Originally posted by InVerseMore important, Lance Storm is in Miami and is actually wrestling. Hopefully they're finally going to give him a Wrestelmania paycheck. He could run in and superkick Laurenitis for stealing his personality.
Storm worked the ROH show and was at the HOF, but says he's visiting his mom on the other side of Florida today and not even watching WrestleMania live. A clever swerve???
I don't know if the parting of ways last time was amiable
It was very not amiable, on all sides. Heyman works as a manager for Brock in real life, so he's surely involved in getting this deal done. It would not be a surprise to see him during interviews for Brock when Brock isn't around (because Brock is not going to be around full time), but there's almost no chance Heyman's involved in creative.

Meltzer reports Brock Lesnar is in Miami. The rumor is he's signed a 1-year contract with WWE (not for a full number of dates, obviously).
Batista has also been seen in Miami.
...or not. Maybe tomorrow?
I guess it should have been more obvious to us all that this was more likely to be a Raw SuperShow spoiler than a Wrestlemania spoiler, considering the main event has been set in stone for a year and the second biggest match on the card would not benefit in any way from Lesnar and/or Batista's tomfoolery.
But I sure was waiting for SOMETHING to happen! The main event was certainly slow enough for a run-in.
I like the idea of Cornette as the commish ex machina. It allows the entire company to reboot their angles, either immediately (LAX) or gradually (the title belt). He provides the audience avatar to clean up the old and tired.
