WrestleMania XXX rumors: WWE planning match card and line up

WWE is currently in the midst of planning its WrestleMania XXX match card and line-up and here are the rumors as they stand now.

We're still a couple weeks away from the Survivor Series pay-per-view (PPV) scheduled for Nov. 24, 2013, in Boston, Massachusetts, but that doesn't mean WWE isn't currently working hard to finalize plans for WrestleMania XXX next year in New Orleans.

Indeed, a preliminary match card is rumored to be filled out and Bryan Alvarez has the word in the latest edition of Figure Four Weekly (subscription required but recommended). Let's take a look, keeping in mind that these are very early rumors and it's all subject to change at a moment's notice and pending on each guy's situation come April:

- Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

No telling how they'll get there but these two feuded quite a bit during Lesnar's first run with WWE from 2002-2004, so there's plenty of history to draw from.

- Ryback vs. Goldberg

This seems obvious considering Goldberg has revealed he's open to a return, Ryback can't shake the Goldberg chants from audiences around the world, and now he's blatantly using Goldberg's finishers. Assuming this doesn't happen, Ryback vs. Big Show could be revisited and there is talk of that match happening no matter what, possibly at Elimination Chamber.

- Cody Rhodes vs. Goldust

Goldust was campaigning for this match years ago and considering how happy the powers that be have been with his work since returning, it looks like he's finally going to get his wish.

- Randy Orton vs. CM Punk

This is likely the WWE championship match and could very well close the show. Punk may not get here by winning the Royal Rumble, however, as that honor could go to the man challenging John Cena for the world heavyweight championship.

- Shawn Michaels vs. Daniel Bryan

More and more talk that Michaels will agree to come out of retirement for this match. He'll deny it no matter what, so this is really just a wait and see deal.

There is a plan in place for John Cena and Triple H but no word yet on exactly what that will be. With Sheamus scheduled to return around the Royal Rumble, the idea of his winning it and challenging Cena for the world title at 'Mania seems possible.

Again, all of these are rumors and it's all subject to change. But that's where things apparently stand right now.
