Greg DeMarco sits in for Jason with commentary about Roman Reigns returning to WWE Raw, Big Dave inserting himself into the WrestleMania picture, and more!

Roman Reigns Is Back, And The Numbers Will Show It

According to Ringside News, Roman Reigns return did huge ticket sales for Raw in Atlanta. This show already featured the Ric Flair Birthday Celebration before Reigns was announced on Friday. Expect ratings to see a boost as well.

Greg’s Take:
Of course it did! WWE is still a business, and Roman announcing that he’s back (which he did, and even saw some action later in the show) was perfectly executed on all fronts. Those complaining about any part of it simply don’t want to be happy. Screw them.

Batista Is Also Back

In a move that wasn’t announced, Batista is back in the fold and targeted Triple H after his attack on Ric Flair. A WrestleMania showdown seems imminent.

Greg’s Take:
This is exactly what should happen, so good on them for doing it! Batista vs. Triple H at WrestleMania is a perfect use of two part-timers, and the surprise was well done. People knew Batista would be there, but the manner in which it happened was still a surprise. Still, no one is going to credit WWE for not using Batista to sell tickets or drive ratings, because that ruins their great story about how evil Vince McMahon is.

WrestleMania 36 Expected To Be In Tampa

According to WrestleVotes on Twitter, WrestleMania 36 has been locked into Tampa for months now. Another stadium show in Florida, where the only real concern is rain. And this time there’s a pirate ship!

Greg’s Take:
Count me in! I already gave my take on the Twitter: Shane must jump, Kairi must sail!

Anthem & IMPACT Wrestling Channeled Matt Hardy and DELETED Stuff

In a sneaky great newsbite (courtesy of the 411Mania), Anthem & IMPACT Wrestling deleted (DELETE!) 16 episodes of Global Force Wrestling AMPED to free up space, citing that it was a “normal course of business.” Jarrett claims they are worth $4.8 million.

Greg’s Take:
This might be my favorite bit of news yet! I can’t blame Anthem here, the only thing worth seeing is Allie Parker accompanying The Singh Bros to the ring! In all seriousness, Jarrett is probably leveraging this to get the trademark to his name and likeness, which he can then sell to WWE to use for merchandising. Which is why he remains the greatest worker of all time.

More All Elite Wrestling Trademark Issues

All Elite Wrestling had more trademark issues today, with more things not approved. This comes from Wrestling Inc, and you can see the details here.

Greg’s Take:
Nothing to see here! Seriously, I am not being a jerk to AEW. There literally isn’t anything to see here. People have to make amendments to trademark filings all the time–including WWE. This is a learning process, and as much as I like to make fun of AEW for being a glorified t-shirt company that also may run wrestling shows, this is no reason to talk shit against them.

And with that, I remind all of you to…
