WrestleMania 29 will feature WWE’s next generation of Super Stars. With Ryback leading the way, WWE is setting up for the future by featuring new talent on their largest event of the year. Two of the wrestlers on that list are actually making their in-ring television debuts at WrestleMania 29.
No pressure. Right?
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to meet & work with many of these wrestlers. Each of them are very deserving of being able to perform on the grandest stage of them all – WrestleMania.
Let’s take a look at the next generation of the WWE.
Fandango: Formerly known as Johnny Curtis, Fandango has been given significant television time leading up to WrestleMania. Not only that, but he will actually make his official in-ring debut at WrestleMania against Chris Jericho. Very few debut at WrestleMania.
Big E Langston: Speaking of debuting at WrestleMania, Big E will finally make his in-ring debut as well. He is the strongest man in the state of Florida & has the largest pectoral muscles I have ever seen in my life. With a shot at the WWE Tag Team Championship against Team Hell No, Big E could solidify his position as part of the next generation.
Dolph Ziggler & AJ Lee: The Tag Team Championships aren’t nearly as important for Dolph as they are for Big E. Dolph has been teetering back & forth from WWE’s main event scene for a while. Could WrestleMania be the night Mr. Money in the Bank cashes in?
The Shield: All three members of The Shield will be making their WrestleMania debuts tomorrow night. Roman Reigns is a rookie to the wrestling world, having only wrestled for 2 years. Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose were independent wrestling super stars, in their own right. The Shield will debut at WrestleMania against three of WWE’s top stars – Randy Orton, Sheamus & Big Show. A victory would be huge for The Shield.
Ryback: Ryback leads the next generation of World Wrestling Entertainment. He will go one on one with Mark Henry, The World’s Strongest Man. With a victory over Henry, Ryback will finally get his illustrious WrestleMania moment.
WrestleMania is where legends are made. Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, The Rock, John Cena & Mr. WrestleMania himself – Shawn Michaels… the list goes on. Which next generation WWE Super Star will live forever?
