While his knee surgery was a success, WWE is still expecting Seth Rollins to miss out on Wrestlemania. That means that they need to find a new opponent for Triple H to work with. The two of them were originally scheduled for a match, with Rollins doing a baby face turn at some point in time. Plans were in place for him to break away from the Authority after dropping the belt to Roman Reigns. The injury changed everything.

With the devastating loss of Seth Rollins, WWE has been forced to make changes to their Wrestlemania lineup. The former world heavyweight champion was scheduled for one of the main event slots. One of the ideas that has been tossed around backstage is to finally pull that trigger on a match between John Cena and Undertaker, especially since the latter is running out of performers that he can work with.

When he worked his Wrestlemania match against Triple H, Sting made a request to management. He wanted Charles Robinson, whom he was very familiar with from their time together in WCW, to be the referee. WWE gladly obliged. It is interesting to note that when he worked his title match at Night of Champions against Seth Rollins, Robinson was not the referee for the match.

Initially, the belief was that we would not see Sting again until Wrestlemania rolls around, especially since he suffered some injuries while working a title match against Seth Rollins. Rumors are now floating around that the legendary WCW star might be brought in for the Royal Rumble. WWE is especially concerned with drastically declining numbers, so his presence at the pay per view might be of some assistance.

As of right now, WWE still has The Rock penciled in for a big time match against Triple H at Wrestlemania. The reason why HHH is the opponent as opposed to someone like Brock Lesnar or even Seth Rollins is because management is really pushing to get Ronda Rousey to make an appearance at the pay per view. UFC won't allow her to wrestle, but they might be convinced to let her do an appearance at ringside.

While his first choice remains an epic rematch against Dwayne Johnson at the Wrestlemania taking place in Dallas next year, Triple H has a secondary plan in case the world famous actor is not available. Seeds have been planted for an eventual feud between HHH and his protege Seth Rollins, whose character was hand chosen by the on screen COO to hold the world heavyweight championship. A slow rift will be built up over the upcoming months.

While it is being said that the decision was not a last minute one, Seth Rollins was not aware of the plans when Wrestlemania started. In fact, he didn't even know what was to come while he was doing the job for Randy Orton. Management informed him of their decision during the segment with Ronda Rousey. That was when everyone involved was sent into a room with Michael Hayes to go over the revised finish of the match.

In a very logical move, WWE has decided to do a Wrestlemania rematch between Randy Orton and Seth Rollins at Extreme Rules. This time, however, the world heavyweight championship will be on the line. Management set this up at the previous pay per view by having Orton defeating Rollins before the latter went to cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase on Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar in the main event.

When it comes to keeping secrets, Zahra Schreiber might not win any world championships. The NXT developmental posted a message on social media about traveling between California, New York and Florida in a short period of time. It happens to be the same schedule that Seth Rollins was on during Wrestlemania week. The two of them were rumored to be a couple. Something blatant like this only adds more fuel to the fire.

To promote the brand that he is currently in charge of, Triple H noted that all but one match at Wrestlemania featured someone that trained at NXT. Antonio Cesaro, Luke Harper, Seth Rollins, Paige, Rusev, Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns and several WWE stars in the Andre the Giant battle royal all went through the developmental program. The only match that did not feature someone from there was the one between HHH and Sting.
