Kevin Nash induction speech

Since the late Randy Savage is not available to be there in person, it looks like WWE will rely on Kevin Nash to close out the hall of fame ceremony. The plan is to have him be the main event of the show because he is one of the best talkers around. Plus, it would give fans an opportunity to hear Shawn Michaels speak as well. Another reunion of the Clique is a possibility, as Triple H, Sean Waltman and Scott Hall will be there.

Sheamus push

When Sheamus finally makes his return to WWE, expect some big things for him. Reports have surfaced that management intends on giving him a big push, one that will see him become one of the top heels on the roster again. Management needs strong opponents to put over Roman Reigns, who is still expected to win the heavyweight championship at Wrestlemania. The Celtic Warrior would need to be built up first to fill tat role eventually.

Mr Anderson push

During a recent interview, Mr Anderson was asked about what it was like to lose his push while working for WWE. He stated that it was really unfair that the company punishes performers for getting injured. You lose your spot on the ladder when that happens, so a lot of wrestlers will try to work through the pain to prevent that from happening. Anderson also stated that he was treated a lot differently when he was switched to Monday Night Raw.

Finn Balor on Wrestlemania

One of the names being discussed for the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania is one that will surely please much of the internet wrestling community. There are talks going around that WWE is considering the idea of putting Finn Balor in the match. They feel that it would be a good way to subtly introduce him to their core fans. While they would love to do his awesome entrance, there is not enough time at the pay per view for that.
