryan. Batista reminds everyone he’s no fucking fool when it comes to HHH and his bullshit of burying people and has manipulated HHH into signing him for obscene amount of cash and to a Big Show-type “can do whatever he wants” contract. And they top off their middle finger salute to HHH by showing hidden camera footage Batista recorded, when he was negotiating his contract to come back, where HHH basically flat out says that he is sick and tired of Orton being a fuck-up who can’t beat Bryan without massive cheating/HHH flat out overturning the match result with trumped up bullshit, that he’s going to betray Orton by signing him and Batista to a match and “screwing him worse than me and Shawn and Vince screwed Brett”. Also, HHH is caught offering Steph to Batista for sex, pointing out that (between “friends”) Steph is a whore and HHH is perfectly fine with her fucking around, since they have a “Profit”* style arrangement where they can fuck other people on the side, but that whoever basically decides to end the marriage to marry their fuck buddy, has to give up all of the couple’s assets to the other in the divorce. Maybe even toss in HHH admitting that the reason she was tormenting Big Show like she was, was due to the fact that the two were on-again/off-again fuck buddies until Big Show ended their casual sex relationship.Orton goes apeshit and we get the storyline where Orton and HHH are now actively at odds with each other but forced to work together because neither one can keep their current position without the other as well as the perfect excuse to write Steph out: she’s basically exposed, irrefutably as a whore and decides to take off after being humiliated like she was by Bryan.The Authority is in chaos, Batista wins the Rumble (and we get Batista/Bryan vs Orton/Kane at Elimination Chamber with Bryan pinning Orton) and Vince finally comes back, realizing that HHH has run things into the ground, humiliated his daughter, and aligned himself with a psychopathic monster like Orton. So Vince decides to have HHH vs Bryan (now medically cleared) at WM, with HHH’s job and career on the line.Bryan beats HHH, not just in decisive fashion, but like a bitch. HHH loses in ten-twelve seconds and then we get a full-on “HHH being buried like a bitch” send-off, complete with HHH being tossed into a garbage truck and driven off, not to be seen again in two-three years.Afterwords, Vince annoints Bryan the new face of the company and THEN we get the haircut and shave, as Bryan slowly lets himself be seduced by Vince. Shawn Michaels is reduced to being Bryan’s much abused manservant (resurrect the plot point of Shawn being HORRIBLE with his money and Bryan wanting revenge on him) and slowly phase us back towards Bryan the self-absorbed egomaniac and having him abuse Shawn Michaels to the point that we WANT to see him and Bryan fight in terms of them having a legit issue against the other.(Further tying into that, as Bryan goes towards the dark side, Batista and Punk restart their bromance that was mentioned during the Punk/Cena feud of 2011 and we get them versus Bryan and his manservant Shawn Michaels, with the Tag Titles becoming involved as far as Batista and Punk while Cena is left playing clean-up with Orton, who has gone full-blown rabid after losing the belt to Batista and watching HHH being fired and Vince telling him to fuck-off as Bryan takes his spot. We can also get Batista vs Kane, with Kane being jealous that Bryan has replaced him and Kane being forced to don the mask again after being fired from his cushy job as a suit when Vince cleans house of all HHH loyalists.)That gives us the stage for the spring/summerBryan’s descent back to villainy as he vanquishes HHH and becomes the face of the companyBatista vs Kane and the slow unravelling of his friendship with BryanShawn Michaels going through seven shades of hell as Bryan’s bitch boy slave to justify a match between the two later in the fallBatista/Punk Vs Bryan/ShawnCena vs Orton as the coda for the fall of OrtonVince back in charge as a tweener typeBrock can fight Undertaker and lose and be dragged into a coffin and buried alive, never to be seen again*Wonder how many blog of doomers will get that cult tv reference
Holy SHIT. If Rock takes an F5 and does the job then this show will be legendary. Plus BIG DAVE is there too. Take all my money WWE!
Brock Lesnar is in negotiations with WWE to appear at Sunday’sWrestleMania XXVIII pay-per-view event at Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida. The odds of the three-time WWE Champion appearing at show are ‘more than 50/50.’
I’m all for Lesnar coming back to the WWE. The WWE has lacked a dominant big man since Umaga that could put on great matches as well. At his peak, Lesnar was one of the best big mans in wrestling. He understood how to work as a big man, stay in character during his match, tell a story, and still put on an entertaining match….which is all very rare for a big man, especially in this era of wrestling.
It will be interesting to see what he’ll do at Wrestlemania if he shows up. I’ve heard rumors of Rock vs. Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 29, so it’s possible that he screws Rock out of his match against John Cena. I also wonder if Vince McMahon has the grapefruits for Lesnar to do a “I’m better than everyone here because I was UFC champion” gimmick. That would get serious heat.
