WWE’s Superbowl of Wrestling
Wrestlemania 24, is the event considered the “superbowl of sports entertainment” and the biggest Pay Per View of the year for WWE. It will feature thousands of fans along with celebrities in attendance to watch as the WWE Superstars and WWE Divas put on a spectacle. Already confirmed to be there are the likes of Snoop Dogg, Raven Symone, Kim Kardashian, and R&B singer John Legend. While these celebrities will certainly bring extra star power to the event, it will be all about the competition in the ring. Three big matches will headline the 2008 Wrestlemania and are already full of rumors and speculation over who will win.
The World Heavyweight title has always been heavily contested and the belt currently is around the waist of WWE Superstar Edge. Edge from WWE’s Smackdown brand won the belt after using all sorts of tricks during a triple threat Pay Per View match against the Undertaker and Batista. Batista was the champ at the time, but Edge used a chair to knock out Undertake for a pin. Now heading into Royal Rumble 2020 live in Uk Wrestlemania 24, Undertaker has won an Elimination Chamber match of 6 men. His prize will be an attempt at Edge’s World Heavyweight title. The interesting facts here are that Undertaker is an impressive 15-0 at Wrestlemania, never losing a match, and that Edge has never been defeated by the Undertaker. Something’s got to give for this one with the title on the line.
On the WWE Raw side of things is the WWE title, currently held by superstar Randy Orton. Triple H won a brutal Elimination Chamber match against 5 other men to earn a shot at the WWE title. However, John Cena also won the 2008 Royal Rumble, giving him a shot at the WWE title. The obvious smart plan was to put John Cena, Triple H and Randy Orton into a Triple Threat match at Wrestlemania 24. One of these 3 men will take the glory of the WWE title on the grandest stage of them all.
Finally, there is a Wrestlemania 24 match which is considered a “David vs. Goliath” sort of contest. It features the returning wrestling star, the Big Show who is over 7 feet tall. His competition comes from outside the wrestling ranks, as boxer Floyd “Money” Mayweather enters the wrestling ring. The 39-0 boxer chose to throw some punches at Big Show during a previous WWE Pay Per View. During the altercation, Mayweather broke Big Show’s nose, leaving the huge superstar bloody and angry. On the following night, Big Show taunted Mayweather again after it seemed Show wanted to apologize. Big Show called out the boxer, who has now vowed to “break Big Show’s jaw”. Now Mayweather will play David to Big Show’s Goliath when they compete. The rumored payout for Mayweather taking the WWE match is $20 million. Many fans and sports analysts question if the money is worth being decimated by such a huge opponent.
