To give you even more of an idea of just how bad things were becoming for her, AJ Lee left WWE despite being in line for a push. She was supposed to have started a feud with Nikki Bella after Wrestlemania, and there was a very good chance that she would have captured the Divas Championship. Management was forced to change plans at the last minute. They pushed Naomi, even though the front office was not fully behind her.

Reports have surfaced that many of the stars in WWE are rather upset with fans at the moment. They are upset that the vocal ones have successfully manage to rob Roman Reigns of his big opportunity at Wrestlemania.

Despite the new contract signed by Brock Lesnar, the sports books are still listing Roman Reigns as the favorite to win the main event of Wrestlemania. Their belief is that WWE has already pulled the trigger on his superstar push, so they are just going to go through with it. The front office can always put the heavyweight championship belt back around the waist of Lesnar at a later date. Reigns is a -210 odd, while Lesnar is +160.

When it was announced that Madusa was going to be inducted into the WWE hall of fame during Wrestlemania, the belief was that the front office was going to choose one of the current divas to do the honor. The speculations turned out to be true, as the company has now revealed that Natalya has been chosen for the part. Some were pushing for Paul Heyman to do the speech since he is a great talker and the two of them have history in WCW.

As of this very moment, it looks like WWE has Adrian Neville penciled in for a promotion to the main roster. The way they're going to do this is by having him winning the NXT tournament and earning a spot in the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal. The front office feels that it would be a good way to introduce him to their mainstream fans. There is even a slight chance that he might be given the win at Wrestlemania as a way to springboard his push.

Wrestlemania is basically considered the end of the season for WWE, so the front office likes to bring up some fresh faces from NXT to replenish the roster after the big pay per view. Speculations are already surfacing. A potential name on the chopping block is Big E Langston. He is an underrated performer, but management has already placed the glass ceiling over him, it seems. Not even a recommendation from John Cena was enough to help give him a push.

As expected, WWE is pushing hard for Brock Lesnar to sign a contract extension before his current deal expires. Management definitely does not want him to hit free agency because that means that a major bidding war will take place. UFC and Bellator are already said to be interested in bringing the former world heavyweight champion back into the world of mixed martial arts. Vince McMahon really wants his champion under a new contract before Wrestlemania.

In case you still cannot see that the Ascension are being demoted greatly by WWE, then take a look at the Wrestlemania card. Management wanted to have four teams competing for the tag team championship. Since they are so unimpressed with Viktor and Konnor, they opted to push Los Matadores instead. Diego and Fernando have been rarely used over the last year. They only made sporadic appearances with El Torito.

As of right now, it looks as if Damien Sandow will split from The Miz at Wrestlemania during the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal. A feud between the two is expected to ensue. While Sandow will be receiving some sort of a push because management was aware of the reaction that he was receiving from the audience, very few expect WWE to push him very far up the ladder. The belief is that Sandow will not get too close to the main event.
