Change on the way

We begin with news that one WWE Superstar is making a big change to his gimmick. Adam Rose took to social media last night to announce that he would no longer be performing with his famous Rosebuds entourage.

This is the biggest sign yet that the party loving character is heading towards a heel turn in the near future.

The call for a potential character change - possibly to his former persona, South African Leo Kruger - has grown since the E:60 documentary which followed Rose and his fellow wrestlers in their bid to achieve stardom.

Elimination Chamber

Meanwhile, in the ring, plans for the upcoming Elimination Chamber pay-per-view have become clearer after last night’s Raw broadcast.

First we were told that main roster newcomer Kevin Owens would be taking on John Cena, before it was announced that Seth Rollins would defend his World Heavyweight Championship against former Shield teammate Dean Ambrose.

Finally, last night’s show also saw Lana, the long-time partner of Rusev, leave behind the Bulgarian brute to team up with Dolph Ziggler. The split with Rusev looked inevitable after her role in his defeat to Cena on Sunday’s payback.

Just what she has planned with Dolph Ziggler, no one knows yet. One thing is for certain, though, Rusev isn't likely to take both his PPV defeat to Cena and the exit of Lana lying down.

The event, which returns after a year's hiatus, will take place in Corpus Christi on May 31st.
