- The original plan was for Samoa Joe to wrestle Seth Rollins at the Fastlane PPV on March 5 in Milwaukee, but with Rollins injury, there has been no word on whether Joe will still wrestle on that PPV or even who he may face at WrestleMania. As we have reported weeks ago, WWE’s idea was to push Joe heavily once as a top level superstar once he was called up.
- Neither Goldberg or Brock Lesnar is scheduled for the upcoming Raw on 2/13 in Las Vegas. Lesnar won’t be there due to the show being in Nevada where he is suspended whereas Goldberg was never scheduled. Some expected Goldberg to run-in during the “Festival of Friendship” segment but unless he is called late this week, that won’t be happening.
- Dana Warrior’s recent agreement with WWE allows the company to continue using the “Ultimate Warrior” name and likeliness in marketing as well as use the name for the “Ultimate Warrior Award.”
