If you are one of those WWE fans that have been hoping that UFC clears Ronda Rousey so that she can finally work a match at Wrestlemania, then you might be out of luck. During a recent interview, Dana White flat out stated that Ronda has already done her last segment in professional wrestling. He understandably does not want to lose one of his biggest draws, especially since the company is lacking a bit in star power as of late.

It is being said that Dana White was not initially comfortable with the idea of Ronda Rousey doing an in ring segment at Wrestlemania.

Prior to Wrestlemania taking place, there were heavy talks about Finn Balor being promoted to the main roster. WWE still intends on doing that. However, they have decided to hold off for the time being because they did not want to take attention away from Adrian Neville, who recently made his debut on Monday Night Raw. One of the stipulations of signing Balor was that he would not be stuck in NXT for too long of a period.

Management was forced to change plans at the last minute. They pushed Naomi, even though the front office was not fully behind her.

Since he is still injured, Jey Uso was told by WWE to stay home during the tour of Europe. They feel that it would be a better use of his time to get better instead of being protected during tag team matches. He was written off early at Wrestlemania, but management only made him work the match because it was the biggest pay per view of the year. Jimmy Uso is currently working as a singles performer on the tour.

Poffo said that Sandow did not steal his gimmick. He is fine with it.
