Aside from half hearted programs with Sin Cara and Rey Mysterio, Alberto Del Rio really has not been given a full program by WWE to work with since wrestling John Cena at Survivor Series 2013. However, the feeling backstage is that Del Rio is assured a spot at Wrestlemania 30 to draw in the Spanish media.
It is now being said that Vince McMahon made an appearance in the arena after the Survivor Series went off the air because he wanted to test the audience to see how they would react to his upcoming return.
Prior to the Survivor Series, there were talks of turning Big E Langston back into a heel and having him challenge John Cena for the World Heavyweight Championship.
After being sent home early from the European tour because of chest pains, Dean Malenko returned to work backstage for WWE last night at the Survivor Series.
The goal all along for the Survivor Series was to feature Roman Reigns and make him appear more like a main event level performer, which is why the main reason WWE put together that tag team match.
Since he made a cameo appearance during a backstage segment at the Survivor Series, speculations have arisen about John Laurinaitis making his return to WWE television, but the former on screen general manager is not scheduled to do so anytime soon.
Word going around is that despite doing the tease between John Cena and Randy Orton at the end of the Survivor Series last night, the two of them are not expected to feud until Wrestlemania.
Randy Orton predictably defeated the Big Show to retain the WWE Heavyweight Championship at the Survivor Series. He was able to hit the RKO after Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and Kane provided the distraction by coming out to the ramp.
After a match filled with crowd pleasing signature spots, CM Punk and Daniel Bryan picked up the win over Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. Bryan blasted Rowan with the running knee, as Punk pinned Harper after the Go 2 Sleep finisher.
Many were predicting John Cena to successfully defend the World title against Alberto Del Rio at Survivor Series, and WWE did not stray from that. Cena dodged the arm breaker and hit the Attitude Adjustment for the pin fall victory.
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.
The neck issues for Santino Marella had become quite a problem for him. The WWE star actually underwent surgery to correct the problem. He is expected back with the company down the line, and he's definitely not going to be able to work Royal Rumble 2014.
For those of you that are wonderinng where he has been lately, Santino Marella has been taken off the road by WWE because of a neck injury. The former Intercontinental Champion recently signed a contract extension with the company, despite opening up his own wrestling school.
In order to give him a little bit of momentum heading into the Survivor Series, Alberto Del Rio was given a victory over Santino Marella on WWE Main Event this week.
