As some of you already know, plans change pretty often backstage in WWE. Originally, Kalisto and Sin Cara were supposed to challenge Tyson Kidd and Antonio Cesaro for the tag team championship at Extreme Rules. However, management opted to change things up by giving the match to Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston instead, even though the Lucha Dragons received really nice ovations from the live events during the Europe tour.

Some good news if you're a fan of the New Day. Since management could not get them over as baby faces, the plan now is to turn them into heel. As seen on Monday Night Raw, Xavier Woods and Big E Langston were a lot more aggressive in the ring than normal. They came close to cheating on a couple of occasions. The losses and boos will eventually cause them to go evil. This would mark the first heel turn for Kofi Kingston since joining WWE.

Some further details have been revealed about the family emergency that Kofi Kingston has been dealing with. His sister passed away earlier in the week. That led to rumors that he was forced to leave San Francisco and would miss Wrestlemania. However, reports then surfaced that the longtime WWE star was going to stick around and finish off the pay per view before going to be with his family later on in the week.

There are speculations floating around that WWE is doing an about face with the New Day stable and are actually considering a push for the trio. Rumors were started when the official company website published an article where it suggested that management might bring back the Freebird Rule, which would enable Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston to share the tag team championship. It could just be a tease from the writers.

It looks like WWE will actually showcase their tag team championship at Wrestlemania this year. As of right now, there are plans penciled in to do a title match featuring four different teams. Management is still undecided about a championship scramble or a simple fatal four way. The rumored contestants for the match are Jimmy Uso, Jey Uso, Tyson Kidd, Antonio Cesaro, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, Big E Langston, Diego and Fernando.

If you look at the record books, you will notice that Xavier Woods has yet to work a pay per view for WWE this year. That streak will more than likely be ending at Wrestlemania, as he is rumored to be a possible participant in two different matches. Woods might team up with Kofi Kingston or Big E Langston to face several tag teams for the title. If management does not go that route, then Woods will be a participant in the battle royal.
