Johnson announced at Raw 1,000 that he would face whoever the WWE Champion is at the Royal Rumble. A match between Johnson and Punk, however, may not take place at the pay-per-view event. It was reported last week that WWE officials are contemplating a scenario where Punk drops the WWE Championship to John Cena at SummerSlam to set up a rematch between Cena and Johnson at Royal Rumble. Johnson would then defeat Cena at the Rumble and defend the title against Punk at WrestleMania XXIX.
Johnson also noted on Twitter that he "Spent time w/ some of our US Olympic Gold medalists last night" and that he was "So proud of them." He is currently in London, England filming scenes for the sixth installment of The Fast and the Furious franchise.
- Upon learning of developmental talent Ivelisse Vélez' release from WWE last week, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, who coached the Puerto Rican grappler on Tough Enough last year, tweeted, "I was very surprised to hear that."
Meanwhile, Vélez has changed her Twitter handle to @RealIvelisse. She has re-tweeted multiple fan messages in support of her.
