Undertaker WWE Plans REVEALED! Chris Jericho WWE RETURN Announced! | WrestleTalk News Apr. 2018


Hello and welcome to the WrestleTalk News
– I’m Oli Davis. Armageddon Walks Into WWE
Monday’s post-WrestleMania episode of Raw saw the NXT call-ups of Ember Moon, the Authors
of Pain and Adam Ros-I mean No Way Jose, Paige’s retirement, the currently brandless Kevin
Owens and Sami Zayn looking for jobs, the Raw debut of NICHOLAS! and the returns from
injury of Samoa Joe and Jeff Hardy. It was such a packed episode, that another
huge return got rather lost in the shuffle: Walking Armageddon Bobby Lashley coming back
to WWE for the first time in a decade. Someone in WWE did take notice, though – Lashley’s
former TNA foe and now NXT wrestler EC3, who left a simple and rather troubled troubled
troubled troubled troubled comment on the WWE Instagram post celebrating Bobby’s return:
“oh man” Bobby Lashley Done With MMA
In his ten years away from WWE, Lashley didn’t just wrestle for TNA and IMPACT, he also holds
an impressive 15-2 record in MMA, the five most recent wins all being in Bellator since
2014. But according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling
Observer, there’s no sweet wrestling/MMA deal like the one WWE reportedly agreed with
Brock Lesnar, as Lashley will just be focusing on professional wrestling from now on:
“Yes he’s done. He was offered a spot as an alternate in [Bellator’s]
heavyweight tournament and turned it down.” And Lashley isn’t the only big time wrestler
returning to WWE… Chris Jericho WWE Return Confirmed
…as the promotion have also announced Chris Jericho will be returning for their event
later this month. In addition to Brock Lesnar vs Roman Reigns
for the Universal Championship inside a steel cage and Triple H vs John Cena, the GREATEST
ROYAL RUMBLE event will also see the first ever 50 man Royal Rumble match. And along with The New Day, Baron Corbin,
Apollo (don’t say Crews), Shelton Benjamin, Sin Cara, Elias, Chad Gable, Goldust, Titus
O’Neil, CM Punk – kidding, just checking you’re still listening, Mojo Rawley, Dolph
Ziggler, Bray Wyatt, Kane, Braun Strowman, Daniel Bryan, practically the entire main
roster – unless you’re a woman, and a returning Big Show, WWE have now also confirmed both
Kurt Angle and Jericho will be involved in the match. Aside from a Raw 25 cameo with Elias, Jericho
was last seen in a wrestling capacity attacking Tetsuya Naito at New Japan’s New Year Dash
at the start of January. This has yet to materialise into an actual
match, with Y2J even saying on Twitter that he’s done with the Japanese promotion. Although that’s exactly what someone who’s
not done with New Japan would sa- This is an insane amount of talent to put
on what is essentially a WWE Network special, with WrestleMania levels of part-time performers
appearing on the GREATEST ROYAL RUMBLE event. Cena, Jericho, Angle, Lesnar, Triple H, and,
of course, Mojo Rawley don’t come cheap, combined with the added costs of flying almost
the entire Raw and SmackDown rosters – unless you’re a woman – and backstage crews to
Saudi Arabia for the show. Whatever the specifics of the “long-term
partnership between WWE and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia” are, it’s certainly worth
an enormous amount of money. And now they’ve added another huge draw/expense
to the show… Undertaker Returning For Casket Match
As The Undertaker will also appear in a Casket Match against Rusev for the GREATEST ROYAL
RUMBLE. An announcement to which Rusev replied:
“Bury me softly, Brother” With Taker returning to wrestling in a match
against Cena at WrestleMania 34, and now competing at the GREATEST ROYAL RUMBLE just several
weeks later, it implies the Deadman is back as a part-time, big show-only performer. WrestleCrate.co.uk Discount Code: ‘WTTV’

  1. What Rusev ? On Rusev Greatest Royal Rumble ? versus The UnderTaker in a Rusev Casket Match ? Wow Its gonna be RUSEV DAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY🎶🎶🎶🎶

  2. They should run an all women show that day somewhere in the states. Unless they need all hands on deck backstage for the Greatest Royal Rumble. But they should consider running an all women's house show just to see how it'd draw.

  3. That's crazy a casket match? Makes no sense especially with no story. Although it's great that Rusev gets a match with the Undertaker it's a clear loss for no benefit unless they bury him & he's reborn as a true Babyface.

  4. Oli my man!!! I like you but please stop saying “the greatest royal rumble” so much, it’s annoying 😭

  5. yeah… really don't like where this is heading with the WWE getting bed with the Saudis…. No good can come from this. It has a bigger card than Mania did.

    I wonder what the going rate for WWE's Soul is.

  6. The casket match is now Undertaker vs Chris Jericho with rusev out of the event may be because of his tweets which may just be work lol

  7. I hope WWE at least gives the female wrestlers their own PPV seeing as how they wont be allowed in Saudi Arabia. Also, It's going to be a complete sausagefest watching the Royal Rumble there since women aren't allowed at event's in that shit hole. I guess money just matters more than equality.

  8. So is Cena going to make Taker lose the casket match? Because…Taker does not have a great casket match record lmao.

  9. Another fail report if you like this report please hit that like button and subscribe to these nuts in your mouth

  10. man, theres some MAJOR rusev drama going on, you guys should look into it…i think Michelle McCool kinda got Rusev fired.

  11. So uuummm yea Oli about that jacket,,, if your comfortable don't care what others say uuummm I never mind wear it proudly ( take that shit off) but yea I would say go for it but your coming,going and gone with the jacket,,, 😣🤔😝😝😞😢😭🤐🤐🤐😢☹😦😓

  12. Undertaker a big show only performer? Yeah, I can live with that. As long as he's at every WrestleMania, I'm happy.

    That said, when it finally comes time for him to be immortalized and inducted into the Hall of Fame, who's gonna be the one to induct him? As far as I know, everyone who's anyone in the WWE has great respect for the Undertaker. Only one gets to induct him. But who?

  13. It a bit cynical of me to think that this Greatest Royal Rumble is a lot like that MTV Show My Super Sweet 16. This is because part of me thinks some Saudi Prince or some very rich Saudi person essentially bought WWE for this event like people would buy Rock Stars and Rappers on the Sweet 16 show to put on a performance. Just this time it is hidden behind the veil of being for everyone, and not just an exclusive party. I do not really see that region of the world being worth it as much as it would cost WWE to do all of the expenses including, but not limited to: flight, hotels, food, venue rental, staffing to set everything up and run the event itself, and paying the talent. So, at least to that cynical brain of mine, I cant help but think there is some "sugar daddy" in Saudi Arabia that is taking up a rather large chunk of the bill from WWE in exchange for something or another from the Company that WWE felt was worth giving to this sugar daddy. Anyone have that hunch as well???

  14. Isn’t 1 of the best things about the rumble is ‘surprise’ entrances.
    A surprise appearance from Y2J would’ve gotten a monster pop

  15. Women's revolution they said, making a big event in a country which does not allow women to wrestle for the sake of money they never said…

  16. how dare you, i was legitimately excited when i heard CM Punk returning at the rumble, then remembered he very recently got his fight confirmed for June…..

  17. Someone explain to me why everyone is still butt hurt over no women's match? They're probably doing that for their own safety, Saudi Arabia is not particularly known for letting women do stuff.

  18. damn it Ollie you find something somewhat endearing (greatest royaaallll rumbleee) but then just end up repeating it an obnoxious amount of times. I can't wait for the greatest royal rumblw show to be over s

  19. if and I mean if CENA drops this match we have to realize cena is no able to compete with the ELITE WWE maineventers….HHH and cena have to both be hungry for a big win at this point….
