As an effort to generate some last minute excitement for Wrestlemania, WWE has decided to put their top stars into a big tag team match. In the main event of Smackdown this week, John Cena will team up with Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns and Mark Henry to take on Bray Wyatt, Big Show, Seth Rollins and Kane. The match could just end up in a big brawl at the end, so that they can promote the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.

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.

There are talks coming out of WWE right now that if Brock Lesnar were to sign a new contract to remain with the company, then he would be rewarded with a victory over Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania. He would still be allowed to work the limited schedule that he has been on while continuing to carry the heavyweight championship. Management would then put the IC and US belt on Daniel Bryan and John Cena respectively so they can headline live events.

In a very touching display of compassion, WWE announced on the latest episode of Monday Night Raw that they would be inducting Connor Michalek into the hall of fame during Wrestlemania weekend. He was the terminally ill kid that was a huge fan of professional wrestling. To their credit, the company brought him in and allowed him to meet his favorite stars, including Daniel Bryan. Triple H even wrestled the kid and did the job for him in the ring.

We now know that ladders are going to play a part at Wrestlemania this year. WWE has officially announced that Wade Barrett is going to be defending the Intercontinental Championship at the pay per view in a ladder match.

The assumption is Dean Ambrose, R Truth, Dolph Ziggler and Daniel Bryan.

A little bit of controversy has arisen within the internet wrestling community, and it is all because of the performers that WWE chose to appear on their Wrestlemania poster this year. John Cena, Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns were obvious because they are the top full time performers. However, it did not sit well with some fans that part time guys like Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, Triple H and Sting took the remaining parts.

Now that Fast Lane is over and done with, there are talks that WWE is leaning back towards having Dolph Ziggler and Daniel Bryan working a match against one another at Wrestlemania. The belief is that management wants the card to have a truly well worked match since the main event features two power guys in Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar. Bryan and Ziggler should be given ample time to steal the show like they normally do.
