Laurinaitis/Long Feud

Current creative plans call for John Laurinaitis' feud with Theodore Long, for full control of both brands, to culminate with a winner takes all match at WrestleMania 28.

According to reports, this match will replace Money In The Bank in getting a number of superstars involved in the match. Laurinaitis would be the captain of a team of heel WWE stars against a babyface team captained by Long at the pay-per-view, with the winning captain becoming General Manager of both Raw and SmackDown.

Backstage Heat On Rey Mysterio

As previously reported, Rey Mysterio visited backstage at last week's Raw in San Diego, California, and reports are indicating that WWE brass had negative words to say regarding the injured superstar. Reports are noting that the negativity has stemmed from difficult contract negotiations with Mysterio, as well as him not returning from injury as quickly as WWE would like.
