With the title reign Punk has had, WWE could really launch someone into main event big style by having them take it. Ziggler would be the perfect choice for me. He's been hovering at top level for a while, if he were to beat Punk at Mania it would really propel him.

Unfortunately I can see Rock beating Punk for the title, and Cena winning the rumble setting up the big re-match and Mania with Cena winning and them being 1 - 1.

If the WWE are smart they will have this going on right through to WM simply because CM Punk could become the new go to heel just as HHH was back in the day.
If they bin this feud off to try and make Rock-Cena II then they are truly clueless as Cena doesn't need it infact if they do that they will actually hurt their product IMHO.


I'd love to see Punk v Rock at Mania, but at the same time I think Rock & Cena have unfinished business, Rock still needs to pass the torch, and this time the belt as well. Punk & The Rock have great chemistry, but I think The Rock is Cena's foe. But I guess we'll see how it shapes up in the next few months

I think next year we'll see Punk face Austin instead, that can be his "Once in a lifetime" moment to make up for Cena getting The Rock.

Also I hope Lesnar stays on for his guest appearances and whatnot. Really want to see him feud with Sheamus, think those two could work a great match.

TNA are dropping their main PPV's down to 4 - Genesis, Lockdown, Slammiversary, and Bound For Glory. To help fill the place of the dropped PPV's are One Night Only specials that will each be 3 hours long.

It seems that they've wanted to drop the number of main PPV's for a while but had contract obligations with PPV providers that needed to expire.

The One Night Only specials will be;

- TNA X-Travaganza, featuring the stars of the X-Division (airing in April, taping 1/13).

- TNA Joker's Wild Tag Team Special, featuring enemies teaming and a Battle Royal final (airing in May, taping 1/13)

- TNA Hardcore Justice 2 - ECW reunion style "hardcore" show featuring hardcore stipulation matches bringing in ECW talents.

- TNA "10 Reunion" - Stars from the early days of TNA battling inside a Six-Sided ring.

- TNA Knockouts Knockdown - One night Knockout tournament with the first round being all stipulation matches and the final four in a "test of their stamina" to see who the final victor is.

- TNA International Incident - One night tournament featuring talent from " United States, India, Mexico, Ireland, Canada, Germany,
Japan & the UK" with the winner earning a TNA title shot.

- TNA X-Division World Cup Tournament - four teams of X-Division wrestlers in a one night tournament featuring singles, tag, six man and eight man tag bouts.

- TNA World Cup of Wrestling - Four teams, each captained by a TNA wrestler featuring a Heavyweight wrestler, a tag team and an X-Division wrestler battling in singles, tag and stipulation bouts. The finale will be a "two ring, triple chance Battle Royal."

I'm not sure. A lot of the talk is that Rock will beat Punk for the title then face off against Cena at WM. But I think Punk might just hold on to it because although Rock is scheduled for all the shows up to RR, there's no talk of him after it

Think he's scheduled to be at one or two in Feb then he'll be around leading up to Mania.

I really don't want to see Rock win it but I just can't see him losing.

I think he's scheduled to take part in the elimination chamber too. He's on the poster at least

Enjoyed Raw's 20th anniversary show.

No Austin or HBK, which given that the show was in Texas seems a bit strange but both were at a Hunting Expo in Vegas. Slightly poor planning on WWE's part really. They knew the show was coming up but didn't try making sure that 2 of WWE's biggest stars of Raw were going to be available.
