-- It was confirmed on RAW that The Shield will face The Big Show, Randy Orton and Sheamus at WrestleMania 29. With all the "Will Randy Orton and Sheamus be able to coexist with The Big Show?" hype going into the match, this adds fuel to the rumors that Randy Orton will be turning heel at WrestleMania 29. We shall see.

-- As announced here on the website and on RAW this week, The Rock is scheduled to appear on this week's WWE SmackDown broadcast. As of last word, John Cena was also expected to appear on the show.

-- Dusty Rhodes was the person who replaced Ric Flair on RAW this week. Rhodes is backstage at the TV tapings on a weekly basis, working on the creative team. Arn Anderson is also backstage working as a producer/agent but Rhodes is the better talker so they went with him instead.
