WWE Superstar John Cena was involved in a three-car automobile accident earlier today in Philadelphia, according to WWE.com.
No immediate injuries were reported and Cena is scheduled to meet with WWE medical personnel when he arrives at the Wells Fargo Center for tonight’s live edition of Raw.
Cena -- who was traveling in a SUV, according to TMZ -- was reportedly rear ended by a Honda...Read more »
We’re three weeks away from the biggest wrestling show of the year, WrestleMania XVIII. Time for me to start talking about the show. Here’s some thoughts from last night’s build up to the event on Raw:
. Never have world title meant less at WrestleMania than this year. C.M. Punk may be the hottest star WWE has created in ages, and has a pretty long WWE championship reign going....Read more »
Last night’s Raw was built around the “John Cena Rap vs. The Rock Concert” as the two Wrestlemania opponents squared off in a battle of musical talents. The overall motif of the show made sense as Raw was in Cleveland, the home of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
I felt Raw was strong but it fell flat compared to the last few weeks, which haven been excellent. The WWE always revs up the product...Read more »

Last night we held our first ever live blog for Raw and you can see my rambling thoughts of the show in real-time by clicking here.
Let’s kick off with what the entire show was based around: The Rock and John Cena. Rocky delivered three recorded segments throughout the show from various parts of Boston. Keyword: recorded – that will come up a little later on so store that in the back of your...Read more »
11:11: Rock pulled a Cena and exited the ring after he said his peace. It was effective when Cena did it last week, but the Rock left Cena in the ring alone and he thrived. He mimicked Rock with bogus notes on his wrist and then hit hard with strong words driving home the point that he has to win at Wrestlemania. Even though Cena didn't dust off one of his raps as I had hoped, he came very close...Read more »
Last week I wrote about the 10 biggest matches in WrestleMania history. I noted then that while a few of them may have felt epic, they weren’t executed very well.
In fact, in its over the last 28 years, several WrestleMania main events have failed to deliver. In some cases, expectations were low to begin with because of the competitors involved (See: Sid Eudy.) In other cases, expectations...Read more »
As I noted earlier today, The Miz has gone from main eventer at last year's Wrestlemania to mid card wrestler in 2012.
He lost on Raw last night to John Cena. I understand the loss to Cena, who needs to look strong before facing the The Rock at Wrestlemania. It has gotten so bad for The Miz that he is not only getting buried on TV, but now during the commercial breaks.
Watch the video...Read more »
Last night’s Raw was all about one thing: The Rock and John Cena’s match at Wrestlemania.
Raw culminated with The Rock’s return and a face-to-face showdown. The Rock delivered a decent promo calling Cena “kung pow chicken.” Was the promo up to Rock’s usually high standards? No, but it was still entertaining. The promo wasn’t “electric” because The Rock was too busy explaining to the fans whey...Read more »
WWE is going out of its way to bill this year’s WrestleMania main event as the biggest match in wrestling history. Considering the legacies of the Rock and John Cena—and the fact that the Rock has not competed in a singles match in nine years, calling the bout “epic” is not an understatement.
But Cena-Rock has some stiff competition for the title of “biggest” WrestleMania match ever. Here’s...Read more »
