Triple H Discusses Announcing The Rock vs. John Cena A Year Early, Main Draws For Wrestlemania 29, Possibility Of Austin vs. Punk

The New York Post has a new article online featuring a Q&A from Triple H. Below are the highlights:

Announcing The Rock vs. John Cena a year in advance:

Here’s the thing, Rock versus Cena being announced a year prior, that’s the first time we’ve ever done that. Wrestlemania itself is a big enough build. It’s a cultural event. It’s not just a sporting event or an entertainment event. Everybody will be talking about it the next day.

I think that having something like that is a double-edged sword because it could lose its luster over the course of the year, if you hear about it enough, or it can be the attraction that you have to go see at the end of that year.

I think this year as we go forward the excitement will be there for Wrestlemania being in New York and as we move forward and start to announce things it will get bigger and bigger.

Main draws for Wrestlemania next year:

Rock has expressed his desire to be at Wrestlemania this year and to be the WWE Champion at some point, he guaranteed it. I guarantee Cena is going to be there, Brock Lesnar has been discussing his return being ar Wrestlemania.

I’m sure as we get closer to the event I’m going to get very excited about maybe throwing the trunks back on and getting back in there for Wrestlemania. It’s going to be all of the action, all of the main events, everything you would ever expect out of Wrestlemania.

The possibility of Steve Austin vs. Punk at Wrestlemania:

One thing I have learned in the WWE is never say never.

I’d be surprised if Austin ever threw the trunks on again. You get to a certain point in your life where your mind thinks you can do a lot of things that you maybe can’t. I’d be surprised but I’ve learned in this business to never say never so you never know.

I guarantee you CM Punk will be involved in Wrestlemania somehow.

That’s one of the interesting things, The Rock came out earlier this year and guaranteed that at some point in time he would be the WWE Champion and it was his mission. Well it’s not 1999 anymore, it’s not 2002, it’s a different year and there’s a different group of guys. CM Punk has had a lock on that thing for a while and it’s no cakewalk for The Rock. It’s not like he’s going to walk back in here and take over. It’s going to be interesting to see.

    Raw sucks now. 3 hours ruined it. They cant even write good stuff for 3 hours. This whole Cena and AJ thing is the reason I haven’t watched the past 2 weeks. Im really getting tired of the Cena character. Time for a change WWE.

    what needs to change is how wwe does wrestlemania because john cena vs the rock is enough.ever since wrestlemania 26 we've seen rematch after a rematch then all we know the 2nd rematch would be corny and stale and be the same but overdoing it.what is it with wwe doing this everytime??? MITB 2011 cena vs punk ***** stars perfect why does wwe think lightning would strike twice??? i thought wm 29 would be worth my money and my time make cena vs taker its original and would give big new 5 star match indications.cena vs taker in a i quit about a going all out match.just email this response to the creative.may not be what you like but try to do this once .i'll let you even take credit for this idea.shake up wrestlemania again!!!!
