WWE WrestleMania 28 match card updated after Feb. 20 episode of Raw

It's rare for WWE but there will be no pay-per-view in the month of March. Indeed, WrestleMania 28 will get a six-week build from the Elimination Chamber show. "The Grand Daddy of them All" is scheduled for April 1, 2012, in Miami, Florida.

Raw last night saw a couple matches go official and the card is starting to take shape. Here's how it looks at present time.

-- The Rock vs. John Cena

This is the big one, folks. They've been building this match for over a year now and while it's been flat at times, Cena's promo from Raw last night really got the ball rolling. Sure, he's still harping on the same tired talking points but he delivered his words with such emotion and passion, it didn't matter. Rock answers back next week and I'm sure I can speak for us all when I say we can't wait.

-- Undertaker vs. Triple H (Hell in a Cell)

Triple H accepted the challenge last night on Raw but did so under the condition that they do it in a Hell in a Cell match. I'm not sure why this wasn't something anyone thought of beforehand but it adds just the right wrinkle to get us to care about it again. Sure, they're both old and mostly beaten down but on the big stage, they bring it. Expect greatness because that's probably what we're going to get.

-- CM Punk vs. Chris Jericho (WWE championship)

Absolutely hated the way they booked this match. Having Jericho win a lame battle royal on Raw was a cheap and easy way to make it happen. It's also left a lot to be desired as far as build goes. We're talking about two guys with some of the best mic work of all time and here they are bickering like school children about who actually is the best in the world. Let's hope it gets better sooner rather than later.

-- Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus (World heavyweight championship)

They've got a lot of work to do to make us care about this match. More importantly, though, what exactly are they going to do with these two? Do they have Bryan retain to continue his run as the weasel heel champion? Or do they put the title on Sheamus to justify the monster push they gave him over the past eight months? I tend to think it's the latter but would far prefer the former. Of course, there's always the possibility Randy Orton finds his way into the match and changes everything.

That's how the card looks right now, Cagesiders. Or at least that's what they've made official. Biggest WrestleMania of all time like they want us to think?
