A match between Randy Orton and Seth Rollins is still heavily expected to take place at Wrestlemania. That much is known. What is not known, however, is who management will have coming out on top after the bell rings. Many backstage in WWE are pushing for Rollins to be put over, so that he can be moved into a title program with Roman Reigns. However, there are some that are pushing for Orton to get the win because he is making a comeback.

Management seems to have found a candidate in Randy Orton. While the match should be high profile, the feeling backstage is that this is simply a filler feud for Rollins. The company is simply killing time with him before they figure out when to pull the Money in the Bank trigger.

One idea being tossed around backstage is to have the former world heavyweight champion working a high profile singles match against Seth Rollins.
