Toss Punk into the Rock-Cena match if 'taker isn't wrestling. The match b/w Rock and Cena isn't sacrosanct, and Punk is already part of it, supposing they don't plan for the next PPV match b/w Rock and Punk is a blowoff (which it most likely will be).


That's the obvious plan, yeah. When was the last headliner three-way at Mania? Was it at, uh, that Mania which was totally-headlined-by-Taker-vs.-Kane-seriously-just-trust-us-on-that? I know there have been other three ways in the past few years, but those weren't last match, right?

Regardless, if Taker really decides not to wrestle, it's a damn shame. Not because I want to see him, mind you, but because there could've been a totally different plan for booking Mania. As it stands, if they have to add Punk to the Rock/Cena match, the likely scenario is that he'll be nothing more than an afterthought. Publicity concerns aside, I would've let Punk walk to Mania as champion and then lose in the three-way. But, you know, I don't book this shit to maximize profit and public profile, so this is totally incompatible with Mania. Sigh.

His initial response is hilarious. Genuinely happy to see Jake sober and alive. Feel good story of the year.

I really hope they throw Punk into Cena/Rock for the triple threat match. For me personally, I would like to have someone in that match to root for. It feels like there is some unwritten rule where WM has to be headlined by a standard one-on-one match with zero special stipulations.

For the love of god I do not want Cena/Rock again.

I wonder how much Johnson is getting paid? I mean the guy has had a pretty successful film career, I see no reason for him to come back to wrestling unless he was offered enough money.

Plus, we know enough about the "real" Rock that watching him trying to be "The Rock" just seems kind of silly now. Part of being a wrestler is being the character, and he's been out of character for a while now.

eh. The CB4 one was clever in that it's pretty accurate satire of what WWE wants him to be. I didn't get the others, except for Daniel Bryan. On that; double eh.

For what it's worth, and because it's always much funnier once the joke is explained:

Go forth in peace.

Edit - Just read something about Steph dropping the "Levesque" name but in the same article they had office salaries for last year. Not surprised that Dunn makes more than HHH considering how long he has been there, but was surprised at how MUCH more.

*Vince McMahon, Chairman of the Board and CEO
* Kevin Dunn, Executive Vice President, Television Production
* George Barrios, Chief Financial Officer
* Michelle Wilson, Chief Marketing Officer
* Paul Levesque (Triple H), Executive Vice President, Talent

- Here is the list of straight salaries for 2012:
* Vince McMahon, $1.1 million
* Dunn, $800,000
* Barrios, $575,000
* Wilson, $575,000
* Levesque, $500,000


I do often wonder if their shows would be any better if they got a fresh producer, rather than having that ass-kissing buck-toothed geek (credit: Jim Cornette) in there.

I've never been too high on Kazarian. Always thought fans gave him too much hype just because of his half-ass spots. Since teaming with Daniels, I've been proven wrong. Genuinely enjoying the guy. Also helps that he cut his hillbilly hair.

though could there be something else there


funny if there is a hidden message in there...

cena/punk/rock


cena punks rock (allows punk to regain title at wm and turns heal)


with all of this cash being made on the WWE im shocked noone took over and made this come back to life

With Authority the pc card based game.... man i loved that game back in 2000 and 2001 and 2002 too bad that would not be taken over and come back out

Not sure about downloading the theme without the beginning but there are free programs out there that can edit audio files.
