-- As noted earlier here on the website, WWE Champion Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will be off television for the next few weeks as he is in Panama right now filming his new reality show for TNT called "The Hero." Johnson is hosting and producing the new series that will debut this summer. Shows he is booked for include 3/4 in Buffalo (RAW), 3/25 in Philadelphia (RAW), 4/1 in Washington, D.C. (RAW) and 4/7 in New Jersey (WrestleMania 29). He will also appear on RAW the following night on 4/8 in New Jersey in what will be his final appearance for a while as he will head to Hungary and Croatia to begin filming the new "Hercules" movie.

-- It should be noted that The Rock is being advertised for the Extreme Rules PPV on 5/19 in St. Louis, Missouri. This is rather surprising as Rock was only expected to make one appearance for WWE the night after WrestleMania 29 in New Jersey as he will be heading overseas to film the new "Hercules" movie. Keep in mind the advertising can easily change and always does.

-- Brock Lesnar is scheduled to appear on WWE RAW next week on 2/25 in Dallas, Texas. Other dates Lesnar is scheduled for includes 3/11 in Indianapolis (RAW), 3/18 in Pittsburgh (RAW), 4/1 in Washington, D.C. (RAW) and 4/8 in New Jersey (RAW the night after Wrestlemania 29). While not official yet, he will be part of WrestleMania on 4/7 in New Jersey. Triple H is likely to appear on RAW next week as well to set up a rematch with Brock at WrestleMania 29.

Interesting to note how much WWE is keeping both Brock and Rock away from each other in terms of booking. The only shows the two will both be on includes 4/1 in Washington, D.C. and 4/8 in New Jersey. Paul Heyman dropped a hint about having an "opponent in mind" for The Rock at WrestleMania 30 leading to early speculation of The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar at the event in 2014 at the Superdome. That is the current plan as we've been reporting.
