With the devastating loss of Seth Rollins, WWE has been forced to make changes to their Wrestlemania lineup. The former world heavyweight champion was scheduled for one of the main event slots. One of the ideas that has been tossed around backstage is to finally pull that trigger on a match between John Cena and Undertaker, especially since the latter is running out of performers that he can work with.

Since WWE is very adamant against blood nowadays, there is a policy in place where performers get fined whenever they bleed during a match. Even though Undertaker and Brock Lesnar have a ton of backstage stroke in the company, the belief is that they will both be fined for their main event match at Hell in a Cell. Management has to set an example, so they cannot allow these two guys to get a pass.

While the internet wrestling community might have enjoyed the blood during the match between Undertaker and Brock Lesnar at Hell in a Cell, Vince McMahon and Kevin Dunn were definitely not amused. The two of them were said to be freaking out backstage at the gorilla position. McMahon is very adamant about blood since he does not want to risk alienating any of his sponsors and advertisers.

In a rather interesting tidbit, Savio Vega revealed that Undertaker absolutely hates cucumbers. He suggested that the hate might have actually been fear, saying that the fruit was the equivalent of Kryptonite to him. Vega also revealed that he has been involved in backstage pranks involving said fruit and the Phenom. That shows just how much backstage stroke that Vega had in WWE back then.

When it comes to television ratings, Vince McMahon is probably one of the most paranoid people in the entertainment industry. It is being said that he is going crazy backstage nowadays because WWE has seen a drop in their numbers. To combat this, the CEO is reaching into his pockets and bringing in the heavy hitters. Brock Lesnar and Undertaker are being added to several episodes of Monday Night Raw.

When it comes to being old school, Bray Wyatt was that well before he was born. His family has a long history of toughness. On Sunday afternoon, while preparing for his big match against Undertaker at Wrestlemania, Wyatt suffered a severe ankle sprain. It was so bad that he was having trouble just standing backstage. The medical team put him in a cast to help alleviate the pain. Despite that, though, he still went through with his performance.

While the majority of fans are hoping that Undertaker gets the win at Wrestlemania, there are those backstage in WWE that feel that it would be best for business if Bray Wyatt were to pick up the much needed victory, one that would give him enough momentum to head back into a main event scene that is set to feature a baby face champion in Roman Reigns. A loss for the Phenom would build anticipation for another return next year.
