Rusev WrestleMania 34 Match REVEALED?! WWE Plans UPDATE! | WrestleTalk News Mar. 2018

December 10, 2019

Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News
– I’m Oli Davis, and not only is today WrestleTalk’s 500K Day party – which you’re all invited
to right after this video – we’ve also got a huge announcement to make… Order NOW At
…we here at WrestleTalk are releasing our first ever book: The WrestleTalk Almanac Vol.
1 – a huge 144-page, full-colour book, which is the most complete insider guide to professional
wrestling you’ll find anywhere on the planet! Acting as a huge reference guide to all your
professional wrestling geek needs – because stats and figures are actually really genuinely
fun – the WrestleTalk Almanac includes: -Full day by day wrestling news and analysis
from around the world in 2017-18. -Reviews of over 400 events worldwide – featuring
full match results, times and star ratings. -a stats list of over 850 active wrestlers
featuring heights, weights, real names and hometowns! And much, much more. My personal favourite is the comprehensive
list of over 1,000 major wrestling shows throughout history, each one graded by its average star
rating and ranked in order. Meaning you can see what were the best (and
worst) shows in modern wrestling times. And if you order now – this is because people
actually asked for it, not an ego trip – if you order now, you’ll get a signed 8×10
photo of me and Luke. We’d sign the Almanac itself, but we didn’t
want it to depreciate in value. We’re all so genuinely proud of this – and
we want to do more in the future – so please Support WrestleTalk, and order yours for just
£13.99 plus postage and packaging now using the link below. Because what better way to celebrate 500K
Day with us. Speaking of made up holidays… SEGUE! #BookRusev
Despite being one of the most over wrestlers in WWE, Rusev currently lacks a WrestleMania
match. So he’s launched a Book Rusev campaign on
Twitter, deciding he needs a celebrity opponent. Arrow actor Stephen Amell has already declined
out of fear, but a number of other mainstream stars have expressed their interest. Rock ‘The Dwayne’ Johnson has suggested
comedian Kevin Hart, if Rusev kayfabes Hart’s STD. Mario Lopez liked Rusev’s initial tweet,
meaning he could challenge at WrestleMania. But now Rusev seems to have found his own
Mr. T: Macaulay Culkin: “BREAKING NEWS: I am officially accepting
@RusevBUL challenge to wrestle him at this year’s Wrestlemania. You heard it here first, folks. Come at me, bro!” WWE have yet to confirm Rusev playing the
role of Joe Pesci in Home Alone, but the rest of the WrestleMania card is certainly taking
shape… WrestleMania 34 Plans
With Fastlane now out the way, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has given more information
on the matches already confirmed or planned for WWE’s biggest show of the year. Dave Meltzer writes that the continuation
of Shane McMahon’s feud with Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens could be a recent change to the
card, as up until last week Kami were listed for the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal. There’s speculation Daniel Bryan could potentially
be added to their Mania match, but “as of a couple of weeks ago, he was not cleared.” But Meltzer notes if Bryan was medically cleared,
it would be kept “top secret for a big announcement”. Interestingly, the Observer also reports that
Strowman was originally “booked to face Miz for the IC title” at Mania, but this
changed “to work in some form with Sheamus and Cesaro” if he wasn’t to be used as
back-up for the Lesnar vs Reigns main event. But his confrontation with The Bar “wasn’t
listed as a match at first,” just an angle. Vince McMahon apparently hasn’t made up
his mind yet on whether Strowman vs The Bar will be a handicap match, or if Braun needs
to find a partner. This will likely be announced by Kurt Angle
on Monday’s episode of Raw. Alexa Bliss vs Nia Jax for the Raw Women’s
Title is also expected to be announced “in about a week”, and the Cruiserweight tournament
final will reportedly be Cedric Alexander vs Mustafa Ali – making 14 matches at WrestleMania
in total. But while WrestleMania is WWE’s biggest
show of the year – it’s time for WrestleTalk’s biggest party ever! It’s 500K Day, SWAFT Nations! Let’s go! Click the video on the left to join me and
Luke at the party, or the link in the description below if that’s not appearing for you! Let’s Support WrestleTalk! Drive to Five complete! I’ve been Oli Davis, let’s party!

    If I was booking it? The end of the CWT would happen on the pre-show, and Spud would come out and tell the winner that he only won the tournament…to win the title he has to beat……..REY MYSTERIO! on the main show of course, and Rey loses because otherwise it's just silly, and now you have a champ that beat a "legit" opponent that has some WWE history behind him and just maybe the CW will continue to grow in meaning.

  • Reply James Simpson March 17, 2018 at 1:39 am

    They should make him choose a partner. Then Braun should then choose Bliss. Never tag her in, destroy the bar, then tag her in for the pin. And Graves should say "And they say chivalry is dead." this also only works if Bliss retains because this is exactly how you create a buzz and new stars. Not to mention it helps push the hole women's revolution thing.

    Strowman is fun but if he beats the Bar for the tag team championships I'll stop following wwe at all. I've already stopped watching but keep up with the news. Cesaro deserves better, he's main event worthy. Sheamus has put in time to earn his spot. Neither deserve to lose a handicap match.

Mud, bikini, chocolate, mystery soap, bra on a pole, strip, and many more degrading matches, dark ages that we supported. Unless the women get at least one all womens tv and ppv (like One Night Stand), hell, ever play WWE 2K series? Women are dissed…again.
