    First of all, wow. WTF? Is this real? At first I thought it was just a joke or something, but then wwe.com confirms the match and I'm thinking '"what the hell?" Lol. That's crazy. First time it's happened in the history of the WWE, where a WM match is literally set a year beforehand. How the fuck are they going to manage to develop this match for the next 12 months? What's Cena going to do? Who's he going to feud with next? Because I honestly highly doubt The Rock will be on Raw virtually constantly for the next year. I think Rock will disappear for a couple months and make some appearances on Raw or SD here or there later on down the road, but I'm wondering what'll happen with Cena.

    Above average show overall. Some good matches and less bullshit. I think Miz and Stone Cold might have a little feud going on here. I can see that happening. Don't know if Austin is actually going to be returning similarly like The Rock though.

    Sin Cara also debuted. Guy looks like a beast, can't wait to see him some more next week. Kind of surprised he'll be battling for a championship that fast though.

    First of all...I share your sentiment with the whole Rock vs. Cena thing. I can't believe that they booked a match a year in advance, but I'm fucking pumped for it. It could quite literally be the biggest match in the history of WrestleMania. And if it doesn't end up being the biggest match in the history of the event, well, it's damn sure going to be the most hyped. I legit can't wait to see WM next year, and I'm honestly thinking of getting tickets for it and flying to Miami for WM.

    Aside from that, I thought the show was good. The Miz and Austin bit was good, and I'd love to see Austin have a match against him. I dug that he got to deliver a Stunner again last night on A-Ri.

    The Triple H promo was solid to start the show, and I'll be damned if we don't see him and 'Taker go at it again next year. With how everything happened last night and the things that were said, I think they all but set up that match for WM28 as well. Obviously only time will tell, but I'd be damned if that match doesn't happen.

    Speaking of Sin Cara, he looked like the man last night. I was SUPER pumped when he debuted, really. Dude looks like he's gonna bring a whole new level of excitement to WWE, too. Just how he made his entrance - leaping over the top rope to get inside the ring and then taking out Sheamus - that's how you make an impact. I think WWE is going to give him the kind of quick push we've seen given to ADR, Daniel Bryan, and Barrett over the last year. The dude certainly has the talent to make the immediate impact too.

    Oh yea...also, while it's more of a backburner note because of the debut of Sin Cara and the Rock vs. Cena match being booked, I'm about 99.9% sure we'll be seeing a Michael Cole vs. Jerry Lawler rematch. While the match was pretty awful at WM on Sunday, I wouldn't mind seeing Jerry get a second swing at him and just absolutely pummeling him.

    Overall, it was a good show. The debut of Sin Cara was great, couple that with booking the main event for WM28 between two of the biggest superstars of the last 10 years, and the show was good. I can't wait to see what next week brings, and I'm really anxious if The Rock will be back in a more full-time role for the next year. One can only hope.

    I have to say I was initially disapointed with the Rock vs Cena match being set 1 freaken year before hand.

    I honestly was hoping that we were going to see a feud between to 2 and then we would receive the match at the next payperview.

    Tonight's show was a good one however since Austin came out and was so entertaining.

    I just loved how he keeps on humiliating Cole lol.

    I understand your disappointment, but honestly, can they have a match anywhere else? They're two of the biggest superstars in the last decade, and to waste what will arguably the biggest match in the last decade at a regular PPV like MiTB or Extreme Rules would be bad booking on their end. This also allows them to milk this rivalry for all it's worth and will probably help draw ratings over the next year so people can see what will happen between them.

    And I feel like Austin needs to come out and humiliate Cole weekly. Although Matt Fowler over at IGN (who writes a great and hilarious weekly blog about wrestling over there) made a valid point about that whole situation. Cole is so far heel now, that despite getting humiliated, he got all proud about getting bathed in beer and somehow managed to turn it in to a positive thing about getting initiated or something like that. Seriously...the dude just can't take getting humiliated...at all. He's so far heel right now, it's not even funny. I really hope he and King have another match where both of their careers as analysts are on the line and Cole gets beat. That'd be glorious. And I'm sure entirely wishful thinking on my end.

    Just saw Sin Cara again on SD. Holy crap this guy is amazing. Easily my new favorite in-ring performer at the moment.

    Yup, I can't wait to see him in an actual match. From what I've seen of him, he's going to be absolutely incredible.
