The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.
Wrestlemania To Be Taped This Week
The ever-evolving saga of Wrestlemania continues to change. Latest reports from PWInsider indicate that Wrestlemania will be taped on Wednesday & Thursday nights this week from the Performance Center. WWE will also be taping the next weeks of Raw & SmackDown this week as well.
WWE has changed Wrestlemania to a two-night event this year, hosted by Ex-NFL star Rob Gronkowski. The show will be taped this week, and there will also be “additional content” filmed in other locations for the Wrestlemania broadcasts. This year will have one of the strangest Wrestlemania experiences of all time.
Impact Rebellion Cancelled
More wrestling events have been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Impact Wrestling has apparently cancelled Rebellion which was scheduled for April 19 in New York City (h/t WrestlingInc). The event is listed as cancelled by the ticket seller, even though Impact has not announced the cancellation publicly.
Get Your Wrestling Fix:
WWE has uploaded a lot of full matches, especially Wrestlemania matches. Classics like Razor Ramon-Shawn Michaels from Wrestlemania X and Shawn Michaels-Ric Flair from Wrestlemania 24 have been added. If you’re looking for some wrestling to watch without the network, they’ve got you covered:
Ring of Honor has uploaded some amazing compilations. They’ve got hour-plus long videos of Samoa Joe, Kevin Owens, Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, and Sami Zayn’s best friend El Generico on their Youtube channel.
Impact has uploaded the entirety of their 2005 Lockdown pay-per-view for our viewing pleasure.
One for the Road:
R-Truth is once again your reigning, defending, WWE 24/7 Champion! Should’ve stayed at home, Riddick.
