Since it was the first time that NXT held a live event outside of Florida, WWE decided to send a couple of their stars to help draw in the audience. The plan seemingly backfired. While the two of them worked what was said to be an above average match, the audience really laid into Big Show and Ryback. Some of the chants suggested that Show enter early retirement. Others chanted that The Big Guy was overly repetitive in the ring.

Wrestlemania is less than a month away, and WWE still has not figured out how they are going to use two performers who will eventually be inducted into the hall of fame some day. Kane and Big Show are without a match at this point in time. They were initially penciled in for some sort of tag team match against Dolph Ziggler and Ryback. However, Ziggler has already been added to the Intercontinental Championship ladder match.

In a move that shocks very few people, WWE has changed some of the plans for Wrestlemania again. Initially, Ryback was scheduled to work some sort of tag team match against The Authority with Dolph Ziggler and Luke Rowan. However, that has been scratched completely from the card. Ziggler is now going to be involved in the ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship, while the Big Guy has officially been added to the battle royal.

In the opening match of Fast Lane, Seth Rollins, Kane and Big Show were able to successfully get the win over Dolph Ziggler, Ryback and Erick Rowan. Ziggler was caught up with the Big Red Machine in the corner when Show came flying from the floor with the knockout punch. WWE might have made a mistake in going with this match to start the show because the audience started dying out in parts. The Authority assaulted the baby faces afterwards.

In case you're wondering why the two of them have formed a tag team, Dolph Ziggler and Ryback are now penciled in for a match against Kane and Big Show at Wrestlemania. The constantly changing plans for the pay per view has removed Ziggler from a potential mat classic with Daniel Bryan, who is being eyed for the main event with Brock Lesnar. The Little Guy and the Big Guy will not be a permanent part of the tag team division, though.

During the match between Ryback and Luke Harper during Monday Night Raw last night, JBL generated a bit of controversy with some comments that he made. When Harper flew over the ropes, the commentator stated that he looked like a "zombie Eddie Guerrero", which drew the ire of the internet wrestling community, who pounced him with some negative comments through social media. Guerrero still remains very popular with the fans.

Some concerns have been risen in regards to the push that Rusev has been receiving in WWE. Right now, management is obviously stalling with him. The Russian sympathizer has not been thrown into a feud and has been working random matches against Dean Ambrose, R Truth, Roman Reigns, Justin Gabriel and Ryback. The belief is that the creative department did have a good story for him and will wait for the Royal Rumble.

As many of you already know, CM Punk accused Ryback of being a sloppy in ring performer who purposely injured the people that he worked with. You can count Chris Jericho as one of the people who believe that is an unfair accusation. During a recent Digital Spy interview in England, Jericho stated that he worked with the Big Guy for several months and felt that he was a competent worker who did not have malicious intentions.

Through social media, Ryback revealed to fans that he was denied entry to a WWE live event in his hometown of Las Vegas over the weekend. He also stated that he purchased a ticket, yet was not allowed in. For clarification, this is simply a matter of him portraying his character and preserving the story line of him being fired by The Authority. The Big Guy is expected back on television soon. He is also scheduled for the Royal Rumble.
