BoD Daily Update RAW Preview

HHH vs. Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 32?

Right now, there is an idea being pitched in which HHH abuses his power an awards himself a title match against Reigns, while also forcing Reigns to face the winner of the Royal Rumble match in a separate bout on the card with the idea that Reigns would be forced to overcome the odds by wrestling twice on the same show.

Two Ring of Honor Stars Depart the Company

Both Maria Kanellis and Mike Bennett have left the company. They finished their tenure with RoH after Saturday’s TV tapings. Bennett’s partner, Matt Taven, is contracted with RoH until either March or April of 2016.
