As WrestleMania 29 creeps closer, predictions start to spark up for what matches we are going to see. Right now, the only thing you can take to the bank is John Cena being in the WWE Championship match.
As for the World Heavyweight Championship match, Alberto Del Rio will defend the title against Big Show at the Elimination Chamber event this Sunday. Meanwhile, the winner of the Elimination Chamber match will face the World Heavyweight Champion at WrestleMania.
The only competitor I truly see having no shot of winning this match is Swagger. He has returned with a somewhat different look and because of the addition of Zeb Coulter, a different angle. While it is interesting, Swagger needs more time to be a credible World Heavyweight Championship contender.
Henry is coming back and continuing the strongest run of his long career. While he is going to dominate in this match and probably eliminate multiple superstars, I don't see him winning the match. Henry needs a little more time before he can be in a title match.
Kane and Bryan are probably going to interfere with each other and cost themselves the match. This will continue their strange partnership and feud. Until Team Hell No is officially broken up, I don't see either of them competing for the World Heavyweight Championship.
Orton has been a favorite for a long time, especially with the hopes of a necessary heel turn. A win at the Elimination Chamber, heel turn and World Heavyweight Championship match at WrestleMania could help pull Orton out of the mid-card limbo he has been in.
While I would love to see an Orton heel turn, the person I'm picking to win the Elimination Chamber is Jericho. Jericho returned at the Royal Rumble as a face. He has put on consistently exciting matches on Raw and could be in the middle of one of the best runs he has had with the company.
With Jericho winning the Elimination Chamber, we have the potential for a Fatal Four-Way match for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania. Let me explain further...
Someone that has to be factored into the equation is Dolph Ziggler. He still has the Money in the Bank briefcase. Since he is not booked in a match at the Elimination Chamber, there is a good chance he will cash it in after the Del Rio, Big Show match.
So here is the scenario that could lead to four superstars in the World Heavyweight match. Jericho wins the Elimination Chamber match, which gives him the title shot at WrestleMania.
Big Show beats Del Rio and becomes the new World Heavyweight Champion. Ziggler then cashes in the MITB briefcase immediately after that match. With the help of Big E Langston, Ziggler takes out Big Show and becomes the new World Heavyweight Champion.
Now Del Rio and Big Show feel they are both entitled to a rematch. Meanwhile Jericho has the right to a compete for the World Heavyweight Championship as well. And there you have your Fatal Four-Way match.
One difficult thing about WrestleMania is trying to squeeze as many superstars into the event as possible. A Fatal Four-Way match allows four of the top superstars in the company to be involved in one of the top matches.
