Smackdown!: It's all about the Intercontinental Title
By DALE PLUMMER -- SLAM! Wrestling
Wrestlemania is over three weeks away, but all I want to know is what is going on with Randy Orton? He comes back at FastLane to RKO the Authority ... out of nowhere, but then on RAW he joins back up with them. Then on Monday he provides the distraction, allowing Jon Stewart to get the drop on Seth Rollins. Everyone has a feeling this is building to a match with Rollins at Wrestlemania, but please WWE stop dancing around this match and just call it.

Total Divas: Nattie is TJ's career advisor; Paige's ink dilemma makes her wiser; Ariane's dad has no incisor
By BOB KAPUR - SLAM! Wrestling
The show starts off with Brie and Daniel Bryan barking like dogs to create a makeshift burglar alarm. Even their dog is embarrassed to watch this stupidity. Nattie invites TJ to go for dinner as a way of thanking him for helping out with her parents. She breaks down talking about her bad month and how great he's been helping her through it, and they fall in love all over again.

Book proves Kamala still king of the jungle
By CARMINE DESPIRITO - For SLAM! Wrestling
"They just keep taking pieces of me, bit by bit, a little piece at a time." This has been a truthful analogy throughout James Harris's life. Mistreatment during his career, attempting to chip away his dignity or his literal amputation. He was born to poor, humble beginnings in the deep south of Jim Crow America. Racism was prevalent. "Yes, Sir -- No, Sir" was the vernacular of every black resident. Young or old, when addressing a white man, you best bow your head. Not too long ago, that was customary and acceptable in that part of the world. Humility was not gracefully insisted, but rather aggressively demanded. Through it all, he's is devoid of hate or resentment. James was (and is) a humble, affable man.

Roode returns to House of Hardcore
By JAN MURPHY - Chinlock.com
For generations, Canada has produced its fair share of legendary professional wrestlers. In the early days it was the likes of Whipper Billy Watson and Killer Kowalski. Later it would be greats like Rowdy Roddy Piper, Dino Bravo and Jacques Rougeau. More recently, the likes of Edge (Adam Copeland), Bret (The Hitman) Hart, Chris Jericho, Lance Storm and Trish Stratus have gained living legends status. Today is no different, as Canada continues to turn out fantastic wrestlers, none more dominant in this generation than Bobby Roode, of Total Nonstop Action wrestling.

Raw: Reigns, Stewart have last laughs in Newark
By NICK TYLWALK - SLAM! Wrestling
Since the WWE seems to be proceeding full steam ahead with Roman Reigns in the main event at WrestleMania, it's worth noting that Newark isn't that far from Philly, the place where the fans first turned on him. Keep that in the back of your mind as we go live to the Prudential Center, where Jersey boy Jon Stewart might even be appearing tonight on USA.

Independent wrestlers respond to #GiveDivasAChance
By KARI WILLIAMS - SLAM! Wrestlingg
From feminist-driven outcries of support to sarcastic mockery, the #GiveDivasAChance hashtag thrust WWE's use of the Divas division to Twitterverse infamy. Spurred by last week's women's tag match between Emma and Paige and the Bella Twins that lasted less than one minute, fans and wrestlers alike voiced their opinions on the backlash-inspired worldwide trend that lasted roughly 1.5 days.
