-- Although plans several weeks ago called for Triple H to go over Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania, there have recently been talks of HBK costing Triple H the match. Triple H has told people close to him that he wanted to face HBK in his last match at WrestleMania.
-- On Twitter, Vince McMahon teased a big announcement for this Friday's WWE SmackDown broadcast. The belief right now is that it will involve Donald Trump and his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. No official word has been released yet, but it appears that Vince McMahon himself could be doing the honors in order to generate more interest from the media.
-- Speaking of the Hall of Fame, the USA Network will be airing a special on the WWE Hall of Fame induction ceremony next Tuesday night. Bruno Sammartino, Trish Stratus and Donald Trump are expected to be the only people featured during that show. Many backstage are upset that Mick Foley is being neglected by WWE.
