The "bromance" between Shane McMahon and The Miz is officially over. After their loss at FastLane, when Shane attacked both the Miz and his father, Shane has challenged the Miz to a match at WrestleMania.

This week in Orlando, Sean "X-Pac" Waltman and Scott Hall will be at the WWE Performance Center as guest trainers.

Next week, Kofi Kingston will compete in a Gauntlet match against Randy Orton, WWE United States Champion Samoa Joe, WWE SmackDown Live Tag Team Champions Sheamus and Cesaro, and Erick Rowan. If he defeats everyone, he will face Daniel Bryan for the WWE Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania.

After his firing from WWE, TJ Perkins will be in a Expo Lucha event in mid-August at San Diego City College Harry West Gymnasium.

Karl Anderson has denied that he and Luke Gallows are planning to leave WWE in September when their contracts expire. Perhaps, negotiations are going on right now?

Wouldnt be better to see Angle put a mid-carder over at Mania?, the company short on new Star's.

From what I've seen of the Ronda Rousey angles of late, it looks more like a badly written comedy, than a Pro-Wrestling angle. How many shows and movies, based on fictional pre-written storylines, pause, only to inform its audiance its all just a show. With the exception of movies such as Deadpool, and comedies that use it for gag's. The writing, characters and storylines, seem really schizophrenic, at least to somebody following it from the outside.
