– As noted before, The Rock is scheduled for the April 2nd RAW Supershow – the day after WrestleMania 28. This isn’t confirmed but it’s believed that Rock will start a build for SummerSlam that night, schedule permitting. The idea all along has been for The Rock to do more than one big pay-per-view in 2012.

– WWE has officially released their new “DiBiase Posse” t-shirt for Ted DiBiase.

– It was reported months back that WWE was in the process of re-doing some of their office space and grouping different departments with each other. Joey Styles, head of WWE’s website, recently confirmed those reports when a fan asked him on Twitter if he works from home. Styles replied:

“I work in the newly renovated office space for TV Creative, Magazine and .com at WWE HQ.”

“Mick Foley’s WrestleMania Weekend Raffle” has officially launched at this link. The raffle ends at 11am EST. Fans can buy raffle tickets for $2 each and there is a 5-ticket minimum. Proceeds from the raffle go to the RAINN organization. The winner and a guest will receive the following:

* 2 tickets to the 2012 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony
* 2 Club Level seats for WrestleMania 28
* 2 tickets to RAW on April 2nd
* Breakfast with Mick Foley
* Lunch with Eve Torres and three other WWE Divas
* 3 nights lodging at the Intercontinental hotel in downtown Miami
* Travel allowance of $3,000 to put towards airfare
* $500 to put towards other expenses

– The Rock announced on Twitter that Journey 2 is officially Warner Bros.’ 2nd biggest opening of all-time in China.

– United States Champion Jack Swagger noted on Twitter that WWE will be coming to Brazil this coming May with shows in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.

– We noted a few weeks back that Chyna was working on a new adult film that would parody WWE. TMZ has new details on Chyna’s Royal Rumble-inspired movie that just finished filming. Chyna will perform with 9 males that all look like famous wrestlers including The Iron Sheik, John Cena, Steve Austin, Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, her ex-boyfriend Triple H and others. The Cena impersonator actually appears with one of the old school replica WWF title belts. TMZ contacted WWE for comments but they did not return the calls.

WWE.com has published a pseudo-shoot interview with Eve Torres regarding her abrupt kissing session with John Cena in front of Zack Ryder on Monday’s Raw SuperShow as well as the backlash on Twitter.

“I never intended for anything bad to happen to Zack,” Torres said. “How this turned out is not how I intended. I acted in the moment – we all make mistakes. I can’t really say I’m sorry, but isn’t it better to be honest than to lead Zack on?”

Torres received an avalanche of angry messages on Twitter, many of which are “not suitable for publishing on WWE.com.”

“It’s been a hard adjustment for me, reading my Twitter timeline,” she said. “But, people need to realize that there’s more than one side to people. I always try to put my best foot forward both inside and outside the ring. But I have emotions, and that goes for anyone – sometimes emotions just take over.”

Torres also stresses that she’s “only human.”
