Backstage News on Taker & CM Punk, The Rock Thanks Fellow WWE Stars

- WWE Champion The Rock tweeted the following to his fellow Superstars on Saturday:

“Thank U @WWE Superstars for the awesome welcoming me back & getting the “big picture” plan. You’re true locker room leaders! #RoadToMania”

- F4Wonline.com reports that as of Saturday, there is still no word on whether or not The Undertaker will work WrestleMania 29. It’s said that Taker keeps changing his mind.

There is also no replacement match in the works for CM Punk yet. Besides all the talk, we should know something more solid on the weekend of WWE’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view.

  • Guest

    i don’t belive the rumors that taker isn’t gonna work wm ..i think hhh isn’t gonna say something which isn’t confirmed ..taker will wrestle ..i’ll bet my bottom dollar on it

  • jcice13

    so let’s see if I got this right…the man that has held the title for the longest reign in the modern era? multiple writers? and they saying that if taker can’t go they have NOTHING ready for Punk as a plan B??? nice job

    • The Truth

      Remember Punk said creative had nothing for him even though he was the WHC? This was like in 08 09 I think

      • jcice13

        my point exactly, they don’t have a plan for their WHC?

        • The Truth

          Also I’m not ruling out Taker vs Punk at Wrestlemania. Taker is notorious for hating dirt sheets so I think he’s just playing everybody

  • Marvin

    CM Punk vs Sheamus as substitute

    • Dalathan

      I disagree, there are lots of better opponents for Punk, I’d say Punk vs Ziggler would be tremendous. In other words heel vs heel, I’m sure it would work since both are loved by lots of fans who love technical wrestling. The only problem with this card would be Zigglers involvement in the WHC picture. There’s also Daniel Bryan, he might be in the main event picture soon, Christian returning to feud with Punk would be just as awesome, both undersized yet very talented going against each other. Sheamus isn’t at that level as a full package wrestler yet so it would be just another wasted wrestlemania for Punk. Low magnitude.

    • Thatoneperson

      I rather watch paint dry. I hate sheamus.

      • Chelsii

        You’d like him when he’s Heel.

        • Thatoneperson

          Nah, I hated him when he was heel too.

          • Chelsii

            Boo.

          • Thatoneperson

            :P Just never found him all that great.

    • DoingMaThing

      No…just no. I rather have those 2 off the WM match card.

      • CMmox

        I’d rather have Dwayne in a movie rather than in WM29 stealing the spotlight from the guy that carries the company since 2011.

        • DoingMaThing

          Good for you i guess? I dont care what you think or what you want

  • Kedo2

    I have one, punk vs shield.

    Punk should act like he never knew about the connection, so when shield attacks someone, he will “injure” one of them, on the next weeks he will “injure” another witch can go to 1 vs 1 match at WM.

    • Dalathan

      Punk vs Ambrose. That would be a match having the magnitude as big as Punk vs Bryan. Would wipe whole wrestlemania card out picture.

      • CMmox

        Maybe at WM31.

    • Kedo2

      Why thumbs down :’(

      • DoingMaThing

        I’m not a Punk fan but I hate your idea. I’m glad you don’t work for WWE.

        Shield should face Ryback and 2 others at WrestleMania

        • Rob

          I hate all of your ideas

    • Chelsii

      So, you want Randy Orton vs CM Punk but with the roles reversed?

      • Kedo2

        well … kinda.

        • Chelsii

          No. >:(

          • Kedo2

            okay :|

    • dave

      at bit late for that since we saw the video of paul heyman saying he and punk pay the shield when they need help

      • Kedo2

        but Paul is a liar :D

        • dave

          he may be a liar but it is hard to lie when there is a video of him.
          the thing is i always thought when the is the shield working with punk thing happened punk should of took one for the team and have the shield attack him so people would think maybe he isnt working with them

  • DoingMaThing

    I have decided that i will NOT attack CM Punk fans anymore starting now. Why? Because IT DOESN’T MATTER what people think about The Rock. No matter what you say Rock is still one of the best in history and your reigning, defending WWE Champion.

    So i will not care if you say that Rock sucks because I KNOW for a fact that he’s better than Punk overall and better than you. So I won’t care anymore what you say about The Great One.

    And yeah I would like to see Undertaker beat the self proclaimed “best in the world”. If Undertaker doesn’t wrestle than I won’t care who Punk gets to wrestle at Mania.

    • Kedo2

      ehm … why are you carrying this again here ?

      • DoingMaThing

        Because I want to. It’s that simple.

        • Kedo2

          So you want to argue ? Jeez …. have fun

          • DoingMaThing

            What part of “I won’t attack Punk fans” don’t you get?

            I’m tired of arguing. No matter what people say The Rock is still better. It’s a fact

          • Thatoneperson

            Nope

          • Kedo2

            let me rap it. You don’t want to argue, but you will write that Rock
            is best and that you will ignore if someone says rock is a piece of cake
            (noone but you mentioned him) ….

            I don’t get it.

          • Thatoneperson

            He’s a little slow.

          • DoingMaThing

            You don’t get it? I don’t feel like explaining sorry

          • Kedo2

            I just have a troll meter and it is crazy with this post :D

          • Rob

            I would like to take this opportunity to announce that “DoingMaThing” has just dethroned “Lisa” as the best troll in WNZ.

            Everyone give a fucking round of applause

          • Chelsii

            Stone Cold Steve Austin > The Undertaker > The Rock.

          • jcice13

            it’s not a FACT it’s an opinion, it’s yours and that’s fine but it’s not a fact

        • Thatoneperson

          Boo hoo, go cry elsewhere.

    • Chelsii

      Liar.

      • Thatoneperson

        My favorite person on this site.

        • Chelsii

          :D

        • DoingMaThing

          Yeah you like how most people have their lips on your @ss right?

          • Chelsii

            Boo hoo Lil’ Jimmy.

          • DoingMaThing

            Lol

          • Chelsii

            BOO HOO!

          • DoingMaThing

            Go feed your baby you terrible mother

          • Chelsii

            You know, I let most things slide. But if you were standing in front of me and said that. You’d be counting how many of your teeth have been left in your mouth. Don’t ever try to use that as an insult or anything else you waste of Human ejaculation.

          • Kedo2

            It’s a russian theatre … nothing in front and chairs in the back :P

          • DoingMaThing

            Oh really? Everyone can act tough on the internet you little keyboard warrior.

            I don’t live too far from you so come at me and try to touch me tough girl.

            I can say whatever I want. Don’t like it? Do something about it then.

          • Thatoneperson

            You sound like a real badass harassing a girl.

          • Kedo2

            I don’t know who to cheer for. Every once in a whle, both of them act reasonable and normal. But sometimes they do this.

          • DoingMaThing

            I was trying to stop this “war” with Punk fans but they keep on trying to bring me down. Luckily for me I dont go down.

            His little insult of “I’m a failed abortion” doesnt hurt me. I know my mother loves me. He just says that to break me but I won’t allow it.

          • Kedo2

            HOW CAN YOU STOP THE WAR WITH STARTING ANOTHER ?
            Are you retarded ? [x] YES [ ] no

          • Chelsii

            Like this.

            ? – Yes

            ? – No

          • DoingMaThing

            Read my comment again. i didn’t start another one.

            People on this website can’t respect others opinion. I should worship Punk to get them to like me. I won’t do it.

            And you are trying to get under my skin too I see but I won’t allow it.

          • Kedo2

            Your. First, Comment. Started. This.

            You. Started. The. War.

          • DoingMaThing

            No. I. Didn’t. Start. Anything.

            I joined this website in December commenting on articles about The Rock. I quickly realized that people started dissing me because they didn’t like the idea of Rocky becoming WWE Champion.

            I got annoyed and started annoying people to the point where i became a troll. When I realized this it was too late.

          • Kedo2

            Ok fuck it :D You just trollin.
            BTW: did you saw this kid ? :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xg0uEVzknxE

          • DoingMaThing

            And yeah that’s how Punk fans behave. Like wild animals. They have no class and wrestling is real to them. So sad.

          • Thatoneperson

            You’d be a disgrace to Punk’s elite fan base, and I still wouldn’t like you even if you were a fan of CM Punk.

          • DoingMaThing

            I wouldn’t be a disgrace to the Beliebers of wrestling Punktards. But ok dude think whatever you want.

            Why should I care that you dont like me? Just asking

          • DoingMaThing

            No i don’t. She threatened to “kick my butt”.

            I don’t hit women at all but i won’t allow her to touch me either

          • Chelsii

            You wouldn’t be able to stop me.

            Just sayin’.

          • DoingMaThing

            Believe whatever you want Chelsii.

            If thinking that you can beat me makes you sleep at night then ok go ahead.

            You obviously don’t know me and you feel strong because according to you I am a child.

          • God

            Stop picking on women with children, Harold… or I’ll forward that prostate cancer you’re suppose to get at 42 to now.

          • DoingMaThing

            Grab your powers…shine them up real nice, turn them sum b*tches sideways AND STICK THEM STRAIGHT UP YOUR CANDY @SS!!!

          • God

            Why did I ever let you survive falling out of that tree when you were 8 which gave you severe brain trauma?

          • Rob

            THIS!

          • CMmox

            hahahahhaha this gotta be the best DAMN! account WNZ has seen!

          • Dalathan

            In all honesty, you never seemed like a serious person here, nor a threatening guy, rather a joke to the likes of me. But seriously, how far do you tend to drop starting to boast about being able to defend against a woman in a fight. Women deserve equal rights, both have to respect each other, but if you’d even think about laying a hand on a woman it’d just show how pathetic you really are. I understand that defending isn’t wrong, but offensive defense against a woman is a cowards act. Prove me wrong I dare you.

          • Kedo2

            you know equal rights and men threatening women are 2 NONequal things ?

          • DoingMaThing

            Ok I’m sick of your rants you preacher.

            LISTEN AND LISTEN GOOD. I would NEVER and I mean NEVER hit a woman. You got that? I couldnt hit a woman ever.

            I would never hit Chelsii but I won’t allow her to touch me either. If Women deserve equal rights than they can’t hit a man either.

            Stop pretending that you know me just because I know how to get under your skin on this website. You know absolutely NOTHING about me.

            if you think that you are better than me then you need to look in the mirror.

          • Dalathan

            Let me get this straight. I told the truth, explained every thought of mine in small detail, defended women rights just out of respect to them and yet you came up with calling me a preacher. Why would even associate long detailed posts with that? I’d really like to stop arguing with you because it’s pointless, but at the same time I struggle within myself to continue expressing my disgust of your presence. You’ll never be on my level, not in wrestling knowledge, nor as a man.

          • DoingMaThing

            I fail to understand who exactly do you think you are.

            The fact that you think your better then someone YOU DON’T KNOW PERSONALLY means that you aren’t even half the man you want us to believe you are.

            Keep on lying to yourself about being better than me or anyone else.

          • Dalathan

            To you – I’m no one, to the rest – I guess the guy who makes more sense than you, can’t speak for anyone else though, just my opinion. But do you notice how In most threads you get disrespected and down-voted non-stop? Do you really think there’s no reason for it? I’ll admit that I might be very offensive sometimes, I try to use a calmer approach, but you also have to admit your own flaws, instead you just keep pissing everyone off. I was never intending to start arguments with you in the first place, you’re the one who started them because of your attitude towards some wrestlers as well as WNZ users.

          • DoingMaThing

            I get down-voted and disrespected because NO ONE here, including you, respects someone with a different opinion. That’s the reason.

            To all of you I’m the guy that makes no sense. To me, i’m the guy who actually makes sense but is often misunderstood. People are offended by the things i say. It’s not a real life issue, it’s just here on this website where im hated

            I admit that i’m annoying but i dont try to make things personal like you. I don’t act like i’m better than everyone.

          • Dalathan

            Even though we idolize different wrestlers and completely disagree with each other about their skills, I’d say we should bury the hatchet for now. I’m pretty sure we’ll clash later on, that’s inevitable, but at this point we’ve said enough. But don’t get me wrong, I’m no better than anyone, I simply hold my opinions very close to the truth, that might sometimes increase the aggressiveness level, which results in such arguments. I’m a man enough to admit that I tend to be too hateful to those who fight me, but I respect the fact you don’t back down from your opinion. Staying true is most important. But I really suggest to refrain from name-calling wrestlers without serious arguments, that hurts your own reputation.

          • Aveline

            Haha, these guys are like Punk and The Rock goin’ at it again. AN EARLY REMATCH!

          • Dalathan

            Did I win the match though?

          • Aveline

            One-sided squash match. :D

          • Dalathan

            Yay! Bearhug? ?(?(?)?)?

          • Aveline

            xD

          • Rob

            We respect opinions but we don’t respect you.

          • DoingMaThing

            You don’t respect opinions thats a lie.

          • Rob

            I respect opinions just not the way that you express yours.

          • Aveline

            Why you so stupid? No offense but offense. Did mommy drop you on your head? Aww poor thing.

          • DoingMaThing

            Hey look…Aveline joined the gang of people trying to insult me!

            I’m not stupid at all…you just dont agree with the things i say

          • Thatoneperson

            Don’t let him get to you. He’s just an abortion gone wrong.

          • Chelsii

            It can say whatever it wants, but it’ll never comprehend what it’s like to be a Human being, beyond it’s 12 year old mindset.

          • Rob

            So he is like Charlie from it’s always sunny? Now I know why he is so fucking retarded

          • Thatoneperson

            Actually, Chelsii and I have disagreed on a lot of things. For one she dislikes the hardy boys and I don’t. She hates Ryber and I find him funny. So your point is invalid.

    • Chelsii

      *Reads the comments* You’re doing a great job of not attacking Punk fans. x

    • Dalathan

      You want straight facts? Punk is a better technical and all-around wrestler, that’s not an opinion, it’s a fact. He cuts better promos because of his originality and seriousness as well as the vast amount of truth in his promos. You don’t even understand why exactly did Punk dominate Dwayne the whole match at Royal Rumble, all Dwayne did was just hit few signature moves. If you deny Punk carried the match, you’re in absolute denial. “And the fact that Dwayne is the main event of wrestlemania and he’s not makes me sick!”

      • Thatoneperson

        Yep.

  • Opie Taylor

    If Punk vs Taker does happend at WM, it should be the Main Event

    • Rob

      It should but won’t…

    • jcice13

      I have to disagree even though I am not looking forward to rock/cena that’s going to be the main event the best thing though would be cena wins ia all beateb down and dolph runs in and cases his MITB and becomes champ, but you know that ain’t happening

      • CMmox

        DZ can cash in ONLY against the WHC. Why people don’t get it?

        • jcice13

          totally slipped my mind was trying to think up ways to get the belt off cena LOL

          • CMmox

            lol it’s OK just remember that Cena is the FIRST ever who couldn’t cash in successfully the MitB briefcase lol.

          • jcice13

            and it was a great moment, at the rate they’re going it looks as if they’re going to make dolph the first one to NOT cash it in at all

          • CMmox

            Just look at the fact that the briefcase is more beaten up than DZ himself, lol.

  • AJStylesTheBest

    Dwayne “The Crock” Johnson & Yawn Cena make me sick!

  • CMmox

    1.CM Punk vs Brock Lesnar – Heyman’s job on the line (Brock as Face)
    2.CM Punk vs HHH – Punk gets his win back from NoC 2011
    3.CM Punk vs Dolph Ziggler (c) vs Del Rio (former WHC) vs Orton (WHC #1 Contendership EC) – WHC

    Pick your choice WWE un-creative

    • Thatoneperson

      Brock as a face, no. Why can’t we just have two heels face off with each other? :(

      • Kedo2

        Exactly my thought

      • CMmox

        Because it’s WWE we’re talking about. Last heel vs heel I remember is Orton vs Edge when Rated RKO had broke up.

      • Jordan Legacy

        You just can’t have it happen. It never works. Every time that I remember two heels facing off, the crowd does not get into it. They get confused and start to burn the match verbally. It would have to be RIGHT. Like, if there is a heel that everybody just happens to love, put him up with another heel, but then, we all know that will be the cause of a turn so in the end, it was never even really a heel vs heel match to begin with.

      • Sean Patrick

        LOVE heel fights.

    • Chelsii

      This might sound shocking, but I don’t like any of those matches… after Punk’s 434 day reign, for Wrestlemania… there’s nothing else than him being in the main event with John Cena and Dwayne. At least have Face Punk v Heel Lesnar.

      • CMmox

        I agree that Punk-Rock-Cena would be the best choice but I guess it ain’t going to happen.

        • Coghlan8Wife

          So he can job the The Rock and Cena. No Thank You

          • Chelsii

            Cena will pin Dwayne regardless, Punk is that balance towards it being a mediocre match and an amazing match. Last year was just a god awful botch fest, given Punk’s abilities and the storyline. It’s only right it’s a triple threat.

          • Coghlan8Wife

            So you want Punk and Dwayne to do all the work and Cena just swoop up and pin Dwayne.

          • Chelsii

            No, I don’t want Cena to win at all, but that’s what’s going to happen.

          • CMmox

            Actually Punk regaining with the hope that he drops it to Dragon down the road.

          • Coghlan8Wife

            Not going to happen Cena winning at WM is set in stones as much as we hate it.

          • SdotC

            Again, dude…you gotta find some common ground. I think 90% of us, myself included, would love for Punk to win that triple-threat, then have him drop the title to Bryan at Summerslam…but that’s not going to happen. Stuff like this is why WWE looks at the internet fans and laughs, because we refuse to see the bigger picture.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kfydrych1 Kevin Fydrych

    Hopefully we don’t see him at WM. THAT would be awesome

  • http://www.facebook.com/princetrill Trey Doss

    something punk should do is not end the street i mean really 20yrs u can’t end it but u can stop the streak by letting it flatline

  • Rob

    95 comments holy fuck new record?

    • AJStylesTheBest

      102 Comments!!!

      • Rob

        New record alrdy broken!!

    • Thatoneperson

      Yea I’ve posting on this article since like 9am this morning.

      • Rob

        I can see the reason why lol

  • Danny Morgan

    Punk vs lesnar for me- big profile match probably more interesting than rock vs cena 2

    • CMmox

      probably?

  • Fritz

    Triple H gets his @ss kicked for 3 weeks by Brock and Punk. He finally decides he needs a tag partner. What better partner than the man who earned his respect at last wrestlemania.

    • Thatoneperson

      I love it. Book it, book it now.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joseph.douglas.96 Joseph Douglas

    It should be Rock vs Punk at Wrestlemania with Punk regaining the title.

    • CMmox

      You know it ain’t going to happen since Super Duper Saiyan lv5 Cena won the RR.

  • Maze Of Torment

    I’m reading Undertaker is going back and forth on Wrestlemania because of money and placement on the card (though The Streak is massive, he has been in the middle of the card with Hunter for 2 straight Wrestlemanias). Shame.

    Here’s Plan B, screw up Punk vs. Rock II, get Punk into Cena vs. Rock. Big time triple threat match dammit. No twice in a lifetime, Punk is the heel of the feud, and he main events the PPV. Is that really hard?

  • CMmox

    unfortunately it’s true

  • CMmox

    I think that Punk-HHH or Punk-Taker would be the best choices. In both cases you know the outcomes BUT as far as Punk-Lesnar goes that could happen this year or the next or the next, since Brock signed for 2 more years till WM31. But you know you have only one chance to book Punk vs legends like these two because the matches they have left aren’t countless.

    • SdotC

      I agree, but I think HHH is the right opponent this year. Even though it would’ve been better last year with HHH as the heel, this would be better than nothing. I strongly believe that if Punk wrestles the Undertaker, he absolutely must win. Even though I say that it’s only an internet perception that Rock beating Punk makes the whole roster look weak, if HHH, Rock and Taker all defeat Punk without him beating any of them, all within the roughly 18months that he’s been on top, it’s saying that he’ll never be on their level, especially considering Cena and Orton have beaten HHH, and Cena is about to beat Rock. So if by my wish Punk must beat Taker, then they shouldn’t wrestle this year. Give Taker the year off, have him beat Cena next year, then Punk beats him. But it’s a tough call because who knows if it’ll have the same effect on Punk’s career 2 years from now, maybe someone else will need that legendary win then the same way he does now.

        Agree Punk should face HHH. AND Brock face Undertaker and lose, for obvious reasons:1.The Streak continues, 2.Brock signed a contract extention till WM31, so he has plenty of matches coming up.

          I would NOT have Brock vs Taker. No way. First of all, Taker can’t physically handle a match with Brock. It would either be a snoozefest or Taker would likely die in the middle of the ring. Plus, if Brock is going to lose then they might as well just appease HHH and give him the win. I say if Brock is staying for 2 years, he shouldn’t lose another match for a long time. Maybe not even until next WM. If I’m booking, Brock beats HHH again or maybe Ryback at WM29, beats Orton and Bryan in 2013, but in tough matches putting those guys over, then he loses to Seamus at WM 30. Punk and Wade Barrett would also make good choices but I’d go with Seamus. I’m not a huge Seamus fan but I’m not biased either. Then I’d have Rock vs Brock II at WM31

            I would definitely LOVE to see Lesnar vs Barrett in a Street Fight and also Lesnar vs Sheamus in a Last Man Standing match.
