After the closing segment on this week's WWE Raw (highlights here) with John Cena and The Rock do you think Cena could finally be turning heel?

Kendra Bunyon and Jesse Sherwood have an outstanding debate about this topic now online here at I recommend everyone check that out before reading the rest of this answer. In that article, while playing devil's advocate to Jesse, Kendra brought up a great point highlighted by Mick Foley. Can Cena turn heel and still be as effective as he is with charities like the Make-A-Wish Foundation? Set aside his ability to draw and move merch for WWE and consider the effect outside of WWE. That's something that shouldn't be taken lightly and I'm sure a sticking point for any plan that would see a full heel turn for John Cena. I, like Kendra, have always seen a huge benefit in turning Cena heel but this new perspective is certainly worth considering. I have long said I'll "believe it when I see it" in regards to whether or not it will happen but I do agree with Jesse that it could open up Cena to an entire different set of fans. I do want to send a message to all the haters in that the closing segment of this week's WWE Raw was well done. I only wish Flair would have been healthy enough to take part because I thought it came off as realistic and captivating. This was crucial after last week's lackluster show.

Do you think Jim Ross should commentate at this year's Wrestlemania?

If it were up to me Jim Ross would still be the lead play-by-play man for WWE and on television as much as possible. I am for any situation that puts JR back where he belongs - with the headset on announce. This isn't a dig at Michael Cole either - Cole stepped into an impossible situation and has improved. However, I'm all for contributions by the best play-by-play man in the history of the wrestling business.

Is it just me or does this seem to be the weakest Wrestlemania lineup in the last decade?

It's just you because I certainly don't feel the Wrestlemania 29 is weak. Many fans, me included, are against re-matching Triple H and Brock Lesnar and The Rock and John Cena at Wrestlemania but that doesn't mean they aren't two top drawing matches. Remember, last year's show (headlined by Cena vs. Rock), drew the biggest pay-per-view buyrate in the company's history. The lineup is strong although predictable but WWE can always alter how predictable in their booking. This week's Raw was a tremendous step in the right direction heading into Wrestlemania 29.

Which match would you have close the show at Wrestlemania 29?

The three main events for Wrestlemania 29 are Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H, Undertaker vs. CM Punk and John Cena vs. The Rock. I have a hard time seeing any situation that doesn't have Cena and Rock go last unless they decide to end the streak or end the career of Triple H.
