REY MYSTERIO VS. CM PUNK
MASK VS. HAIR AT WRESTLEMANIA 26
At first I was like "wtf guys". But now I'm like, "ohhh that the fuck guys". I get it now. Actually it just took me a sec.
Normally, I would rather have Punk in a headlining-type role for WrestleMania this year, what with him competing in the MITB matches two years in a row. So a match with Mysterio with no real legs as of right now would seem like a downgrade, right?
Punk's current storyline of building a Straight-Edge Society is crazy good. It was until last week's show that I realized that his Jesus-like beard wasn't just a fashion choice. It's clearly a part of the story, and I feel like a dope for missing it.
Luke (biblical name) Gallows is being referred to as Punk's disciple. Just this past week, Punk seems to have recruited another disciple in James (biblical name, an apostle to be exact), a regular fan from the crowd who he "saved" from the evils of alcohol, cigarettes and prescription medication.
If Punk continues recruiting people from the crowd with biblical names (or even the remaining names for the Twelve Apostles... although it'll be tough to convince people that a dude in the crowd is actually named Thaddeus), I will mark the fuck out. Portraying CM Punk as a Jesus Christ character (and if that's not enough, his real name is Phil, another one of Jesus' Twelve Apostles) without overtly stating so will get him more and more heat (as if he needs anymore) as he goes along.
And if this is built strongly towards WrestleMania, and Punk loses to Mysterio and has his head shaved just like the rest of his disciples (or apostles, followers, recruits, whatevs), it will be awesome.
Like a crucifixion.
Er... I don't mean crucifixions are awesome. But this one will be the best one I've ever dun seen!
PLUS, this match could easily steal the show just based on pure wrestling ability, especially if Jericho/Edge doesn't happen, and if Undertaker doesn't have Shawn Michaels to contend with.
DOUBLE PLUS, this feud could start very easily, with maybe Punk looking to save a fan wearing one of Mysterio's masks. And Mysterio had a publicized wellness policy violation last year that Punk could bring up as well. I'm getting more and more excited about this the more I talk about it OMGGUYS.
Punk vs. Rey, hair vs. mask, WrestleMania 26. This should happen.
BRET HART AND SHAWN MICHAELS
VS. TRIPLE H AND VINCE MCMAHON
My original prediction had Bret teaming with the Hart Dynasty to take on DX and Vince, but that obviously is not going to happen. So I'm taking another shot at it!
Bret and Shawn have reconciled. But Triple H and Bret certainly haven't.
A DX split has been seemingly brewing for some time now.
Vince mentioned to Orton that he had security of his own. What better security than his son-in-law and closest and best brah THEDESTROYERTRIPLEH!
It makes a lot of sense match-wise too. Just having Bret vs. Vince wouldn't really work, I don't think. It'd be too risky. And my earlier-predicted six-man tag would require two tag teams to fully turn, which isn't an easy and believable thing to do with the time given.
But with Shawn teaming with Bret and Vince teaming with Hunter, the bulk of the match could be handled by DX, with Bret and Vince hanging out on the apron until it's their time to shine, and get that big pop for the Sharpshooter.
I don't know how it could happen. Maybe some kind of tension at the Rumble. But DX could split, then one night on RAW, Hunter and Vince could lay a beating on Bret until Shawn makes the glorious save.
And I'll cry.
Bret and Shawn vs. Triple H and Vince at WrestleMania 26. This should happen.
