Backstage Note on The Rock Winning, Ziggler Headed Overseas, More

Posted by Matt Boone January 18, 2013 11 Comments

- WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair spoke to children at Chickamauga Elementary School in Georgia on Thursday.

– Right after Monday’s RAW, Dolph Ziggler will be flying to Australia to do promotional work for WWE.

– The Miz revealed on this week’s episode of WWE Main Event that he will be in the 30-man Royal Rumble match.

– We noted before that WWE officials had discussions about CM Punk retaining the WWE Title against The Rock at the Royal Rumble and then have Rock win it at Elimination Chamber. notes that since Rock swore to God on RAW that he would beat Punk at the Rumble, the idea of Punk retaining was likely nixed. It’s not a hard and fast rule but usually if a babyface guarantees or swears to God that he will win, he wins.

      Rock has never won title at Elimination Chamber as a matter of fact he never has been in Elimination Chamber so if they want him to win the belt then make it happen there.That would be the right thing to do.

      Its just a big insult n a smack in the face to say a main event is a one time once in a lifetime match n yet one yr later at the very next wrestlemania its the same DAMN match. This is why I don’t buy their ppvs. The really just shove whatever they want onto the fans. Sad part is everyone else keeps buying instead of demanding better.

    • Derp.

      That last sentence in the article seems a bit stupid consdering John Cena had promised and swore for an entire year leading up to Mania that he would beat The Rock, and he didn’t. And everybody knows Cena has been the top babyface in the company for how many years now? I’m not saying that either is better than the other, but that last sentence just seemed stupid.
