It's official: Team Hell No will defend the tag team championships against Dolph Ziggler and Big E. Langston at WrestleMania 29 on April 7 in New Jersey, as made official on tonight's (March 18, 2013) episode of Monday Night Raw.
Sometimes the rumors you see floating around the pro wrestling world -- and you can check out the daily rumors right here on Cageside Seats, with today's up right here -- turn out to be incredibly true, as has been the case with the general booking direction for the WrestleMania 29 match card scheduled for Sun., April 7, 2013, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
First, Ryback vs. Mark Henry was booked in a heavy duty HOSS FIGHT, then Big Show stepped in to team with Randy Orton and Sheamus against The Shield, and now Team Hell No has officially been booked to defend their tag team championships against Dolph Ziggler and Big E. Langston.
And all of this went down on tonight's news-heavy episode of Monday Night Raw in Pittsburgh.
Here's a bit from the WWE.com preview announcing the match:
Hell, as Jean-Paul Sartre once said, is other people. If anyone knows the truth of this statement, it is Kane and Daniel Bryan. The warring WWE Tag Team Champions have been just as likely to beat up each other as any potential challengers to their twin titles during their bizarre, seven-month reign atop WWE's tandem division as Team Hell No. But at WrestleMania 29, the squabbling anger management alumni may yet realize the full scope of the famous French proverb when they put their precious championships on the line against Dolph Ziggler and Big E Langston.
And here's the updated WrestleMania 29 match card and line-up:
- The Rock vs. John Cena
- Undertaker vs. CM Punk
- Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H
- Alberto Del Rio vs. Jack Swagger
- Ryback vs. Mark Henry
- The Shield vs. Randy Orton, Sheamus, Big Show*
- Team Hell No vs. Dolph Ziggler & Big E. Langston
