This is absolutely the best segment of Rock talking trash to Triple H: you can even see Triple H and Steph trying so hard not to laugh and keep a straight face:

so cm punk is coming back tonight?

According to Jim Ross, there is a 55% chance of that happening.

Meanwhile, two matches have already been signed for WrestleMania XXX.

WWE Championship: Randy Orton © vs. Batista

Absolutely nobody is looking forward to this main event. Fans hate Orton, but they hate Batista even more because he simply didn't deserve to win the Royal Rumble.

The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

Once again, the Undertaker's undefeated WM streak is on the line, but given Lesnar's track record, why should he be the one to break it when others didn't?

Newest matches added to WrestleMania XXX:

Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H

Brian's road to the championship has been derailed month after month for nearly a year, primarily due to HHH. But if he beats HHH in this match, he will be added to the WWE Championship title match between Randy Orton and Batista. Will Bryan finally get his revenge?

John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt

What a waste of Wyatt's time. Wyatt should be going for a championship title by now - whether it's the WWE, Intercontinental, or U.S. title.

Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

The Hulkster announced a battle royal to be held at WMXXX, with the winner earning a commemorative trophy. Already confirmed for this event are Curtis Axel, Ryback, and Big E Langston - all three guaranteed to be eliminated.

  • 2 weeks later...

WrestleMania XXX is coming this Sunday, April 6. Here's the card so far, along with my predictions:

WWE Championship: Randy Orton © vs. Batista vs. (Daniel Bryan or Triple H)

The buildup to this match has been nothing short of disastrous, so the WWE bookers decided to make it a triple-threat with either Daniel Bryan or Triple H as the third man. Hopefully, they'll set it up just like WrestleMania XX, with Bryan in Chris Benoit's position as the underdog.

Battle for the Third Spot: Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H

At this point, this could be the end of nearly a year of corporate politics screwing Bryan over. If HHH wins, expect a huge riot.

Undefeated Streak vs. the F-5: Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar

Forget it - UT's not gonna lay down for anyone at WM, regardless of his age.

John Cena vs. Bray Wyatt

Yes, this is a waste of Wyatt's time, but if he wins, championship gold will be right on his doorstep.

Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

Thirty of the most underused Superstars try to throw each other out for one trophy. Unfortunately, all the really good wrestlers such as Christian and Dolph Ziggler will not win this match. It might end up in the hands of either Big Show or The Great Khali (probably as a reward for becoming a naturalized U.S. citizen).

Vickie Guerrero Divas Championship Invitational

Current champion AJ Lee better watch her back, as thirteen other Divas will be after her as punishment for insulting the SmackDown General Manager. This also means AJ cannot trust her own bodyguard, Tamina Snuka. Normally, I'd call this a piss-break, but there's been some slight improvements to the quality of the Diva matches.

Six-Man Tag Team Match: The Shield (Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns) vs. Kane & the New Age Outlaws ("Road Dogg" Jesse James & "Bad Ass" Billy Gunn)

In a surprise turn of events, The Shield turned face, effectively debunking all rumors of disbandment. For the most part, expect them to win.

Pre-Show Kick-Off - WWE Tag Team Championship (Fatal Four-Way): The Usos (Jimmy & Jey) © vs. Los Matadores (Diego & Fernando) vs. The Real Americans (Jack Swagger & Antonio Cesaro) vs. Ryback & "Mr. Imperfect" Curtis Axel

What we have here are eight more of the most underused Superstars in the current roster - all fighting for free on YouTube. If anything, Swagger and Cesaro will win this match. BTW, Ryback and Axel are still around?

Corey Burton (Spike and Shockwave in The Transformers, Megatron and Ratchet in Transformers: Animated) as Bayard and the ring announcer

Synopsis

Scooby-Doo and Shaggy win an all-expenses-paid stay at WWE City to see WrestleMania. But when the Mystery Inc. Gang arrives, they discover that the town has been terrorized by a "Ghost Bear" over the past few weeks. After a recent bear attack, Mr. McMahon hires the gang to solve the mystery for the security of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship belt.

Story: C-

Take your typical Scooby-Doo! plot and fill in the blanks with WWE Superstars. And what do you get? Well, another Scooby-Doo! story, but with wrestlers. You have the same recycled formula that contains the following tropes:

  1. The Mystery Machine breaks down or crashes just in front of town.
  2. The town is being terrorized by a ghost.
  3. Scooby and Shaggy spend most of the film running from the ghost while Fred, Daphne, and Velma look for clues.
  4. The gang sets a trap for the ghost, but it typically doesn't work perfectly.
  5. "... And I would've gotten away with it too, if it weren't for you meddling kids! And your dang dog!"

And just to be hip with today's crowd, Fred has a digital SLR camera, Daphne has a smartphone, and Velma has a tablet. Nothing says "cash grab" like this film, which tries too hard to cater to both fans of Scooby-Doo! and the WWE Universe. Unfortunately, it suffers from the same issue Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n' Wrestling had during its broadcast: It's outdated. Vinnie Mac, John Cena, and Triple H will never change and AJ Lee is hot, but no one cares about The Miz, Santino Marella or Brodus Clay (especially since Santino recently retired and Brodus was just released). This would've been better if it came out in 2012. As a matter of fact, the release of this film was apparently delayed because CM Punk was originally in it, and we all know what happened to him.

For the most part, the voice acting is tolerable. Frank Welker's version of Scooby is a good rendition of the late Don Messick's version, even though he does talk too much. The WWE Superstars themselves are not bad; good thing Stephanie McMahon and Vickie Guerrero are not part of the cast.

Perhaps the single most disappointing part of this film is the fact that not once does Vinnie Mac yell, "YOU'RE FIRED!" - not even in the ending. After all, animated or not, he's Vincent Kennedy McMahon.

Animation: B-

I'll give the Korean animators props for staying faithful to the late Iwao Takamoto's original character designs, but cel-shading the Mystery Machine just isn't the same. At least AJ Lee proves that just like Jessica Rabbit, she's not bad - she's just drawn that way.

Soundtrack: C

Aside from using WWE entrance themes, the score by Ryan Shore (Stan Helsing) is mostly unnoticeable.

The Bottom Line

Scooby-Doo! WrestleMania Mystery lays the smackdown on itself and crashes through the Spanish announcers' table.

Lets see I rank tonight's WRESTLEMANIA a....

Overall D+

Great hilarious intro A+

Great opening match with Daniel Bryan and HHH A+

Six man tag match good skill, but too short C+

Andre Battle Royal was a nice surprise B+

Cena vs Wyatt boring match with some decent story moments C-

Lesnar vs Taker sell the moves you F***ing moron! F-

Diva battle Royal was crap double D+

WWE championship B+

I'm not too upset that Taker's streak was broken, it had to happen some time, and Taker isn't getting any younger but to drop the streak to a guy that can't sell your moves is disgusting. Four different times Lesnar f***ed up Taker's moves. He couldn't even put his arm in the right spot for Hell's gate and the move looked like crap because of it.

You know what bothers me about this? Normally, when a current or former WWE Superstar passes away, WWE posts a tribute video immediately. It's been about three days, and WWE has not done one for the Warrior.

Meanwhile, three people that once hated the Warrior the most paid their respects via Twitter:

"We are all so sad that the Ultimate Warrior has passed away. Our heart is with his wife Dana and his two daughters." - Vince McMahon

"Saddened to announce the passing of the Ultimate Warrior. Icon and friend. My sympathy to his wife Dana and his daughters" - Triple H

"RIP WARRIOR. only love. HH" - Hulk Hogan

WWE Superstars React to the Ultimate Warrior's Passing
