The Rabblecast

Join show host, Hernandez as he gives a rundown of the upcoming WWE Wrestlemania 31 card. The build to this year's Wrestlemania has not been an easy journey for the WWE. In fact, many critics have already written this year's Wrestlemania off for being too predictable. Well, that all changed when WWE and Brock Lesnar announced that the two have come to a new agreement keeping Brock Lesnar in the WWE after Wrestlemania 31. What will happen now? Who will leave Wrestlemania a champion? Will leave defeated?

Spring is in the air, as is the hype for Wrestlemania 31! WWE is counting down to their final days before their biggest event of the year. What will change between now and then? Can anything else be added to the already packed card? Time will tell as we march closer and closer to "Showcase of the Immortals".

Although the majority of the attention has been given to WWE and their annual event, there are a number of other companies trying their best to take a slice of the wrestling pie that same weekend. Companies, like Ring of Honor, Evolve, and other smaller promotions. Is there such a thing as too much wrestling in one weekend?

WWE's developmental center, NXT has gained a lot of attention since its launch. It is the staging ground for the "future" of the WWE. On more than a few occasions there have been concerns of just how that future was being trained. A memo released by former NXT developmental wrestler, Austin Matelson (aka Austin Draven and Judas Devlin) to the WWE details some of the training conditions that he claims took place. He alleged that he participated in drills that "were hazardous to our safety," an unprofessional work environment, the use of homophobic slurs and other derogatory comments.

And now we have recently learned that Bill DeMott(aka Hugh Morris in the WCW) has stepped down as head NXT trainer after an investigation by the WWE was unable to confirm any of the allegations. What does this mean for NXT? Who will take over as the new head trainer?
