200 days till WrestleMania XXVIII
Today isn’t just National Cream-Filled Doughnut Day (what, you didn’t know?); it’s also officially 200 days until WrestleMania XXVIII on April 1, 2012.
The countdown that began the day after WrestleMania XXVII with the announcement of John Cena and The Rock’s blockbuster bout is moving full speed ahead. At the 200-day milestone mark on the Road to WrestleMania, WWE.com looks into a hazy crystal ball in an attempt to predict how the rest of The Biggest Spectacle of Them All main events might shape up.
John Cena vs. The
Rock with special guest referee CM Punk
The truly epic clash between the sports-entertainment’s greatest titans, The Cenation Commander-in-Chief and The People’s Champion, is exciting enough for the WWE Universe to mobilize to Miami on April 1. This includes CM Punk, whose used his so-called handheld “pipe bomb” to criticize the WrestleMania XXVIII main event. The Straight Edge Superstar may not be able to squeeze himself into the action, but he’d make a most impartial guest referee in that he presumably loathes both John Cena and The Rock equally. As long as the WWE Universe gets to see Punk compete in his own confrontation at WrestleMania earlier in the night, The Straight Edge Superstar could be the genuine X-factor in this match for the ages.

Champion Randy Orton vs. Daniel Bryan
Daniel Bryan has made it perfectly clear that he intends on carrying his Money in the Bank briefcase all the way to WrestleMania, where the submission specialist will aim to lock up the World Heavyweight Championship. If Randy Orton can withstand the challenge of Mark Henry this Sunday, The Viper will have just 195 days until The Show of Shows in Miami, where he’d meet The American Dragon with SmackDown’s richest prize at stake.
Alberto Del Rio vs. Big Show
There’s something about current WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio – arguably, the real deal – that makes you believe he can cling to the WWE Title for a fairly long time, by hook or by crook. The Mexican Aristocrat has taken out Rey Mysterio (twice) and been instrumental in the fall of Big Show – the angry giant who’ll be striving to be back in time for WrestleMania … not to mention some vengeance. Picture it now: The World’s Largest Athlete winning the big one on The Grandest Stage of Them All.
