Roman Reigns no chance

During the Thursday episode of Wrestlemania Today, Michael Cole made some comments about Roman Reigns not having a chance against Brock Lesnar. Since he said it a second time and did so more adamantly, the belief is that Vince McMahon or another WWE official was in his ears and instruction him to tear down Reigns verbally. That, in turn, has fueled the rumors about Lesnar being rewarded with an extended title reign.

Sting and HHH training

Generally, WWE stars who are paired up for matches with one another at Wrestlemania start practicing on their routine together at the various live events during the previous week. When you're doing a match with Sting and Triple H, however, you cannot afford to give that away for free. Thus, the two legendary performers decided to work things out at the performance center in Orlando. HHH is expected to call the match in the ring.

Eva Marie replacing Lawler

While WWE has since decided to change back to their original plans, there is some merit to the idea of Eva Marie replacing Jerry Lawler. There was a strong push by certain individuals backstage for well over a month now to do a youth movement. By having someone as attractive as Eva as the host, the feeling is that it would make the hall of fame ceremony more of a draw for Wrestemania. The change could still take place next year.
