John Cena vs Rusev

In a rather surprising move, WWE has announced that John Cena and Rusev will be wrestling one another at the inaugural Fast Lane pay per view in February. The move comes as a surprise because many feel that it is taking place much too soon. The Russian sympathizer was being groomed for a big match at Wrestlemania, so having him face Cena at the pay per view before that, it seems a bit of a quick trigger decision making.

Bray Wyatt elite

Among the performers backstage, there is a certain elite group of people over the years that have been booked strong in the Royal Rumble. Many view that as an accomplishment because WWE is quite selective in how the battle royal is booked. A performer that joined this year was Bray Wyatt, who was allowed to work nearly 50 minutes by management. While not as prestigious as being the winner, longevity is quite the accomplishment.
