It appears that the rumors about a New Day push are true. Kofi Kingston and Big E Langston were able to capture the belt from Tyson Kidd and Antonio Cesaro. Of course, Kingston generated some heel heat for the trio by grabbing a handful of trunks to secure the pin fall. They were jeered by the audience because of their new tactics, which means that the booking is working. Natalya and Xavier Woods were heavily involved.

As many of you have already seen, WWE has given a push to Fandango that started with a face turn and a split from Rosa Mendes. He has also been given a couple of victories on television to build momentum. Unfortunately, though, this push will not lead him to anywhere near the main event scene. Management is basically just pushing him to give the fans something to pop for in the mid card. That is why he was given his catchy theme song back.

Since his tag team partner Eddie Edwards is on the shelf, Davey Richards believed that he had nothing to do in TNA. However, management has assured him that he will be pushed as a singles performer while his partner recovers from an injury. Richards is going to be utilized in the X division, where he will be challenging for the championship very soon. This is essentially an audition to see if he can be pushed as a top level star in the future.

Earlier today, Dolph Ziggler posted a rather long and interest message through social media. He sounded quite disgruntled with how WWE has been treating him, a problem that he has faced in the past. He mentioned something about giving them five months to show him that he needs them. That has led to speculation that Ziggler has a contract set to expire later on this year. Management has pushed him a little, but he is stuck under a glass ceiling.

Rumor has it that the Bella Twins have been pushing hard to get their own spin off show. They want to do so because it would provide their friends and family an opportunity to gain more exposure on television. WWE is hesitant because they fear that Total Divas would not be much of a draw with Nikki Bella and Brie Bella, as they are viewed the stars of the show. There is also said to be some backstage heat towards the sisters from the other divas for this.

When you attend a live event, more often than not, the good guy is going to win. WWE does that because they want to send the fans home happy. However, the move came as a bit of a shock when they allowed Jimmy Uso to beat Wade Barrett at a show in Germany. Barrett is the one receiving a push and working a title match at Extreme Rules, whereas Uso is floating around as a singles competitor because Jey Uso is injured.

On Thursday night, NXT made their debut at Martin Luther King Jr Recreation Center in Gainesville, Florida. The packed house was treated to a little surprise return. Mojo Rowley has finally come back from his injury. He was out for several months.

Through social media, Wade Barrett revealed that he would be returning to England after WWE concludes their tour of Europe. He more than likely will be written off of Monday Night Raw so that he can return to his home country to film the movie Eliminators. No word yet on how long he will be on the set, but the front office should not have any problems with him being gone because he is not receiving a big push at the moment.

Word going around right now is that Arn Anderson was the one that pushed WWE to induct Alundra Blayze into the hall of fame. He felt that enough time had been passed to bring up the idea to upper management. The belief is that Vince McMahon was able to convinced to do so because someone told him that it would be a great way to take another jab at WCW. It has been reported that McMahon was the one that asked her to do the trash can bit.
