The WWE Champion The Rock speaks his mind on WrestleMania, NEXT!
IF YOU SMELLLL...The Rock makes his way out to a great ovation from the D.C. crowd, and takes it all in, as we hear from Cole about how "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" top the box offices worldwide.
Connection. Rock's connection with the People is the only reason he is standing in the ring right now. He tells Cena that this Sunday, it's not about redemption, but about the will of the People. The will of the people is not for Cena's redemption, but for the Rock to take his Size 15 and curb-stomp Cena's monkey ass at WrestleMania. "Rocky" chants ring loud. The will of the People is bigger than anything Cena can imagine. If possible, the people could will Rocky right into the White House, we could go from Barack to The Rock. He asks if he can count on the people's vote, and they respond with a loud "Yes!" He promises that at his inauguration, his speech will start with the immortal "FINALLY...THE ROCK HAS COME BACK TO WASHINGTON D.C.!"
Rock mentions how Cena came out and said the same things he said last year. What happened last year? Cena got Rock Bottomed. It doesn't change this year. There's no redemption, and no torch will be passed. Rock will take that torch, roll it up into a big fireball, Duraflame that sumbitch and stick it straight up Cena's candy-ass. Cena looks for redemption, but the Rock has already found what's he come for, and Cena's time won't be now, it's never. Cena will fall to the Rock and the Millions...AND MILLIONS...of the Rock's fans and he won't be able to deny the will of the People, and he won't beat the Rock. IF YOU SMELLLL...classic People's Eyebrow...WHAT THE ROCK IS COOKING!

The "Just For Men" flashback shows Fandango ambushing Jericho following the ambush by Big E. Langston last Friday on SmackDown.
Non-Title Match: US Champion Antonio Cesaro vs. Chris Jericho
Cesaro gets the jobber entrance. SHOCKER!
Lock-up in the center of the ring. Cesaro back Jericho up and slaps him. Jericho with the headlock takeover. Cesaro fights out and gets a headlock of his own, and really cinches it in. Cesaro with a shoulder block for a quick two count. Jericho with chops, ANtonio catches him and drives him into the corner. Jericho comes back with a dropkick and some more knife-edge chops in the corner. Big suplex by Jericho and a kick gets a two count. Cesaro takes him down and locks in a modified sleeper. Jericho fights out and tosses Cesaro to the apron. Cesaro with a STIFF headbutt to Jericho's eye. Cesaro up top, but Jericho crotches him on the ropes, heads up to hit a few rights, and hits a nice Frankensteiner for a near fall. Suddenly, Fandango's music hits (You think Jericho would see the stage being set up and expect this) and he and his dancing diva come out. Jericho watches in disbelief as we go to a mid-match break...
Back from commercial, Cesaro has Jericho in a neck vice. We see during the break that Jericho only got a "2" from Fandango for the dropkick. I give Fandango a "0" on the I-Give-A-Rat's-Ass meter.

Jericho back to the Walls and cinches in the Liontamer for the tap out.
Winner: Chris Jericho
Post-match, Fandango beats down Jericho and assaults him. "You Can't Wrestle" chants ringing rather loudly in the D.C. crowd as Fandango drops a pair of top-rope leg drops to Jericho and reminds him what his name is.
Still to come, Taker plans to VERBALLY eviscerate CM Punk. Glad someone finally informed Cole about his little flub earlier. Just another drop in the near-full bucket, Cole...
We hear from some nutty fans on TOUT! about their thoughts on the Rock-Cena match. Doesn't this just reinforce the stereotype about how we wrestling fans are seen as absolute dorks?
