It’s already been announced that The Rock will be making his in-ring return to WWE at Survivor Series for the first time since WrestleMania 20 – as he teams with his scheduled WrestleMania 28 opponent John Cena.
According to a reliable source who has provided us with several accurate scoops in previous months, Rock and Cena will be teaming together as part of a blockbuster main event match at Survivor Series that will see a “Team WWE” vs. “Team Anti-WWE.”
The anti-WWE team is not fully known at this time but will feature “future endeavored” superstars such as Kevin Nash, The Miz and R-Truth. WWE Chairman Vince McMahon has also been rumored to be a member of the Anti-WWE team.
Team WWE would feature The Rock, John Cena, Triple H and at least one more “mega star” – with The Undertaker and even “Stone Cold” Steve Austin discussed as possible participants.
While Steve Austin coming out of retirement for this match is a long shot, Austin’s involvement would take the star power and signifcance of this match to unprecedented heights.
Our source was quoted as saying, “The Rock and Cena feud has been featured on screen and on twitter. Stone Cold and Punk rivalry has been acknowledged as well, it would be a great fit they get everyone together.”
The source did say they feel if Austin was to be on this team with Punk at Survivor Series, the chances of him performing in a big singles match at WrestleMania 28 would e significantly. Austin has never ruled out getting in the ring again but wants things to be the right situation. The Undertaker would be the more likely option as most in the company are expecting him to come back sometime in the next couple months to get ready for WrestleMania.
Yesterday, we posted a story about Alberto Del Rio winning at Hell In A Cell being a “game day” decision. Apparently part of what potentially is causing the last minute changes is the uncertainty of where everyone fits in at Survivor Series. Originally, Cena being involved in the Survivor Series team match while being the champion was going to be the plan but now depending on who else is on the team they might go with having a separate WWE championship.
While there are blanks to fill, WWE wants to have them filled by Vengeance. We had an exclusive last month about Vince McMahon wanting this years Survivor Series to be a big deal and therefore these blanks need to be filled in by Vengeance so everyone knows what the game plan is for the next month leading into Survivor Series.
