Plans For Undertaker, John Cena Match At WrestleMania 34

Published

on

Make no mistake about it, John Cena and the Undertaker will be squaring off at WrestleMania 34, despite a confusing build that could end up looking rather genius in the end.

So let’s get through the question that everyone is probably asking right now; Is the match going to take place?

Yes. Yes. Yes (using Daniel Bryan voice).

The 2 WWE icons will be facing off in an “impromptu” match at WrestleMania, but it won’t be in a traditional build, as a match of this magnitude may have warranted.

So why did WWE go this route? Because of the luxury of being able to do so.

The WrestleMania 34 card is stacked and WWE felt very confident in a slow build for a Cena/Taker match due to the strength of the match lineup.

Things changed when Daniel Bryan was cleared to perform at the annual event as WWE saw an already great card, get even stronger.

So, WWE, who is always looking to create a special “WrestleMania moment”, is treating this as an opportunity to do just that on the “Grandest Stage of Them All”.

According to a source, WWE is planning for John Cena to cut a promo at the event in some form or fashion (most likely in the ring) and run down the Undertaker yet again.

At that point, Undertaker will appear and the two will have an impromptu match, more like a Street Fight.

WWE is considering Undertaker’s biker gimmick to respond to Cena, which would go in-line with Undertaker’s apparent “retiring” of the Deadman after his loss to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 33.

WWE could squeeze 1-3 more matches out of the Biker gimmick, while still honoring the retirement of Undertaker’s Deadman gimmick.

Tune in Sunday to see how it all unfolds live.

Lio Rush Backstage Reputation

Published

on

WWE superstar Lio Rush has been in the middle of a confusing wrinkle in his association with Bobby Lashley, who seems to be done with Rush, but still teaming with him.

Lashley attacked Rush following Fin Balor pinning Rush in their handicapped match at Elimination Chamber, which cost Lashley his Intercontinental Championship despite not being pinned.

It’s been an interesting direction for Rush’s character, and according to PWInsider’s Mike Johnson (h/t WrestlingNews.co) Rush may have a reputation backstage.

“It appears Lio Rush is done with Bobby Lashley. I can tell you behind the scenes there were not a lot of people surprised at that and not a lot of people surprised that Lio took the pin. There are times Lio has a reputation for rubbing people, including other workers, the wrong way. Whether that was being held against him and that was part of the reasoning for him losing or whether it was just a decision to protect Lashley and shift the belt to Finn Balor, I guess we’ll have to see based on how Lio is presented in the weeks and months to come.”

D-Generation X, with Chyna, to be Inducted in WWE Hall of Fame

Published

on

Chyna will finally get recognized and honored as a WWE Hall of Famer.

According to ESPN, Degeneration-X will be officially inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2019.

Shawn Michaels, Triple H, The New Age Outlaws, X-Pac, and Chyna will all be inducted. It will mark Michaels’ second induction into the Hall of Fame.

“I think it’s the most meaningful for us all to go in together and to be recognized together,” Tripe H said, according to ESPN. “Because I think both groups were [just] as impactful.”

“It’s a funny thing, because DX was something that, before Kevin [Nash] and Scott [Hall] left, at the time we all talked about using ‘The Kliq’ as it was — kind of morphing that into television, since it was so out there anyways,” said Levesque. “But things worked out the way they did — they left, and the timing was right.”

“Shawn and I still wanted to do it. Vince saw the value in it, I guess, and finally let us go at it, by that point in time I was looking for a heater, and we had brought Chyna.”

Triple H went on to say Chyna deserved to be in the Hall of Fame.

“Look, people believe what they want to believe. When I said a few years ago on the Austin podcast, or show, or whatever you want to call it, there’s complexities around it,” said Triple H. “But absolutely, definitely deserves to be in there. It’d be tough to pick a female that was more impactful on the business. She did something that was completely so out of left field that it wasn’t even being considered when we first brought it up for her to come in. It wasn’t even a consideration… it wasn’t an easy thing, and against all odds she did all of that.”

And as far as Chyna being inducted in the future as single’s competitor, which she deserves, Triple H is confident it will happen eventually.

“From that standpoint, absolutely 100 percent deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, and should probably be more than once — as a group, but individually as well,” Levesque continued. “There’s more complexity to that than meets the eye, but here we are. I’m just happy that it’s here. I’m happy for her family, the people that she was close to, that hopefully this is super meaningful to them. I know it would be to her. It’s a great thing — very deserving.”
