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

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

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:
All variations of the Pile Driver;
All variations of the Power Bomb;
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;
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;
The striking of a wrestler’s head with any
object, chair, trashcan lid, etc., and…
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
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
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?

  1. It will be dean ambrose since he is joining the shield that is braun hello which he will make the best choices

  2. Why oh hwy do you speak like that. FUUUUUUUCK I cannot stand your presentation style man, its painful to the ear and cringe as fuck.

  3. Sage Lionel D'souza

    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.. 😎

  4. I really want Rey Mysterio to be Brauns partner ever sincr Kurt said Braun must have a partner. I feel like Rey is wayyy better than Brain Strowman.😂

  5. April 4th is a Wednesday and April 9th is a Monday. Was that a joke that went over my head, or did he just mess up the days/dates?

  6. 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.

  7. Makes sense because mysterio wears a necklace in his wwe entrance (as well as a necklace tat)and brauns partner shadow had one on him

  8. 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.

  9. 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.


    If they stop all wrestling moves now it would be dancing with stars instead of wrestling 😆😆😆

  11. Rey Mysterio? Come on man… that will suck so bad… They will fuck Strowman after the amazing year he had. If you want to tag him with a return put Bobby L. with him for one night.

  12. It’s dean Ambrose and Rollins is going to win the intercontinental championship title and Roman is definitely going to win the universal championship title

  13. Look at how excited all the fans in the comments were about who his partner was going to be. With all the hype, his partner ended up being… a kid

  14. Well after wrestlemania 34, this just shows you guy don't have a clue what's going to happen, just like the rest of us.
