    The Rock is not in attendance tonight, according to sources.

    Looks like Vince is pulling out all the stops to try to hype Wrestlemania this year. Maybe he realizes that the Raw in its current PG format freaking sucks.

    What's the deal between JBL and Stone Cold?

    I was a HUGE fan a decade ago. With the Rock and Stone Cold coming back, I admit...I'm hooked again. The Stone Cold Stunner was always one of my favorite finish moves. Of coures the Rock Bottom and People's Elbow are great.

    Anyone get a count on the beers? I know he only drinks like a sip from each (spillage, foaming, smashing them together, not getting it in his mouth, not even drinking), but I'm pretty sure he polished off a case of Stones in roughly 6 minutes.

    JBL was going to "sign the contract" to be a special guest referee for a match between Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler. Stone Cold interrupted that before the contract ever made it into JBLs hands.

    It was a pretty fun segment all the way around. Cole had me mentioning that I wouldn't mind giving him a swift, low kick. JBL is a blast. And then the man.

    Had to be past a dozen, as near as I could tell.

    It's interesting....Michael Cole used to be scrawny.....he's obviously done some heavy lifting since he'll actually be in a match coming up.

    Yeah, I saw that but I didn't know if there was a backstory on JBL and Austin. I haven't watched in years.

    not really. They haven't been around for years.

    JBL was just the wrong Texan in the wrong place at the wrong time. You know that Stone Cold will take out anybody, just because they're there.

    I'm impressed with the beer tosses. Whoever is throwing them has been on the money no matter where Stone Cold has been.

    Recipe for WWE right now seems to be "Let aging superstars come back, run their most loved routines for 20 minutes, profit."

    No doubt. Obviously, they've decided that the current roster lacks the starpower or whatever to get the job done. Seems to me that it means one of two things:

    1) They're selling out completely for a short-term Wrestlemania buy. or

    2) They're bringing in all of the aging guys to show the young ones how it's done, and push them to step up their game, and do it right now.

    Not sure which one, but it almost has to be one of those options.

    Anyone just see that King Sheamus dude snap his ankle? Obviously wasn't a staged injury. Was knocked out of the ring and landed awkwardly...could hear the snap. He was counted out and couldn't even put weight on it.

    And then made a match for next week. It was staged.

    I'm hoping not (but it looked bad). That guy is a bad, bad man. He and Daniel Bryan could tear the house down.

    Seemed to me like a quick improvisation on their part, but I guess we'll see. Looked like a real injury.

    He'll probably be "medically uncleared" next week, and they'll drag it on until Wrestlemania. Well, after he jumps Daniel Bryan from behind.
