Trish Stratus Vs Sasha Banks! Is Trish Stratus Back? Daniel Bryan Backstage Role! WWE NEWS! AEW NEWS

February 28, 2020


Here is your news for
February 27 2020. We’re kicking off with news from
Super Showdown, as the WWE
Superstars have had an extra day to enjoy
Saudi Arabia. Whilst the Superstars have made
it, they landed in the middle of
some pretty bad weather as there is a huge
sandstorm at the moment. Arab News reports that schools
in the area were closed on
Wednesday, and that this sandstorm isn’t expected to
die anytime soon. They said: Educational institutions in Riyadh
will be suspended on Wednesday
due to weather forecasts predicting an ongoing
dust storm will continue. “ The chartered flight from
Winnipeg that carried the
WWE roster arrived at the King Khalid International Airport
nearly an hour and a half late,
and the crew were provided with face masks
due to the storm. It’s unknown if the sandstorm
will cause a problem for Super
Showdown, as the venue is an open-air facility, as
it looks like WWE can’t catch a
break when it comes to their deal with
Saudi Arabia. Speaking of Super Showdown,
the company has added three
more matches to tonight’s card. On the Super Showdown pre-
show, the Viking Raiders will
face Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, and this comes
after the OC defeated the
Vikings to win the World Cup Tag Turmoil match at last
year’s Crown Jewel. On the main card, Angel Garza
will face Humberto Carrillo, in
the latest match as part of this feud. Garza defeated Carrillo on RAW
this week, and Humberto will be
hungry to even the score ahead of their tag
team match on next week’s
RAW, which will see Garza and Andrade face
Carrillo and Rey Mysterio. NXT’s Mansoor, who is from
Saudi Arabia, will also
appear, as he’ll face Dolph Ziggler tonight, following his
victory in the 50-Man battle
royal at Super Showdown 2019, and defeating
Cesaro at Crown Jewel last
October. The Super Showdown pre-show
will begin on the WWE Network
at 11am EST, with the main card starting an
hour later. The show will take place from
the Mohammed Abdu Arena
on the Boulevard in Riyadh, with a total 10 matches
announced. Including the three previously
discussed, there will be a
Tuwaiq trophy Guantlet match, as well as Seth Rollins
and Murphy defending their
RAW tag titles against the Street Profits. The SmackDown Tag Champions
the New Day will also defend their
titles against Miz and Morrison, whilst Smack
Down Women’s Champion
Bayley and Naomi will make history in the first-ever
women’s title match in Saudi
Arabia. Roman Reigns will take on King
Corbin in a steel cage, whilst
Ricochet will hope to take the WWE Championship
from Brock Lesnar. In what will likely be the main
event, the Universal Champion
‘The Fiend’ Bray Wyatt will face Goldberg, who
is hoping to enter Wrestle
Mania with the Universal title for the second time of
his career. From one Hall of Famer to two
future inductees, as the Bella
Twins will be entering the elite group this
year, but they didn’t know
what to think when they got the call. When both Bellas appeared on
WWE Backstage, Brie revealed
that Vince McMahon called them himself,
leading her to worry that her
sister’s mouth had got them in trouble. She said: “It’s funny when Nikki and I got
the called, Vince [McMahon]
called us both. We saw his missed call and my first
reaction was, ‘Nikki, what did
you say in the press?’ We thought we were in
trouble, we called Vince back,
together, and when he told us, we were shocked,
‘What? This year?’” “When you’ve worked hard for
so long and have fought for
so many things and have the one man who you not
only look up to so much, but
also gave you incredible opportunity,” Nikki
responded. “To have him call
and—Vince said the sweetest things.” We can’t imagine how worrying
it must be to see that Vince
McMahon is calling, but being informed of your
upcoming induction the Hall
of Fame is definitely one of the preferred reasons. The pregnant twins will join
Batista and the NWO as this
year’s Hall of Fame class, and whilst the British Bulldog
Davey Boy Smith, Jushin
‘Thunder’ Liger and JBL have also been reported as
inductees into this year’s
class, these haven’t been confirmed by WWE. We’re looking at another Hall
of Famer now, as Trish
Stratus has done it all in wrestling, and though she is
considered retired following
her SummerSlam 2019 match against Charlotte
Flair, that may all change
very soon. During the 2018 Women’s
Royal Rumble, Stratus had
a face to face with Sasha Banks, and during a recent
teaser video, celebrating 20
years of Stratusfaction, the video flashed a quick image
of Stratus and Banks at the
end. Fans online were quick to pick
up on the tease, many of
whom that are hopeful that we’ll see the 7-time
Women’s Champion wrestle
again, against the Boss. Time will tell whether Trush will
come out of retirement, but
following her Summerslam match, it’s clear
that the Canadian legend can
certainly still go in the ring. We’re looking at NXT now, as
this week’s show started with
Cameron Grimes defeating Dominik Dijakovic,
whilst Finn Balor appeared
in the ring next. Saying he’s not an internet guy
or a stooge guy, but rather
THE guy, Balor mentioned his success in Japan,
Mexico and WWE, and also
claimed that with WrestleMania drawing near, he
wanted to see who will join Matt
Riddle, Johnny Gargano and Ilja Dragunov in
getting the Finn-Rub. Balor’s promo was cut short by
the Imperium’s Marcel Barthel
and Fabian Sichner, who said that NXT belongs to
their ring general WALKTER,
and quickly made work of the former Universal
Champion. When Balor went for a running
shotgun dropkick on the floor,
Barthel levelled him with a flying European Uppercut
off the steel steps, and the
segment ended with the two Imperium members
standing tall over the fallen
Balor. Up next, fans saw Xia Li defeat
Mia Yim, before both were
attacked by Raquel Gonzalez, and this was followed
by Tomasso Ciampa also being
the victim of a post-match beatdown, as he
was attacked by Johnny
Gargano after defeating Austin Theory. After Killian Dain defeated
Bronson Reed, and the
Grizzled Young Veterans picked up the win over the Forgotten
Sons, it was time for the main
event, as Charlotte Flair’s return to the Gold brand
brought a big fight feel. Charisma like Flair’s is something
that is needed in NXT right now,
and one fan, who yelled something at Flair
early in the match, got a reply,
and though we don’t know what the Queen said, it
seemed to have a ripple effect
in the crowd, who heavily booed the 10-time
Women’s Champion. This naturally caused the
audience to be very pro-Belair,
who was controlled by Flair during the break, which
fans were able to see on the
final hour’s inset screen on the USA Network. Fighting back, Belair handed an
impressive handspring
moonsault to get a two count, as the crowd was roughly
split 60-40 in favour of the EST
of NXT. Despite missing a moonsault of
her own, Flair landed on her
feet and revered Belair’s own moonsault counter
by grabbing her legs and
flipping her over into a Boston Crab. In the final moments of the match,
Belair exploded with a spear, that
was met by a Spear when the Queen herself
that won her the match, and
though at attempted post match beatdown with a
chair was cut short by NXT
Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley, the message was sent
to her WrestleMania opponent. Although Ripley will have her
hands full when she faces the
Queen at WrestleMania, NXT General
Manager William Regal is
already looking to crown a new number one contender for
the Australian’s Women’s title. During this week’s show, Regal
announced that a number of
qualifying matches will start next week, with the
winners advancing to a ladder
match at TakeOver Tampa. The winner of said ladder match
will be the new number 1
contender for the NXT Women’s Championship, and
this wasn’t the only big
announcement by Regal. A steel cage match between
Tegan Nox and Dakota Kai
was announced after their street fight at TakeOver Portland
ended with Raquel Gonzalez
helping Kai get the win, but now a second cage
match has been added to
next week’s show. During last night’s NXT, a video
from Velveteen Dream said he
wants the cage left up so he can face Roderick
Strong next week, and Strong
accepted, saying he will end the dream for good. The feud between Strong and
Dream resumed when the
Velveteen One returned to NXT TV three weeks ago,
after spending nearly four
months on the shelf with a back injury. Dream has been taunting
Strong’s family lately, leading
to a main event match on last week’s NXT which saw
Dream win, but given that he
was laid bout after the bell by all four members of the
Undisputed Era, it’s clear that
this feud isn’t dying down anytime soon. We’re taking a break from the
ring now, as WWE Superstars
are public figures, and anyone in the public eye
runs the risk of someone
trying to steal their identity. NXT Superstar Tegan Nox
discovered this first hand
recently, as she found an Instagram page claiming to be
her, and the Welsh star had to
let her fans know that this wasn’t the case. Unfortunately, scammers
pretending to be wrestlers to
take advantage of fans is nothing new, and indie star
Gentleman Jervis recently
discovered that his identity had been appropriated by
someone else to scam fans
for at least two years. Tegan Nox letting fans know
that she’s the real deal
probably won’t stop the trend of scammers lifting pro-wrestlers
identities, but at least his
account will hopefully get shut down thanks to the
truth coming to light. Over to SmackDown now, and
Daniel Bryan hasn’t been the
same since he lost to Bray Wyatt in their Universal
title Strap match at the Royal
Rumble. In recent weeks, this storyline
has seen both Heath Slater
and Drew Gulak appear, with the story being that Gulak
wants to help Bryan with
mistakes in the ring. According to sources, this story
is Bryan’s idea, and that the
incorporation of both Gulak and Slater is down to
the former WWE Champion,
as he is friends with them and know that they are
underutilised. “Bryan pitches a lot of his own
ideas,” a WWE source said.
“Sometimes Vince [McMahon] and Bruce [Prichard]
will turn down an idea but a lot
of the things he has pitched have been
used on TV.” The same source from WWE
also said that Bryan will
probably have a job offer behind the scenes when he’s
ready to retire on his own
terms, as he’s considered one of the smartest stars in the
company right now, and
everyone respects his wrestling knowledge. With WrestleMania 36 around
the corner, Bryan currently
doesn’t have anything planned for the show of shows,
though there have been talks
of him facing Sheamus in Tampa, to play off
the Irishman’s 18-second win
at WrestleMania 28 in 2012. Fans will remember that this win
caused a huge backlash on
social media, leading to the Yes Movement and a
bigger push for Bryan, that
culminated in him becoming one of the most
popular WWE Superstars
in recent history. We’re looking at AEW Dynamite
now, as this week’s show kicked
off with an exciting Iron-Man match
between Kenny Omega
and Pac. After half of the allocated 30
minutes went by without a win,
it was Omega who got the first point, though only
because he was levelled in
the head with a steel chair, causing PAC to get
himself intentionally disqualified. This strategy paid off, as Pac
quickly got a pin to even the
score, and whilst both men tried to get that deciding
point over the remaining 13
minutes, the match ended at 1 win each. Going into overtime, it was
ultimately Omega who got
the elusive second point thanks to a one winged angel,
proving that he is still a big
name in AEW. Post-match, a segment
featuring Pac and Orange
Cassidy unfolded, and after knocking Cassidy down with a
strike, Tony Schiavone
announced that the pair will face off at AEW Revolution. The pair have a history dating
back to November last year,
when Pac kicked Cassidy in the face, after
somehow surviving the
brutal kicks of Cassidy. Up next, the Jurrasic Express
got a huge win over the Inner
Circle’s Santana, Ortiz and Sammy Guevara, whilst the
Best Friends defeated the Butcher
and the Blade via pinfall. In Women’s division action,
Hikaru Shida defeated Big
Swole, Yuka Sakazaki and Shanna, whilst Jim Ross had a
sitdown interview AEW Tag
Champions Kenny Omega and Adam Page, as well
the Young Bucks, who they will
meet at AEW Revolution. During Dyamite, it was also
announced that Lance Archer
has signed a multi-ear deal with AEW, and will make
his promotional debut on
next week’s show. Just days shy of his 43rd birthday,
Archer has spent the past here
years in New Japan, working in both tag and
singles competiton, and
recently held the IWGP US Title, before losing the gold to
Jon Moxley during night one of
January’s Wrestle Kingdom. Speaking of Moxley, the former
WWE Champion appeared
next in the main event, as he was part of a weigh-in
with AEW Champion Chris
Jericho, ahead of their title match at Revolution. After Moxley weighed in at a
respectable 234 pounds, Le
Champion took is sweet time taunting the crowd,
causing Moxley to head butt
him with bust Jericho open. This quickly caused the Inner
Circle to strike, and whilst
Dustin Rhodes, and Darby Allin tried to make the save,
Dynamite ended with Jericho
standing tall over his Revolution foe, thanks to a
Paradigm Shift of his own. Now, the final card for
Revolution will see Jericho
face Moxley, Omega and Page defend their titles against the
Young Bucks, and Nyla Rose
defending her AEW Women’s title against Kris
Stadtlander. Also on the Pay Per View, Pac
will face Orange Cassidy,
Sammy Guevara takes on Darby Allin, Dustin Rhodes
will face Jake Hager, and
Cody will look to get revenge on MJF, giving fans of AEW
plenty of reasons to tune in. And finally today we’re ending
with news from Aleister Black,
as the former NXT Champion looks to be getting
a push. It certainly helps Black that
Paul Heyman is a fan of his
and vice versa, and Black has come a long way from his
WWE debut under his former
name Tommy End. During an appearance on the
Bump, Black discussed his
debut, as he competed as End in the UK Title tournament,
and also wrestled Neville that
day, who is now known as Pac. It turns out that Pac wasn’t the
only future AEW Star Black
worked with that day though, as he revealed on
the Bump: “Earlier in the day I had
competed at Progress
against a guy who was at Progress at the time named
Jimmy… Havoc. I got in a car
with Finn Balor and came there and within 20 minutes I
was in the ring with Neville.” “It was just like the first time I
had to get used to the way
WWE’s production is. All the shots and all the camera
angles and just ‘this is what
we’re doing.’ I wasn’t used to something this highly
professional.” Though Black would describe
those early days in WWE as
a sink or swim moment, it’s clear that the Dutchman
learned to swim despite
being unable to defeat Neville, as he is now one of the
most popular stars on the
company’s main roster.
