Mostly promo tie in for "The Tooth Fairy". The (small) highlight for me was a brief moment of crossing paths with Coachman, where I was just waiting for Dwayne to go off on him.

What's interesting to me about that is that Coach is clearly a few inches taller than Dwayne, meaning WWE must have been using some kind of trickery (Coach standing in a hole?) to make The Rock appear taller in interviews.

I forget how good that guy was, why he was so popular.

Also, ESPN should have noted that Disney (their parent company) is behind the film.

Someone pointed out elsewhere that it was probably the Rock's wrestling boots.

It also looks like in a lot of the WWE interviews, in addition to Rock's boots adding to his height, they'd make Coach stand a few inches behind The Rock, in order to make him look a little bit taller just from perspective.

Thanks SchippeWreck.

That clip was amazing. The cow story was like some Family Guy segment that just kept going and going. His reactions were priceless.

Vince should be busting ass to do what it takes to get him back, even as a guest host, ASAP.

I can't believe he hasn't been a RAW guest host yet promoting any of his last two movies.

And I find it hard to believe that Vince hasn't been trying to get him to host knowing that Rock has something to promote.

FWIW, I saw Tooth Fairy last weekend and it was actually much better than I thought it would be. Johnson has grown as an actor, and could do these Disney films for the next ten years.

If you can, these two organizations are hard at work in Haiti, so please give them a hand.

He told Meltzer that he was supposed to guest host this month but had to do international promotion for Tooth Fairy. So they're going to do something this summer.

First thing that came to mind was the fact that this century is only 11 years old... On the one hand I'm impressed that WWE has developed time travel, but using it just to make another DVD set seems kind of unimaginative.
