Showrenity has a story covering The Rock's appearance at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour to promote his new TNT reality series, The Hero. During the tour he said the following about his return to WWE: "The storyline will be that starting this coming Monday [for RAW], I'm gonna go back, and it's going to be a big return. That will lead to, hopefully, what will be the biggest WrestleMania of all time at Giants Stadium. I will headline that show, with someone who I can't say right now. We’ve got an amazing four months lined up and planned out that will culminate in the biggest WrestleMania of all time. It's going to be a hell of a thing."
Leo Kruger is the man that worked as Jack Swagger's partner the last two nights at the Raw house shows.
Advertising Age is reporting that John Cena's cartoon likeness (hey, no jokes that his real likeness is like a cartoon already) will grace the front of four million limited edition boxes of Fruity and Cocoa Pebbles. Of course, the association with the cereal started last year when The Rock referred to Cena as Fruity Pebbles.

I actually purchased and read it and it's not as bad as you'd think it would be. Also, an MMA podcast I enjoy hosted by ESPN's Chad Dundas and the USA Today's Ben Fowlkees, "The Co-Main Event Podcast" will be doing a special on it some time this week.
