— Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stated during today’s WrestleMania XXIX press conference at New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium that he will be appearing at the 2013 event.
“The Great One” subsequently wrote on Twitter, “Met Life Stadium. Home of Wrestlemania 29. 2013. #MetLifeWillGetRocked.”
It will be the third consecutive WrestleMania appearance for Johnson, who guest-hosted WrestleMania XXVII and will headline WrestleMania XXVIII.
— “The Sports Guy” Bill Simmons, who had CM Punk on his popular podcast last summer, takes aim at Triple H in his latest mailbag column for ESPN affiliated website Grantland.com.
When asked if the recent surge of New York Knicks player Jeremy Lin is the NBA’s equivalent of CM Punk last summer, he instead sounds off on the self-proclaimed “King of Kings.”
“Does this mean (Knicks star Carmelo Anthony) is going to be Triple H — the egotistical, overrated star who couldn’t handle that something good was happening without him, so he interjected himself into the storyline and ended up throwing a wet blanket on all the momentum?” Simmons writes.
“I sure hope not.”
