Earlier in the year, there were reports that Larry Zbyszko was going to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame at Wrestlemania this year. Management felt that his history with Bruno Sammartino was enough of a connection that the modern fans would accept the induction. It looks like that is going to have to wait at least another year. For whatever reasons, management has decided to remove him from the list of inductees this year.

It's something that a lot of fans have long been begging for, but WWE is finally going to slowly start replacing John Cena as the top star in the company. He would step into the Bruno Sammartino role, while Roman Reigns will step into the Bob Backlund role. For those that do not know about that particular part of wrestling history, Backlund was pushed by the company as the hot new thing even though Sammartino was still the biggest draw.
