– Several weeks after World Wrestling Entertainment
reached out to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson to host an upcoming edition of Monday Night RAW, word has come out that The Rock actually turned down that offer. WWE originally wanted to bring him in for next week’s show to combat UFC’s first-ever live Monday night “Fight Night” show, but he turned that down and WWE went with Mike Tyson instead.
– Speaking of The Rock, there are still reports going around that WWE wants to bring him in to wrestle John Cena at WrestleMania.
- WWE contacted the USA Network over the weekend and requested 20 minutes of extra TV time past the normal 11:00PM for tonight’s RAW. No word yet if USA will grant the request
– WrestleMania 26 in March will once again feature a Money in the Bank ladder match with a #1 contender’s contract on the line. Raw superstar Kofi Kingston was the favorite to win, but those plans may have changed as his push has cooled down in recent weeks.
