While his first choice remains an epic rematch against Dwayne Johnson at the Wrestlemania taking place in Dallas next year, Triple H has a secondary plan in case the world famous actor is not available. Seeds have been planted for an eventual feud between HHH and his protege Seth Rollins, whose character was hand chosen by the on screen COO to hold the world heavyweight championship. A slow rift will be built up over the upcoming months.

On Monday Night Raw, WWE set forth the story line where Lana was dumped by Rusev, only to fall into the arms of Dolph Ziggler. The two shared a kiss in the middle of the ring that generated a really good reaction from the audience. The reason for adding an interesting story is because the creative department wanted to protect the Russian sympathizer because it will feel like a bit of a drop to go from feuding with John Cena to feuding with anyone else.

In what felt like a filler match at Payback, Adrian Neville was able to pick up a victory over Wade Barrett because the latter walked out of the ring and purposely never came back. While it was designed to provide more heel heat for Barrett, WWE ended up sucking the air out of the audience because they were really rooting for Neville to pick up the clean victory. From the looks of things, this feud is expected to last at least another month.

While the company would never publicly admit it, WWE views the divas division a lot differently than they do their male counterparts.

There are those in WWE that are already second guessing the decision to have Big Show winning the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at Wrestlemania. He has not exactly done much with the trophy since then. His feud with Roman Reigns would have worked out just fine without the thing being involved. Rumors have it that a main source of discontent about the situation is that it would have better served someone like Damien Sandow.

During a recent interview, Diamond Dallas Page revealed that he has a regret about his first meeting with Vince McMahon and Shane McMahon. He felt that he should have never signed a contract with WWE because they rejected his idea of feuding with The Rock. Both guys claim to be the People's Champion, so the story would basically write itself. DDP ended up begrudgingly accepting the stalker idea with Undertaker.

Due mainly to the negative response from fans, WWE has been forced to keep Roman Reigns away from the top spot. That is the reason why he is stuck in a feud with the Big Show at the moment. At one point in time, management had plans for Reigns to work a stall program with Kane. That feud is most likely to happen if they change their minds about having Reigns work a triple threat title match with Seth Rollins and Randy Orton at Payback.
