HUGE WWE RETURN For Braun Strowman WrestleMania Partner?! | WrestleTalk News Mar. 2018

December 7, 2019

Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News
– I’m Oli Davis. No Flippy Stuff
WrestleMania weekend won’t just see WWE, Ring of Honor, Lucha Underground and Impact
run events in New Orleans; scores of independent promotions will also descend on the town to
showcase a variety of different styles and ways to anger Jim Cornette. In total, there will be over 50 wrestling-related
events between Thursday 4th April and Tuesday 9th in New Orleans, with wrestling shows EVOLVE
103, Joey Janela’s Spring Break 2, Revolution Pro Wrestling and Progress. But oddly, all those promotions share the
same top heel… The Louisiana Boxing and Wrestling Commission. David Bixenspan has a fascinating article
over on Deadspin about the Commission banning a series of wrestling moves in the state,
which includes: 1. All variations of the Pile Driver;
2. All variations of the Power Bomb;
3. The “Moonsault”, “Shooting Star”,
or “450 Splash” or any variation thereof which involves one wrestler, leaping or flipping
off the ropes or turnbuckles to contact the head or neck of the opponent with any part
of his body; 4. The “Stungun” or any variation thereof
which results in the one fighter’s head or neck being dragged, draped or “closelined”
[sic] across the ropes; 5. The striking of a wrestler’s head with any
object, chair, trashcan lid, etc., and… 6. No wrestler shall throw, push, shove or force
another out of the ring or over the top rope. Early 90s Bill Watts would be proud. This all dates back to a wrestler being paralysed
by a piledriver in the state in 1996, where he successfully sued the Commission for several
million dollars. Interestingly, “WWE is not subject to the
move bans” because the Commission “trusts the competence and training of their wrestlers”. The same is true with Ring of Honor, who are
now considered a “major league group” by the Commission. For the many different indie promotions, however,
they will be forced to either give Will Ospreay boots of lead so he can’t do any high flying
moves… although he’ll probably still find a way; or seek permission from the Commission
for certain moves before the event. But while we might not see any piledrivers
on WrestleMania weekend, we might get a big-time WWE return. Rey Mysterio For Braun Strowman’s Mystery
Partner? Sports Illustrated are reporting Vince McMahon
is “strongly considering” using Rey Mysterio as Braun Strowman’s mystery tag partner
against Cesaro and Sheamus at WrestleMania. This depends on if Mysterio is able to wrestle
come April 8th, as he suffered a bicep tear during an independent show at the start of
this month. While the injury isn’t as severe as first
thought, with it only taking a few weeks to fully heal, Rey did miss his advertised New
Japan date last Sunday, where he was scheduled to fight Jushin Thunder Liger at Strong Style
Evolved. Rey did still appear in a non-wrestling capacity
at the event, though, cutting a promo before his replacement Will Ospreay took on Liger,
promising to wrestle for New Japan as soon as possible – and then he seemingly set up
future matches with Ospreay, Liger and even Marty Scurll. Justin Barrasso points out Mysterio’s WWE
return for WrestleMania “is currently expected to be a short-term deal”, which would mean
Rey could both take the pin instead of Strowman, and Mysterio could then return to work matches
in New Japan. But it’s important to note Sports Illustrated
are also the ones who claimed The Undertaker’s WrestleMania return match was cancelled, and
John Cena would be taking on Mysterio instead. What are 5 other surprise returns we could
see at WrestleMania 34? Click the WrestleMania image on the left to

    The partner should be undertaker, and when he arrives.. Cena should force taker to fight with him instead… By fighting outside ring while strowman fights sheamus and cesaro alone.. Thus two storylines done well.. ?

  • Reply txcforever April 5, 2018 at 2:45 pm

    Well they have three choices at this point. A female wrestler (Alexa Bliss would be the ideal choice), a loser/jobber (Elias might not be much of a loser at this point) or an extremely out of nowhere return. The thing is, it should be someone that won't overshadow Strowman. So another big guy or an extremely over wrestler would be a very poor choice.

    Well most of the "banned stuff", makes sense, piledrivers, chair shots to the head… It's just the "flippy stuff" and the "pushed over the top rope" stuff that makes no sense.

    Even then, for the "Flippy stuff" it says "to the head", it says nothing about "to the body" or "to the legs", ECT, it specifically says "to the head", meaning so long as the person doing the "flippy stuff" doesn't hit the guy they are doing it to in the head, then it is fine. They wouldn't add the "to the head" part if it wasn't important.

  • Reply JDeppFan2272 April 6, 2018 at 7:23 am

    How would it make any sense to have Rey Mysterio be Brauns partner? It is just so random, it doesn't have any logic behind it.

    It is gonna be something stupid, like Kane or Big Show or Bray Wyatt, someone who has a past with Braun already. Personally, and I am not even joking like a lot of people may be doing, I'd love if it were Alexa Bliss, and they become the first ever Raw Tag Team Champion intergender team. That would be awesome, especially if Alexa is doomed to lose the Women's title like people think.

    Outside of that, it's a pipedream, but it it must be a "random shock for sake of random shock", I'd want it to be either Johnny Gargano or somebody who doesn't win at Takeover, basically a "Raw after Mania callup"… but AT Mania for once.
