Welcome to another edition of the daily WWE News Roundup, where we try and bring the biggest news stories and updates from the world of sports entertainment. In today’s edition, we will take a look at some interesting stories revolving around major names like John Cena, Dolph Ziggler and The Rock just to name a few.
The Rock and John Cena are arguably two of the biggest stars in WWE history and have gone on to achieve massive mainstream popularity as well. The two men have faced each other twice, with both of them getting one win each over the other. While the two are great friends now, that wasn’t always the case:
Former WWE Writer Brian Gewirtz spoke on the Under the Ring podcast about the backstage equation between John Cena and The Rock. The two men had a long program in the 2010s and faced each other at WrestleMania 28 and 29. The Brahma Bull was able to beat Cena in 2012 but lost to The Cenation Leader in 2013.
The Rock’s rematch against Cena was his last big bout in WWE. Though he faced Erick Rowan a few years later, the match lasted mere seconds. He is rumored to be returning for a match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39.
Mark Henry spoke about WWE firing The Hit Row last year as part of budget cuts on the Busted Open Podcast. The faction, consisting of B-Fab, Top Dolla, Ashante Adonis, and Swerve Strickland, were released by the company soon after they made their main roster debut on SmackDown.
Henry said that Top Dolla stood up to the management after they let go of B-Fab, resulting in his release as well:
While Swerve Strickland signed with AEW after his release, the remaining three members recently returned to SmackDown with Triple H in charge. It will be interesting to see how the group is booked without Strickland, who was the centerpiece of the stable in NXT.
Kevin Owens is a multi-time champion in WWE. He is a former Universal Champion and has also held the Intercontinental, United States and NXT Championships.
However, he is yet to become a tag team champion in the company. Speaking on the TWC Show, he said that he wanted to become a tag team champion with his real-life best friend Sami Zayn:
Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have a storied history with each other. The two men have held tag team gold before joining WWE. While they have teamed up in the company as well, they have never won a WWE Tag Team Championship yet.
Pro wrestling veteran says a current star reminds him of Stone Cold Steve Austin. More details here.
Q. Should Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn become a tag team again?
