News here! Commentary today on backlash on Angle/Corbin, IMPACT and OVW working together, Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal and more!!

Backlash Regarding Kurt Angle’s WrestleMania Opponent

There has been much backlash making its way around the internet today regarding Kurt Angle wrestling Baron Corbin at WrestleMania in his retirement match. Angle’s wife Giovana responded “Very” to Jim Ross’ Tweet of “Underwhelming” (she has since deleted it).

PWInsider is reporting that Corbin is the match for angle, and there is no planned swerve to substitute someone else into the match. It is also being said that Angle did not know who his opponent was until he arrived at RAW Monday night.

Jason’s Take

I said in yesterday’s shuffle that they could have done much better. I am not and have never been a fan of Angle, but he does deserve something better, and that is not a slight against Corbin.

Undertaker Featured On WrestleMania Production Truck

With Undertaker not being the opponent of Kurt Angle, there hasn’t been much rumored for a match for the Deadman at WrestleMania. However, a fan on Twitter pointed out that Undertaker is pictured on one of the WrestleMania production trucks that was in Chicago for RAW on Monday.

Jason’s Take

Who knows what WWE has planned for the Undertaker. At this point, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Cena/Undertaker II and it be announced 2 hours into the pay per view.

IMPACT And OVW Back Together Again

IMPACT Tweeted today that they have re-established a working agreement with OVW to be the developmental and training territory for IMPACT wrestling.

Jason’s Take

This should be beneficial for both parties, and allow IMPACT to continue to add to its own homegrown talent.

First Participant In The Andre The Giant Memorial Battler Royal Is….

It was announced on RAW that Braun Strowman is the first participant named for the Andre The Giant memorial battle royal.

Jason’s Take

It has been an interesting last six months for Strowman. From rumored to win the Universal Championship from Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble, to now being in the Andre battle royal. Seems like a bit of a fall for the “Monster Among Men.”

Roman Reigns Opponent Set For WrestleMania

And the WrestleMania news continues. Hey, that rhymes! Last night Drew McIntyre challenged Roman Reigns for a fight at WreslteMania.

Jason’s Take

This should be a good match for WrestleMania, however, it is most likely Roman will win, with McIntyre being in line for a huge push after WrestleMania.

Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black Moved to WWE Smackdown

Did Charlotte Flair have anything to do with this?

Andrade Cien Almas Zelina Vega WWE Superstar Shake-Up

Three talents get shaken up once more: Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black head to WWE Smackdown in a WWE Superstar Shake-Up reversal.

In a surprising move, WWE has changed the profiles for Andrade, Zelina Vega, and Aleister Black to the blue brand, WWE Smackdown. Black was assigned to Raw during the Superstar Shake-Up, and Andrade and Vega were moved there in a spot that saw Andrade get a clean victory over Intercontinental Champion Finn Balor.

The internet, of course, immediately jumps to conclusions about the Latin representation of Smackdown (Rey Mysterio was also moved to Raw), as well as the relationship between Charlotte Flair and Andrade. Aleister and Zelina are married, and WWE has been trying to keep couples together. Do you think Charlotte Flair is responsible for this move?

Greg DeMarco’s Take on this WWE Superstar Shake-Up Reversal

I stand in the middle! I know, I don’t do that often. But Andrade to Raw made a ton of sense, as he can be a workhorse there and eat up TV time by putting on great matches. Smackdown is loaded (even more so), and I really hope 3 people move back to Raw in the process. As for why? This can definitely be a case of “LOLCHARLOTTEWINS” as she and Andrade are of course an item. If so, that shows how strong of a pairing Zelina and Andrade are if she went with him, and since Zelina and Aleister are married, Black goes as well. I could see the four of them traveling together, honestly.

Dolph Ziggler Reveals He Was Added To The 2019 Royal Rumble The Night Before

How did Dolph Ziggler end up in the 2019 Men’s Royal Rumble?

Dolph Ziggler 2

When, and how, was Dolph Ziggler added to the 2019 Royal Rumble match?

In a sit-down interview with Chris Van Vliet (seen above), Dolph Ziggler reveals that he wasn’t booked for the WWE Royal Rumble until the night before, and he earned a payday for his comedy show and the Royal Rumble appearance.

“Oh my God. That’s a great story. Can I tell this story? When I talked to you, I was not booked for the Royal Rumble and I have no reason to lie to anybody or be like ‘Hey listen, I don’t know what the deal is’. I was just on hiatus and I got a call to be there. And if I wasn’t in town for a booking for a comedy show that night I would not have even been in Phoenix. I got a call the night before saying ‘Hey, you gotta get here.’ … I was one of the last people in the ring that night and my comedy show three blocks away had to start an hour late because I was running over with sweat and my bags. I almost went in my gear but I was like I’m going to have to shower.”

Dolph Ziggler hasn’t appeared for WWE since the Royal Rumble, and in the interview above he maintains that he on an extended vacation from the company. You might remember that Ziggler made first contact with Nia Jax during the Rumble, nailing her with a Superkick.

With thanks to WrestleZone for the quote.
