In a rather interesting interview with the Sun, Wade Barrett revealed that he really wants WWE to put him in the tag team division. The King of the Ring feels that he really works well with others, so he wants to see just how far he can go in that division. Barrett is not in line for a huge push as a singles performer, so this might be his way of letting the front office know that he is willing to take a consolation prize.

With so much more of the spotlight being given to the divas in WWE, it is rather interesting to note that Emma has not received any of the love. That does not look to change in the near future, as management simply views her as a filler right now. Though she is talented, there is not much support backstage to garner a nice push for the gal from Australia.

While the topic has not been brought up much lately, WWE is still interested in using Sting at Summerslam. They just have not been able to figure out how they want to make that happen. There are those backstage that want to save him for Wrestlemania, but there are others who are pushing to bring him back because they feel that the former world heavyweight champion can be utilized to help increase the amount of subscribers that they have.

Much of the internet wrestling community is curious as to the booking style that Billy Corgan is going to be bringing to TNA. He more than likely has his favorites in mind, and they will be receiving a nice push. That could potentially move several of the upper tier guys down the ladder a bit. The creative department had been praised for rotating performers in and out of the main event scene to keep it fresh, so it will be interesting to see if Corgan does that as well.

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.

When Bobby Lashley left WWE, a lot of fans were left wondering why he was never given the chance to be the top star. Some even suggested that racism was a factor. However, the latest reports are suggesting that it could have been the typical backstage politics that kept him from being given bigger pushes. It is being said that Triple H and Shawn Michaels were burying Lashley in front of management as early as his tryouts.

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.
