Brie Bella 08:57

Vicki Guerrero 02:11
Teddy Long 01:53
Paul Heyman 01:43
Kurt Warner 01:12
Brad Maddox 01:07
Brock Lesnar 01:18

Again, if Wrestlemania were booked solely on the basis of those superstars with the most amount of exposure, as of right now, assuming an eight-match card, Wrestlemania XXX would consist of the following matches:

  • Dolph Ziggler (with AJ Lee) v. Sheamus
  • John Cena v. Randy Orton
  • Jack Swagger (with Zeb Colter) v. Fandango (with his dancer)
  • Chris Jericho, Brodus Clay, and Tensai v. The Shield
  • Alberto Del Rio (with Ricardo Rodriguez) v. Kofi Kingston
  • Mark Henry v. Big E Langston
  • Wade Barrett and Big Show v. Team Hell No
  • Miz and Cameron v. Yoshi Tatsu and Naomi

And, shocker, the Undertaker has dropped off the card. If I consolidated these matches somehow to include one more (like maybe Wade Barrett, Big Show, Miz and Cameron v. Team Hell No, Yoshi Tatsu, and Naomi), the next match to be included would be Undertaker v. Triple H. Interesting.
