Considering the attack after Raw's tag title match, does WWE have plans to put Kane back in the tag division or was this just a random attack?

As noted on my Twitter account, I felt Kane's attack was very random. While I do not know the creative plans for Kane at Wrestlemania, his post-match beat down on Monday's Raw Supershow seemed like a way to get him on television. For more on Kane, read the Smackdown taping results at this link.

With the announcement that Teddy Long will be the GM on Raw next week and John Laurinaitis will be the Smackdown GM, what are the chances that Long and Laurinaitis face-off at Wrestlemania with the
winner becoming GM of both Raw and Smackdown?

As soon as things got physical on Monday's WWE Raw Supershow when Long shoved Laurinaitis, I thought to myself, "not again." Remember last year's Wrestlemania match between Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler? My hope is WWE uses the Long/Laurinaitis feud to do a "Bragging Rights" type match with workers representing both Long and Laurinaitis. I am never for non-wrestlers getting in the ring on pay-per-view but especially not at Wrestlemania.

What is WWE's goal with John Cena and The Rock in terms of who is the babyface and who is the heel?

Many people had assumed Wrestlemania was going to be the point when John Cena turned heel, however, that isn't the case. The last I heard company officials want the audience split 50/50 for the match which is why they gave Cena free reign Monday night to say whatever he wanted to generate a pop. For those that missed it, Cena delivered and accomplished the goal.

I'm unbelievably excited for Wrestlemania this year, but it's got me wondering if maybe there is too much going on. With The Rock/Cena, Triple H/Undertaker, Sheamus/Daniel Bryan and Chris Jericho/CM Punk already set to bring down the house… What can we expect, if anything, from people like Randy Orton, The Miz, and The Big Show?

The Wrestlemania XXVIII lineup is very strong but I can confirm all but The Miz will definitely have matches at the pay-per-view. It's a good possibility The Miz is on the card but since I'm not aware of the creative plans for him, I don't want to speculate. Given last year's disappointing Wrestlemania, this year's loaded card is very refreshing and I don't think there can be "too much" going on.
