This week on RAW, we may have seen the groundwork laid for one of the top matches at WrestleMania XXVI. It’s been assumed for months that Bret Hart’s return to WWE would culminate at WrestleMania in some sort of match with Vince McMahon. Bret’s physical abilities are not what they once were due to a series of concussions and a stroke several years ago, so his physical involvement would be limited and a Street Fight match was discussed.
On RAW, Bret Hart confronted Vince McMahon and was ready to extract revenge before he was attached by none other than Batista. McMahon ordered Batista to restraint Hart and then got his own revenge on Bret Hart for something he did at Survivor Series 1997 by spitting in the Hit Man’s face. The crowd in Nashville went wild, chanting for John Cena as the show went off the air. (What Happened After RAW) The angle was red hot and unfolded with a level of excitement rarely seen on WWE television these days.
With that match looking likely, here’s an updated list of WrestleMania matches we’ve heard talked about among WWE employees:
Bret Hart and John Cena vs. Vince McMahon and Batista
Edge vs. Chris Jericho
Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker
Triple H vs. Sheamus
Randy Orton vs. Ted DiBiase vs. Cody Rhodes
CM Punk vs. Rey Mysterio (Hair vs. Mask)
