The RockJBL Comments on The Rock at Wrestlemania

JBL posted on his twitter his thoughts on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and his role at Wrestlemania 29. "FYI I believe Rock will be at Mania, just saw an interesting news story and posted it at Layfieldreport.com. Hope you enjoy." It was announced that The Rock will fight the WWE Champion at Royal Rumble in Arizona, which would almost guarantee he will be in a championship match at Wrestlemania 29 at Metlife Stadium.

RVD Criticizes WWE over TNA

Rob Van Dam sat down with The Phoenix New Times last week to discuss the differences between TNA and WWE. Van Dam stated the following:

"In Total Nonstop Action, individual wrestlers have a lot more freedom to artistically express themselves versus WWE," Van Dam stated. "When we have our matches, they are known to be more athletic, more competitive in nature, and that's what wrestling fans really appreciate. And the fact there's more of a focus on wrestling in Total Nonstop Action over the other major company on TV. Whereas WWE  has been known to feature more of the 400-pound giants that aren't necessarily going to (perform) quite as impressively.”

Van Dam has criticized WWE in the past, but returned a few years ago for a one shot return at Royal Rumble.
