WHAT TO EXPECT FROM ROCK-CENA 2, THE LONG ROAD TO QATAR, SEE CHRIS JERICHO'S NEW TV SHOW A WEEK EARLY AND MORE

By Dave Scherer on 2013-02-20 13:15:30

CM Punk noted on his Twitter account that the flight to Qatar for tomorrow's show was 14 hours long.  There is another reason I could never be a wrestler.   4 hours in a plane is too long for me.

The Rock did an interview with Moviefone.com to promote "Snitch".  In it, he talked about working with the great Michael K. Williams (who played the awesome Omar Little on "The Wire" and plays Chalky White on "Boardwalk Empire").  About working with John Cena at WrestleMania 29 he said, "We all have a plan. The idea of doing a 'Rock vs. John Cena Part 2' is intriguing and exciting to a lot of fans. And it's intriguing and exciting to us too! So now the key is how do we execute the build-up? How do we present situations that are intriguing and entertaining to fans every week?  WrestleMania in New York at Giants Stadium is already sold out. It's going to be the biggest of all time, it's why I came back. To be honest, it was why I went back three years ago; this has been a very long strategic three-year plan with all of us involved, that's going to culminate at WrestleMania. There is no greater opponent right now for me than John, and I look forward to it."  You can read the whole interview by clicking here.
