The Rock Interested In WrestleMania 35 Match, WWE Considering Young Talent, Dream Match Opponents



Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson is interested in a match at WrestleMania 35 and according to the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, if there is no scheduling conflict, the Rock will be there in some form or fashion.

Per sources, WWE is eyeing a match involving the Rock, and barring any insurance policy hiccups, they may be able to line up Rock for a big showdown.

While all of this is merely chatter at this time, a number of names have reportedly been kicked around as opponents for the Rock, names such as Triple H have been brought up.

Depending on his contract situation, the big match that WWE would like to book would be Rock vs. Brock Lesnar, and it remains the “top priority” match among the list of possibilities.

A Lesnar/Rock feud would be the biggest draw and likely garner the biggest attention worldwide, but is all depends on Rock’s status and Lesnar’s contract, who may be committed to UFC by that time.

WWE is also penciling in Shawn Michaels for one last match at WrestleMania 35 as they consider the chances of him committing to a match, the greatest since his retirement, and know the fan interest in a Michaels/Rock showdown as it would be a true dream match.

A Michaels/Rock match is a longshot as WWE would prefer to put Michaels with either A.J Styles, Daniel Bryan, or a younger superstar.

WWE could also consider younger superstars with names such as Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and Elias being mentioned.

At this juncture, all of this is simply discussed as “what ifs” and a lot can change, but this initial brainstorm is sure to make you excited for what could be in store for WrestleMania 35.

AEW’s Nyla Rose Talks About Being Promotion’s 1st Transgender Wrestler



Nyla Rose

All Elite Wrestling has already impressed with their ‘Double or Nothing’ event last month in Las Vegas, and their roster of professional wrestlers continue to make headlines with their matches, and the work they do on social media as well.

One AEW wrestler who is receiving the spotlight is Nyla Rose, the promotion’s first transgender wrestler, who is discussing her journey to AEW and her future.

“As much negativity that I do see, I do see much more love and acceptance,” Rose said, during an interview with Sports Illustrated. “It’s just that sadly negative things seem to get highlighted more than positive things.”

She continued, “”If I can bear the weight, if I can hold up all the hatred and everything and carry that on my back, I know that I’m strong enough to do it, If the people out there need to beat me up and I need to absorb that so that the next generation, the youth, can have an easier time, I gladly welcome that.”

“I’m really hoping to set the tone and set the pace and create that environment that’s going to fuel the next generation” Rose commented “Not just trans people, but inspire anybody to say, ‘Hey, these women lit that on fire. I want to be that. I want to do that.’”

“AEW has felt that I am worthy of a chance. All I can ask is that some of the people out there, the fans who might be a little bit tight-minded, just give me a chance to show you what I can do in the ring. That’s all.”

NXT’s Adam Cole Discusses Creative Freedom



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.
