Rock/Cena segment was actually pretty good. They're REALLY teasing a Cena heel turn but I doubt it will happen, unless he loses and just goes psycho heel-mode.


Cena won't lose. IF they actually have the stones to finally turn him heel, Cena will cheat to win. Cena was asked by Booker T why he's going to beat Rock and Cena responded "Because I have to. That's it. Because I have too." This should sound familar as Stone Cold said the exact same thing and turned heel at WM 17 vs. The Rock.

Cena also said "Whether he wins or loses that match, it's safe to say it will change the fact of WWE forever."

If he does turn at WM, i'll be in utter shocker and disbelief as much as everyone else. I want it too happen. It needs to happen.

Cena will have years of frustration pent up from the fans booing and disrespecting him, that he would have lots of material to use in promos to lash out at them. Cena in psycho heel mode would be very interesting and refreshing to see.

Of course the question is who would take take over as the #1 face? CM Punk is the only one that can do that and he's taking time off after WM to rest some injuries. Ryback in the short-term could be the #1 face until Punk returns.

There's been so many opporunities and chances they could have turned Cena heel, but didn't. If there ever is a time to do it, now is the time on the grandest stage of all. It would go down as the #2 biggest heel turn of all-time right next to the #1 biggest heel turn of all time Hogan joining nWo.

I expect Cena to win but not turn heel.

Latest on Orton turning heel at WM

As noted earlier today here on the website, there is talk of turning Randy Orton heel and that may happen at WrestleMania. The idea would be that they'd build up Sheamus and Orton "trusting" The Big Show only to have Orton turn during the match and hit an RKO on either Sheamus or The Big Show. It all depends on who they want him to feud with following WrestleMania.

Rumored Divas Match at WM

The latest rumor backstage concerning a Diva match at WrestleMania 29 is that AJ Lee vs. Kaitlyn has been discussed for the Divas Title and will likely take place at the big event in two weeks WWE has reportedly dropped the idea of turning Layla heel and the idea of doing an eight-Divas match at the big event.



I can see a scenario where Ziggler, Langston and AJ win all the titles at WM.

Ziggler/Langston win Tag Titles

AJ wins Divas Title

Ziggler finally cashes in and wins World Heavyweight Championship.

Probably won't happen but i'm sure they win some gold for sure.

X-Pac got injured in a retirement match against Jerry Lynn while performing Bronco Buster. He's undergone surgery.

Alicia Webb (Ryan Shamrock) speaks on the injury

Alicia Webb provided an update on Sean Waltman's recovery noting that this isn't the first time he has suffered this type of injury. We dont know if there is a medical term for itbut he did a bronco buster last night that literally ripped his ass apart! :-/ Lost a lot of blood! Had surgery this morning and is on the road to recovery! Believe it or not..this has happened to him once before!

Ric Flair was scheduled to be apart of the Legends Panel Q&A Segment with Cena and Rock, but had a Health Scare and was sent home for treatment.

As noted before, Ric Flair was sent home from RAW in Philadelphia yesterday after doctors took a look at the same leg that he had a blood clot in back in January. That incident prevented Flair from wrestling for All Japan. Flair was sent home to Charlotte for further treatment but spent last night watching the NBA on TV. Flair was downplaying the situation to people but is going to a hospital in Charlotte this morning for medical tests. One person who saw Flair over the weekend noted that he was not looking good and was limping badly. WWE officials have been concerned with Flair's health recently, even before yesterday's RAW. Flair was scheduled to be involved in the Legends segment with John Cena and The Rock at the end of last night's RAW, in the role Booker T had.

I like the visual of a wrestler holding up multiple titles. Would love to see Ziggler hold up both the WWE Tag Team Championship and World Heavyweight Championship.

Starting to realize these wrestling sites are crap and take advantage of people that don't pay attention.

Pretty obvious AJ and Kaitlyn is a "rumoured" match after AJ attacked Kaitlyn and then defeated her in a match.

Pretty obvious Booker T might turn heel after WrestleMania based on his interaction with Theodore Long in a backstage segment last Friday on SmackDown. He said Long worked "for him" and Long said he worked "with him."

I say #2 goes to Austin turning at WM17. Cena is the megaface, but his turn won't have as big an effect as Austin's (signifying the end of the Attitude Era).

Hogan turning heel and joining nWo is the #1 heel turn of all time. There won't be another heel turn that matches it. If Cena ever does turn, it would be #2.

putting aj in at mania just makes sense. she'll be so over, despite being a heel. i think that could be a very good match if it goes through. would prefer a divas title match than a random battle royal or whatever. just have those 2 go go out there and put on a show. we all know aj can go. kaitlyn is too boring for me

i don't see how having booker T being a heel makes any sense, unless he starts screwing the faces over or something

WWE reached out to Former Divas for WM and why their not returning.

The plan was to bring in a series of former Divas - Maria Kanellis, Kelly Kelly, Maryse and the Bellas to face a team of current Divas headed by Divas champion Kaitlyn. WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus would be included as well, managing one of the teams. The idea behind the tag was that the current crop of Divas were not over enough in management's eyes and that the return of some of the more recently departed Divas could help that on the Wrestlemania stage, plus provide an attraction that would be unique. Negotiations with the former Divas quickly broke down. WWE sources indicated that the former Divas stuck together in discussions, specifically requesting the usage of their WWE names and copyrights for outside projects, which the company wasn't going to grant. That led to Kelly and Maryse turning down the offer. As it turned out, the Bellas were already planning for a return as early as late 2012, so in the end, they signed new full-time deals. There has also been talk that the former Divas had pushed for someone else in the spot instead of Kanellis due to unhappiness with comments Kanellis had made after leaving WWE, although what those comments might have been and who else may have been considered for the role, PWInsider.com cannot 100% confirm. With the former Divas driving a "hard bargain" so to speak, WWE opted not to move forward with the plan. As of last week, there was no set plan for the Divas on the flagship PPV beyond possibly adding an unannounced tag.

Watched RAW for the first time in awhile (not all of it, but the ending and bits and pieces here and there)

The Cena/Rock thing was really good.

Although after this what will they do. It seems like one of the two (whoever loses) will take a bit of a hit, since so much is on the line it feels like whoever loses won't have that status they both currently hold.

If its Rock who loses, who knows how much longer he sticks around, if its Cena. I wonder if his face imagine will suffer.

If Cena turns heel at Wrestlemania I'll be shocked. I really don't think WWE has someone who can fill in as the top face of the company right now, like when Austin turned heel at Wrestlemania 17 (The Rock). Orton isn't top face material and is better suited as a heel, Ryback is still green as goose crap, Jericho flip flops a couple times a year between heel and face, and CM Punk just turned during the summer, nevermind the rumor that he's taking some time off to heal after WM. But then again, a superface like Cena isn't made in a week so they'll have to give someone the ball eventually.

A observation I made while watching Raw. Anyone else think that if Fandango's top rope leg drop was done by Hulk Hogan, Chris Jericho would be in a coma right now?

Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".

But then again, a superface like Cena isn't made in a week so they'll have to give someone the ball eventually.


Orton is turning heel soon, possibly at WM during the Six Man Tag. If that occurs, it could go a couple of ways. Orton/Sheamus/Big Show have the upperhand on The Shield and about hit their finishers on each member of the Shield, when Orton looks like he's going to hit RKO, instead he hits it on Sheamus. Orton could also just walk out during the match. I'll go with Orton attacking one of his teammates, Sheamus. This leads to a Sheamus/Orton feud.

Ryback could be the top face in the short-term. Punk is the best option to take over from Cena as the top face. If he loses to Undertaker, he earns respect during the match from Taker and they shake hands after the match is over. He could also blame Heyman for picking Lesnar over him, leading to a feud with Lesnar in the near future.

Now I know this is almost no chance it will happen but if Cena turns heel at WM and Orton turned heel as well, Two Man Power Trip 2.0 with Cena and Orton. I don't want to see Orton associated with The Shield. We've seen that already.

If Cena turns heel at WM and none of the rest happens, we'd be ecastic with that.

Another option for Cena's spot is Ziggler. He needs to go on his own instead of being paired with people. He was with Vicki for the longest time and now he needs to split away from AJ and Langston, go on his own. Have him finally cash in and become champion.

If Jericho stays, which we know he isn't going to, he could easily take the spot as the top face of the company. Other options are Christian or Daniels, but we all know Vince has no fate in both those guys.

Jericho will be gone after he puts over Fandango at WM. He rarely wins anymore. Thing with him if he were to be the top face, is that he's never a threat (as a face) in the World Title Picture. He's always involved in the mid-card like he presently is feuding with Fandango.

Christian I would suspect will return after WM and think he starts a feud with Antonio Cesaro for the U.S. Title. Given his age and that Vince has never seen him as a top star and only sees him as a very reliable worker. Such a waste for a guy who is clearly one of the top workers in WWE.

As for Daniel Bryan. He's been turned into a comedy act. Him and Kane need to split and hopefully that occurs at WM. I really hope that don't do something foolish like reunite AJ with Bryan.

That not really Jericho's fault, it's the creative team and how he is being booked. Jericho is easily one of the most popular figures in wrestling, whether he's a face or heel.

Fandango/Jericho could be a dark horse for match of the night , behind taker/punk. I'm just a bit disappointed by the build for mania this year. Very rushed and hard to build any momentum with part time performers.

Outside of A-1, all members of Team Canada were pretty awesome IMO. Roode obviously being the break-out star but back in the day Petey was the poster boy for Team Canada. Will be interesting to see what happens if they do have some sort of interaction on TV. I don't know what it is about EY, but he's so entertaining and charismatic.
