There had been some concern that The Rock's early-2013 movie schedule
would limit his WWE television appearances during WrestleMania season,
but he's now locked in for at least 3 shows in the weeks following the
Royal Rumble. As previously reported, The Rock is being advertised
for WWE RAW on January 21st (the night after the Royal Rumble) and
February 18th. The Rock will also be appearing at the January 28th RAW
taping from Las Vegas, Nevada.
With The Rock's movie "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" hitting theaters on March
29, 2013, there is talk of WWE working with Paramount Pictures to cross
promote the film with WrestleMania.
Based on statistics compiled by Hashtagbattle.com, Daniel Bryan actually won the RAW Active poll to determine who would wrestle CM Punk in the main event of the show. With less than 1,000 votes cast, #WWEBryan had 585 tweets, while #WWEKane had 408 tweets. Bryan tweeted on Tuesday:
"Hmmm... I smell corruption! "This week: #WWEBryan 585 - 408 #WWEKane http://t.co/lYlOERm5 via @hashtagbattle"
