News on Punk, Foley, Ryback, WrestleMania, and More
Oct 3, 2012 - by Michael Riba
- WWE reportedly has dropped the storyline idea of both AJ Lee and Booker T being incompetent General Managers, leading to Vince McMahon returning to bring in one General Manager for both shows.
- The idea of doing CM Punk vs. Mick Foley at WWE’s TLC pay-per-view has been brought up internally.
- As noted, Rey Mysterio vs. Sin Cara is a likely WrestleMania match. We also noted that Ryback vs. The Undertaker has been discussed a Streak vs. Streak build. Apparently this is a Vince McMahon idea. Other possible opponents for The Undertaker include Brock Lesnar and Triple H. This is unlikely but Punk vs. Taker was at least suggested internally.
- And lastly, Officials are actually trying harder than usual to keep WrestleMania plans for Brock Lesnar, The Rock, John Cena, CM Punk, Triple H and The Undertaker quiet because the idea is they will build the Royal Rumble up into a big show where a lot of different angles will begin or at least everything will fall into place then.
