Earlier in the month, the internet wrestling community was surprised when Kane was revealed as a potential candidate to be the mystery partner for Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns at Night of Champions. Some more fuel was added to the fire today, as it has now been confirmed that the former world heavyweight champion is indeed backstage at the pay per view. His return is expected to take place soon.

It seems like Hulk Hogan is asked at least once a week about a potential return to the ring. It happened again this week while he was promoting Wrestlemania. The former world heavyweight champion stated that it would only work out if WWE let him work with a top level performer who is already massively popular with the audience. Hogan listed Roman Reigns, Steve Austin, The Rock and John Cena as potential opponents.

Those that watched Smackdown last night saw the return of Mark Henry. However, what might have been missed was a verbal jab at the Young Bucks while he was admonishing Roman Reigns for not showing respect to people. Henry also mentioned the fact that Reigns hasn't been anywhere, which many viewed as an attack on Nick Jackson and Matt Jackson. The brothers have bashed WWE for trying to take away the Bullet Club hand sign.

While the majority of fans are hoping that Undertaker gets the win at Wrestlemania, there are those backstage in WWE that feel that it would be best for business if Bray Wyatt were to pick up the much needed victory, one that would give him enough momentum to head back into a main event scene that is set to feature a baby face champion in Roman Reigns. A loss for the Phenom would build anticipation for another return next year.

When Sheamus finally makes his return to WWE, expect some big things for him. Reports have surfaced that management intends on giving him a big push, one that will see him become one of the top heels on the roster again. Management needs strong opponents to put over Roman Reigns, who is still expected to win the heavyweight championship at Wrestlemania. The Celtic Warrior would need to be built up first to fill tat role eventually.

Another example of how WWE is trying to impress the USA Network tonight is the fact that held off the return of Roman Reigns until the special live episode of Smackdown tonight. Management generally does all the important events during Monday Night Raw, but decided to hold off the Reigns return, which has been highly anticipated by fans for quite some time now. The company feels that it would provide a big boost in viewership for their secondary show.
