Stephanie McMahon Returning To WWE TV
We’re told Paul Heyman has been pushing hard to get Stephanie McMahon involved in the Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar program. Nothing has been decided yet as to her level of involvement, if any, but she has been receptive to the idea.
While Heyman and Stephanie haven’t gotten along well at all in the past, both feel it would just add to the dynamic of Triple H with Stephanie facing Lesnar with Heyman.
Celebrity Surge For Wrestlemania 29
WWE has made a late surge for celebrity involvement at this year’s Wrestlemania 29. On Thursday, the company announced both Sean “Diddy” Combs and Maria Menounos. A deal was finalized on Monday for Arnold Schwarzenegger to induct Bruno Sammartino into the WWE Hall of Fame.
While Wrestlemania traditionally features celebrity tie-ins, there had some been some back and forth about how much celebrity involvement was needed with both The Rock and Brock Lesnar on the show. While WWE has been negotiating with Arnold for weeks, we’re told the acquisition of Diddy was seen as more of a panic move to assure the show had a musical performance by a celebrity.
