1. The Road to WrestleMania Leads to New York/New Jersey
Starting in Phoenix and ending at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., this year, The Road to WrestleMania will be long but rewarding. WWE brass has been mum on what we can expect at this year?s Show of Shows, but judging from the three men highlighted on the pay-per-view poster, it most certainly will be a special and explosive affair.
2. New Superstars!
Members of the WWE Universe with subscriptions to Hulu Plus have access to the brand-new NXT, featuring some of WWE?s youngest, best Superstars. The show is brimming with talent, and we can?t wait to watch these men and women move up to the main roster in the coming months.
Two very special 20-year milestones will be reached this year. In January, Raw turns 20, and after summer, September marks the month Paul Heyman took the reins of ECW. Also, this is the 20th anniversary of The Shockmaster. Judging by the way he works his way through walls, it?s still a relief he?s five more years away from renting cars.
7. Movie Blockbusters Mean New Kofi Gear
?Iron Man 3,? ?G.I. Joe,? ?Wolverine? and a rebooted ?Superman? are all releasing in 2013. That?s good news for moviegoers and even better news for Kofi Kingston. The spring-loaded Superstar and comic supergeek will have no shortage of inspiration for his highly detailed superhero-themed ring gear.

13. AJ Lee ? Future Divas Champion?
The ?silver lining? in AJ Lee?s resignation as Raw General Manager isn?t that movie with Bradley Cooper and the girl who played Mystique, it?s that we might be able to see this young Diva evolve into an in-ring star. Is title gold in her future? Probably.
