Antonio Cesaro
In an action filled Wrestlemania 30 kickoff match, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso retained the WWE tag team championship by defeating Diego, Fernando, Curtis Axel, Ryback, Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro in a fatal four way elimination tag team bout. Afterwards, Cesaro did a face turn after Swagger attempted to attack him for being pinned.

Antonio Cesaro
Despite being thrown into the kickoff match at Wrestlemania 30, Antonio Cesaro is the choice for Mick Foley when it comes to being the guy that will be given the big spotlight on the next episode of Monday Night Raw. Generally, WWE considers this episode to be the start of the new season, so they try to elevate someone up the ladder that evening.

Antonio Cesaro
Rumor has it that there are several people backstage in WWE that are disappointed with how Antonio Cesaro is being utilized at Wrestlemania 30. Instead of being given a big singles match on the pay per view, he is working a kickoff match with Jack Swagger. It also features Jimmy Usu, Jey Uso, Fernando, Diego, Ryback and Curtis Axel.

Antonio Cesaro
Initially, the belief was that the tag team championships were going to be given some spotlight by WWE at their biggest pay per view of the year, but it has now been announced that Ryback, Curtis Axel, Fernando, Diego, Antonio Cesaro, Jack Swagger, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso are being moved to the Wrestlemania 30 kickoff match spot.

Andre the Giant
Since time constraints might be an issue, there were talks earlier this week of putting the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal as a kickoff match, but management wants to use it as a promotional vehicle, so it is now back on the main Wrestlemania 30 card. Many are expecting the segment to be heavily rushed, though.

Andre the Giant
While a lot of fans bought into the hype of the match since a legendary name was attached to it, WWE is viewing the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal as an afterthought. There is even a strong push to move it off the pay per view and utilized it as a kickoff match, despite several stars such as Ryback, Kofi Kingston, Big E Langston and Dolph Ziggler being rumored for spots.
March 15, 2014
Curtis Axel
Once you get into that WWE dog house, it's pretty hard to get out. Management has sent more messages to Ryback this month. First, he and Curtis Axel are utilized as a filler tag team during the Elimination Chamber 2014 kickoff match. This week, the two of them are paired up with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre in an eight man tag team match on WWE Superstars.
February 26, 2014
Cody Rhodes
While many were under the impression that Cody Rhodes was being left off of the Elimination Chamber 2014 main card because of his knee injury, apparently, he is healthy enough to work, as WWE has placed him into the kickoff match. He will be teaming with Goldust in a tag team match against Ryback and Curtis Axel.
February 19, 2014
Darren Young
In case you missed the announcement on Monday Night Raw this week, Darren Young and Titus ONeil will be having their grudge match on the main Elimination Chamber 2014 pay per view next Sunday night. Many were under the belief that it was going to be the kickoff match, but management decided to step things up a bit.
February 19, 2014
Billy Gunn

During the kickoff match for Royal Rumble 2014, Road Dogg and Billy Gunn shocked the wrestling world when they were able to defeat Cody Rhodes and Goldust to become the new WWE tag team champions. Many were under the impression that their return was a temporary one.

Jinder Mahal
On WWE Main Event, Hornswoggle teamed up with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre, which has caused some speculations to arise. Rumors over the past several weeks have stated that Heath Slater was unhappy backstage because he was not receiving a push. However, his absence on this show was unrelated, as Slater missed the show because he is heading to Saudi Arabia for a tour with WWE.

Heath Slater
Since the company needs room for all the new stars that they are bringing up from the developmental program, WWE is expected to allow several of the veteran performers to leave the company soon. The belief is that Heath Slater will be allowed to walk once his contract expires. The 3MB member has expressed frustration backstage over not receiving a push.
April 14, 2014
Fandango
WWE has announced that the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal will consists of Alberto Del Rio, Big E Langston, Big Show, Brodus Clay, Christian, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow, Darren Young, Dolph Ziggler, Drew McIntyre, Fandango, Goldust, Great Khali, Heath Slater, Jinder Mahal, Justin Gabriel, Kofi Kingston, Mark Henry, Miz, R Truth, Rey Mysterio, Santino Marella, Sheamus, Sin Cara, Titus ONeil and Zack Ryder. There are also four spots available for last minute entrants.
March 25, 2014
Andre the Giant
Earlier in the year, it was hard to fathom that 3MB would be working a match at Wrestlemania 30 because Drew McIntyre, Heath Slater and Jinder Mahal have been barely used by WWE in relevant roles. However, all three are now confirmed for the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal. The move should appease Slater a bit, as he has been growing a bit frustrated backstage.

Heath Slater
There are talks going around that Heath Slater could be leaving WWE whenever his contract expires. While he has been a good employee for the company, management has no plans on utilizing him on a regular basis. He has grown rather frustrated backstage with the situation over the last couple of weeks and no changes appear to be in sight.
March 8, 2014
Jinder Mahal
There are talks backstage that Heath Slater has grown really frustrated with his role in WWE. He has only had one televised win since November of 2013. He has also been utilized just once on Monday Night Raw this year, teaming with Jinder Mahal and Drew McIntyre in a losing effort to guest stars Rikishi, Brian Christopher and Scotty 2 Hotty.

Heath Slater
"I thought it was awesome. I love the kid. He was having the time of his life because he was a fan of all of us. So he couldn't wait for the Vader Bomb or the Diamond Cutter. I mean he loved it. And he's a good kid, he's a damn good worker. I hope at some point he actually gets the push. He could back it up because he can talk and he can work." - Diamond Dallas Page on how Heath Slater is backstage
