Santino Marella
While they have been given two televised matches on Monday Night Raw this month, management does not view the Santino Marella and Fandango feud as anything relevant. The two of them are just there to help put Summer Rae and Emma over. There is very little to no chance that Marella and Fandango will get to take this feud to a pay per view.

It appears that WWE will be using Emma in a comedic role on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. She has already been paired with Santino Marella, and that is expected to continue for the next several months. The focal point for the company is still Total Divas, so this was a way to get her television time each week.

In order to fill up the arena, WWE is giving away tickets to Wrestlemania 30. Santino Marella and Emma, who have been working together on Monday Night Raw over the past several weeks, were sent around New Orleans to hand them out to lucky fans. WWE is even promoting it through YouTube, in order to drum up even more excitement for the pay per view.

Emma
Since Santino Marella was not on hand at the WWE live event in Corpus Christi, Dolph Ziggler was chosen as his replacement, teaming up with Emma to beat Fandango and Summer Rae in a mixed tag team match. No word yet on why Marella was absent, but this does not appear to be a permanent change in the story line.

Last year, Santino Marella opened up his own wrestling school. He managed to pick up several trainees since that time. In fact, he has enough performers, where he is now running wrestling shows from the facility gym that he built. A couple of weeks ago, the former WWE Intercontinental Champion was able to draw a decent crowd.

Back in 1996, Arnold Schwartzenegger had a surprising Christmas hit movie called Jingle All The Way, which is still shown every year on television. WWE Studios has secured the rights to the sequel and will begin production soon. The company has tabbed Santino Marella, a comedic performer on Monday Night Raw, as a lead character.

January 30, 2011
AJ Lee
Since AJ Lee is taking some time off, WWE needed to find a challenge for Paige and the Divas championship. Management has opted to go with Tamina Snuka, who is expected to be the challenger at Extreme Rules 2014. WWE has been high on Tamina for quite some time now, and they have been looking at ways to reward her.
April 17, 2014
Batista
Even though Daniel Bryan and John Cena are both expected to work their respective matches at the pay per view, Extreme Rules 2014 will be built around a huge six man tag team match featuring Batista, Triple H, Randy Orton, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. WWE might even have Evolution and Shield closing out the show as well.
April 17, 2014
Christian
Initial plans for this past Monday Night Raw did not include a tournament to crown a new contender for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Management was originally expecting Christian to be able to come back and cash in his title shot. However, there were some bad news on the veteran performer, who has been recovering from yet another concussion, so WWE changed the plans.
April 17, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Since the title belt is being given more of a story line than it has been in a while, a lot of fans have been speculating as to who will win the tournament to determine a new challenger for Big E Langston and the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Right now, management is leaning towards Antonio Cesaro, who is in the midst of a big push.
April 16, 2014
Alberto Del Rio
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. However, management has changed their minds on that push, as evident by the fact that Del Rio lost to Rob Van Dam on Monday Night Raw this week.
April 16, 2014
Batista
After beating Triple H, Randy Orton and Batista at Wrestlemania 30 for the heavyweight championship, a lot of fans wondered who WWE will choose to work with Bryan in his first month as champion. As of right now, it looks like management is leaning heavily towards Kane to be his first major opponent. The two are expected to work Extreme Rules 2014 together.
April 15, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
With Antonio Cesaro branching off and aligning with Paul Heyman, rumors have it that WWE is looking for a replacement tag team partner for Jack Swagger. Zeb Colter even played up the story line through Twitter. There is a very good chance that the company repackages one of the current veterans on the roster who do not have a story line to work with.
April 15, 2014
Ashley Flair
One of the ideas being discussed right now is to have Ric Flair managing Ashley Flair in WWE NXT. With Paige being elevated to the main roster, management can now put more of the spotlight on Ashley, Sasha Banks and Bayley. Having the Nature Boy involved would help to increase interest from the audience, as he is still a beloved performer.
April 15, 2014
Bruiser Brody
Older wrestling fans took quite an interest in WWE inducting Carlos Colon into the hall of fame this year. Many were expecting to see some backstage heat incident taking place because there are still many people in the industry who blame Colon for his involvement in the murder of Bruiser Brody. Cooler heads prevailed, and the situation went pretty smoothly for WWE.
April 15, 2014
Dolph Ziggler
While there were talks about building a stable around Dolph Ziggler and Miz, two performers who have not been pushed as much as they used to be lately, those discussions have grown a bit dormant as of late. WWE has been focused on bringing up the developmental wrestlers from WWE NXT, and they have been occupied with the tribute show for Ultimate Warrior.
April 15, 2014
Sting
While an agreement has been reached between the two sides, it appears that Sting still has yet to sign the contract, wanting to make sure that he and his people go through the details of the arrangement with WWE very finely before making a commitment. One of the main issues is the amount of dates that Sting will have to work as an in ring performer. He will not be wrestling much for WWE.
April 15, 2014
Triple H
There has been a bit of a shift in philosophy backstage with Triple H taking over more of the power from Vince McMahon, as the former world heavyweight champion is more inclined to respond to internet wrestling fans by taking jabs through the story lines. For years, McMahon has long avoided any connection with fans online, but HHH likes sending messages to people who complain.
April 14, 2014
Xavier Woods
While they occasionally worked together over the past year, rumors have it that WWE is trying to downplay the on screen relationship between Xavier Woods and the Funkadactyls. Management feels that the girls are over with the audience thanks to their role on Total Divas. They're going to be utilized more as in ring performers than just a dancing side show routine.
April 14, 2014
Bruno Sammartino
Rumors have it that Triple H is the main driving force behind Bruno Sammartino staying involved with WWE. The company already has received his biggest marketing contributions when he was inducted into the hall of fame, but since HHH is a big fan of Sammartino, the two sides are maintaining a working relationship. Sammartino was at Wrestlemania 30 weekend, even though he was not featured on screen.
April 14, 2014
Christopher Daniels
While rumors have persisted for months now that he was going to be leaving the company once his contract expires, there are talks that Christopher Daniels could be sticking around with TNA. Some are under the belief that a new contract has been reached, as he is going to be challenging for the X Division Championship against Seiya Sanada in Japan later on this week.
April 14, 2014
Antonio Cesaro
Even though Conor OBrian and Rick Victor received a lousy reaction from WWE fans at a live event last month in New York City, management still believes in them. Rumors have it that the Ascension could be brought up to the main roster in the coming weeks. The two of them could be utilized as replacements for Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro in the tag team division.
April 14, 2014
Bobby Roode
If TNA decides to keep the belt on Eric Young for the long term, an idea which is being tossed around backstage because of his marketing value at the moment, then management is going to push Bobby Roode up as a challenger for the world heavyweight championship. There are still talks of Brutus Magnus recapturing the belt at TNA Sacrifice 2014.
April 14, 2014
Heath Slater
Since the company needs room for all the new stars that they are bringing up from the developmental program, WWE is expected to allow several of the veteran performers to leave the company soon. The belief is that Heath Slater will be allowed to walk once his contract expires. The 3MB member has expressed frustration backstage over not receiving a push.
April 14, 2014
Low Ki
Rumors are floating around right now that Low Ki could be making his return to TNA in the near future. The former X Division Champion contemplated retirement not too long ago, but he had a change of heart apparently. Low Ki has a close relationship with Samoa Joe and MVP, so that have played a part in his potential return to TNA.
April 13, 2014
Undertaker
When Vince McMahon decided to end the legendary winning streak at Wrestlemania 30, he knew it would be a tricky situation to pull off. WWE officials were said to be quite disappointed with how things turned out. They managed to shock the audience like they wanted to. However, they were hoping for a much better send off for Undertaker from the fans.
