“Honestly, no,” Ziggler admitted. “It’s anytime. [On] Monday, [when] everyone’s like ‘yay, we did so great yesterday, let’s talk about how great we did.’ Boom! Maybe that’s my time to strike, you never know.”

I watched “Good Morning America” this morning because John Cena was swinging by the set, and I noticed on the new title belt that side plates had been changed.

Where the Brahma Bull logos used to be now has on one side the “U Can’t See Me” logo and the other side now has the “Cenation” logo.

At this point win, lose, or draw, I just want him to cash in the damn thing already!

Eh, as long as they don't go back to the spinner belt. :smt102

I don't think I have ever hated a title belt as much as the spinner. Granted, Jeff Hardy's "Immortal" title belt is hands down the ugliest title of all time but we were never supposed to take that one seriously...were we? :smt017

So apparently the Rock was booked for RAW tonight and has thus far no-showed.

Speaking of The Rock: The Rock will be featured on the cover of WWE 2k14

Honestly, I don't know how I feel about that. Kinda sucks for the guys who are there all year long though.

See, this is one of those things I don't get. Why would it suck for them? If anything, this is a great thing for them because the Rock being on the cover increases the numbers that will sell (theoretically) which means everyone who is in the game gets richer via residuals.

Have Cena come out and blast him like Paul E did to Sabu back in the day.

A cover of a video game is supposed to be designed to sell video games, not to be a "good conduct" award.

I'm sure The Rock is on the cover to announce the fact that he's also a character in the game as well.

Or more ironically, how The Rock blasted Austin back in the day.

Man, it took me all day to watch Wrestlemania.

I enjoyed it, Punk/Undertaker was fucking amazing, and I think that was The Rock's best match since his return. It was strange how the aftermath was more about him than a triumphant Cena, it seemed like he was retiring.

The only real negatives were that Dolph didn't cash in, meaning my dreams of him ruling the world were false, and that Team Rhodes Scholars' match got bumped off. Couldn't we just have had that instead of P Diddy?

I actually almost mentioned that The Rock being on the cover would definitely sell more units in my post but I decided against it. You're right, from a financial viewpoint, it won't suck for the WWE or 2k Sports but from a personal viewpoint it has to be a huge disappointment. Being on the cover of a video game can be a big deal, especially in the world of sports. I couldn't tell you the roster for the past 2 years of WWE games but I can tell you who has been on the cover of the current series of WWE games dating back to the first few Smackdowns. If they are going to put The Rock on the cover, that's fine, but put 2 or 3 other superstars on there. Maybe 1 guy like Dolph Ziggler or Antonio Cesaro, somebody who could benefit from the extra exposure. Don't just put a guy like The Rock on the cover and call it a day because there are guys who are actually putting in an effort to get to the level that The Rock was at when he left the first time around. They actually need the exposure now.

It just show you how poorly planned WWE is right now. It's best stuff seems to come out by accident as opposed to being either successfully planned or as a organic outgrowth of said planning.

Vince should have made sure that Rock would be at RAW tonight (which I guess still may happen, and Rock is just taking his sweet time to get to the arena), and that there'd be a deal worked out for Rock to face either Taker or Lesnar at WM XXX next year. (Or have Rock and Lesnar down to face each other sooner, at least).

I don't think anyone benefits from the extra exposure. Booker T being on the cover of Shut Your Mouth or whatever didn't really make any difference with him, did it?
