Backstage news from Monday Night Raw in Lafayette, LA…
There continues to be a lot of discussion about what to do with Brock Lesnar. While almost everyone has him holding the WWE World Heavyweight Championship until Wrestlemania, there have been more than a few people that have voiced their concern. These people believe a part-time champion isn't working and point to WWE already having to add extra dates to his contract at a premium price just to keep him on television. Further, they don't have anyone for him to work after John Cena.
Some feel the best course of action at Night of Champions would be for Cena to go over Lesnar and then for Seth Rollins to cash in. That scenario is met with equal criticism, with critics thinking it would be downright foolish to take the belt off Lesnar so soon after creating their first legitimate monster in many years.
Cody Rhodes tweaked his ankle on Raw but it wasn't serious and he worked Tuesday.
The stuff between Bray Wyatt and Big Show was "thrown together" because WWE doesn't have anything for either guy. There is developing concern that Bray is lost in the shuffle and they're going to have to do something about it. At this point, a babyface turn isn't out of the question.
While Triple H continues to tease NXT as its own brand capable of being the next WCW, I'm told a lot of the company's top developmental prospects could be called up sooner rather than later. That includes Hideo Itami and Prince Devitt.
