On the latest episode of Smackdown, we saw that Miz and Damien Sandow will be facing one another at Monday Night Raw to decide which of the two will get to keep the name and the likeness of the character in WWE. While it would make more sense for Sandow to go back to his original name, the belief is that Mike Mizanin will drop the match, so that he can take some time off to go film a movie with Paige. He's going to need a couple of weeks.

Since Ireland is one of their stops during the tour of Europe, WWE made sure to bring a hometown hero to help sell the show. Finn Balor was brought along with the main roster. He received a great ovation from the audience as expected. He successfully defeated Adrian Neville in a match. Afterwards Sheamus came out to congratulate his fellow countrymen. However, to play up his new heel character, he turned on Balor and attacked him.

Before he started doing his gimmick of mimicking Miz, Damien Sandow had a character that was very similar to what Lanny Poffo used to do in WWE. Some fans were critical of that. During a recent interview, Poffo came to the defense of Sandow. He actually went out of his way to point out that Sandow was one of the nicest wrestlers he met during Wrestlemania week. Poffo said that Sandow did not steal his gimmick. He is fine with it.

Since they spent a lot of time in WCW tormenting one another, fans were a bit confused that the nWo would come out and save Sting. Scott Hall was asked about that from a fan through social media, and his response was that he had no comment. It is difficult for anyone involved with WWE to explain the logic behind that one. Hall did mention money as a factor, but that more than likely has to do with what his character is thinking.

As many of you already saw on Monday Night Raw, Sheamus made his return to WWE this week. The front office gave him a little momentum boost by doing a heel turn. That is not the only change that we will see with the character. During the Smackdown taping, the former world heavyweight champion was given a new entrance theme song and a new entrance routine. For them to go through this much trouble, a push is obviously expected.

There is some backstage heat on Kevin Nash from WWE because of his hall of fame induction. For starters, management is upset with him for refusing to be inducted as the Diesel character. Nash did not want to be remembered as one of the worst drawing champions of all time. Being inducted under his real name enables him to use that in Hollywood. Another reason why the front office is upset is because Nash put over WCW for giving guaranteed contracts.

While some people are under the belief that her tenure with WWE might be over now that Lana is no longer associated with Rusev, the opposite is actually true. Vince McMahon is said to be very high on her and wants to do big things with the character. He feels that the blonde beauty really knows how to control the audience and connect with them. A push is coming for sure, but details have not yet been revealed.

In case you're wondering, it has been a while since we've heard Wade Barrett cutting his "bad news" promos. The reason for that is because WWE officials instructed him to stop doing it. Management was concerned because the fans were actually cheering on the character and simultaneously saying the catchphrase with Barrett. Since he is supposed to be a heel, the front office wanted to ensure that he only received boos instead of cheers.
