- 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 28th (the night after the Royal Rumble) and February 18th. The Rock will also be appearing at the January 21st 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.
– Former WCW World champion Lex Luger is writing an autobiography titled “Wrestling with the Devil: The True Story of a World Champion Professional Wrestler – His Reign, Ruin, and Redemption.” The book is tentatively scheduled for an April 2013 release.
