Most Notable Absence: Elias

With only three weeks until WrestleMania, now is not the time for WWE to leave vital parts of their roster off the weekly shows. Elias is one of the most over superstars on the main roster and it will not do him any good being left off the weekly shows. Hopefully, WWE have got a good plan for him going into WrestleMania.

Most Notable Return: Jeff Hardy

This week’s most notable return is Jeff Hardy. With his recent DUI arrest, there was doubt that WWE would have Jeff return to the WWE. This was proven wrong as Jeff showed up during “Woken” Matt Hardy’s match with Bray Wyatt, dubbed The Ultimate Deletion. There’s no guarantee that Jeff will keep up appearances in the lead up to WrestleMania, but him showing up this week was a shock.

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