Thanks to Ranjit Chahal for his help with some of the following newsbits:
— In March, Rosita tried out for WWE, but no signing was announced. It is believed that the company didn’t move forward with things because they were occupied with WrestleMania 29. With the new developmental training center being launched, the company is said to be interested in signing a lot of people, so Rosita could still be picked up this summer.
— WWE was rumored to be calling Bray Wyatt up from developmental shortly after Wrestlemania 29. However, it appears that those plans were placed on hold as management scrambled to put together the card for Extreme Rules after the departure of The Rock. Wyatt and a couple of other NXT performers are still expected to be called up soon.
— Since Wade Barrett is receiving a warm reception from the European crowd, Justin Gabriel was forced to turn heel during a WWE live event. When the match started, both sides stuck to their traditional role. However, they adapted halfway through the match to the crowd reaction, and Gabriel finished the match as the heel.
