The Rock to be in Wrestlemania main event?: The Rock claimed he will be in the closing match at this year’s Wrestlemania during a recent interview with the ShowRenity.com website. “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,” says the Rock. “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.” ___________________________________________________________ Former TNA stars returning: Former TNA stars Jerry Lynn and Petey Williams are returning for a special set of TV tapings that will be used to fill international programming commitments, now that the company have dropped some PPVs.
