At WM27 he was the host of the show, the goal was to get the crowd hyped for the rest of the PPV which is why he did the Wrestle Mania part. According to every live report, crowd was going crazy for every word and it was the biggest reaction on the show so it did its job.

ONE WORD 4 MONTH FROM HELL HE MIGHT DIE BEFORE PAIN AND GAIN
Insanity. I believe that he will do his first appearance on 20 years RAW. After taking the belt at the Rumble, doing another 1-2 RAWs, then coming back the day after EC to start WM29. I imagine that from there he will be 50% of the time. Problem with RAW, is that he's doing worldwide promotion, especially for GI Joe which is going to be big.
Pain and Gain looked great from all the pics from the set, looking forward to it from his movies next year. You also got a special Rock/Angle interaction there.
