Daniel Bryan health

There is still a good amount of concern backstage for Daniel Bryan. Some people feel that his long term health is in jeopardy because he refuses to have the type of neck surgery that WWE would rather have him do. There are even those that are comparing the situation to what the front office had to deal with Kurt Angle several years back. A big push will be hard to come by if Bryan does not have the trust of management in his corner.

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.

Hideo Itami winning

There was a back and forth backstage in NXT when it came to deciding who would win the tournament to wrestle at Wrestlemania. In the end, though, the front office decided to go with the business decision. Since they wanted to draw in fans from Japan, where WWE will be touring this summer, Hideo Itami was chosen. Management even further capitalized on the situation by having Japanese legend Tatsumi Fujinami endorsing Itami in the ring.

Wrestlemania opener

While it may seem like a non factor to most fans, there is actually a debate going on backstage in WWE right now about which match will open the kickoff show for Wrestlemania this year. Initially, Vince McMahon had the fatal four way for the tag team championship penciled in as the first match of the show. Now, with the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal being bumped off the main card, he is considering using that as the opener.

Finn Balor promotion

Based on talks backstage this past week, it looks like Finn Balor is going to be cutting in line. Rather than going through the process of NXT and carrying the heavyweight championship first, the front office is talking about spring boarding him up to the main roster shortly after Wrestlemania. The belief is that when he signed with the company, Balor was assured that he would not be stuck in developmental for too long of a period of time.
