Lana may be splitting from Rusev in the near future, and apparently one high ranking executive sees her as the future face of the women in WWE. A major babyface run might just be coming for the “Ravishing Russian”. 

WWE is aware of how most wrestling fans (not Total Divas fans, but wrestling fans) view Eva Marie, and talk about her online. They are very aware, as is Eva Marie, and they are taking active steps to fix the problems as they still think she is a major part of the promotion going forward. 

Here is EVERYTHING WE KNOW about the upcoming WWE Payback PPV, including confirmed matches and tons of speculation on the final match card. 

And the 2015 King of the Ring winner is….? 

Daniel Bryan has been pulled from all future WWE live events. They have still not announced what is wrong with him, and when he may return, but that could very well be because they still don’t know yet. If he can’t return soon, it’s expected an announcement will be made at Payback. 

In what is definitely the greatest idea he’s ever had, Vince McMahon may have agreed to feature Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 32 as the company looks to break the all-time attendance record. 

If you’re still paying attention to pay-per-view numbers (14-15 months after the Network release), the buyrates for Royal Rumble, Fastlane and WrestleMania 31 are in. They also released their revenue numbers for quarter one

Minor update on Samoa Joe heading to WWE, whether or not he’ll go through NXT first, and meetings with Triple H to firm up plans for later this year.
