Predicting Five Superstars Who Will Return to the WWE in 2018

0

In recent years the WWE has shown us that they love nothing more than a good old dose of nostalgia. Vince McMahon loves feeding the WWE universe some member berries and with Wrestlemania season, and the Raw 25th Anniversary show right around the corner, you can expect to see plenty of familiar faces back in the WWE in the coming weeks. While many of these faces will be just be showing up for one-offs and cheap pops, there will be a few who will be returning to the WWE for one last run. 2017 saw the returns of The Hardy Boyz, Shelton Benjamin and most notably, Kurt Angle. So just who will the WWE drag back for one last run in 2018? Hell, some of these faces might even be competing in this year’s Royal Rumble as surprise entrants. Let’s take a look at which superstars will be making a return to the company in 2018.

Batista

Batista recently mentioned on a podcast with JR that he has been talking to Vince McMahon and that he has expressed his desire to make a full time return to the company in the very near future. Batista’s last run in the company, back in 2014, is better off forgotten but this time, there is no Daniel Bryan standing in his way and you’d imagine that the company will have learned their mistakes from his last outing.

Batista has also publically expressed that if he were to return to the company, he would want to feud with his former tag-team partner Triple H, and while the fans may not be lining up to see these stars of yesteryear squaring up once again, it is a small price to pay for all the potential dream bouts Batista’s return could give us.

Steve Austin Show Unleashed Recap w/ Al Snow – Today’s Matches Too Scripted, Keeping Kayfabe Alive, Dinner Date With “Head”? More!

0

Austin welcomes Al Snow back to the show for part two of his interview.

Austin recalls trying to prepare for his debut in WWE as well as his WrestleMania 13 match against Bret Hart by attending Snow’s training school for submissions. Austin was out of action for a while before that match, and he wanted Snow’s help to knock some of the rust off. Vince McMahon thought it was a great idea and flew Austin to Snow’s school.

Snow recalls rolling around the ring with Austin at that time, attempting to teach him some submissions. Unfortunately, every time Snow would roll Austin in a certain submissive position Austin would fart. Austin beings laughing, admitting that he remembers that very well. He points out that he was probably living solely on beans and alcohol during that time.

Speaking about his introduction to the wrestling business, Snow informs that he had been watching wrestling from the very early age of 4 or 5. He watched shows from the original Sheik’s territory, but ultimately that territory fell apart due to Sheiks inability to pay talents.

Kurt Angle Not Replacing Enzo Amore on Mixed Match Challenge

0

Kurt Angle’s tweet about replacing Enzo Amore as a participant in the upcoming Mixed Match Challenge has been misunderstood by many websites as they reported Angle would actually be replacing Enzo on the series, which is incorrect.

Angle wrote, “Enzo has the flu and thus I must replace him in the Mixed Match Challenge.”

This statement was misinterpreted and Angle was actually trying to say that he is going to find someone to replace Enzo on the show. As of this writing it’s unknown who that replacement may be.

Speaking of Enzo, he has been cleared to return to action from the flu and the tournament is still almost two weeks away. This could be an indication that the decision to pull him was due to some other reason.

Candice LeRae Signing with WWE Soon?

0

It looks like Candice LeRae could be signing on with WWE full-time very soon.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest issue of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that she is currently on WWE’s radar but hasn’t been signed just yet. It’s being said that LeRae is going through the process of signing which means unless it falls through, she’ll be off the indie scene.

LeRae and Rachael Evers are the two most popular women that have been at Full Sail not under contract every time they were brought in for enhancement or extra duties.
