As of this past weekend, these were the planned top four matches for WrestleMania 29:
- The Rock vs. John Cena (WWE Title)
- Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger (World Heavyweight title)
- CM Punk vs. The Undertaker
- Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H
While Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H is more or less set, the rest could change by WrestleMania. There is still no word on The Undertaker’s status. If he doesn’t work the show, Punk could be added to the Rock/Cena match.

A Ryback vs. Chris Jericho (as a heel) match was planned, but it wasn’t teased this past RAW when Ryback, Jericho and Sheamus teamed up against The Shield. With Jericho off of TV for several weeks, it seems WWE may be going in a differ...
