The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.

WWE SmackDown Results:

  • Drew Gulak def. Shinsuke Nakamura, earning Daniel Bryan an Intercontinental Championship match at Wrestlemania
  • Alexa Bliss def. Asuka
  • New Day vs The Usos goes to a no-contest; both teams will face Miz & Morrison at Wrestlemania in a ladder match for the SmackDown Tag Team Championships

John Cena has been challenged by Bray Wyatt to a Firefly Funhouse match. It appears the rumors of a cinematic-style matchup between the two will be true. How it will look is anyone’s guess, but the extra production could help break up the already strange Wrestlemania card. If it leans into the weird like The Final Deletion, it could be a surprise hit.

Baron Corbin tried to kill Elias, a la Lion King. This sure was one way to get some heat into a thrown-together program.

Also it looks like we are getting Dolph Ziggler versus Otis at Wrestlemania. They had a confrontation backstage, and it seems like Mandy Rose isn’t a fan of being someone’s “prize”.

On Thursday night we learned that Roman Reigns would not be participating in Wrestlemania 36. Friday had more reports of wrestlers not being on the Wrestlemania card. First, WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champion The Miz is out according to PWInsider. According to the reports, Miz was in Orlando but did not work the Wrestlemania tapings. 

Another wrestler pulled from the Wrestlemania card is Andrade. According to the reports, Andrade was pulled due to a rib injury suffered on Raw this week (h/t WrestlingInc). He was scheduled to be a part of the Raw Tag Team Championship match with Angel Garza against the Street Profits. Now he will be replaced by NXT wrestler Austin Theory in the match.

Murphy has also been pulled from the tapings for the Raw after Wrestlemania. Reports indicate that Murphy was “not cleared to appear” and missed the tapings for that show (h/t WrestlingInc).

One for the Road:

Nikki Cross is not great at social distancing.
