When Rock announced that he's going to be at WM next year in the New York Market, I expected a record breaking business, but a $10 million gate on the first weekend? That's surprising. If that figure is real, WM29 is going to break every live event record in wrestling and MMA history. Only boxing PPVs did better at the gates and that's never going to change because of the insane ticket prices for the Mayweather/Pacquiao fights. MMA's biggest live gate was last year in the SkyDome with a $12 million for the GSP fight. If they want any chance to break the buyrate record of last year when the interest in wrestling is probably at an all-time low from the general public, as Clique suggested, Rock/Brock with Mayweather as the special enforcer is the perfect match, a once in a lifetime opportunity and maybe even the last chance to create a real world buzz about anything wrestling-related. You take the 3 biggest drawing attractions of all time from their sport/industry worldwide and put it in one huge program in the NY market, that's a blockbuster(Tyson was bigger than Floyd IMO, it was a huge deal when Tyson was on PPV but Floyd shattered every record even if he has the higher availability advantage). If they have all these guys available on the same night and they're not doing it? That's sabotaging the company on purpose.

he is back in London filming Fast 6. Pfft wonder if he will do the people's elbow from up there
That's explains why he flies to London and back like he's driving to the grocery or something lol. Probably the final touches for Fast 6.
WM29 can be something special, all they need to do is to put the characters in the right place. Let's see if they're at least capable of doing it today.

That's all Cena knows so that's all Cena will bring to the table.
Thats because cena is a one trick pony, saying the same shit that is not even relevant or funny
. At least the rocks catchphrases are funny etc. If there is a cena and rock 2 i would love it...... Absolutely love it if it was 2-0 to the rockand the over rated cena didnt get his win back, it would be an insult if someone like john cena beat the g.o.a.t.
Top 5 (At the moment):
1. Damien Sandow
2. Daniel Bryan
3. Seth Rollins
4. CM Punk
5. Antonio Cesaro
In all my time on WF i have read some dumb shit but this tops anything so far.... TheMizFitWF - "No-one expected Sandow to lose" (regarding his failed cash-in against Cena)
I started watching WWE again because of Punk............ I stayed for Sandow!!!
There are two potential ways we can have Rock-Lesnar at Wrestlemania XXIX , just wanted to ask you guys which one you liked more :
1. Punk beats Rocky via interference from Lesnar , leading to a non-title Brock-Rock match at Wrestlemania XXIX (in this case, Taker comes back and wins the Rumble, causing Punk to be like AWWWFUCKKK)
2. Rocky beats Punk at the Rumble, Heyman brings back Lesnar to get revenge, thus we have our main event WWE Championship match.
However, if we have Rock-Brock at Mania, HOWDAFUQ do you book Cena-HHH-Punk-Taker ? I could care less honestly, as long as we get three singles matches between the 6 main guys and not some bullshit triple threat match. Rock-Brock would legit reach 2 million buys though.
I'd go with option 1, but have Ryback win the rumble instead setting up Punk-Ryback for Mania (although on the slim chance Austin was available you could set that up instead), have Cena face Taker, and I'm not really sure what you'd do with HHH, he could take a Mania off or there's maybe the chance of him doing a program with Henry (strange I know, but after summerslam I remember Henry tweeting something about wanting to face HHH).
lol Taker vs Ryback, I might actually skip Wrestlemania if that happens
