CM Punk Scheduled To Headline WrestleMania 29, The Big Show’s Greatest Accomplishments, Lance Storm

– As recently as last week, WWE creative was forwarding storylines with the idea that CM Punk will be featured in the closing match of WrestleMania 29.

– Promoting his World Heavyweight Championship Match against Sheamus this Sunday at Survivor Series, the official WWE website has published an article chronicling Big Show’s seven greatest moments. WWE states

“Sheamus is hungry to reclaim the World Heavyweight Championship from Big Show’s colossal clutches at Survivor Series, but given Show’s formidable history, he’d be wise not to underestimate the giant a second time. Here are seven reminders of why Big Show won the “Big Gold Title” to begin with … and why he may still have it when all is said and done on Sunday.”

Feats listed are becoming the youngest WCW World Heavyweight Champion in history at 23-years-old, his 1999 WWE debut, becoming WWE Champion for the first time, capturing the ECW World Heavyweight Championship, successfully defending the Unified Tag Team Championship against R-Truth and John Morrison at WrestleMania XXVI, winning the Intercontinental Championship at WrestleMania XXVIII, and defeating Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship at Hell in a Cell.

– Former WWE Superstar Lance Storm appeared on Over the Top Radio to discuss a number of wrestling topics. Listen below:

  • Steven Harris

    I can see him facing Ryback for the title.

  • Lord Spliffmeister

    Rock vs Punk The rematch make it happen!!! XD

  • Emp

    “Big Gold Title” feels so awkward and wrong.

  • dae

    Punk in the main event… I hope he isn’t wearing the title strap at that point… His story line is about as lame as the “affair” story line between AJ and Cena…

  • Stranger

    CM Punk should definitely main event Wrestlemania for the first time ever.

  • BrahmaBullRKO

    Make it Punk vs Rock for the FIRST time and I’m sold.

  • AngelFlow

    Please make Rock vs Punk for WrestleMania. Imagine the promos between these two :D

  • pwnez

    CM Punk has been champion for nearly a year now, he damn well deserves to be in the final match at WrestleMania.

  • Andrew Campbell

    Punk deserves to be in the closing match at WrestleMania next year. He’s earned it.

  • Craig DeBoard

    Punk should hold the title until Wrestlemania. Let him beat The Rock at the Rumble. With everyone expecting The Rock to win, it would be a nice swerve. Then have Punk finally lose the title at Mania like a good heel should.


    CM Punk in the closing match at a WM? Punk is lucky that it’s a NY/NJ crowd.

  • Swag Daddy

    Well then to me that pretty much spells Punk Vs. Rock but honestly he could co main event just so just perhaps at WM 30 he and SCSA can go toe to toe in the main event since Steve says he can see him doing it.

  • felixrt

    Considering how many big names are apparently competing at next year’s WrestleMania, Punk had better be up against a megastar like Rocky or Stone Cold, or else I suspect we’ll be in for a near-heatless main event a la HHH/Y2J or Lesnar/Angle. Him and Y2J only managed to draw the crowd back in for the final few minutes of their match this year after following up HHH/’Taker, so we’ll see if he has better luck next year.

  • MisterE

    Personally, I rather see CM Punk go up against someone who deserves to be in the main event, not some former ex wrestler movie star. Let Punk have a great match with a wrestler who has been puttin in the work and effort, someone who deserves to shine at WM29.

  • MisterE

    As far as this so called controversy regarding the fake heart attack, people keep saying Punk and Heyman are worng and f’kd up for the heat, but don’tcha think Jerry the King knew what was going to go down, don’tcha think they discussed with Jerry long before it happened, and who’s to say that Jerry himself didn’t conjure up the ideal himself. We all seen a lot more worst and despicable heat angles, so get over it, it’s just a show and controversy sells.

  • JJ20

    ok it goes from Rock vs Cena 2 then to Rock vs Punk 2? i thought Rock & Punk have never battled before? then it changes to Rock vs Cena 3? Cena & Rock only went 1 round at ‘Mania

    • Mikey robins

      well read it again idiot. Christ, they say it might be rock vs cena two at rr and then again at mania creating the 3rd match ? DUH

  • go guys

    NO, make it austin screws punk and :

    austin vs punk
    Cena vs rock (c)

    headlining wrestlemania 29

    You guys might not like rock vs cena but its the perfect way to get cena to the top again and he could lose it down the road to someone on the rise such as sandown creating a superstar main event and also makes the rock leave properly since he has so many movies

    Also :
    Rey vs Sin Cara ( heel )

    Brock vs taker
    Sheamus (c) vs Orton ( heel )

    Miz vs Dolph Ziggler ( Ziggler dropped title at RR after cashing in at TLC)
    and others maybe bring in a celebritiy

    Just my opinion guys don’t get all butthurt if you don’t like that opinion

    this could be the greatest wrestlemania of all time. Wrestlemania 20 imo sets the benchmark. Please comment back, love, hate, other matches etc would like to know all your opinions

    • Braf

      maybe 3mb vs 3 horsemen

      • go guys

        GOOD IDEA

    • Layla

      I think Daniel bryan turning heel could work vs kane

      • go guys

        yes true that would be good, could be kanes last wrestlemania
