– John Cena vs. CM Punk to decide who will go on to face The Rock for the WWE title at WrestleMania 29 will headline next week’s RAW. My guess is they’re giving ‘Taker one more week to decide what he wants to do. It’s also possible ‘Taker simply wasn’t available for tonight’s RAW and they’re holding his return off until next week while hyping a huge match in the process. The plan is for The Undertaker vs. CM Punk if ‘Taker agrees to a match. As of now, John Cena vs. The Rock is the scheduled WrestleMania 29 main event.
– The following matches were taped prior to RAW for this week’s WWE Saturday Morning Slam telecast:
* Daniel Bryan vs. Wade Barrett
* AJ Lee vs. Natalya
WWE Superstars and Main Event will likely be taped at this week’s WWE SmackDown tapings. No word on why they didn’t tape Superstars at RAW like they normally do.
