– Devin sent the following: WWE will be holding an event at the Forest National Arena in Brussels, Belgium on November 9th, 2011.

– DVR numbers for the January 24th Monday Night RAW, the final show before Royal Rumble, have came in and 209,000 homes watched RAW taped that week, a 94% live vs. 6% taped breakdown. This would have put the 3.29 rating up to a 3.50.

– WWE did all they could to keep The Rock’s appearance on RAW this past Monday a surprise. People working in WWE production were told that Justin Bieber would be announced as the WrestleMania 27 guest host. It was scripted into the show, titled “Leave it to Bieber.”

    @rusty, Undertaker vs Sting has already happened in WCW, it was Undertakers last match before going to WWE

    Dwayne Johnson is a 3rd generation wrestler, and one of the best in the business. It was never a matter of if but when…
    That crowd in Anaheim when beserk when the Rock came out on Raw… and listening to the Rock speak in the right that night reminded many what is missing from wrestling today.

  • Sting’s Son

    I agree with Rusty… My dad isn’t going to Wrestlemania to lose to that piece of shit Taker.. Which he sucks and that “streak” of his at WM its just too old now…. Sorry guys to say this people but get this on your stupid pickle sized heads…. my dad AKA Sting isn’t going to WWE he’s spending time with me =)

  • Ronald

    Okay, RUSTY. Thanks for being so smart.


    sting vs taker isnt going to happen.

    get it into your heads.

    there is no point to it, theres not enough time for a storyline to evolve, theres no way sting is losing to taker on his debut or vice versa

  • Ronald

    Oh, yes, the same way Sting’s debut is being kept a secret. I gotcha. Production people and anyone else with ears are being told “HHH vs Undertaker”…. yeah, that’s happening! Keep it quiet, ::wink,wink::, but tell the world! All the while Vince McMahon, John Laurinaitis, Paul Levesque, Stephanie McMahon-Levesque and Steve Borden know EXACTLY what’s going on. Muhahahaha! Or something like that.

  • RoadSign

    I knew the Friday before he would appear.


    wasnt it rumored and announced on here before it happened?

  • chandler

    yeah they should have Beiber at mania just so someone awesome could hit their finishing move on him

  • Scorpion Death Drop

    It would have been a complete surprise if Rock didn’t put “FINALLY…” on his facebook page.

  • jimbo jones

    you could hear a small section of the crowd chanting rocky as the woman’s legs got out of the limo . so sum 1 new about it

  • Assassino
