HUGE WRESTLEMANIA 34 Match In Danger?! Top WWE Star INJURED! | WrestleTalk News Mar. 2018

December 23, 2019


Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News,
I am Luke Owen. And I would like to kick this episode off by celebrating the one year anniversary
of the very first episode of WrestleRamble! It’s also my wife’s birthday, but we all
know which one is more important. Don’t worry, we’re not throwing another party,
but you can can go and watch the latest episode of Fantasy Booking Warfare where Oli and I
give our pitches for the main roster debut of Aleister Black and a new Ministry of Darkness.
Oli and I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has watched our doofy
little videos and left a comment – and here’s to many more years of inane babble. Headline: El Generico Returns?
The name El Generico is a mythical one in the world of professional wrestling. He was
once one of the more popular acts on the independent scene, but we haven’t heard from him in
many, many years. Around the time Sami Zayn signed with WWE, but I’m sure that’s just
a coincidence. His last tweet was on August 19th 2013, praising Daniel Bryan for winning
the WWE Championship from John Cena – and then silence. That was until yesterday when
the El Generico Twitter was active once again with the simple message, “hello amigos”.
Could we see the long-awaited wrestling return of El Generico? And if we are, WWE could certainly
use his help as one of their big WrestleMania matches is in jeopardy. Headline: Shane McMahon Legitimately Injured?!
Two weeks ago on Smackdown Live, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn attacked Shane McMahon after
he announced they would be wrestling each other at WrestleMania 34, which saw Shane
O’Mac get powerbombed onto some metal equipment backstage. Shane wasn’t on last week’s
show to further this injury storyline – which was reportedly going to end with him teaming
with the now medically cleared Daniel Bryan to take on Owens and Zayn on the grandest
stage of them all. Sadly WWE.com reported yesterday that this
injury angle has worked itself into a shoot, writing that that while in the Caribbean recovering
with his family he ended up in the hospital as a result of the bump backstage. “Shane
developed a massive infection due to acute diverticulitis and was hospitalized for several
days in Antigua before being flown back to a New York-area hospital, where he is currently
being treated with heavy doses of antibiotics.” Also noting that Shane suffered an umbilical
hernia which will require surgery. But this is WWE.com, right? No need to worry
about this as it’s just another step in the storyline. They do this sort of nonsense
all the time. However the Wrestling Observer are reporting that this isn’t part of the
WrestleMania angle. “This is legitimate and not part of the storyline currently going
that saw Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn ‘fired’ for their attack on him after he stepped down
as commissioner a couple of weeks ago.” They add: “This obviously puts the expected
McMahon-Daniel Bryan vs. Owens-Zayn WrestleMania match in limbo, but the organization will
likely have to put Plan B in motion starting Tuesday with less than two weeks to go before
the show.” To note how serious of an injury this is,
Brock Lesnar quite famously dealt with diverticulitis while in UFC – which caused him to retire
for a period of time. He eventually had part of his colon removed and had to change his
diet so he could return to both UFC and WWE. We here at WrestleTalk – who often give Shane
a lot of sweaty stick – want to wish Shane O’Mac a speedy recovery. Headline: Dean Ambrose Removed From Axxess
Someone else who will be missing WrestleMania is Dean Ambrose, who was put on the shelf
in January following a triceps injury. But while Ambrose wasn’t going to be at Mania
to have his reported match with Seth Rollins, he would still scheduled to be at WWE Axxess,
the fan event that takes place over Mania weekend for a signing session with VIP ticket
holders (Oli and I will be signing stuff at Wrestling Media Con this September. Order
your tickets using the link below). However WWE.com have announced that Ambrose will no
longer be at Axxess, being pulled completely from WrestleMania weekend in New Orleans.
Mike Johnson of PWInsider has added that while there is no reason for Ambrose given for being
removed from Axxess, he has also been pulled from several other appearances. WWE have been
quick to replace Ambrose however, announcing that WWE Hall of Famers Ric Flair and Sting
will take his place. WrestleRamble is one year old! Check out the
latest episode where we fantasy book the main roster debut of Aliester Black, and check
out the podcast version of the show where Oli gives his less than praising thoughts
on Pacific Rim: Uprising.

    I sense a triple threat match Sami Zain Vs Daniel Bryan be Kevin Owens and add a stipulation that is if Kevin Owens or Sami Zain win they are hired again to SDLive and I would have Daniel Bryan win and I would have Sami Zain return to SDLive as el generico and then have Kevin Owens of tv up till brand split or draft and then I would have Kevin iwens drafted to raw while Sami Zain is rehired and then wwe can play a storyline where Sami Zain is missing and isn’t appearing in smackdown until summerslam or a major event and then when he is facing a major person like the wwe champion for championship he can reveal he as el generico is Sami Zain or he can reveal after he wins the wwe championship
