We're closing in on Wrestlemania and the card is shaping up ... some of it's interesting, some of it involves Randy Orton :)

The top matches seem to be:

Brock Lesnar vs. Seth Rollins
Becky Lynch vs. Rhonda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair
Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston
Roman Reigns vs. Drew McIntyre
HHH vs. Batista
AJ Styles vs. Randy Orton
The Miz vs. Shane McMahon
Finn Balor vs. Lashley
Kurt Angle in a retirement match vs .  John Cena? Undertaker? 

There's been some talk of Samoa Joe vs. Cena too

And of course a tag match or two and the battle royals.

I don't think Undertaker will be involved 

He's taking outside of WWE  bookings and seems to be very involved in his church his last two interviews were w that church's pastor.  

And Deadman Talking was filed by Conrad Thompson since Conrad is friends w Tony Kahn (way prior to AEW) and the Bucks and Rhodes  I could see him popping up  in AEW under his real name 

Besides Kofi and Charlotte  getting their moments tho I doubt both get a title win the rest of the card just seems ho hum. 

Cena and Joe could be good if they play into their history they both started together in California

Late in the game (ie, this close to Wrestlemania), if Undertaker is involved, it'll be a surprise appearance or run-in rather than an actual match.

If Undertaker does go to AEW, my money is on it being after he retires as a wrestler and never has an actual match there. In other words, probably as an authority figure.

The Oliver piece is pretty entertaining. Old news to most of us I imagine but good to see it pushed to the surface again.

Also, Brutus Beefcake was announced for the HOF today - given the date, I assumed it was an April Fool's Joke (which as of now, it isn't.)

Yeah....

This year's crop of inductees is a bit thin. While it is good that Chyna will be inducted as a member of D-Generation X, she really should get in solo at some point. 

My guess is that the Hart Foundation is going in as a way to get Jim Neidhart in, and Beefcake is getting in because Hulk Hogan will most likely be the one who inducts him. (Sadly, not Kimberly Page....)

Honky Tonk Man should have been in years ago, but if I remember right he actually turned it down a few times in the past.

As if on cue, it was announced today that Hogan will induct Beefcake (like there was any doubt.)
