If you're a fan of the King of Sports, professional wrestling, then you may have wondered what CM Punk has been up to since he left the WWE the day after last January's Royal Rumble. Punk, occasionally known outside the ring as Phil Brooks, has been quiet about his plans for the future, but this week it was announced that he'll be writing a story for February's Thor Annual #1, with art by Chew's Rob Guillory, who will also be making his debut at Marvel.
Look, I'll admit that I haven't been completely excited about the upcoming Rocket Raccoon series by Skottie Young. Don't get me wrong, I love Bill Mantlo and Keith Giffen's spacefaring guardian as much as the next guy, and I'm pretty sure it's just our signature brand of ComicsAlliance Elitist Hipsterism creeping through that made me a little dismissive since the upswing in popularity that's keyed to this summer's big-budget Guardians of the Galaxy movie, but I just wasn't really into it.

As Hans Gruber once said, Christmas is "the season of miracles," and there is nothing more miraculous than the present Warner Bros. has just given us. After announcing all the way back in August of 2012 that there was going to be an animated crossover movie between Scooby-Doo and World Wrestling Entertainment, it seems that my dream of a better world is perilously close to becoming reality. Today, a trailer for Scooby-Doo WrestleMania Mystery has arrived online, and it is everything I have ever hoped for in my life.
The trailer, featuring appearances by the Miz, Brodus Clay, Sin Cara, AJ Lee, Triple H, Kane and, of course, John Cena, teases plenty of in-ring action for Scooby and Shaggy, although Velma and Daphne's heated rivalry for the Divas Championship remains unconfirmed. Check it out below!

So X-Men Origins: Wolverine star Hugh Jackman jumped into the middle of a fake WWE fight earlier this week by fake punching a wrestler called Dolph Ziggler, an act of sudden violence that prompted the announcer to shouted "X-Men-esque!" I don't claim to understand kayfabe the way Chris Sims does (or really at all), but it seems that Zig
