@Tasuki You don't have to be in WWE to be in the hall of fame. They inducted: Antonio Inoki, and Abdullah the butcher(i think he was but hes more known for his run in Japan)

From what i heard Sting is getting WWE contract,not sure if that includes a HoF entry too.

@Eli-Ash: THey always have a celebrate entry in the HoF as well that I just remember like Donald Trump, Drew Carrey, Pete Rose etc, but I honestly dont see Sting getting in on that. As for Antonio Inoki he was put while its true that he wasn't in WWE he is very good friends with Vince and have done business with him in the past between WWE and NJPW. As for Abdullah he was in WCW for awhile so that kinda counts since all WCW rights went to WWE after the buyout.

As for Sting he owns the rights which is being used in TNA so unless he quits or gets fired by TNA he can't be in the WWE HoF. Besides these rumors pop up every time about this year about Sting coming to the WWE or being put in the HoF. Heck I remember last year a rumor going around that Sting was going to fight Undertaker at WM. I mean dont get me wrong I would love to see Sting in the WWE but I dont thing it will happend. For one thing Sting himself said that he wont go to the WWE cause he doesn't think the writers and such will handle the Sting character correctly which is the big reason he's not been in the WWE.

^The WWE HoF isn't exclusively for those who've been with WWE/WWF, but it's unlikely to occur (and I agree Sting won't be inducted any time soon). Constant rumors swirl about Sting vs. Undertaker at WM, but I don't think it's likely to happen (at least not this year).

Brock vs. Taker is the most likely scenario right now, but there's also been some talk about Daniel Bryan vs. Taker as the possible WM matchup.

@Tasuki Sting was just written off TNA tv on the genesis event that was taped a week ago. So its at least confirmed that hes done with TNA.

Yeah I have been hearing that Sting did in fact leave TNA and there are rumors that he is in talks with WWE. Of course if these are true (and man do I hope they are) it's probably to late for a Taker/Sting match at WM, but still an appearance by him at WM. OMG!!!!

Well, CM Punk has quit, apparently telling Vince "he's going home". He's been pulled from all future live events, doesn't look like his contract is being renewed or even fulfilling it till it officially ends in July.

If true, I feel very disappointed, I was looking forward to seeing Punk at a WWE house show in Birmingham in May this year. But it looks like he won't be there. But in all honesty maybe leaving is the best thing for Punk, he really seems to have lost that energy and passion that he's shown before. He's clearly not enjoying himself again and maybe a big longer break will help him rekindle that fire. It's going to suck having Punk not being at the WWE though, he's one of the main reasons I watch today.

I can't say I'm shocked, he's been pretty vocal about part-timers coming in and taking the spots of guys that work 365 days a year and I think Batista coming in and winning the RR is the straw that broke the camel's back. Plus, he's pretty much been stuck in the midcard since he lost to The Rock at last year's RR. I just think its a matter of being frustrated with how he's being used, and the fact that it seems like part-timers are just pushing down the current roster, and pretty much given what they want whenever they walk through the door.

I'll still watch Raw and Smackdown on Hulu, but not having Punk on the show will suck for me since he was one of the reasons why I watched. Orton and Cena have gotten stale, and at this point, the Wyatt Family, Daniel Bryan, The Shield, and a few others are the reason why I keep watching. WWE does still have some cool stuff going on, but its amazing how things have gone over the last few days.

I did not watch the Royal Rumble, but I heard the Philly crowd turned very hostile when Batista won it, and now CM Punk is going home. This is not good for the WWE, given most of these part timers will likely leave after Mania ends. But maybe there is some silver living to Punk leaving. Maybe him being gone will finally give the WWE the proper incentive to push Bryan and some of the other younger stars Post-Mania. And at least HHH vs Bryan makes sense for Mania, although that match should have have happened at Survivor Series when things when the feud between Bryan and the Authority was still hot. Now, it will just seem like “Eh, CM Punk is gone, so Daniel Bryan will work for HHH's Mania opponent. They have some history with each other.”

Although, I wonder where CM Punk will go. TNA is in shambles right now, and ROH is having its share of problems. He's would be one of the hottest current stars right now, but there's really nowhere he can go that can take advantage of that.

Of course, this could all be part of a storyline. But I really wonder about that....

Supposibly Punk was planning to take a break on July but he told Vince that he was leaving before Raw. @Caryslan Yea you got it right i heard Bryan now will probably be wrestling Triple H at mania.

Punk isn't leaving the company hes just taking a break. If he was do i would love to see him in New Japan.

Aw :( Punk is one of my absolute favorites! It sucks he's leaving so sudden, but he constantly talked about leaving on his own terms. Apparently this is just a big break though? If so good, or else its rioting time at those part timers.

Punk's probably going to Japan or something if he leaves. Pretty sure he's talked about that before.
well.
maybe i'll get the chance to catch him around if he's coming home! :D

Whether it's him taking a break or not is still up in the air — but he's still under contract until around July or so, so even if he decides he's not coming back, he won't be able to appear anywhere else till around the fall (assuming that Vince doesn't let him out of the contract).

But yeah, he's been very dissatisfied lately with the company, the booking, etc. And it's showed in his recent matches and appearances, as there's been something "off" with him for a while. Apparently, this developed over the past few days; first he gave an interview on Thursday where he again expressed his frustrations, then he asked to be taken off the weekend house shows (while showing up to watch the UFC fight on Saturday), worked the Rumble and then told Vince (either late Sunday or early Monday) that he was going home. Parts of RAW were apparently re-written (also explaining why no Kane on Monday, since the plan was to work towards a Punk vs. Kane match), including transitioning to the groundwork for a potential Bryan vs. HHH 'Mania match (the previous potential plan was Punk vs. HHH at 'Mania).

Very interesting week for WWE, for sure.

@Retro_on_theGo Punk was planning to go to New Japan in 05 but when WWE offer him a developmental deal that never happen.

DGUSA/Evolve booker Gabe mention CM Punk and the possibility of him working on 1 of his shows but he doubts thats gonna happen.

I'm pretty much forcing myself to watch WWE at this point and that is mainly for Punk and Bryan. With out Punk that is just more of Raw I'm going to end up fast forwarding...

If the HHH and Bryan match happens and Bryan doesn't win then I'm taking my ball and going home too.

I'm so freaking sick of Cena and Orton I could scream. And don't get me started with the guys like Batista that "look" the part but can't wrestle.

So what are the odds of mania being a triple threat with Bryan included at this point? I know WWE is incredibly stupid, but I want to give them the benefit of the doubt to not have a boo fest for Mania of all paper's main events.

I honestly would not be surprised if they went with a triple threat (and that is a rumor making the rounds right now). If nothing else, the WM main event has (almost always) been one that Vince decrees has a "send the fans home happy" outcome, typically with the face coming out on top — and I honestly can't imagine there being that "feel good" moment being created by having Batista beat Orton ...

I have been wondering however (assuming they stick with Orton-Batista) if they build to the classic "double turn" (a la Bret Hart vs. Austin), and have Orton and Batista swap roles, which with good enough booking (HA!) could work ...

@Retro_on_theGo the current angle with Bryan was all planned to start post wrestlemania. but because of the hijacking in the rumble they decided to speed things up.

Not sure if they would add him to the main event but anything can happen i guess.

so whenever H and Stephanie come out at the beginning of a show and they do their little combined name-card thing at the bottom of the screen, i know the WWE logo is supposed to read as 'WWE' in text, but it doesn't come across that way — i swear the first time i actually looked at it, I read 'chief operations officer / Triple H / principal owner of / Stephanie McMahon' and I couldn't stop giggling for a good five minutes.

also, H vs. Bryan sounds like a damn good Wrestlemania match. I would pay to watch that match.
