While a lot of wrestlers with lucha libre connections will be in New Orleans, this is the show featuring the most interesting mix of Mexican lucha talent with modern American stars.
WWE WrestleMania marks its 34th year with some big names and matches occurring on this weekend. The last chapter, WrestleMania 30, is regarding as one of the best shows in WWE history.
Analysis: This match is a safe bet for the best match of the night honors.
Guinea Pigs, Cat Victims of Spy Poisoning in UK
Sergei and his daughter, Yulia , were hospitalised for a month after they were found unconscious on a bench in Salisbury. Salisbury District Hospital said 66-year-old Skripal was responding well to treatment and "improving rapidly".
It's a shame that this match has been placed on the kick-off show, but it felt inevitable really. That's because of NJPW's extremely smart pacing: The show usually starts with a fast-paced, high-flying match, which gets the crowd going early.
How he does that is a different matter altogether; but the build up to this dream match - if it was Wrestlemania 30 - has been phenomenal. I'm going with Alexander still, but don't be surprised to see Ali take the victory either. While Miz may not be at Rollins and Balor's level in the ring, he's become a very good worker, and I believe he'll rise to the occasion. Instead, he was relegated to an terrible angle with Enzo Amore and Big Cass that never seemed to end.
I'm expecting genuine euphoria in New Orleans when he comes out.
Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal: It's hard to pick a victor when all the participants haven't been revealed, but based on the 14 names that have been announced, I'm going with Primo Colon. The victory will be of no benefit to the victor, as the fact that the two previous winners are competing in it again highlights. Weeks ago it felt like the Red brand was ready for the big show, but now we have the final bits of clarification we need to truly anticipate Sunday's PPV. My belief is that due to his age, this might be the last time Lesnar is in a WWE ring for a Wrestlemania match.
BCCI Media Rights: Three-way Fight Ensures E-Auction Drags to Third Day
The BCCI brass is now hoping the bids would breach the Rs 7000 crore mark, resulting in windfall earnings for the cricket body. Sony India, Star India and Reliance Jio are the three bidders still in the hunt with the auction set to continue on Wednesday.
According to wrestlinginc.com, "WWE noted Carmella has held the Money in the Bank contract for 277 days". When he moved to TNA, though the product around him was mostly trash, he still helped make for some great matches that were worth seeing in isolation (particularly against Samoa Joe). There's a match between Goldust and Matt Hardy just because, there's Alexa Bliss and Mickie James making fat jokes about Nia Jax because WWE loves its women to be extremely petty and nasty, and there's the aforementioned Strowman segment, which is fun enough, if slightly underwhelming. Rusev is super over right now, and the company placing him on the card is a clear acknowledgement of that. I'm going with Big Show, but I think Samoa Joe also is a possibility. Jinder Mahal is looking to get a belt back. The Bludgeon Brothers should take the titles, but I doubt many people will leave Mania thinking of them above others.
WWE taking the title off the Bulgarian Brute would have been fine if they had something equally important in mind for him afterward.
They all pose for photos when Ronda and Steph get in each other's face. Who will his partner be? Rusev should get this win and a push, finally.
