WWE revealed that Daniel Bryan might not be healthy enough to work his scheduled match against Wade Barrett at Extreme Rules on Sunday night. A replacement match was being discussed, and rumors are now saying that it will be a match between Bray Wyatt and Ryback. If Bryan is healthy enough to work, then the pay per view proceeds as normal. Wyatt would then get his much needed big win at Payback the following month.

For a couple of weeks now, Bray Wyatt has been cutting some vague promos that have left fans wondering who his next mystery opponent is going to be. As of right now, the plan in WWE is to have him working a match against Ryback at Extreme Rules. That is the reason why the promo was aired immediately before the Big Guy wrestled Adam Rose. The belief is that management is feeding Wyatt an opponent to get his heat back.

Since WWE does not have anything written in stone for Roman Reigns right now, they are going to be stalling his push at Extreme Rules. He'll definitely get a match on the pay per view because they want him to remain in front of the cameras. However, it will more than likely just be a filler segment. The talk right now is that he will be teamed up with Ryback, and the two of them will face Big Show and Kane in a tag team match.

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.
