    Coming off of last week's Raw, we finally got on the Road to WrestleMania. The top matches seem to be set:
    -HHH (c) vs Randy Orton
    -Shawn Michaels vs The Undertaker
    -Edge (c) vs John Cena
    -Jeff Hardy vs Matt Hardy

    It's funny that the two non-title matches are much more intriguing than the title matches. I think that HHH vs Cena and Edge vs Orton (ok, those probablywouldn't have happened) or HHH vs Edge and Cena vs Orton would have been more compelling matches. Edge vs Cena has no interest for me. HHH vs Orton is alittle more interesting, but as was laid out in last week's post, these two have wrestled many times over the years (or should I say HHH has buried Ortonover the years). They brought the twist into the match that they have finally acknowledged HHH's marriage to Steph. I don't know how much fans willcare about this since everyone already knew it. Sure, the storyline sets up that HHH is out for revenge from Orton's attacks on Steph, Shane, and Vince. But since when does HHH stick up for the McMahon's? If my longterm memory serves me correctly (and I know the WWE hopes it doesn't), HHH completelydestroyed Vince, Shane, and The Spirit Squad just two years ago. So why would he help them now? Well, the WWE doesn't need to give us a reason. He justwill. HHH looked like he was going to have a stroke last week when he came to the rescue of Steph. Seriously, I hate you and all, but lay off the roidsbefore you drop dead in the center of the ring.

    Tonight we have Shawn Michaels vs JBL for the right to face The Undertaker at WrestleMania. However, the Russian monster Kozlov has been thrown into the mix. I really don't know who this guy has naked pictures of, but it is absolutely ridiculous that this guy is still involved in major WWE programs. He wasatrocious in the Smackdown Elimination Chamber (and every other match he's been in). But then he goes an gets a clean win over The Undertaker. I justdon't get it. So help me God if they turn HBK vs The Undertaker into a three way involving Kozlov. Kozlov is supposedly at the arena tonight, so I cansee him jumping HBK after the match.

    CM Punk vs The Miz vs Morrison for a spot in the Money in the Bank match at WrestleMania. How the hell are you going to put three of your most athleticwrestlers in the same match and only let one advance. Maybe The Big Show and Kane will end up in the MITB match afterall. Ugh.

    Hopefully they get something in line for Priceless. Since it seems that it will be Miz/Morrison vs The Colons to unify the tag titles, I don't know whatrole Priceless plays other than as Orton's entourage.

    After getting robbed last year, we'll see if Mickey Rourke has a change of heart about appearing in the WWE. His last statement was that he would not beattending WrestleMania in any form. However, the WWE is still pressing hard for him to be there. Of course, the WWE wants Jericho vs Rourke, which I'msure Jericho will cut a promo about tonight bashing Rourke's performance and not winning the Oscar, but I would say it is most likely that Rourke is in thecorner of whatever legend Jericho ends up facing.

    Before I do News & Notes...here's another great article by Paul Heyman regarding WWE's heels, in particular Edge and Randy Orton.

    WWE has a chance to do something special at Wrestlemania, but I doubt it'll happen. [​IMG]

    Question: Why even sign Christian?

    He should've just stayed in TNA, Or at least made sure he was going to be a priority before signing to the E.
