- WWE has added John Laurinaitis to the RAW roster page. He was previously listed on the Alumni section.

- As noted before, CM Punk is scheduled to feud with WWE Champion Alberto Del Rio for the next few WWE pay-per-views and the company is getting ready to go “full blown” with his push after being surprised by recent merchandise numbers.

There has been a lot of talk that Punk will win the WWE Title in late 2011 or early 2012 and carry it into WrestleMania 28.

WWE officials do not want the WWE Title to be a part of John Cena and The Rock’s match at WrestleMania.

    jericho in any match at wm would suck he is BORING as hell

  • Graham

    need to stop reading spoilers ;)

    Hopefully punk can win the title by RR and cena to join henry’s hall of pain.

    Undertaker vs Miz at WM…I’m calling it now.

    I like the Miz, but Taker has always been my favourite, but I think for people to Miz more seriously, he needs this match against Taker. Taker will win of course, but it will go a long way towards Miz’s future.

  • CM Mark

    I love you WWE if you give Punk a REAL title run, I will hate on you no longer! I might even be persuaded to like Cena…hmmmm. Nah!

  • Legend Killer

    You all seem to forget this is the WWE that expects us to lose all memory of anything from before the previous PPV.

  • MLucero

    I’m getting tired of seeing the same people fight over and over at this ppv and then the next ppv. I remember when they had enough major players to have different feuds from month to month.

  • D2K

    I guess this all but shoots-down any chance of Punk/Austin then. I wouldn’t mind a Punk/Jericho match in consolation.

    BEST NEWS IVE HEARD! THANK GOD NO MORE CENA IN TITLE MATCHES

  • venom

    Cena would probably win the WWE title back the night after Wrestlemania.

  • josh

    but then Cena will have broken a promise. If I recall, he said he would be champion going into the match. What will Little Jimmy think of him now?!?!?!?

  • Prince

    Best decision they’ve made in a long ass time.

  • Jimbo

    I’ll believe it when I see it.

    But if it does happen, it would be refreshing to see someone other than Cena as the face in the title picture. Would also be interesting to Cena in a non-title feud.

  • scsa852k

    What can I say… CM PUNK!!CM PUNK!!CM PUNK!!CM PUNK!!

  • venom

    This is a good move. I think it will be Punk vs Miz. Plus The Rock and Cena don’t need the title to be involved.

  • Matthew

    ok, so WWE is doing something right and something wrong: what they are doing right is putting the belt on CM Punk and giving him a full blown push into 2012 and putting him in a WM Main Event. Those are the three things they are doing right.
    Now then, the one thing they are doing wrong is not letting Cena/Punk be for the belt-you have two of the greatest champions from their generations, squaring off in the Main Event at WrestleMania 28, and it should be for the belt to determine which of them is the greatest champion of all time, and to the victor goes the spoils. This also completely ruins the Cena/Rock storyline, because on the the RAW after Capitol Punishment, John Cena was in the back with the Rock, held up the belt and told him that this is his present for him, and that his other present for him is that he will have the the belt for him at WrestleMania, basically saying it will be for the title. Way to go WWE on fucking up a perfectly good storyline for WrestleMania…IDIOTS!!!

  • RUSTanator

    why in the fuck should the rock get a title shot at wrestlemania anyway, fuck him!!!

  • ??

    We all know that the two main events at Wrestlemania will be whoever faces the Undertaker, and then the Rock/Cena match. So giving the title to Punk will just be to appease certain people.

    If this Wrestlemania card is set right. It could go down as one of the greatest Wrestlemanias in history.

  • breezy

    punk vs miz at wrestlemania

  • finallythekingjoinsin

    THANK GOD. On all fronts. Someone new as champ goin into mania makin it the first year Cena isnt n the title pic but he keeps his main event spot intact. Not to mention u have a true workhorse n Cm Punk aas champ goin into the grandaddy of them all. Sounds great, cant wait.

  • Zach D

    What’s the point of making it a WWE title match? All that does is take away another match for the WWE title. That’s a waste if they do that, so hopefully plans stay the same.

  • The Great One

    I love Punk but its kinda sad isnt it that he is getting a full blown push nit because of his talents but because there suprised how much merch he sold

  • mark

    this is a good decision , keep cena out of title picture atleast until wrestlemania

  • charlie

    yes! thats fucking awesome
