– WWE.com now lists Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a member of the Raw roster.

— Tyler Reks, who largely appears on NXT, was asked to give his thoughts on his current position in WWE.

“I’d always like to be higher on the card,” he tweeted. “But where I am now gives me an opportunity to hone in my character and skills.”

Fan Mosaics has announced they are partnering with WWE to release a special line merchandise for WrestleMania 28. Fans can upload their photos to the Fan Mosaics website for inclusion in the WrestleMania Fan Mosaic. “It allows fans to be part of the big event in a unique way, taking them beyond the role of spectator by participating in and owning a special, personalized piece of WWE memorabilia.”

– Evan Bourne will be cleared to return to WWE this Saturday, March 17th. He is finishing up his 60-day suspension for violating the company Wellness policy for a second time. Bourne will be released from WWE if he fails another drug test.

– According to WWE video game publisher THQ, the “WWE Brawl” video game that is being developed has been put on hold and will not be released this year. THQ will be focusing their efforts on completing the WWE ’13 game, which is due out this fall.

– The Rock’s upcoming movie project “Empire State” has added actress Emma Roberts to its cast, according to Variety.com. The Rock will play a detective in the film, which is scheduled to shoot after Rock films “Pain and Gain” starting in April.

– On Monday morning, WWE’s Board of Directors announced that WrestleMania 28 will feature a “Team Laurinaitis vs. Team Long” 12-man tag match – with the winning GM getting control of both brands. Participants for both teams will be announced in the coming weeks, but here are the rumored participants for the two teams:

Team Laurinatis: Dolph Ziggler, Jack Swagger, David Otunga, Christian, Mark Henry & Alberto Del Rio

Team Long: Kofi Kingston, R-Truth, Ezekiel Jackson, Santino, Great Khali & One more participant.

The final participant of Team Long could be Evan Bourne or Rey Mysterio (if he’s medically cleared to return).

Dolph Ziggler appeared on sportstalkNETWORK to discuss tonight’s Raw SuperShow in Cleveland, hosting WWE Download, Vickie Guerrero, The Rock returning to WWE and more. Highlights are as follows:

Being a WWE Superstar: “I’m never truly satisfied with anything and I never will be and that’s why I’ve been lucky to get this far but it is everything and even more… our roster and even guys not even on the main roster work so hard tirelessly to put on a great show for the fans and it never ends and there’s no off-season.”

If there is competitive rivalry between he and The Miz since they both hail from Ohio: “Absolutely and we love it! We’re buddies but we also bust each others chops and we push each other as much as we can. We both want to be ‘the next guy’.”

Backstage resentment of The Rock being in the main event at WrestleMania XXVIII: “I’m going to take advantage of that one way or the other and get some eyes on us that we normally wouldn’t have – we’re going to stretch out to different genres and different age groups of people who have seen The Rock in the movies or Disney and they don’t know what it’s like to see a WWE show and their going to see the greatest show and the biggest WrestleMania of all time. So I see that as a positive – as an opportunity – The Rock is coming back and give us somewhat of a rub and more eyes are going to see me steal the show at WrestleMania in Miami on April 1st.”
