Paige title match

Those that watched the latest episode of Smackdown saw Nikki Bella and Brie Bella taunting and attacking Paige in a backstage segment. WWE did that because they were setting up a divas championship match between Nikki and the Pale Princess at Fast Lane. This is more than likely a filler match, as management is said to be leaning towards having Nikki heading into Wrestlemania with the championship in tow.

Wyatt challenging Undertaker

On the latest episode of Smackdown, Bray Wyatt cut a vague promo, and it has the entire internet wrestling community going into speculation mode. During the interview, he stated that he does not fear anyone, living or dead. That has led to rumors that WWE has started his highly anticipated and long rumored story line with the Undertaker. The two of them were reportedly penciled in for a match at Wrestlemania, pending the health of the Phenom.

Rey Mysterio to Lucha Underground

Once he is no longer contractually obligated to WWE, the belief is that Rey Mysterio will continue his career as an in ring performer. While TNA has yet to be removed as a potential destination, the belief is that he will be venturing over to Lucha Underground because he wants to be part of the movement. Along with the already signed and rejuvenated Alberto Del Rio, Mysterio could help the promotion gain more exposure nationwide.

Rey Mysterio leaving

Some further details have been revealed about the ongoing contract negotiations between Rey Mysterio and WWE. It is not good news if you're a big fan of the masked performer remaining with the company. Reports have surfaced that Mysterio already has the release paperwork in his hands, but he has not signed it yet because the former world heavyweight champion still has a couple of details that he wants to iron out before walking away from the company.

Wrestlemania opening match

The opening match of a wrestling pay per view is really an interesting spot. Some view it as an honor, while others view it as degrading. WWE knows that the fans are hot at the beginning of the show, so they want to put together a great opening match at Wrestlemania. The idea right now is to start the event with a match between Dolph Ziggler and Daniel Bryan. Both guys are massively popular, and the match will be one of the best of the evening.

Wade Barrett as CM Punk

During a podcast interview with Chris Jericho, the wildly underrated Wade Barrett revealed a canceled story line that might not have gone over very well with the audience. When WWE was in Chicago last year, they wanted to take a jab at the fans by having Barrett impersonate CM Punk, who had left the company. Management changed up the plans at the very last minute and do an alternate segment with Paul Heyman teasing the audience.

Lashley supports Punk

At one point in time, Bobby Lashley was hoping to follow Brock Lesnar and become the next WWE performer to make the jump over to UFC. That has yet to happen and appears very unlikely right now. Of course, that does not mean that he is bitter towards others who are attempting to make the move. During a recent Give Me Sports interview, Lashley expressed his support towards CM Punk. He also thinks that he will do rather well in MMA.

Rey Mysterio contract

For the next few weeks, everything in WWE will revolve around Wrestlemania. That will be the main topic of discussion backstage. However, some will also be talking about Rey Mysterio and his contract situation. His deal is set to expire shortly after the big pay per view, and many are wondering ow management is going to handle the situation this time around. Locker room morale might take a bit of a hit if the masked performer is forced to stay.

Mick Foley appearances

After the comments that he made about Vince McMahon and his writing skills earlier this week, there are questions about how the relationship between Mick Foley and WWE stands currently. Of course, that does not rule out future appearances with the company by the legend. Foley does not have a show booked during the night of Fast Lane. Plus, he has several shows booked in northern Caliornia during Wrestlemania week.

Smackdown announcers

Even though the change was made this month, there are already rumblings that we could be seeing another change in the form of the Smackdown announcers. Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler are safe in their positions, but there are rumors that WWE isn't completely sold on Byron Saxton just yet. Fortunately for him, there are people backstage who love his personality, so he will have some in his corner when push comes to shove.
