Backstage News on Rumble & Mania Plans, Morrison
- At least some people within WWE expect that John Morrison will return to the company eventually. While Morrison is currently focusing on his acting career, it’s said that neither WWE or TNA is interested in his girlfriend Melina so he’s more likely to end up with the company that will pay him more money.
- With WrestleMania 29 discussions happening within WWE, there is now talk of doing Randy Orton vs. Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Title next year.
Officials are actually trying harder than usual to keep WrestleMania plans for Brock Lesnar, The Rock, John Cena, CM Punk, Triple H and The Undertaker quiet because the idea is they will build the Royal Rumble up into a big show where a lot of different angles will begin or at least everything will fall into place then.
As noted, Rey Mysterio vs. Sin Cara is a likely match. We also noted that Ryback vs. The Undertaker has been discussed a Streak vs. Streak build. Apparently this is a Vince McMahon idea. Other possible opponents for The Undertaker include Brock Lesnar and Triple H. This is unlikely but Punk vs. Taker was at least suggested internally.
