News Here! Bella Twins, Tegan Nox, Rhyno In Impact? And More!!
Bella Twins/IIconics Feud Planned?
Many had questioned why Sasha Banks and Bayley lost the Women’s Tag Team titles to the IIconics at WrestleMania, including Banks herself. On the most recent edition of the Bella Twins podcast, Nikki revealed that there were plans for the Bellas to feud with the IIconics after WrestleMania.
“Brie and I, we were gonna come back and fight for the tag titles after WrestleMania and we were gonna go against The IIconics for a few months. Deep down inside, I kept having this weird feeling that I needed to get an x-ray on my neck because for a while I wasn’t feeling okay. Brie knows that in December after Evolution, I just kept telling her that I feel off and my head doesn’t feel right…”
You would think that WWE officals would have made sure that the Bellas were medically cleared to compete before working on the idea of a potential storyline for the tag team titles. I think now we can see why Sasha Banks was so frustrated with the direction the company took.
NJPW Unhappy With AEW?
One of the many promotions many had thought that AEW would possibly enter into a working agreement with was NJPW. However, according to Dave Meltzer during his latest addition of Wrestling Observer Radio, there is no chance of that happening in the future.
“The relationship is fractured, broken” Meltzer stated. “I hope it’s fixed, for the good of the industry, and for the good of everyone involved. They do things a certain way, and there is subjects that are taboo, and right now for everyone at New Japan Pro Wrestling, Kenny Omega is a taboo subject, AEW is a taboo subject, they are not supposed to talk about it, and they all know they are not supposed to talk about it”
It is not surprising that the relationship is fractured. AEW signed away Kenny Omega, who was a top draw with NJPW, plus Chris Jericho, was involved with intriguing storylines with the company.
Rhyno Returns To IMPACT?

The masked man did look like Rhyno, but he is still under contract with WWE. Is it possible that the masked was used to keep from a breach of contract?

It has been reported that Nox was potentially penciled in to win the Mae Young Classic last year, and that HHH was very high on her. Here is hoping that she is cleared to return soon, because she is a future talent for the WWE.
