Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson invaded the Twittersphere as a trending topic Monday night when he returned to professional wrestling and announced that he will be hosting Wrestlemania XXVII in April. Jeff Katz, Jill Thompson and Becky Cloonan all seemed excited about that, even as Jhonen Vasquez sounded a little aggravated about his Valentine's Day expenses.
The other big TV star of the night was a computer named Watson who competed against some simple human beings on "Jeopardy!" A call for the computer's destruction along with some evil plans for Moon Knight and a poetically minimalist summary of "Watchmen" can be see after the jump.
