that hasnt been confirmed, under the wellness policy testing positive for marijuana will get him a fine, but not a mandatory suspension, so he could still go to WM.

It's been confirmed on every wrestling site on the net, this close to Mania, I'm not sure they'll do anything until after it though

In other news The Miz got engaged to Maryse last night, good on him

wrestling sites can only speculate, not confirm :lol:

undertaker returned at a house show in texas, which if you ask me, is bizarre, wwe have posted it on facebook as well, so if he's on raw theres no surprise :?

They are where we get most of our real news from and are rarely wrong if at all :|

Sorry, how many of them reported that taker was going to return weeks ago, just because he had the nerve to go to a hockey game? Dont make such ridiculous statements.

I read that he was still negotiating and wants Punk to beat him so can retire personally :?


Not sure what sites you use, but mine never said he was coming back until this morning

i use wrestling news source, which predictably posts news from multiple wrestling news sites and insider sources, and it was reported when taker attended a hockey game the night before raw in the same town that he was confirmed to appear the following night. look at the royal rumble rumours that were completely untrue as well. my point is, news sites are reliable but without any official confirmation should never be taken as totally accurate.

No spoilers, but raw was by far the best its been in months. The main event is already being called match of the year, with good reason, it was incredible.

Yeah, sad news.

Paul Bearer 1954-2013 Rest In Peace

One of the best managers in wrestling.

It's a real pity he's not going to be part of the storyline when The Undertaker retires.

I agree. I was hoping to see Taker vs Kane at Wrestlemania XXX with Paul Bearer involved somehow. If anyone should end the streak it should be Kane and that would put him back at the top of the card long enough for one more title run before he retires as well.
