Most Noticeable Absence: WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar

This week's most notable absence is once again the WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. With four weeks until WrestleMania, WWE need to start really promoting Brock and number one contender Roman Reigns as that is the current planned WrestleMania main event. With him poised to show up this Monday on RAW, Brock Lesnar needs to show up a bit more regularly, especially with WrestleMania coming up.

Most Noticeable Return: The Revival

This week's most notable return is The Revival. Although they didn't defeat The Bar to earn a title match at WrestleMania, The Revival have finally found their spot on Raw once again. With WrestleMania coming up, I expect them to appear regularly and somehow find their way into a title match. They are that talented and they need to be used more often.  

Is there someone you wish WWE would use more? Let us know in the comments!

Wrestling is my life. It's the only thing I am 100% passionate about. I started watching it when I was about six years old. The first event I saw was a VHS tape of SummerSlam 1991. My favorite wrestlers of all time are The Undertaker, Kane, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho and Edge. My favorite wrestlers right now are Millie McKenzie, Baron Corbin, The Miz, Rhea Ripley, Becky Lynch, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. Wrestling is definitely my main passion.
