John Cena/Samoa Joe No Longer Happening At WrestleMania?
WrestleMania matches are being finalized left and right with the conclusion of Fastlane. If you have been following the news shuffle the past few days, I commented on the rumored John Cena vs Samoa Joe WrestleMania match up. According to Dave Meltzer and the latest addition of Wrestling Observer Radio, the match is not planned for the card.
I am hoping this match still happens as both have wanted to face each other for awhile and the history is there to make for a great match.
Current WrestleMania Card
With the above in mind, WrestleMania has currently 3 known matches including:
WWE Universal Championship
Brock Lesnar (Champion) vs. Seth Rollins
WWE Raw Women’s Championship – Triple Threat Match
Ronda Rousey (Champion) vs. Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair
WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Buddy Murphy vs. TBD (Winner of cruiser weight tournament)
While not yet announced, the following are anticipated matches based of more recent storylines
Daniel Bryan (Champion) vs. Kofi Kingston
Batista vs. Triple H
Randy Orton vs. AJ Styles
Shane McMahon vs. The Miz
A very stacked card so far. It will be interesting to see if Undertaker or John Cena are involved in any fashion.
Harlem Heat A Part Of The Hall Of Fame
It was announced today that Harlem Heat will be the latest induction revealed for the WWE Hall Of Fame Class Of 2019. Booker T will be joining some elite company being in the Hall Of Fame as both a singles wrestler (inducted in 2013) and as part of Harlem Heat. Ric Flair is currently the only wrestler in the Hall of Fame twice. Shawn Michaels will also been inducted twice with this years induction of D-Generation X.

Booker T had a great run as both a singles and tag team competitor. Many fans haven’t liked the choice of inductees this year, but I can’t see how anyone has a problem with this one.
Latest On Dean Ambrose
Many have speculated with WWE driving home the fact that Dean Ambrose is leaving after WrestleMania that it may be a work. However, Dave Meltzer said on the latest addition of Wrestling Observer Radio that Ambrose still plans to leave the company and that it is not a work
Who knows what Ambrose truly has planned. There is still a lot of time left between now and April for Ambrose to reconsider. If he does leave WWE, I don’t expect him to sign anywhere else, and wouldn’t be suprosed to see a return to WWE at some point. Royal Rumble 2020 perhaps ?
WWE Announce 3 New Signings
WWE has announced 3 additions to the company. They are MLW’s Stokely Hathaway, Cal Bloom (who happens to be the son of former WWF/AWA star Wayne Bloom), and Robbie Strauss. Strauss would be Robbie from TNA/IMPACT.
