- With Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stating on record that he will be present at WrestleMania 29 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the official WWE website has published an article on their five theories for his participation at the event. One theory includes Johnson challenging The Undertaker’s undefeated streak.
“If a showdown for the WWE Title is out of the cards for The Brahma Bull, there’s no reason he can’t throw the gauntlet down at the feet of The Deadman and attempt to surmount what has become the greatest challenge in WrestleMania history,” the article states. “The Rock and The Phenom have history together (they were even Tag Team Champions for a hot minute), but a collision on The Greatest Stage of Them All would — to use an old expression — certainly put a lot of butts in the seats. Besides, after interring Triple H inside Hell in a Cell at WrestleMania 28, The Demon of Death Valley will be looking for a top-caliber challenger (if he’s looking for a challenger at all), and a high-profile opponent like The People’s Champion certainly fits the mold.”
Other theories including Johnson challenging for or defending the WWE Championship, challenging for the Tag Team Championship, a rematch against John Cena, and a “Rock Concert” with Bruce Springsteen.
– The Cauliflower Alley Club, a non-profit fraternal organization comprising both retired and active professional wrestlers and boxers in North America, has announced former WWE Women’s Champion Molly Holly as their 2013 Women’s Wrestling Honoree. She will receive the award at their next reunion event taking place April 15-17, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Past female grappling honorees include Darling Dagmar, Rockin’ Robin and Awesome Kong.
Now 35-years-old, Molly Holly has mostly kept away from the wrestling scene since parting ways with WWE in 2005. Sans a one-night return at WrestleMania XXV, her wrestling-related appearances have been limited to occasional guest referee roles and autograph signings.
