Despite the new contract signed by Brock Lesnar, the sports books are still listing Roman Reigns as the favorite to win the main event of Wrestlemania. Their belief is that WWE has already pulled the trigger on his superstar push, so they are just going to go through with it. The front office can always put the heavyweight championship belt back around the waist of Lesnar at a later date. Reigns is a -210 odd, while Lesnar is +160.

An interesting comparison was made recently in regards to how WWE is using Daniel Bryan and Roman Reigns. Someone stated that it was like in 1994 when fans wanted Bret Hart to be pushed, but management went with Kevin Nash instead. Hart himself responded to the comparison by saying that he really wanted Nash to do well because they were friends, but he felt that the front office should have given Nash another year to be built up.

During an interview with Great North Wrestling, Dan Severn revealed the interesting reason why he opted to walk away from WWE. He stated that management approached him about an idea where he would have the numbers 666 tattooed on his forehead. Severn would then have been utilized as a disciple of the Undertaker. For religious reasons, he refused. The front office then threatened to push him down the ladder, so he left the company.

A person decided to hack the Twitter account of Antonio Cesaro earlier today, and it led to some pretty interesting fake posts. The person made it seem that Cesaro was upset with WWE for not pushing him, which might actually be the case. The hacker went a bit over the line, however, when he made it seem like Cesaro was hoping that Vince McMahon would get cancer as a punishment for not giving him the main event push he deserves.

However, the latest reports are suggesting that it could have been the typical backstage politics that kept him from being given bigger pushes.

Out of all the ECW names that were rumored for the Royal Rumble this past weekend, a name that was heavily pushed backstage was the Blue Meanie. A lot of people in the company feel that he was popular enough to receive a very warm ovation from the heavily opinionated Philadelphia crowd. It would have also made sense because the former bWo member was going to be hosting a DVD release with Stevie Richards for WWE in the coming weeks.

Anyone that has been paying attention to NXT over the last couple of weeks will be able to tell you that Kevin Owens is going to be receiving a big push from management. It is also going to be a quick one, as they are not making him move through the card like they usually do. Owens is already working a main event program with Sami Zayn, and there are talks that Adrian Neville could be thrown into the mix to make the program even more interesting.

If you're a WWE fan that is observant, you already noticed that Sting has been given a new on screen nickname by the commentators and wrestlers. Management has been insistent on their performers that they push the Vigilante nickname as much as possible. Management wants to be able to apply various trademarks and copyrights to the gimmick, so that they can make as much profit off of merchandising as they can while the legend is around.
