Lots of talk regarding Ziggler. As things stand, the reason they are already going to the Ziggler/Langston problems is not because they are looking at turning Langston, but turning Ziggler. Vince has been changing his mind back and forth on Ziggler as a face, but it seems it?s more when and not if. A lot of people in the company, particularly the Heyman disciples who listen to his instincts as gospel, think Ziggler will take off huge as a face when the call is made. The fact Ziggler is already super popular in New York influences Vince.

He'll have to remember to change his Twitter username from @HEELZiggler to @FACEZiggler. :p

Huh, never knew that.

There's been a lot of speculation as to why Alberto Del Rio was made World Heavyweight Champion, but the real story behind the scenes is that Big Show could not come to terms with WWE on a new contract. Since Big Show's contract was running out, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon made the decision to crown Del Rio the new champion. At the time of the taping in Miami, that was actually considered potentially to be Big Show's last match in WWE. Later in the week, the company and Big Show came to terms, and he hasn't missed any shows.

We heard from one source on the writing team that the company was very angry the negotiations went all the way to the breaking point, but now that Del Rio has been crowned champion "the plans have changed, as Del Rio is the focus of the show going forward."

I had the feeling Del Rio was going to be a transitional champion; I'm still going to hold on to that feeling. I bet he'll lose it before or at WrestleMania to either Sheamus or Randy Orton.

Yes, it appears that the long-running TNA/WWE talent interference lawsuit is now over, with PWTorch reporting that America's No. 2 promotion filed the paperwork this past Monday to dismiss the lawsuit.

The lawsuit, which was announced in May of last year, stemmed from allegations byTNA that WWE used confidential contract information provided by ex-employee BrianWittenstein to outsmart and outmaneuver them on various dealings (PWInsider wrote a lengthy and detailed report on the lawsuit here).

Notably, Ric Flair, whose name was specifically mentioned in the court documents, finally returned to WWE on Monday, apparently to begin a new program with The Mizand Antonio Cesaro. He had previously made a one-off guest appearance for the company at December's Slammy Awards.

No doubt Flair would have liked to return to the company a lot sooner, but asWrestlingInc via F4Wonline noted in October, WWE had sworn off signing him, feeling it would give the other side ample evidence against them to use in court.

Of course, the path still isn't totally clear. Flair is set to go off to Japan later this month, teaming with Keiji Mutoh to take on Tatsumi Fujinami and Seiya Sanada in an extremely high-profile match (via PWTorch).

Presumably, he'll be able to sign any deal he wants after that is finished. With his great track record as a draw, WWE will be eager to get him back. As CageSideSeats notes, his segment with Miz and Antonio Cesaro was, by far, the highest rated segment of the show, even beating Rock's concert and confrontation with CM Punk at the end.

Matt Morgan is another name that suffered due to the litigation. WrestlincInc noted that WWE was interested in Morgan after his TNA contract expired in the summer of last year, but the lawsuit forced them to hold off. Morgan later returned to TNA.

Thankfully, with the lawsuit over, wrestlers in the U.S looked to have regained their leverage once again.

According to the Wrestling Observer, an early script for WWE's Royal Rumble PPV has found its way online, and it provides insight into match times, the card order, and more. It's very likely since this script has leaked that WWE will make changes, however this is what appears to be planned at this point:

-Kaitlyn will defend the WWE Divas Championship. The bout has been allotted 10 minutes.

-The Tag Team Title match between Team Hell No and Team Rhodes Scholars has also been allotted 10 minutes.

-The Big Show vs Alberto Del Rio match has been given 20 minutes, while The Rock vs CM Punk has been given a half hour.

-The Royal Rumble match is currently scheduled to go on last, and as we reported earlier The Rock vs CM Punk will take place before it as a co-main event.

^ I had seen that earlier in the week, they gave the same times and 70 minutes alloted to the RR Match. Thats slightly over 2.5 hrs, so I bet Rock/Punk would get the overflow time.

They were in a 6-man tag team match on SmackDown this week against Team Rhodes Scholars and Wade Barrett. Team Hell No wanted to celebrate with a group hug. :/

That Kane/Bryan storyline is so cringe, what the hell have they done to Kane. They gave him a mask back and turned him into a red version of what Randy's hugging a few posts up ^^
