Would love it if we got Kurt-Bryan at Mania. If we can't get that I'd take Bryan-Taker. There is no way Bryan can't drag a classic out of either of them. Why the hell would you wanna see him face Owens or Zayn at Mania, you just saw that last year.

Hmmmmm.

Bryan v Taker or Angle would be great...on WWE 2K19.
v Sami would be a great match no doubt but doesn’t feel like a Mania title match
V Bray brings a lot of history, and the wrinkle with Rowan...but how many times can you get burned by a Wyatt push that fizzles out

I can see them doing v Owens, they’re building him up as the likeable “every man” in these vignettes to go against Bryan’s current gimmick.

Can see the Everyman videos for Owens leading to a swerve where he just beats the shit out of a face upon return. Seems like an Owens thing to do.

The 77 year old Saint has not tweeted since late January, but it's possible that he was never the one running the account. The UK wrestling legend was announced to be the NXT UK GM in June 2018. Saint was mentioned on the recent NXT UK TV episode but we should know more about his status after the NXT UK TV tapings in Coventry, England this coming Friday and Saturday.

The storyline would have seen The Bucks lead an "invasion angle" for WrestleMania 35 season, presumably involving The Bucks, Cody Rhodes, Kenny Omega and "Hangman" Adam Page. Meltzer did not confirm that those other talents would have been involved with the invasion, just that this invasion angle was pitched to The Young Bucks.

There has been talk within WWE of Angle doing a retirement match soon, according to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio. That retirement match could come at WrestleMania 35 in April.

There's no word yet on who Angle might wrestle for his retirement match but he will likely work the WrestleMania 35 card even if they decide against the retirement stipulation. Meltzer noted that Angle has definitely been in recent talks to wrestle a match on the biggest show of the year.

* Undertaker got up in Vince's feels by agreeing to appear at Starrcast.


* Callups from NXT - Vince McMahon wanted four of the best NXT talents. The goal is to push Gargano, Ricochet, Ciampa and Aleister as huge stars, as Vince felt creating new stars would be better than trying to rehab anyone on the current roster.


* Vince feels like they have no male stars on the roster full-time.


* The plan is for Becky, Charlotte & Lacey Evans to be the most pushed women in WWE after WrestleMania when Ronda goes on hiatus until the fall.

Quote:

* HHH is not well liked by most employees at WWE HQs and is often described as "It's all about him, all the time"


* Vince McMahon prefers to give NXT callups 'rough' debuts to see if they will sink or swim. One thing Vince does when HHH suggest a person is he asks H to hype them up and then Vince tries to list why he thinks they don't sound special.

A disclaimer is also required that they are not claiming the exclusive right to use the word "wrestling."

Their applications for 'AEW', the AEW logo and 'Change the Universe' have all been given initial refusals for the same amending of classification and Identification of Goods and Services and paying the proper fee as well.

Furthermore, their trademark for 'AEW All Out' has also been given an initial refusal due to two pending active applications using the word 'All Out.' If registered, it might have an effect on AEW's application being registered.

Botter does not mention whether or not the WWE Title will be involved. Bryan is currently scheduled to defend the WWE Title against Kofi Kingston at WWE Fastlane on Mar. 10. Owens has been out of action since October 2018 following double knee surgery. In recent weeks, WWE has been running vlog style updates from Owens, who has been bowling and going to the movies with his family. On Feb. 11, the WWE social media account tweeted that there is "only one month" before Owens returns. It's unclear whether Owens will be part of Raw or SmackDown once he returns.

Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer recently reported that Bryan would be facing "a returning superstar" at WrestleMania 35. Owens was listed as one possibility by Meltzer.

Meltzer goes on to report that Ricochet was originally scheduled to face Finn Balor, but the match was changed by Triple H, who didn't want a face vs. face match or either guy taking a loss. Balor had won the Intercontinental Title the night before at WWE Elimination Chamber and Ricochet would have been making his debut. Ricochet and Balor ended up teaming together to defeat Bobby Lashley and Lio Rush.

Finally, the bout between Ronda Rousey and Ruby Riott was reportedly scheduled to be Rousey against Alexa Bliss in "a quick squash" but the match was changed when they "needed more time" out of the match.

Rollins has a problem with a disc in his back, according to Meltzer. He doesn’t need surgery and will be fine after some rest, and he doesn’t appear to be in any danger of missing WrestleMania. It was thought that he could wrestle now if needed, but apparently that’s not the case, as WWE learned on Monday. But he’s apparently close to being cleared, so he should be OK soon.

If I went it would be the end of my career. There wouldn't be anywhere else to go after that. No step up, nothing left to do.

"In the mid-2000s, Vince McMahon decided that you couldn't be from Canada and be a babyface in the WWE, for whatever reason. 'No one would cheer a Canadian' was his mindset. I'm not kidding," recalled Jericho. "I was told that 'You can't be from Winnipeg anymore, you're from Tampa.' I only live in Tampa. I'm not from there. 'Where were you born?' Manhasset (New York). 'Ah, sounds too country. You're now from Manhattan, New York.' There was a whole bunch of us that were Canadian. Edge, Christian, Val Venis, a bunch of other guys. He just decided one time, you can't be a babyface and be from Canada. For people to really cheer you, you have to be from the United States. It probably lasted about six months."

According to an article in SLAM! Sports, the hometown change and Vince's opinion that Canadians could not be good guys, happened in 2004.

One of the things that threw Vince off was how much he was shocked and hurt when he found out Undertaker was doing Starrcast. Vince always treated Undertaker special, like a modern Andre (who, ironically, Vince had a falling out with toward the end of his career). It was in many ways the first sign in more than a decade that he no longer fully controls wrestling. Even though Starrcast isn’t AEW, it is part of the AEW weekend and fans perceive it as part of AEW. Once that was announced, there was a push to get Undertaker on WrestleMania from the perception standpoint. Vince wanted him off Starrcast but there may not be a legal way he can pull that off.

His conclusion about the declining ratings when looking at quarter hours and minute-by-minutes is that it’s stale, the stars are stale, and decided that they needed to immediately make new stars. He wanted to make four stars from NXT who are great wrestlers. While it is not clear whether some of this was to establish workers the level of the AEW top guys and tag teams, since AEW will feature that, the timing of this coming off the ticket demand for the AEW show made many make that connection. Even if a lot of modern fans don’t understand the significance of the AEW ticket demand, something with all their advantages, WWE only has had once every year–WrestleMania, and the demand was ahead of most Manias in history (although not the 2019 demand),

Vince understands the significance of a pre-sale with orders that would have totaled 43,500 tickets logged in within 30 minutes, something WWE has only been able to garner an interest level among the ticket consumers a few times in its history, with no television and only one star (Chris Jericho) who was ever a true major player on WWE television and Cody, who had that television but is a far bigger star without it. Others can make excuses but for Vince, he knows better and knows the significance of the magnitude of all that. It’s something he has never even come close to doing anywhere ever where he didn’t have television.

So the decision was made late last week to bring in Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Ricochet and Aleister Black. He made the call without consulting Paul Levesque, who seemed to be building Gargano vs. Ciampa, or at least something involving the two, for his biggest NXT show of the year on 4/5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Ciampa was along with Rush one of the two best heels in the business and one could argue the best, and Gargano was heelish but sort of tweener, and the tension was an ongoing storyline, and now they were being introduced as a babyface tag team.

Situations with Undertaker and Batista as far as their status on the show is unclear, as is the case with Kurt Angle and the idea of a retirement match.

Found it surprising that none of the 3 guys got the "future endeavors" line as part of WWE's announcements. Last guy who didn't get that was Alberto Del Rio due to WWE feeling he was a very bad influence for Paige.

They never hit 500,000 viewers nor were they ever consistently hitting 400,000 viewers.

We are told Corino is now working on the booking and production for Raw and Smackdown live events. He replaced Jamie Noble on the team that works on the live events, which also includes Michael Hayes and Joey Maloney, among others, so that Noble had more time to focus on his other WWE responsibilities.

Corino had been handling the production of live events for WWE NXT live events in Florida, so this is a similar role, just on a larger scale.

The departure of Anderson has led to discussion within the company about whether some of the other "old guard" producers may also be on the way out.

The non-competes would end just a few days before Double Or Nothing.

It looks like The Hart Foundation (Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart, Jimmy Hart, Bret Hart) will also still be inducted this year. There was some speculation on their induction as a group after WWE confirmed DX (Triple H, Shawn Michaels, Chyna, "Road Dogg" BG James, Billy Gunn, Sean "X-Pac" Waltman) as the headliners, but apparently they are inducting two groups this year.

Apparently, the idea of bringing Prichard back to the creative team in a full-time position was first mentioned early last week. It was instantly well received and the idea gained enough momentum by the weekend that Prichard will now reportedly be Vince's right-hand man and a "very key guy" to the creative functions in WWE.

Defendants admit that the master recordings were deleted while in their custody and no longer exist. "

Given that she's back on social media, it would appear that she's out of jail.

But it was the follow up that put Rollins in the headlines.

Yes, Seth Rollins believes Brock Lesnar is a ho. And if we don't believe Rollins, we can ask Lesnar ourselves. Brock hasn't sent a tweet that wasn't a retweet since May 2017, so don't expect him to answer any inquiries about his status as a ho on social media. Lesnar's advocate Paul Heyman has yet to issue a statement on the matter.

It stemmed from a concussion that Mustafa Ali sustained earlier this month at a house show and the momentum Kingston gained going into Elimination Chamber.

This week’s update on WrestleMania is that HHH vs. Batista is obviously a done deal. HHH said in January that he was able to start training after his surgery for the torn pec although doing a match five months after that surgery would be ahead of the usual six month timetable for that surgery. The match had been planned dating back to an angle on Smackdown before HHH’s injury, but it was only finalized this past week. As noted here before, Batista had no interest in wrestling anywhere but WWE but as late as last week had not finalized a deal. Both Undertaker and HHH had been looked at as opponents.

As of the weekend, Undertaker was not on the card and John Cena and Kurt Angle still were. There’s still not a lot definite for the show and this is the latest period I can ever recall where most of the show wasn’t pretty much finalized. From television, and this has not yet been confirmed, it does look like Daniel Bryan vs. Kofi Kingston will replace Bryan vs. Kevin Owens as the WWE title match on WrestleMania. Mustafa Ali, who at one point was to face Bryan at Fastlane, has not returned to action since suffering a concussion more than two weeks ago, although he was being evaluated on 2/26 and his return is expected shortly ...

We were told that a few days before the show Vince McMahon made the decision to put Owens, who was Bryan’s Mania opponent at Fastlane instead. The one negative is that Owens, who was supposed to return as an everyman babyface, hence the videos, that were to peak in a few weeks, was rushed back and put in the position to take the title shot as a handpicked person by McMahon, and take it from the guy people wanted ...

With the constant changes in Bryan’s opponents, he’s now lost three matches via pin on the last three episodes of Smackdown, two to Kingston (the first on 2/12 to get Kingston into the Chamber and over in the gauntlet; and then, after Bryan had pinned Kingston in the Chamber final, because Kingston got over so big and they decided to put him in the PPV main event they had him beat Bryan in a six-man on 2/19, and then when the decision was made to flip flop he and Owens, to get Owens over after a long absence, he pinned Bryan on 2/26 in a tag match). Granted, the champion getting pinned in non-title and tag situations is just basic booking, when you overdo it, you make the champion look weak and any kind of angle repeated three times faces the law of diminishing returns. Bryan had already back in December dropped a TV fall to Mustafa Ali to elevate him into title challenger level, so it’s actually been done four times, due to booking changes.

As far as what goes on last, that decision won’t be made until the week of the show but everyone expects it to be the Lynch match and talking about the first woman’s main event in history would seem to make it a lock, but they’ve also referred to Lesnar vs. Rollins as the main event. But clearly the focal point of the promotion of the show will be the women.

Hopefully it’s more like Bushi, who has had to tone down but is still very good, than Honma, who is very limited in what he can do. Takahashi was really on a role at the time of his injury at the Cow Palace show and due to his charisma was the most popular junior heavyweight in the company dating back to the heyday of Jushin Liger

This is actually a huge story because with the deregulation of pro wrestling by athletic commissions around the country, he had never had to take a blood test, and with that, and his competing in many bloodbath matches, it put the people he worked matches with at very serious risk. Bueller first found a growth in his armpit and was told he was suffering from Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and began a program of radiation and chemotherapy. This took him out of wrestling. But the treatment wasn’t working on his white blood cell count. After further testing, it was found out he was HIV-positive. He was also suffering from pneumonia. He noted in his entire career not only did he never have to take a blood test, but the subject of taking one never came up.

Bueller claims he doesn’t know where the HIV came from but feels it may have been from being involved “with someone that I shouldn’t have” but that doctors believe he’s been HIV-Positive for years and just didn’t get any symptoms until recently. He said he had been doing death match style wrestling since 2015, said he doesn’t think he got HIV from bloody matches but also said he would never know for sure. He actually has talked about wanting to wrestle, but not in matches involving blood, with the proviso that if there is any blood by accident, they’d go right to the finish. But that would require a company comfortable with using him and opponents willing to wrestle him.

What we do know is that Finkel, who nobody has seen since Lawler said that, has been in poor health since that time and it’s really a sad story. Finkel was also a friendly guy, was, as far as I’ve been told, the conduit in the WWF office getting the Observer from the start and he’d run off copies for most of senior management, and obviously was the greatest ring announcer of his generation, and I’d even rate him above Michael Buffer.

Raw Tag Team Champions the Revival were slated to be ringside for the match but once it was confirmed Ciampa would not be cleared to wrestle, it was changed to the Revival vs. Black and Ricochet. Ciampa and Gargano instead appeared in a non-wrestling roles on the show.

We are told the neck issue has been a lingering thing for at least 4-5 weeks, possibly longer. Depending on if and when Ciampa is cleared to return, WWE will have to be creative regarding the NXT Championship and the 2019 Dusty Rhodes Tag Classic, which Ciampa is competing in. We are told all options are on the table, depending on what the final determination is regarding his injury, but as of Monday he was not cleared to wrestle medically.
