One of the ideas floating around backstage in WWE right now is to have Sheamus making his much anticipated and much promoted return during the Intercontinental Championship ladder match at Wrestlemania. He would initially do so as a baby face before getting the fans to turn on him by costing Daniel Bryan the match. A title feud between the two would then take place for the next month or so.

Tonight was supposed to have been the night where Rey Mysterio makes his much anticipated in ring return to AAA. He was scheduled to team up with the original Sin Cara in a tag team match. Unfortunately, though, fans will simply have to wait another 24 hours to see that. The event was delayed due to severe rainstorms in Guadalajara. For what it is worth, the meteorologists are forecasting another day of rain on Tuesday.

An interesting idea is being tossed around right now, and if implemented, it could shatter pay per view records for UFC. CM Punk is already in the promotion and training for his first fight. Brock Lesnar is finishing off his contract with WWE in a couple of weeks and has eyes on a return to mixed martial arts. If the promotion were to put the debut fight for Punk and the return fight for Lesnar on the same card, that would draw tremendous interest.

The next series of Impact Wrestling episodes being taped in May should be interesting ones. There are talks that Elijah Burke could be making his return to TNA during that point in time. He even teased it publicly on social media. Burke left the company more than two years ago and has remained active on the independent wrestling circuit. Despite being one of the best talkers in the business, WWE showed no interest in bringing him back on board.

Things are still very much up in the air for Alex Riley right now. As many of you already know, he is quite upset with WWE for pulling the rug on his return to the ring at the Royal Rumble. However, a release from his contract has yet to be granted. Management also does not appear to have much interest in him returning full time as an in ring performer. His broadcasting duties have been relieved by the returning David Otunga already.

Since he is only contractually required to work a couple of nights, fans have been trying to predict when Sting would make another appearance in WWE. As of right now, the most likely return would be at Fast Lane next month. It was reported that the legendary WCW performer was initially scheduled for Monday Night Raw this week, but a big snow storm prevented that from happening. A confrontation with Triple H is expected.

Prior to the Royal Rumble, there was a lot of speculations that Alex Riley was going to be making his return on television as an in ring performer for the evening. Reports had it that WWE pulled him from his broadcasting duties, so that he would be free to work the battle royal as a mystery entrant. Riley was definitely backstage in Philadelphia, but management opted to remove him from the match because plans were being changed all night.

It looks like Darren Young will be making his return to Monday Night Raw and Smackdown very soon. Now that he has recovered from his injury, WWE is testing him out physically. Young worked a live event in Canada over the weekend. No word yet on how he will be utilized upon returning, but there were rumors not too long ago that he was going to be revealed as the person behind the bunny that has been hanging out and teaming with Adam Rose.
