WWE Rumors: Wrestlemania 29 Card in Turmoil?
Jack Swagger’s DUI arrest late Monday night may have not only screwed his major push in the WWE but it also could have a serious effect on the card for Wrestlemania 29.
Going into the week, the Wrestlemania card read The Rock versus John Cena, Alberto Del Rio against Jack Swagger, CM Punk taking on the undefeated at Wrestlemania Undertaker and Brock Lesnar versus Triple H. Swagger’s issues, and possible suspension, will kill the match against Del Rio and leave a champion without an opponent at Wrestlemania 29. Undertaker working the event is also still an uncertainty — though a deal should get done shortly.
WWE superstars who currently don’t have a Wrestlemania 29 match, include Ryback, Sheamus, Mark Henry, Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler, Big Show, Daniel Bryan, Kane and possibly a returning Chris Jericho.
Will any of those superstars step in at Wrestlemania 29 for Swagger or a no-show Undertaker? Punk versus Jericho would make the most sense given the history between the two and Jericho returning as a heel to take on Del Rio would also make sense.
WWE brass expects the event to still be a huge success given it’s being held in MetLife stadium (not far from NYC) and marks the return of WWE legend Bruno Sammartino.
