Dave Meltzer, who broke the news of The Rock missing tonight’s RAW and the subsequent last-minute re-writing of the show’s script, has been bombarded with questions since then for more details.  Meltzer has been a good fiends of The Rock’s for close to 20 years now, so many feel as if he knows more than he’s letting out.  He gave this brief update on the F4WOnline message board:

“Definitely not a creative issue. Everything they were planning tonight was right from his mouth and laid out by him to creative, not the other way around. He was the one who told Brock the angle and Brock was more than fine with it.

Don’t know the severity of the injury. Don’t want to speculate more until I hear more.

Cena thing taken down over a miscommunication on my part, will put it back up. Still happening as best I know.”

The last line is a reference to his initial report that a  plan was in place for John Cena on tonight’s RAW that would set the stage for a WWE Title defense at Extreme Rules.  That report said that it was an angle that the company has been considering for months and, at one point, was actually scheduled for WrestleMania 29.
