    Lesnar vs Rock again?! NO! Cena vs Rock II would be better.

    • Really?91

      Yeah, you’re pretty much alone on that one buddy.R

  • OhioMan

    I don’t feel The Rock and Brock Lesnar would work well together. I think The Rock should face CM Punk maybe at Wrestlemania for a “part 2”, or even John Cena again. If it means that John Cena isn’t going for the WWE title and not against CM Punk again. I’m all in for it. But thats just my opinion. As for Undertaker, if it’s Cena vs Rock again then Punk vs Taker sounds good to me. Or even Taker vs Brock. Again, my opinion.

  • Redneck Rockstar

    If wwe wants the most mainstream media coverage for its buck then it puts an A-LIST Hollywood superstar avs. the former ufc heavyweight champion. Keep in mind neither of them had the mainstream celeb status they do now when they met up 1st time around.

    • cappa37

      Yea. Agreed. The Rock won’t win the title at RR… it just doesn’t make sense. He won’t be on every Raw and he probably won’t even be at Elimination Chamber. Plus he’s going to be doing a lot of promotional stuff for a bunch of movies that come out in the first half of 2013. WWE needs this. Can you imagine if CM Punk was headlining WM?? I would bet a million dollars that it would do the least PPV buys in WM history.

      • Jacob Rael

        I wouldnt go that far and cm punk will never headline mania so its irrelevant

        • Peer Pressure

          Never say never bro.

          • Jacob Rael

            Its just the facts bro wwe would never trust punk to main event the biggest show of the year they have a very select circle of people that get that position as much as I like punk he is not one of those people

        • sam

          em betting wid u…if punk’s not headlining WM,em a btch!! if he is , den u r the biggest motherfucker of all time !!!

      • sam

        punk is headlining WM,.thats a lock…it doesnt matter what u think, ur opinion suxx like hell…buyrates will be impressive,em sure and punk’s atlast will leave evry icon behind dis time…so u just shut the fuck up homo and dont watch WM dis time…gotta better solution for u, fantasize rock/cena banging each other, lmao !!

        • Jacob Rael

          Learn how to spell

    • vadertime33

      what are you talking about?? the rck was huge mainstream guy at that point .. thats why he left .. so he could do all the movies he had signed up for

      • cappa37

        Depends on your definition of “huge.” He was doing a few movies but at that point he was more known as the “wrestler breaking into the movie industry” where as now, he’s the “movie star going back to his roots”

  • pwnez

    We probably won’t know for awhile since we’ve heard so many different scenarios so far. Rock vs Brock sounds better than Cena vs Rock though.

    • morrisonfanone

      As long as they don’t do HHH/Undertaker again, I’m okay with anything.

      • sam

        punk vs taker…1oo %

  • Randy James Crawford

    I’d have John Cena win against Dolph Ziggler only if WWE lets him cash it on Undertaker at Wrestlemania after Undertaker beat CM Punk meaning Undertaker’s streak and career would end.

    • Hobo With A Shot Gun

      Feed you to Ryback

    • Bro88

      Dumbest idea ever

  • Chris

    ya know what , FINALLY one of the writers is truely thinking , i like that , it needs to be kinda violent tho or it wont work

  • Peer Pressure

    Lesnar vs Rock sounds like a good idea. I might order WM next year.

    • morrisonfanone

      We’ll order it anyway. It’s the only one we ever buy and it’s tradition in my house.

  • ThurgoodSinbad

    Lesnar vs Rock, Cena vs Taker, Punk vs Austin, Jericho vs Ziggler

    • ewd

      i was thinking more
      : Wrestlemania 29

      – Rock(c) vs Cena
      – Lesnar vs Taker
      – Punk vs Miz

      – Ryback vs Big show ( c)
      – Kofi(c) vs Antonio Cesaro (c) Title unification match
      – Rey vs Sin Cara
      – Daniel bryan vs kane
      – Aj lee vs eve (c)
      other guys like dolph, wade, HHH, Truth, orton, Rhodes, Sandow etc could be pitched in a mitb match or whatever

      • cappa37

        We are forgetting about HHH, we all know he’s going to have a match… most likely with Brock (which totally sucks cause we know HHH is going over).

        • Guest

          HHH in a MITB match with wade, ziggler, rhodes etc? You kiddin now?

      • Krauser

        MITB has its own PPV, it will never be at WM again!

        • SavageBomber

          It would have been last year if Wade didn’t get injured… “Never say never”

      • Steve James

        I like the Punk/Miz idea. They can go on first,then we can get o with the rest of WM with Ryback, Rock, Brock, ‘Taker, Orton, HHH. And maybe let the Ziggster cash in that goddamn briefcase.

      • umeer ahmad

        HHH in a MITB match against Rhodes, Sandow, Wade etc. ? You kiddin now?

      • PornHub

        Everyone should give up on stone cold coming to wrestlemania. I see it like this: Rock vs Cena WWE Title
        Lesnar vs HHH
        Punk vs Taker
        Dolph Ziggler vs Sheamus vs Orton
        The Shield Vs Hell No and Ryback
        Wade Barett vs The Miz

      • sam

        100% wrong predictions….pathetic

    • Doug Funnie

      Austin won’t be back for WM 29. Just not happening.

  • zed

    Brock vs. Rock is much better. They hyped up Cena vs Rock last year for the whole year as “once in a lifetime”. Please make it once in a lifetime indeed.

  • the4thwiseman

    Lesnar vs Punk Taker vs Rock…..

    Daniel Bryan Randy Orton John Cena the new NWO vs The Sheild…..

    • Name Goes Here

      John Cena in the NWO? Did you just write that?

  • Rock Solid

    This is just WWE jerking the fans around to throw them off. They’ve been doing this for a long time now. They already know what they’re going to do. It’s going to be Rock/Cena 2 at WM. HHH and Lesnar 2, (Unfortunately) and CM Punk vs. Taker probably for the WWE title. And Punk is going to shock the world….. in a DESPERATE way to gain big ratings… CM Punk is going to defeat the Undertaker and retain the WWE title!

    • morrisonfanone

      I don’t want to see HHH/Lesnar 2 but I really don’t want to see HHH/UT 3. Or 4. Wherever they’re at now.

  • Mr. Honesty

    That actually sounds like a good match. I’m all for it.

  • Rock Solid

    HHH is going to defeat Lesnar and gain retribution, and we’ll likely never see Lesnar in a WWE ring again for a long ass time. The SHIELD is going to interfere in the Rock/Cena II match, and in a twist of events they are going to help John Cena win the match against the Rock. All these things are most likely happening because Vince is desperate to increase viewership. And he can’t stand the fact that he’s losing fans as months go by.

  • Bushwald Sexyface

    Id rather see Lesnar/Rock than Cena/Rock 2. But I would rather see Punk/Rock 2 than Lesnar/Rock.

  • larlar

    people are gonna boo the rock/lesnar match coz they know that after the match, they wont be seeing the two of them again for a long time. kinda like lesnar/goldberg match.

  • Chris

    bring back goldberg and make it a triple threat (w/ brock and rock), with rock coming out victorious. Sorry cena.

  • triple h

    Triple H vs Lesnar I want that

  • Daniel Fundora

    Make this happen again for one last time with Brock Lesnar vs The rock rematch from summer slam 2002 as long they don’t put with rock vs cena match!

  • AngelFlow

    I want to see a good feud between Punk and The Rock going from Royal Rumble to WrestleMania. This sound good if they decide to not give us that feud and we wouldn’t have to see Cena vs Rock 2. And if they go with Rock/Brock, I want to see Punk vs Undertaker.

  • Steve James

    Would love Rock/Brock II. But would also love another Brock/Undertaker match, if for nothing more than their history. And as much as I like the Rock, I hope he retains the title at WM, just long enough for Ziggler to cash in hs MITB and become Champion. Beating the ROCK, at WRESTLEMANIA, for the TITLE, would be one hell of a monster push.

    • morrisonfanone

      Couldn’t agree with the last part more.

    • Rashad Jackson

      but remember ziggler is a smackdown wrestler and he has the smackdown money in the bank case…so that wouldnt really work if rock wins the raw title..

      • Steve James

        Yeah, true, but in WWE, shit changes at a moments notice almost all the time. I could see Ziigs getting Vickie to ok a run-in ater a WM match, finding some loophole or another as to why Ziggler has legal right, or some such bullshit… WWE always finds a way.


    I don’t want to see Brock Lesnar in any more matches in WWE. He doesn’t wrestle as good as he did in 2002 or 2003. His brawl technique is boring and just plain awful to watch. Do people actually think that Rock/Brock at WM will look or be as decent as the match they had in 2002? Look at the match he had with Triple H this past summer. One of the worst matches I’ve ever seen in my life, and I know I’m not the only one that thinks so. The match he had with John Cena earlier in the year was not that great either. I don’t want to see Lesnar at WM or any more WWE events. I don’t care for MMA, and I don’t care to see that style in WWE, and it seems as if that’s the only thing Lesnar can bring to the table now. And the people that want to see Brock Lesnar and his boring brawl style against Undertaker who is known for putting on classics at WM have VERY bad taste. Why anyone would want to subject Undertaker to wrestling such an abysmal match on the grandest stage of them all in WWE is questionable! Nostalgia is like a bad drug, it gets people so high that they become delusional to the point of lunacy. Same people that wanted to see Mick Foley in the ring again at TLC. Delusional lunacy. Only someone that is high on nostalgia would even want that. Talk about poor quality, you would have had it in a nutshell had Mick Foley stepped in the ring again! I don’t smoke “nostalgia”. I look to the future.

  • aabbccdd

    what are you people talking about? what about all say the rock,bla bla bla ..fuck that dude,he ain’t worthy competing at WM.other talents are sitting in a line to get the chance of wrestling in the main event at WM.where the fuck is this dude?making movies,so?tweeting,so?interviews,so?

    • morrisonfanone

      And what has Ryback done to get all these title shots?

  • morrisonfanone

    That could be kind of interesting. That would be one of the most interesting things they’ve ever done.

  • Doug Funnie

    Rock vs. Lesnar II. The rematch 11 years in the making. They’ve never had a follow up to their Summerslam 2002 title match.. I think that’s a winner there.

  • indywrestler22

    I’ve been saying that for a while..make it happen WWE!!

  • umeer ahmad

    Rock vs Brock – No DQ
    HHH vs Punk – Falls count anywhere
    Ryback vs Show WHC championship
    Taker vs Cena Ambulance match
    Ziggler vs Miz Int.cont. championship

    The Shield vs Orton, Kane, D.Bryan
    Sin Cara vs Rey Mysterio
    Primetime Players vs Rhodes Scholars Tag team championship

    Damn, would be GREAT if this happens!

  • Rashad Jackson

    isnt brock lesnar the reason why the rock left wwe when he got beat at summerslam??
    i def. agree with this…i would rather see brock vs. rock!!…not rock vs. cena!..what happen to once in a life time…that match SHOULD NOT HAPPEN AGAIN! it will be dumb…whats the point of saying 1 time only to only leaf to them fighting again…
    brock vs. rock makes more sense and i hope that happens
    since brock and punk are both hayman guys..
