To prepare fans for the divas match at Extreme Rules, WWE has been utilizing Nikki Bella and Brie Bella as baby faces on television. However, as of right now, management is not committed to doing a full fledged face turn. The reason for that is because they still want Paige to receive her shot at the title when she gets back from filming a movie with Miz. The goal is for her to be the one to remove the belt from Nikki. Naomi is considered a filler for now.

Even though she is barely old enough to drink legally in the United States, Paige has already accomplished quite a bit in her life. Thus far, she has already become a WWE star, captured the Divas Championship and worked a match at Wrestlemania in front of 76,976 screaming fans. Now, she can add movie star to her resume. Management has announced that the Pale Princess will be doing a movie with the Miz called Santa's Little Helper.

As of right now, it looks as if Damien Sandow will split from The Miz at Wrestlemania during the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal. A feud between the two is expected to ensue. While Sandow will be receiving some sort of a push because management was aware of the reaction that he was receiving from the audience, very few expect WWE to push him very far up the ladder. The belief is that Sandow will not get too close to the main event.

Instead of continuing to milk one of the best gimmicks in all of professional wrestling, WWE has decided to pull the trigger on the split of the Miz and Damien Sandow. On the latest episode of Monday Night Raw, we saw the former firing the latter as his stunt double but keeping him around as his personal assistant. The match between the two could take place as soon as Fast Lane, but there are some backstage wanting it to take place at Wrestlemania.

While he has not been used very frequently on television, Hornswoggle is usually backstage whenever WWE films Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. Many were under the impression that he had been sent home because he no longer was being utilized with the Miz and Damien Sandow, a gimmick that was viewed as being hilarious by many backstage. The Wisconsin native still works plenty of live events for the company.

Several people backstage in WWE have noted the irony in Damien Sandow becoming one of the hottest acts in the business. The gimmick of him being the stunt man for the Miz started because management wanted to bury him by having him be a comedic character that impersonated other wrestlers. Sandow impressed many within the company by committing to the character and figuring out how to make it succeed.

In case you're wondering what WWE has planned with the story line involving Jimmy Uso and The Miz, the current idea being floated around backstage is that this will eventually lead to a heel turn for Naomi, where the diva would receive a big push and a potential title reign. Management has long been a big fan of her work, especially since she displays so much athleticism, desire and dedication. Her removal from Total Divas was said to be a tough choice.

Rumors are floating around that WWE officials are not pleased with the debut of The Ascension on Monday Night Raw this week. The belief is that the entire segment fell a bit flat, despite management pairing them up with the popular duo of The Miz and Damien Sandow. Viktor and Konnor showed a lot of enthusiasm and energy, but the audience simply did not connect with their gimmick. Their push could be greatly affected by the first impression they gave.
