Happy Leap Day, marks! We are officially on the road the Wrestlemania and things are popping off left and right! Tonight the WWE Universe descends upon Nashville for another HUGE night. The pre-show notes:
- Dead Man Rising: Two huge returns in back to back weeks! Last week Shane McMahon was put into a Hell in a Cell match against the Undertaker for control of the company. While we were stoked about this development, it did raise some questions. Why would the Undertaker agree to this? Who’s side is the on??? Tonight we should get some answers as the American Badass returns to the squared circle.
- Divas No. 1 Contender Match: Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks with a Wrestlemania title shot against Charlotte on the line. It’s a little surprising WWE is having this the same night as the Undertaker’s return, as it could headline an episode of Raw all on its own. No matter, hopefully the ladies get plenty of time to tear it up in the ring.
- Roman’s Face: It’s messed up! Triple H fitted the Bigg Dogg for a crimson mask last week, and apparently Roman’s nose got smashed into several pieces. Will this keep Roman off TV (and from getting booed)? Gotta tune in to find out!
- Road to Wrestlemania: With Dean Ambrose vs. Brock Lesnar already on the books, it’s time to start fleshing out the Wrestlemania card. The tag titles, the Intercontinental championship and the U.S. title are all still floating around, so expect contenders to emerge starting tonight.
That’s it! Enjoy the show and check back here at CDW for all your wrestling needs.
