Antonio Cesaro’s Status For WrestleMania 29, Surprises Planned For WM29 & More

– WWE and the Make-A-Wish Foundation will be bringing 38 children to WrestleMania 29.

– There are reportedly several surprises planned for WrestleMania 29, including at least one heel turn.

– WWE United States Champion Antonio Cesaro is still without a match at WrestleMania 29, which has a lot of fans wondering how one of WWE’s top wrestlers could be overlooked at the biggest show of the year.

As recently as a few weeks ago, there was talk of Cesaro wrestling Sin Cara at WrestleMania, but Sin Cara’s recent concussion sidelined those plans. Sin Cara is now cleared to wrestle, so it’s possible we’ll see this match on the 1-hour pre-show.

    Hopefully that Heel turn is Cena. But I think we all know its gonna be Orton.

    • SOBI

      Yeah If Orton RKOs or Punts Sheamus
      The whole stadium will explode with Cheer

      • Mania57

        Not as much as if Cena turned heel. Metlife would be torched!

        • SOBI

          Yes Cena turning Heel
          has become a sort of Fantasy for wrestling fans
          It would indeed be very awesome

    • Mai

      We also like Randy Orton heel.

  • raven

    unless that is sin caras last match in wwe what a slap in the face of the most solid all around performer wwe has. Cesaro deserves to be in there with Jericho and I think they would end up stealing the show with nothing more than a classic wrestling match

  • Hairzy1990

    What I’ve read the WM29 Pre Show will be Wade Barrett vs The Miz for the IC Championship! I mean c’mon put Antonio on the Pre Show & also the diva match if it’s 1 hour at least & give Wade a proper WrestleMania match for once!

  • Dave Smith

    Its obvious that the heel turn is Orton and i hope we get to see cesaro in action at mania

  • SOBI

    It makes me very sad that Big E and Fandangoo Both have matches In WM but
    Cesaro, Saindow and Cody dont :(

    • yo

      Sandow and Rhodes do fucktard

      • SOBI

        ok my mistake
        still sad about cesaro though

        • yo

          didn’t expect that response, sorry to be a dick SOBI.

          • SOBI

            haha No problem :)

    • Randy James Crawford

      Are you stupid watch Raw and you’ll see that Sandow, Rhodes are teaming with the Bella Twins.

      • SOBI

        yes my bad

        • pl4life24

          Jeez, give SOBI a break… An honest mistake

      • Feelmemore

        Are you stupid maybe he didn’t see that.

    • Feelmemore

      Just wait and see what Fandango and Big E are capable of. I’m disappointed in them dropping the ball with Cesaro, but it could end up being awesome regardless.

    Surprise heel turn… Randy Orton?

    For all PPVs (especially the “crown jewels” Rumble, Mania, and SummerSlam) all of the titles should be on the line during the event.

  • General Disarray

    Tons of fans my ass! Nobody cares about Cesaro, the guy is boring as hell to watch. Him and Sin Cara ar right where they belong, the pre-show.

  • Seachai Chan

    I don’t care about Antonio Cesaro.

  • Rashad Jackson

    There are reportedly several surprises planned for WrestleMania 29, including at least one heel turn.

    as long as punk DOES NOT!! WIN! vs. taker i am good!! cuz NO ONE!! IN THIS CURRENT ERA/Roster shud NEVER BE ALLOWED TO END THE STREAK! the only person who shud end the streak is lesnar!!! but that shud not!! and NEVER HAPPEN!

  • Kenneth Anderson Jr.

    They said at least one heel turn so the solidifies Orton’s heel turn. Now if only they can grow some balls and confirm Cena’s heel turn.

  • satishwarne708

    They drop the ball with Antonio and Miz that should be on WM29 card straight away.Now both Miz 7 Wade Barret are off the main show.And yet Brodus Cay and co are in it.But thats WWE for you.Nice job guys.

  • JamieEvsxx

    hmmm…several surprises?…well this should be fun…or like TNA where the surprises Dixie has are either not that surprising or just not really worth the hype…ok guys I don’t know whether I’m excited or scared!…AHHH WHY CAN’T WRESTLEMANIA BE ON NOW?!?!…D=

  • Thomas Powless

    They woun’t turn Cena heel becuase of his work with the Make-A-Wish foundation.

  • David Raisanen

    Cessaro is fun to watch. Very athletic with a good move set. He can sell with the best of them. I also think he also has developed well into his heel character. Sandow and Rhoades do have a match, but a very sad one with all the crap around them. Clay and Albert have NOOOO business being in a Wrestlemania match. Henry and Ryback do absolutely nothing for me.
