Here are some news and notes:
Despite rumors going around, Vince McMahon has not changed his mind on the plans for the WrestleMania main event. As of now, per a report on Wrestling Observer Radio, the plan is still for Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar.
A couple of readers asked us about rumors about TJP being fired by WWE. I don’t know where those rumors got started but he is still under contract. I don’t know why he is not being used but it could just be that creative doesn’t have anything for him right now.
Matt Hardy is in full blown “Broken” mode on social media. As we first reported on Monday night, the belief within Impact Wrestling is that some sort of deal was worked out. It’s possible that Impact just decided that it was no longer worth keeping up the fight because they need to do everything to dig out of the hole they are in and bad publicity only hurts their company.
