Since WWE has been putting on a full court press on trying to get Ronda Rousey to work a match at Wrestlemania, the belief is that someone from the company will be there in person when she has her next fight. Things aren't as certain since the event is going to be taking place in Brazil. Triple H is unlikely to attend since he spends his weekends on the road, directing the live events. Stephanie McMahon might be able to make it, though.

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.

The changing of the guard is definitely happening.

One of the reasons why Vince McMahon is starting to become a big fan of NXT is the fact that the brand was able to sell out tickets to a live event without needing to promote the matches. That means that fans are simply showing up because they support the brand in whole. WWE live events usually reveal the main event matches that will be taking place on the card.

Since the company badly wanted to bring him on board, there were several stipulations that Sting required from WWE. One of them was not on the contract, but the front office gave it to him anyways because they wanted him to be as comfortable as possible.
