Rock and Punk Further Their Feud On Twitter, Austin Surprised With Velez’ Release

– As Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was answering fan questions on Twitter Sunday afternoon, WWE Champion CM Punk tweeted a picture of a CM Punk action figure standing over a Johnson action figure that had been knocked out by the GTS. Johnson responded, “You knocked by delivering a GTS. I’ll answer by delivering the ass kicking of a lifetime. @WWE Championship #Rumble2013 #RockTalk.”

Johnson announced at Raw 1,000 that he would face whoever the WWE Champion is at the Royal Rumble. A match between Johnson and Punk, however, may not take place at the pay-per-view event. It was reported last week that WWE officials are contemplating a scenario where Punk drops the WWE Championship to John Cena at SummerSlam to set up a rematch between Cena and Johnson at Royal Rumble. Johnson would then defeat Cena at the Rumble and defend the title against Punk at WrestleMania XXIX.

Johnson also noted on Twitter that he “Spent time w/ some of our US Olympic Gold medalists last night” and that he was “So proud of them.” He is currently in London, England filming scenes for the sixth installment of The Fast and the Furious franchise.

– Upon learning of developmental talent Ivelisse Vélez’ release from WWE last week, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, who coached the Puerto Rican grappler on Tough Enough last year, tweeted, “I was very surprised to hear that.”

Meanwhile, Vélez has changed her Twitter handle to @RealIvelisse. She has re-tweeted multiple fan messages in support of her.

    They should have kept Cena with MITB, have Punk/Rock build-up to RR, then Cena cash in MITB the Raw before RR.
    Sets up Cena/Rock for RR. Punk to win RR, and face the Rock at WM.

    thats why i said shoot-wise… last year, punk was bashing rock on news stations, on twitter (without any storyline), and live events. it was really random and very cool to see someone stand up for the guys being held down. but ever since then, his ‘pipebombs’ have been reduced down to some storyline with AJ Lee. idk but it seems like punk is fine with having rock main event ppvs, as long as it is against him.

    *give out/ moan about Rock

  • IrishRhyno

    Nnac,didnt he just give about about Rock getting an automatic title shot,when he was doing the promo with Lawler after Raw1000? And plus Rock has had 2 matches so what could Punk say?

  • nnac

    punk whined about rock main eventing ppvs when punk wasnt champ… now that hes champ, he isnt saying anything shoot-wise about rock main eventing again….

  • Jon-Jon

    We all know they’ll just end up having Rock/Cena 3 if this all plays out in Cena’s favor. I really hope Cena goes ahead and wins it now, loses at the Rumble to Rock, Punk wins the Rumble, and Rock vs Cena vs Punk happens at Mania.

  • Jericho4life

    I Am sick of Cena Losing to Rock !

  • Tha don

    Agree,.. Not happening. Rock beats punk at rumble for belt, then cena wins belt back from rock in rematch at mania.

  • Robinson
