Backstage Note on The Rock Winning, Ziggler Headed Overseas, More
– 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. F4Wonline.com 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.
