For the longest time now, fans have been trained to view Smackdown as a secondary show. That is going to be temporarily changing soon. The belief is that Vince McMahon is going to load up the show with big matches for the first few months after they move to the USA Network. There is a very good chance that John Cena is going to have to work on that show more frequently than normal. Undertaker and Brock Lesnar might even make appearances.

Kayfabe is still alive. Michelle McCool attended the hall of fame induction ceremony last night, but she did so without her husband. That is because WWE wanted to keep the Undertaker out of the public eye until Wrestlemania. The feeling is that it would produce a much greater reaction if that is the first moment that fans get a glimpse of the legendary performer. In the past, Mark Callaway has skipped the ceremony for the same reason.

That is because they are concerned that he might not be able to perform at Wrestlemania. Those concerns should be alleviated this year because the legendary performer is said to be in great shape. He generally kicks it up a notch when training for a WWE return.

Bad news for those of you that are still holding out hope that we will get to see the Undertaker before his high profile match against Bray Wyatt at Wrestlemania. WWE has no plans of doing that right now. The hope by management is that fans will subscribe to their online service to get a glimpse of the legendary performer since his big streak ending loss to Brock Lesnar at the pay per view last year. Giving him away for free is not something planned.

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.
