Taker wants to keep his streak intact, as do the majority of the higher-ups but don’t be shocked if it happens. Vince McMahon is in favor of it.
After WrestleMania 23, expect for the WWE to call several of the OVW regulars up. CM Punk, Elijah Burke, Antonio Banks and Monty Brown are all expected to make their WWE debuts sometime after April 1st.
Expect some sort of tag team showcase match to take place at WrestleMania with top tag teams for both brands being involved. We're not sure if it will be on the actual show, the pre-show, or the DVD at this point though.
We reported weeks ago that Stone Cold Steve Austin was heading towards the end of his run with the WWE. Well, you can add The Rock in that category as well. Though Rock has thoroughly enjoyed his current run, he’s been bitten by the movie bug once more and is on his way back to Hollywood. The current plan is for Rock to stay around a while longer though, possibly until SummerSlam. He wants to give back a bit more to the company and has proposed a feud with WrestleMania 23 headliner, Mr. Kennedy.
