Big E Langston
Prior to Wrestlemania 30, there were plans in place to push Alberto Del Rio towards Big E Langston and the WWE Intercontinental Championship, so when the tournament was announced, many viewed Del Rio as a top candidate to win.

Rob Van Dam
There are people backstage in WWE that are questioning the Rob Van Dam return, as it almost feels like an afterthought.

April 11, 2014
Rob Van Dam
Despite the guy still having a large fan base, the return of Rob Van Dam was removed from the Hulu broadcast of Monday Night Raw this week. The former world heavyweight champion defeated Damien Sandow in a quick match, but WWE did not view it as a segment important enough to be shown to their fans on Hulu. A lot of eyes will be on RVD now to see how much of a push that he receives from management.

Damien Sandow
On Monday Night Raw this week, rumors about Rob Van Dam making his return to WWE turned out to be true. He came back and defeated Damien Sandow in a quick squash.

Rob Van Dam
Since rumors leaked that he was going to be returning during the Wrestlemania 30 battle royal, WWE opted to pull Rob Van Dam from the event.

Since management still is trying to figure out a way to get the WWE NXT guys involved at Wrestlemania 30, there is a chance that Sami Zayn and Adrian Neville could be given one of the three remaining spots in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal at the pay per view on Sunday. Rob Van Dam is a strong candidate to take a spot as well.
April 3, 2014
Andre the Giant

While a confirmed date has not been given, we now have a narrowed down time frame for when Rob Van Dam is expected to return to WWE.

Rob Van Dam
It is looking less likely that Rob Van Dam will be returning in time for the biggest wrestling event of the year, as management has been pretty busy trying to put together the card.

While they are interested in bringing him back into the company at some point, one of the problems that WWE is facing right now with Rob Van Dam is being able to find a spot at Wrestlemania 30 for him. Things have already been hectic as is backstage, so trying to find a good place and a story line for him is not really a priority at this point.

It has been several years since Shelly Martinez has worked for TNA or WWE, but she still remains a person of interest to some wrestling fans. That's a big reason why Rob Van Dam decided to have her on his show this week.
