The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32, Sting’s birthday, more on WWE casting for WrestleMania

– During Monday’s Raw when they showed the taped sitdown interview with Brock Lesnar they made a point to have Brock mention that he sent The Rock to Hollywood in 2002. Technically, that is not true since Rock came back a few months later as a heel to feud with Hulk Hogan but it was basically the end of Rock’s full-time WWE career.

Anyway, the reason that Rock was mentioned, besides putting over Brock as an unstoppable monster, is because they want to plant the seeds for a possible Brock Lesnar vs. The Rock match for WrestleMania 32. It’s no secret that Rock has wanted a match with Brock and he has said so publicly. Of course, all of this depends on if Brock signs a new deal with WWE. Rock would have been involved in this year’s show but he couldn’t make it work because of his media schedule to promote “Furious 7.”

– Sting turns 56 years old today.

– As noted last week, WWE is using the same casting agency to help them find extras for Rusev’s entrance and Sting’s entrance at WrestleMania. The reason why they are using the same agency for both gigs is because they are using the same extras for both entrances as a way to save money. The agency would be paying $1,100 for each person that is booked. That is the total for all three days that they are there (rehearsals and actual show). The first day will consist of costume fittings and walk-throughs. They will be doing a late night rehearsal after the WWE Hall of Fame ceremony from 11pm to 3am and then must be at Levi’s Stadium all day the following day until WrestleMania is over.
