WWE United States Title Match (Pre-show) The Miz vs. Antonio Cesaro ___________________________________________________________ News from the Rumble fan fest: Ard Ocal has been on the ground at the Royal Rumble Fan Fest and issued the following highlights from the DX Q&A panel… * Shawn Michaels said the 4 years away from wrestling (98-02) were the greatest years of his life personally, despite loving the business. * Triple H said they will likely be doing more panels like this one at future events. * Road Dogg says other than his brothers being in WCW at the time, he couldn’t have cared less about WCW. * The Voodoo Kin Mafia in TNA was brought up and Road Dogg said: “Russo was writing and we got paid weekly. Bad time in my life, bro!” * Regarding The Kliq in the WWE Hall of Fame, Triple H said: “never say never. Maybe” * They loosely poked fun at Chyna and Waltman but then Waltman puts her over: “there will never be another one like her.” Ocal also spoke with Ryback, who said he wants to end Kane’s Royal Rumble record for the most eliminations: ___________________________________________________________ How close was Lesnar to re-signing with UFC?: UFC President Dana White revealed how close Brock Lesnar was to re-signing with the company in 2012, after his WWE return. During a press scrum following last night’s UFC On FOX he revealed plans for a superfight between Lesnar and Fedor Emelianenko. “Remember when I met with Lesnar and said it didn’t go well? It actually went well,” said White. “Brock wanted to fight Fedor. Then (Fedor’s) dad died, and he was done… After his dad died and he said he was done or whatever, Brock said, ‘I’m done, too.’” White also suggested that Lesnar will not sign on for another year with WWE after Wrestlemania: “From what I understand, he is absolutely, positive made the decision not to fight ever again…He’s going to do his stint in the WWE and then go away.He’s got a big farm up in Canada. He loves to farm and he loves to be with his family out in the middle of nowhere.” ___________________________________________________________ The King wants back in the ring?: WWE Hall of Famer said he’d like to get back in the ring, during a recent interview with TMZ…
