Reports going around state that Rob Van Dam finished up his latest stint with WWE during the kickoff match at Summerslam 2014.

El Torito
For those of you that did not watch the Payback 2014 kickoff match, El Torito defeated Hornswoggle with a flying top rope moonsault. Hornswoggle had gotten distracted by thinking that he won after pulling off the mask. Afterwards, Hornswoggle was forced to sit in a barber chair while El Torito shaved his head.

In an action filled Wrestlemania 30 kickoff match, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso retained the WWE tag team championship by defeating Diego, Fernando, Curtis Axel, Ryback, Jack Swagger and Antonio Cesaro in a fatal four way elimination tag team bout.

Antonio Cesaro
Despite being thrown into the kickoff match at Wrestlemania 30, Antonio Cesaro is the choice for Mick Foley when it comes to being the guy that will be given the big spotlight on the next episode of Monday Night Raw. Generally, WWE considers this episode to be the start of the new season, so they try to elevate someone up the ladder that evening.

Antonio Cesaro
Rumor has it that there are several people backstage in WWE that are disappointed with how Antonio Cesaro is being utilized at Wrestlemania 30. Instead of being given a big singles match on the pay per view, he is working a kickoff match with Jack Swagger. It also features Jimmy Usu, Jey Uso, Fernando, Diego, Ryback and Curtis Axel.

Antonio Cesaro
Initially, the belief was that the tag team championships were going to be given some spotlight by WWE at their biggest pay per view of the year, but it has now been announced that Ryback, Curtis Axel, Fernando, Diego, Antonio Cesaro, Jack Swagger, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso are being moved to the Wrestlemania 30 kickoff match spot.
April 1, 2014
Andre the Giant
Since time constraints might be an issue, there were talks earlier this week of putting the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal as a kickoff match, but management wants to use it as a promotional vehicle, so it is now back on the main Wrestlemania 30 card. Many are expecting the segment to be heavily rushed, though.
March 19, 2014
Andre the Giant
While a lot of fans bought into the hype of the match since a legendary name was attached to it, WWE is viewing the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal as an afterthought.

He will be teaming with Goldust in a tag team match against Ryback and Curtis Axel.
February 19, 2014
Darren Young
In case you missed the announcement on Monday Night Raw this week, Darren Young and Titus ONeil will be having their grudge match on the main Elimination Chamber 2014 pay per view next Sunday night.
