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.

Some possible good news for fans who are against the idea of Roman Reigns becoming the top star in WWE. There is now a really good chance that he does not get that opportunity because rumors have surfaced that Triple H has finally convinced Vince McMahon to let Brock Lesnar retain the heavyweight championship. The widespread feeling is that giving the belt to Reigns will actually hurt him in the long run because the fans are so against it right now.

A lot of people are under the impression that Sheamus is going to be a mystery entrant into the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania. However, WWE has been telling fans that there are only going to be 20 contestants. Each of those spots have been filled. So now, the belief is that the former world heavyweight champion is going to be thrown into the ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship instead.

While a lot of WWE fans are overjoyed right now about the Brock Lesnar news, they are about to be brought back down to earth for a bit when they realize that the new contract means that John Cena has a better chance of winning the United States Heavyweight Championship from Rusev at Wrestlemania. Since Lesnar will still be part time, the front office wanted a belt on Cena, so that he can use it to headline live events each week.

Looks like things have worked out better for The Ascension than initially thought. WWE did not view them as being good enough for the tag team championship match, so Los Matadores replaced them. The front office then opted to put that match on the kickoff show instead. Since they needed depth in the Andre the Giant memorial battle, Konnor and Viktor were given spots, which means they get to work on the main card.

Odds makers are pretty good at what they do because they take a look at as many variables as they can before they make their predictions. They follow WWE pretty close and are frequently correct in their percentages. As of right now, the odds are that Dean Ambrose wins the ladder match at Wrestlemania and captures the Intercontinental Championship. Management probably hasn't chosen a winner in the match yet, however.

In case you still cannot see that the Ascension are being demoted greatly by WWE, then take a look at the Wrestlemania card. Management wanted to have four teams competing for the tag team championship. Since they are so unimpressed with Viktor and Konnor, they opted to push Los Matadores instead. Diego and Fernando have been rarely used over the last year. They only made sporadic appearances with El Torito.

One of the ideas floating around backstage in WWE right now is to have Sheamus making his much anticipated and much promoted return during the Intercontinental Championship ladder match at Wrestlemania. He would initially do so as a baby face before getting the fans to turn on him by costing Daniel Bryan the match. A title feud between the two would then take place for the next month or so.
