Nothing means anything anymore. Only when somebody seriously gets hurt do you show the X. I agree with you completely.

Word is Punk is scheduled to be in the final match at Mania.

Rocky might not be winning at the Rumble after all. I have no interest in a triple threat though.


This would jive with the talk that Wrestlemania is Punk's final match.

maybe it's only when the Refs throw up the X? I thought that part was pretty stupid, but it made sense for Punk to come down... was happy to hear he may finally main event a Wrestle Mania, the guy deserves it & Mania needs a strong match to close the show.

I heard that he wants to retire in a few years but haven't heard that he's retiring this early. Thought he would hang around to wait for Austin too. That match seems to be inevitable at this point.

Probally won't happen this year though due to all of the star power they already have.

I keep coming back to that conclusion as well. The WWE is way too thin for Punk to call it in just a few months. He's definitely made no secret that he wants to go out in his prime, Barry Sanders style.

Austin will never wrestle again.

WWE has "messed" with the "X" in matches before for example I remember them using it a few years ago when Mysterio was slammed into the ring post when he was strapped to a back board, all the refs came out to help and a few threw up the X. He wasn't really injured from the spot but they were using it to write him off the show for a while anyway. More recently, it was used on Jericho at the elimination chamber, and Cena used it when Zach Ryder was wheeled off the stage by Kane. All parts of story lines without a legit injury.

It is a nod to the smarks as they try and keep everyone guessing a little bit. It isn't as if the people in the back aren't aware of these things and will get confused when the gesture is used as part of a story line, nor has it ever been off limits, I guess most people just haven't noticed it before.

Austin was quoted the other day as being "100% cleared to wrestle" and facing Punk was at the top of his list. I think the match should be saved fror WM 30.

Really? I thought he was still on a bum knee from surgery

I always thought it was the neck injury that forced him into retirement.

he's going to always be banged up due to wear and tear on his body, but he's prob healed up enough to wrestle a match or two

It was, but it's healed enough for him to be okay with one more match. His knee is heeled now too. He says he's 100% cleared to wrestle now. All signs are pointing to him waiting to WM 30 though.

Cena v Taker and Punk v Austin at WM 30. I think the biggest issue that could derail that would be Lesnar and Rock sticking around. At some point this becomes a numbers game.
