As WrestleMania XXIX gets closer with each passing week, the news and rumors emanating from the WWE get bigger as well. Professional wrestling's biggest show of the year is now just a month away and that was very apparent over the past week as plenty of noteworthy things happened on WWE programming.
Even though this is a hugely important time for the WWE, some things simply take precedence. That was the case this week as it was announced on Tuesday night that Paul Bearer had died at the age of 58. Bearer will always be remembered as one of the best wrestling managers of all time, and no fan will ever forget his partnership with The Undertaker.
Coincidentally, The Phenom made his televised return to the WWE one night prior to Bearer's untimely death. Taker appeared twice on Old School Raw and will face CM Punk at WrestleMania. Additionally, a legendary tag team returned to action and could be back for the foreseeable future. WWE also settled on a name for its upcoming June pay-per-view, and there are huge changes taking place within the company's creative structure.
Here are juiciest news pieces and rumors regarding the WWE for the week beginning on March 3.
