Let us take a look at the top 9 stories of the hour from the world of Professional Wrestling:
9. Reason Behind The Rock Being Kept Away From Roman Reigns At WrestleMania 32
Many people backstage in WWE were expecting The Rock to appear with Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 32, or help him in some way during his WWE World Heavyweight Title match against Triple H, but that didn’t happen.
Word is that The Rock’s business team kept him away from appearing with Reigns at WrestleMania 32, due to the major heat from the fans towards Reigns, which could’ve hurt The Rock in the long run.
The Rock appeared along with Roman Reigns at Royal Rumble 2015, and despite his best efforts, he could not save Reigns from getting booed out of the building by the fans.
8. Mick Foley Clarifies Recent Comments Made By His Son Regarding Triple H Hating Him
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley’s son recently noted that Triple H doesn’t like Foley. Below is what The Hardcore Legend posted about this on Facebook:
THIS MAN DOES NOT HATE ME
Despite what you may have heard, I really don’t believe Triple H dislikes me, as my son Mickey implied on his live stream – from which point the story took on a life of its own. Keep in mind, that my son Mickey is on the autism spectrum and while he is a bright and beautiful child, he doesn’t always speak with the same type of filter that most of us naturally have – and as a result, he is much more likely to say exactly what comes into his mind.
Sure, it created something of an awkward position for me – but nothing that is said or done will ever take away from the bond Triple H and I share; the bond of great matches as we were moving up the card in 1997 and 1998, and when we were on top of the card, on top of the cell – and figuratively, on top of the world in 2000. Rumors will come and go. But memories like the ones Triple H and I created will last a lifetime.
7. “I can only hope to be mentioned in the same conversation as The Rock” – John Cena
During a recent interview with The Wrap, 15 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena praised The Rock and talked about how Rock manages to return to WWE despite his busy schedule.
Below is what Cena said:
“I can only hope to be mentioned in the same conversation as him. Dwayne Johnson never forgets the passionate fans of the WWE, never forgets what the WWE did for him as a human being. He’s a stand-up guy, and the fact he’s succeeded in so many ventures in life and still always finds his way back ‘home’ — as I like to say — it’s extremely impressive, it speaks volumes of him and his character.”
