Aside from half hearted programs with Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio, Alberto Del Rio really has not been given a full program by WWE to work with since wrestling John Cena at Survivor Series 2013. However, the feeling backstage is that Del Rio is assured a spot at Wrestlemania 30 to draw in the Spanish media.
It is now being said that Vince McMahon made an appearance in the arena after the Survivor Series went off the air because he wanted to test the audience to see how they would react to his upcoming return.
Prior to the Survivor Series, there were talks of turning Big E Langston back into a heel and having him challenge John Cena for the World Heavyweight Championship.
After being sent home early from the European tour because of chest pains, Dean Malenko returned to work backstage for WWE last night at the Survivor Series.
The goal all along for the Survivor Series was to feature Roman Reigns and make him appear more like a main event level performer, which is why the main reason WWE put together that tag team match.
Since he made a cameo appearance during a backstage segment at the Survivor Series, speculations have arisen about John Laurinaitis making his return to WWE television, but the former on screen general manager is not scheduled to do so anytime soon.
Word going around is that despite doing the tease between John Cena and Randy Orton at the end of the Survivor Series last night, the two of them are not expected to feud until Wrestlemania.
Randy Orton predictably defeated the Big Show to retain the WWE Heavyweight Championship at the Survivor Series. He was able to hit the RKO after Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Kane provided the distraction by coming out to the ramp.
After a match filled with crowd pleasing signature spots, CM Punk and Daniel Bryan picked up the win over Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. Bryan blasted Rowan with the running knee, as Punk pinned Harper after the Go 2 Sleep finisher.
Many were predicting John Cena to successfully defend the World title against Alberto Del Rio at Survivor Series, and WWE did not stray from that. Cena dodged the arm breaker and hit the Attitude Adjustment for the pin fall victory.
After he was pulled from Royal Rumble 2014 at the last minute, Evan Bourne told fans on Twitter that he was still working on making his return to WWE, but as of right now, it does not appear that management is making that a priority backsage.
At one point, Evan Bourne was supposed to make his return to WWE at Royal Rumble 2014, but management opted against that move on Sunday night. The high flying wrestler decided to address the issue on Twitter by telling his fans to not worry about last night and that he is still working on his comeback.
Rumor has it that Evan Bourne is expected to make his return to WWE soon, and many believe that management will be making that happen at the Royal Rumble pay per view as a mystery entrant. He has recently been taking it up a notch with his workouts.
After a lengthy absence due to an injury, Evan Bourne has been waiting to make his return to WWE. The high flying performer has been teasing fans through Twitter that he could be doing that at the Royal Rumble as a mystery entrant.
Since the creative department doesn't have a story line readily available for him, the belief is that Evan Bourne will be returning to WWE as a mystery entrant during the Royal Rumble. Management is looking for some surprises at the show.
Evan Bourne joked on Twitter about his Slammy award that was stolen by former WWE star Mike Knox.
WWE officials expect Evan Bourne to return from injuries before the year is over.
