Powell's Blog: Potential top WrestleMania 26 matchups
Feb 2, 2010 - 02:38 PM


Tuesday, February 2 – 2:38 P.M. (CT)

There's a lot of mystery regarding what the WrestleMania 26 card will be. Although we didn't get any firm answers on Monday's Raw, WWE gave us just enough to make me believe there's a good chance we'll see some of the following matches at the big show on March 28.

Sheamus vs. Triple H for the WWE Championship: All signs point to John Cena being involved in another storyline, which frees up Sheamus for his mentor Hunter. My guess is that something will happen in the Elimination Chamber to set up the story between these two.

Chris Jericho vs. Edge for the World Hvt. Championship: I've been saying for months that Undertaker and Shawn Michaels don't need the World Hvt. Championship. They have Taker's streak and the momentum of last year's WrestleMania match on their side. Meanwhile, Edge kept this storyline with Jericho alive by responding on Monday's Raw to the jabs that were taken at him while he was sidelined. My guess is that Shawn Michaels does something at the Elimination Chamber to eliminate Taker from the match, which ultimately leads to Jericho winning the title.

Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels: WWE has hyped this match to the extent that it would be a huge letdown if it's not on the WrestleMania card. Sure, the World Hvt. Championship would enhance the match, but it would do much more to make one of the other matches seem more prestigious. Furthermore, Edge is challenging the champion of his choosing, and the best way to get to a match between him and Jericho is having the latter capture the title between now and WrestleMania.

John Cena and Bret Hart vs. Batista and Vince McMahon: Will it be a tag match or a situation where Bret and Vince are in the corners of their handpicked wrestlers with the stipulation that Hart needs Cena to win in order to get his hands on Vince? My money is on the tag match because one of the big WrestleMania moments will be Bret making his entrance in his full wrestling gear. One way or another, my guess is that these four will be involved in some type of match together.

Money in the Bank: I won't waste time speculating over which wrestlers will actually be in the match. Rather, I'll just tell you who I would give the win to. If Edge is going to beat Jericho for the World Hvt. Championship, then I'd get the ECW Title off Christian, move him to Smackdown, and give him the win here. How much fun would it be to see Christian and Edge reunite and slowly build to the inevitable moment where Christian turns on his longtime friend by cashing in the MITB contract?

Randy Orton vs. Ted DiBiase vs. Cody Rhodes in a Triple Threat match: This might be wishful thinking given that Cody appears to be the odd man out given that he's not in the Elimination Chamber match. Still, I think they could have a lot of fun teasing the potential alliances heading into the match. That said, I won't complain if we get a strong singles match between Orton and DiBiase.

The rest of the card: There are rumors of a C.M. Punk vs. Rey Mysterio in a hair vs. mask match that would be a lot of fun. I'd love to see The Miz and Big Show capture the Unified Tag Titles on Monday and then face The Hart Dynasty or perhaps John Morrison and a tag team partner. If WWE doesn't want to showcase some of the better female workers, then how about just handing them a WrestleMania payoff and spare us the silliness of a bad gimmick match involving all the Divas?
