Since WWE wanted his debut to be a big deal, Shinsuke Nakamura has now been booked for a big match against Sami Zayn, an experienced performer that had spent years honing his craft in ROH. The two of them will be battling it out at a special NXT event in Dallas during Wrestlemania 32 weekend. Triple H wants to keep the momentum rolling for the developmental brand, so expect Nakamura and Zayn to be given plenty of time to work.

As many people had predicted, Triple H was the final entrant in the Royal Rumble tonight. After eliminating Roman Reigns, the reigning WWE Heavyweight Champion, HHH battled it out with Dean Ambrose, whom the live Orlando audience was totally behind. After some entertaining spots, HHH managed to flip Ambrose over the ropes, thus becoming the brand new champion and earning a spot in the main event of Wrestlemania.

While his knee surgery was a success, WWE is still expecting Seth Rollins to miss out on Wrestlemania. That means that they need to find a new opponent for Triple H to work with. The two of them were originally scheduled for a match, with Rollins doing a baby face turn at some point in time. Plans were in place for him to break away from the Authority after dropping the belt to Roman Reigns. The injury changed everything.

When he worked his Wrestlemania match against Triple H, Sting made a request to management. He wanted Charles Robinson, whom he was very familiar with from their time together in WCW, to be the referee. WWE gladly obliged. It is interesting to note that when he worked his title match at Night of Champions against Seth Rollins, Robinson was not the referee for the match.

There is some concern within WWE over the roles that Triple H has been giving himself. Even though he was the right guy for the part because of his in ring abilities and name value, some questioned if he should have been the one to work with Sting in his debut match. HHH is also penciled in to work with The Rock at Wrestlemania, so a decent amount of people are going to silently accuse him of putting himself in the biggest spotlight.

As of right now, WWE still has The Rock penciled in for a big time match against Triple H at Wrestlemania. The reason why HHH is the opponent as opposed to someone like Brock Lesnar or even Seth Rollins is because management is really pushing to get Ronda Rousey to make an appearance at the pay per view. UFC won't allow her to wrestle, but they might be convinced to let her do an appearance at ringside.

The dream house that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon want to build might end up being bigger than a Wrestlemania venue, it seems. Stephanie has once again sold off shares. This time, she has sold off 14,000 of them, which brought in $2,615,000. She has been systematically selling off her ownership in WWE over the past year, in order to put money into her bank accounts.

To promote the upcoming Terminator movie in Mexico, producers opted to sign a deal with Rey Mysterio, one of the more beloved performers south of the border. Much like what was done with Triple H at Wrestlemania, Mysterio was given a similar theme to come out to at a recent AAA live event. Some said that it was better than what HHH had.
