 What Is The Rock Doing Backstage at RAW Today?

As noted before, current plans for this year’s WrestleMania 29 event call for The Rock to defend the WWE championship title against John Cena.

WWEDVDNews.com received promotional material for the DVD/Blu-ray for Royal Rumble 2013 that may confirm that earlier report. The information on the package clearly informs us that The Rock will face John Cena for the WWE title at WrestleMania 29. Posted below is part of the promotional material.

http://wrestleshare.com/?pt=NSGG

 WWE officials actually discussed going against Brock Lesnar’s planned dates and have him work the January 7th RAW but obviously decided against it. Lesnar isn’t expected back until February.

– A source confirms that we will indeed be seeing more than just a few familiar WWE faces in this year’s 30-man Royal Rumble main event. It was recently rumored that WWE was planning to bring back some midcard talents and some of those same names were on a list for surprise Rumble entrants.

– Tommy Dreamer’s name was brought up in a recent WWE creative meeting about a surprise entrant in this year’s 30-man Royal Rumble match.

– Tonight’s WWE RAW will be the 20th Anniversary show and will take place from the ToyotaCenter in Houston, Texas. Confirmed for tonight’s show is The Rock’s Rock Concert segment, Kaitlyn vs. Eve Torres for the WWE Divas Title and the return of Dr. Shelby to evaluate Kane and Daniel Bryan.

Other familiar faces are expected to return, at least a few. A Ric Flair confrontation with CM Punk was planned as of a week ago. We also know that Jim Ross will be returning. WWE will be announcing Mick Foley’s Hall of Fame induction tonight but it remains to be seen if he will appear live or not.

* What will The Rock have to say about CM Punk in his Rock Concert?

* What does Dr. Shelby think about Team Hell No?

* Will Eve and Kaitlyn finally get to go one-on-one for the title?

* What is in store for the 12-time World Cham

 WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels is considered a lock for tonight’s RAW 20th anniversaryshow. WWE officials really wanted him there because he was the Intercontinental Champion onthe very first episode. Michaels is also from Texas so he will get the big local pop.

– Another star from Texas who is expected tonight is The Undertaker. It is confirmed that he will be wrestling at WrestleMania 29 and his most likely opponent is CM Punk. We may see the beginning of that feud tonight on RAW.
