Apparently, WWE has had a change of heart in regards to Jimmy Jacobs. Initially, they were going to have him writing NXT to prove his worth. However, his backers in the company were able to convince the decision makers to graduate him to the main roster instead. He will be writing content for both Monday Night Raw and Smackdown now. Jacobs is working his last match with ROH this week and will be hanging up the boots.

Last night, Nikki Bella cut a promo towards AJ Lee that was scheduled to be included in the next episode of Smackdown. However, there are talks that the Divas Champion went off script and took a verbal jab at AJ. She mentioned how AJ defended the title less times than Brock Lesnar did. That does not sound like something that WWE writers would script because the company does not want to make their heavyweight champion look bad.

As an effort to generate some last minute excitement for Wrestlemania, WWE has decided to put their top stars into a big tag team match. In the main event of Smackdown this week, John Cena will team up with Daniel Bryan, Roman Reigns and Mark Henry to take on Bray Wyatt, Big Show, Seth Rollins and Kane. The match could just end up in a big brawl at the end, so that they can promote the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal.

While it is certainly not very high on the priority list right now with Wrestlemania right around the corner, WWE has a bit of a dilemma when it comes to the Interrogation movie. Management normally promotes their films on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, but since Lana is involved, there is a fear that it might be a bit confusing to some of the audience members who see her solely as an evil Russian heel who talks for Rusev.

As many of you already know, wrestlers are required to work in NXT before they get a chance to work on the main roster in WWE. Apparently, the front office is trying that out with the creative department as well. Jimmy Jacobs is said to be leaving ROH, so he can start writing for the developmental program. There, he will work very closely with Triple H. If he does well, then he might start writing Monday Night Raw and Smackdown.

Vince McMahon caused a bit of an uproar with the internet wrestling community when he stated that Antonio Cesaro was missing something that prevented him from being elevated to the main event. In a recent interview, Daniel Bryan decided to defend Cesaro, stating that if the two of them were to work a lengthy match together on Smackdown, it would easily generate a huge reaction from WWE fans.

At a live event in Milwaukee over the weekend, Brad Maddox made his return to WWE. Often times, management likes to test things out at these events to gauge what the audience reaction would be before doing it on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown. Based on the lackluster reaction and the poor quality of the match, the front office has much to work on before doing the Maddox return on television.

With Wrestlemania being less than two weeks away, WWE might need to call an audible with one of the championship matches. Initially, the Usos were scheduled to be one of the teams that challenged Antonio Cesaro and Tyson Kidd for the tag team belts, but Jey Uso suffered some sort of shoulder injury during the latest episode of Smackdown. There is no timetable for his return yet. His brother Jimmy Uso worked live events by himself.
