Ronda Rousey, Stephanie McMahon/HHH Match In Works For WrestleMania

Published

on

It appears that Ronda Rousey’s appearance at the end of the Royal Rumble gave fans an indication as to whom she is going to be stepping into the ring with at WrestleMania 34.

It is apparently not going to be one of the 3 women Rousey was standing in the ring with, Asuka, Charlotte Flair and Alexa Bliss, but whom she interacted with outside of the ring.

The match has actually been in the works for a few years, dating back to WrestleMania 32 and is now in the works for WrestleMania 34.

According to sources, WWE is looking at a mixed-tag match that would pit Ronda Rousey and a male superstar against Stephanie McMahon and HHH.

Now, WWE’s top name for the spot is The Rock, as he was involved in the setup, but due to scheduling it is very hard to even pencil the Rock’s name in for the match, however WWE is going to give a “full court press”.

RAW general manager Kurt Angle has also been discussed as there were seeds planted for an Angle/HHH match back at Survivor Series and a tag-match could be best for all parties involved with Angle’e experience providing a leadership role for Rousey.

WWE could also entertain Roman Reigns, a longshot, in that spot with the hopes that Rousey’s popularity and the dislike for HHH and McMahon could help give Reigns a boost. But WWE is still intent on a Reigns/Lesnar main event.

Other names that could be considered are John Cena, if the Undertaker match that is penciled in for the event falls through and Batista, who has mentioned wanting to come back for one final WWE run and also has mentioned a desire to work with Triple H.

NXT’s Adam Cole Discusses Creative Freedom

Published

NXT Champion Adam Cole is at the height of his success with the promotion, recently defeating Johnny Gargano in another instant classic to capture his first NXT Championship, and he is talking about how things go down in NXT.

Unlike much of the main roster, where promos are often scripted and comedy-acts are more common, Cole says that superstars in NXT get a bit more creative freedom, as he had with Gargano for their match.

“One of the coolest things about NXT is we have a ton of creative liberties to come up with the story and the vision we have for the match” Cole said, during an interview with TalkSport. “Of course, there’s input and advice given and there’s suggestions or, you know ‘we need something this way’ (but) we do have a lot of freedom, which is great.”

Cole added that he and Gargano came up with the format for their two out of three falls classic at NXT Takeover: New York.

Andrade

WWE superstar Rey Mysterio believes that the company has a big star on their hands in Andrade .

“This kid is awesome” Mysterio said, during an appearance on the WINCLY podcast. “I mentioned it before, in previous interviews, but, every time I’m in the ring with him, there’s an affiliation to how I would move with Eddie [Guerrero],” Mysterio said.

“This is how good he is! He’s thinking a step ahead before you even move. He already knows the positioning, and knows exactly what to do and how to do it. My hat goes off to Andrade, as he’s definitely the future of WWE.”

Mysterio sees all the tools necessary to succeed in WWE.

“Just like anybody else, once you can dominate the mic skills and English, then he is bound to become a star,” Mysterio continued. “I’ve seen him work on his English, and it’s a slow process, but he’s moving forward. Once he dominates his English language, he’s on his way to stardom.”

Apollo Crews

WWE is starting to allow superstars on their main rosters to transition back to NXT, much like they did with Tyler Breeze, who recently returned to NXT, where he had his most success, following around 2 years of meandering on the main roster following his callup.

Fandango, Apollo Crews, and Killian Dain made their returns to NXT tv at Winter Park, FL at Full Sail University for Thursday’s NXT TV tapings.

Fandango, also making his return from injury, made the save for his Breezango partner, Tyler Breeze, who was on the receiving end of an attack at the hands of the Forgotten Sons. Crews made his return to take on Kushida in singles competition, and Dain made a brutal attack on Matt Riddle following Riddle’s win over Arture Rass.

Fandango had been out of action after suffering a shoulder injury back in July 2018.
