How does The Rock vs. John Cena compare to Rock vs. Hollywood Hulk Hogan at Wrestlemania X8 a decade ago?
I actually think The Rock vs. John Cena is a bigger match and has more hype surrounding it than Rock vs. Hogan. Hogan was already out of his prime by the time the Wrestlemania X8 match happened and this isn’t the case with Rock and Cena. Rock is not even 40 yet (Hogan was 48) and can still compete at a very high level. The Rock vs. Cena is unique in that you have one of the biggest stars of the Attitude Era versus the biggest star of today yet the former is still young enough to work at a top level. I’m not saying it’ll be the best Wrestlemania match ever, it might not even be the best match of the night, but I do not recall another bout having as much build and hype as Rock vs. Cena.
I would rather see The Undertaker face a younger worker in a “passing of the torch” at this year’s Wrestlemania XXVIII than another match with Triple H. Who would you like to see elevated to the next level by beating the streak?
The streak should remain intact and The Undertaker has earned the right to retire undefeated at Wrestlemania when he decides to retire. I was against Undertaker vs. Triple H III at first, however, after evaluating the options, I sold myself on it. There isn’t a worker currently on WWE’s roster worth utilizing to end the streak and with Undertaker’s uncertain health, it doesn’t benefit a younger worker to go under either. Therefore Undertaker versus Hunter with the Hell in a Cell gimmick provides an avenue for an entertaining match and a loss would not hurt Triple H. I do not know the outcome of the bout but I would be completely against an Undertaker loss at Wrestlemania XXVIII.
What happened to Kevin Nash? Why did he slowly fade out?
Kevin Nash is signed under a WWE Legend’s Contract, not a Performer’s Contract. There were never plans for Nash to return as a full-time performer. He’s under contract if WWE needs him for a future angle.
Any update on what’s in store for Evan Bourne? I just saw the video WWE posted two weeks ago and at the end he mentions going for the U.S. Title. Thoughts?
The video was the first good sign I’ve seen for Evan Bourne since his second Wellness Policy violation was announced on January 17, 2012. I heard Bourne would likely get cut from his WWE contract on the next round of releases and there hasn’t been a whole lot to change that position with him being edited out of the Raw Supershow opening video. With that being said something may have changed as he is eligible to return from suspension in a couple weeks.
