- One of the reasons that WWE had Naomi win the Smackdown women’s title from Alexa Bliss is that she is from Orlando, FL – the site of WrestleMania 33. For publicity purposes, it makes a lot of sense to have a local talent hold the title for local news stories that will surely be published around WrestleMania.
- With Baron Corin being a “handpicked” star, the backstage speculation is that he will not only face Dean Ambrose for the Intercontinental Title at WrestleMania 33, but he will win the belt and use it a springboard to be pushed as a main event star.
