    I refuse to believe this since I was told Ziggler would face Shane and Kevin and Sami would be in the Andre Battle Royal

    And how long ago were you told that? Wrestlemania (like most of WWE) has a pretty fluid booking process right up to the event, so believing more recent rumors that make more storyline sense (Ziggler and Shane have had zero interaction as of late) is probably a safer bet.

    Exactly @Bill! These sheets LIED TO US!!!

    On the serious side, this is stacking up to be a 9-hour card. Already, what, 13 matches with more to be announced? SD! Tag titles still need a match, and I wouldn’t be surprised that if the Wyatt/Hardy “Ultimate Deletion” thingy pans out and is a hit that we see some kind of rematch at Mania. we’re staring at a potential for 15 matches on the card…! LAWD!! 2 battle royals? I love the equality thing, but why does every men’s match have to have a female equivalent? Why not book a women’s PPV, a ladies Starrcade, and have the battle royal there? It’s getting to the point where WrestleMania is so long they are impossible to watch twice. If you miss it live, good luck! Seriously, who has the time to re-watch the last three or four Manias aside from select matches? The bloody Super Bowl is shorter than WrestleMania anymore! Yeesh!!

    Makes no sense to make it a triple threat, come on. They almost killed him so why make it a simple triple threat. You guys frickin’ believe everything you read
