Lesnar vs. HHH Again?, Undertaker Update, Foley Overshadowed, Major App Announcement

Why does WWE have to do Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H again? Can't the writers think outside the box like Sheamus or Randy Orton for Brock?

Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H isn't confirmed for Wrestlemania 29 but we should find out on tonight's episode of Raw which direction WWE plans to take. With Vince McMahon and Paul Heyman advertised to "fight" and Lesnar advertised to appear, it doesn't take much to connect the dots. Vince McMahon and Hunter were very pleased with how the bout drew at SummerSlam and felt it should be done again before blowing it off. Lesnar is under contract for two more years after Wrestlemania so perhaps at least one of your aforementioned programs are visited. I've gone on record in stating I would have rather have seen Brock vs. The Rock for the WWE title at Wrestlemania 29 this year.  Apparently it's been brought up for SummerSlam.

With Undertaker returning to WWE over the weekend and WWE uploading footage, is it a guarantee he'll appear on Raw tonight?

Nothing in this business is a guarantee until it actually happens. Undertaker returned to WWE at the Smackdown live event in Waco, Texas last Saturday night. The word from one of my sources is he wanted some low profile matches to see how he felt before working Wrestlemania. I'm under the assumption he's leaning towards working but we can't confirm anything as of this writing. The holdup has been over money with reservations over his health. Him working on Saturday tells me he's content with the former and wanted to try out the latter.

Have you heard any reactions from readers about being frustrated over Mick Foley no longer being the WWE Hall of Fame headliner this year? I know Triple H doesn't like Foley and I understand Bruno Sammartino's accomplishments, but isn't upsetting that he had to be paid and courted to accept the nomination? Where as I'm sure it's the biggest thing in the world for Foley. It just feels wrong.

Mick Foley has always downplayed a beef with Triple H but the bottom line is Hunter has never been a big fan of Foley and never felt he had the look of a major star. This is why some people felt Hunter was willing to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as a member of DeGeneration X this year if he couldn't get Bruno Sammartino to agree. Kind of like a way to take a way some of the luster from Foley's big moment. It seems petty but Bruno Sammartino was a priority before Foley or anyone else. WWE wanted to induct Bruno in Madison Square Garden and Foley was asked when it looked like a deal wasn't going to get done. I haven't heard much frustration as most readers seem really pleased with this year's very strong Hall of Fame class.

When are you all going to have an Android application?

I am thrilled to announce that we're launching a brand new Application called Dirt Sheet. The App will be available on all Apple devices (iPhone, iPod and iPad) as well as in the Google Play store for Android users. This will not be replacing our current iPhone Application as it will be in addition too. Dirt Sheet is basically a dream come true for members of the Internet Wrestling Community as you'll be able to get news from multiple sources and interact in ways never before possible. We are awaiting approval from both Apple and Android but you can preview the new App with screen shots here at DirtSheet.com.

    Nobody wants to see hhh vs lesnar 2. End of story. What is this, the Wrestlemania of rematches?

    • 1molly23

      I for one definitely don’t want to see Lesnar vs. anyone!

      • I’m with Molly! The last thing I want to see is Lesnar in a WWE ring. That man makes me very nervous, and he doesn’t seem to care about the safety of anyone in the ring with him. This is my personal feelings on Lesnar and not those expressed by WNW!

        • Benjamin

          That’s exactly what makes him a joy to watch. He doesn’t follow the same tired formula all the rest of the roster do. You legitimately fear Brock Lesnar if you met him in an alley you’d crap your pants. You meet Dolph Ziggler, would you even side step out of his way I don’t think so.

          • Jimmy

            Dolph Ziggler isn’t portrayed as a monster heel, his gimmick is a show off. So obviously you wouldnt be scared of a show off coz your not supposed to be.

          • Benjamin

            Im not really talking gimmicks im talking wrestlers in general, you shouldnt be thinking ok i could take this guy in a fight about any of them, they should have that that characterisic that ok yes maybe they can goof around now and again but at the end of the day they can still kick your ass and i just dont get that feeling from most of the superstars, but ok yes if you then want to look at any of wwes monsters im not sure youd be legitimitately intimidated by any of them other than Mark Henry. scared of any of except mark henry who comes across as a legitimate badass

          • Xavier

            I’d like to see you step in the ring with any of the wrestlers. They would whoop your candy ass.

          • Benjamin

            Oh good one there lad, real original, can’t think of anything intelligible to say so you resort to that, real nice!!

        • 1molly23

          Thank you Kendra – my point exactly.

        • soulfool

          Oh…Please , Kendra ?!? You are such a WWE mark , and I just wouldn’t want to see the whole bullshit rivalry being revised because all WWE is doing is putting over two of the biggest asshole egomaniac’s that EVER graced the company…hence why I call the whole ordeal an ego match , cause that is what it is !!! HHH is McMahon-LapDog thru and thru and this is just a bonafide act of “desperation” on their part !!!

    • Boogie

      I want to see it. Story reopened…

    • shwo

      it will be lesnar/taker

    • chris

      You don’t know any better.

    • personally id rather see this than cena vs the rock.

  • Marking out

    I feel like the draw of Lesnar/Rock might be better but, How do you put two part timers in the ring and expect a 4-5 star match going 30 minutes? Neither are in ring shape and neither can call a great match by themselves now. I would rather see HHH vs Lesnar and see a great match than think about the “pipe dream” of Rocky/Brock

    • Benjamin

      It’s not that much of a pipe dream because you’ll be watching it in a years time.

      • Marking out

        “pipe dream” as in seeing the two actually have a great match, not the fact it might happen. People bash HHH all the time, the man can call a fantastic match

  • cobra

    Last year Edge and the Four Horseman both went in. So I don’t see the big deal with Mick Foley going in with Bruno Sammartino. Some people claim the WWE Hall of Fame isn’t legit. Then they put 2 big names in and then they are complaining.

    • Win

      They weren’t going to be satisfied anyway…The Hall of Fame has already inducted Andre the Giant, Bret Hart, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Stone Cold, HBK, Gorilla Monsoon, Roddy Piper and so forth. If it wasn’t legitimate before this year, Sammartino isn’t going to make it happen. People tend to lionize the past, even if they are not familiar with it.

  • Win

    These are the type of juvenile antics that worry me about Triple H taking control of the WWE. You never viewed Foley as a star, but yet one of the, if not the best rivalry Triple H had in his prime and development into a star was against Cactus Jack. I witnessed Cactus Jack do some horrible things to his body to get Triple H’s image as “The Game,” over so it sickens me to hear the overt effort to minimize his place in WWE history. I think this extra effort to give Mick the short straw is 10 times more mind-boggling than his effort to attract Sammartino to the HOF. I don’t get how one legend gets the red carpet treatment and the other, who put his body in harms way to add to your legend, inexplicably gets the cold shoulder. With this type of treatment, enjoy the return of superstars past, now, because I don’t see many caring too make cameo appearances under the Triple H regime.

    • Jimmy

      Very true, and the only time iv’e seen HHH acknowledge Micks name was in a promo with CM Punk on Raw before Night Of Champions 2011. But im sure he just brought it up to get a cheap pop from the crowd because that was when Punk was way over and would always get cheered no matter who he was in the ring with.

  • PFElton

    This has gone from being potentially the biggest WrestleMania ever to one of the weakest WrestleMania’s ever. I could not care less to see Second Time in a Lifetime. Know why they might do a Triple Threat with CM Punk involved? So The Rock doesn’t have to do the job to SuperCena and he can keep popping up five times a year and headline the show while all other up-and-coming stars get their pushes frozen(Read: RYBACK).

    • Xavier

      Its still the biggest WM ever, Cena vs Rock II is gonna blow the roof off for the second time. Triple H will get his anticipated victory over Brock and nobody even cares about Rybotch, Underbotcher or CM Botch.

  • Lesnar vs Taker is already set up from when Lesnar was UFC champ if they want go with that. Surely that is the money match!

    • Jimmy

      Isn’t that legit beef between them though?

      • you are dumb


        • Xavier

          Yes it is dumbass, you wouldnt have Brock lose a UFC fight which is real to have him come out and confront the Undertaker thinking “oh yea if i confront him hear in the real world of UFC than it will set up perfectly for next years wrestlemania” get outta of here mark.


    Guys, this is just hhh’s ego. ake no mistake about it. He just wants a win over Lesnar.

  • stoney

    Foley was the one that turned triple h into a big star.

    Apparently i read somewhere that Triple H said that Funaki put more asses in seats than Foley did, but his title win on Raw 1999 had 600000 viewers switch from Nitro to Raw.

  • tomcatjerrymouse

    There are so many possibilities for a Brock Lesnar match at WM. I’d love to see Lesnar/Ryback. But as usual Triple H and his ego just can’t stay away from WM. I wonder when they’re gonna stop bringing in former stars to sell WM. What I wonder is what’s the point of building new stars like CM Punk, Sheamus, ADR and Daniel Bryan only to be get their main event spots taken away from them in the most important ppv of the year because VKM still insists on relying on guys from the past. The WWE is a freakin’ joke.

  • Jimmy

    HHH always talks about about ‘the look’ and what a maineventer should look like, but that new haircut of his says the exact opposite. Can not picture him in a match with that hair.

  • Jimmy

    HHH/Lesnar 2, Rock/Cena 2, Kane/Bryan 2? They should call it “Rematchmania”

    • Kane vs Bryan not happen….they have a tag team match against Rey and Sin Cara

  • You know what I don’t get? All I hear on here is people longing for the good old days. Long title reigns, lengthy feuds, attitude era storylines and so on, but when you get these things (punks historic reign, swaggers character, lesner V triple H… twice) god forbid somebody should wrestle someone more than once!! All you do is complain!!

  • soulfool

    Foley is Great !!! I loved his work during The Attitude Era , ” in retrospect” ECW and WCW !!! However , like others that weren’t “considered” wrestler’s , but as “stuntmen” , by guy’s like Flair , Hogan , Nash , et al. The dude held his own and I would stack him alongside several “Legend’s” and then some !!! As fo what HHH think’s about star quality…STICK IT UP YOUR Fn’ ASS , Hunter McMahon !!! ROTFGL…Jack-Off !!!

  • soulfool

    WWE is A shit-flusher !!!

  • soulfool

    Hogan , HHH , Nash , Flair , Bischoff , Russo , the like…are all big-headed bitches that care about no one but themselves and think they know what’s right for the business !!!
