Shooters Radio: WWE WrestleMania 29 deep dive, Bobby Lashley becomes WWE Champion

As I write this, I’ve only ever been to WrestleMania one time. That time was April 7, 2013, as WWE invaded MetLife Stadium for the first time, and wouldn’t be the last time. But on this night, The Rock defended the WWE Championship against John Cena in what was supposed to be a year-long story of Cena achieving redemption.

It was a good story on paper. The way WWE booked it from the end of WrestleMania 28 through this year was not very good. At all. But that didn’t matter – I was at WrestleMania, baby!

The card:

  • Six-Man Tag: The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins) vs. Big Show, Randy Orton and Sheamus
  • Mark Henry vs. Ryback
  • WWE Tag Team Championship: Team Hell No (Daniel Bryan and Kane) (c) vs. Big E Langston and Dolph Ziggler (w/ AJ Lee)
  • Fandango vs. Chris Jericho
  • World Heavyweight Championship: Alberto Del Rio (c) (w/ Ricardo Rodriguez) vs. Jack Swagger (w/ Zeb Colter)
  • The Undertaker vs. CM Punk (w/ Paul Heyman)
  • No Holds Barred: Triple H (with Shawn Michaels) vs. Brock Lesnar (w/ Paul Heyman)
  • WWE Championship: The Rock (c) vs. John Cena

We also touch on Bobby Lashley winning the WWE Championship, Joey Ryan’s wrestling show getting canceled, Randy Orton continuing to have Twitter beef with others, NXT moving to Tuesdays, and more.

That and more on this week’s episode!
