Below are a couple of top WrestleMania 40 news stories of the day.

• Gunther is set to defend the Intercontinental Championship against Sami Zayn at WrestleMania 40.

With this defense, The Ring General will join 3 WWF Legends in a list of wrestlers who defended the Intercontinental Title at consecutive WrestleMania events.

Here’s this elite list:

– Randy Savage (WrestleMania 2 in 1986 and WrestleMania 3 in 1987)

– Ultimate Warrior (WrestleMania 5 in 1989 and WrestleMania 6 in 1990)

– The Rock (WrestleMania 13 in 1997 and WrestleMania 14 in 1998)

– Gunther (WrestleMania 39 in 2023 and WrestleMania 40 in 2024)

In the above list, it should be noted that Savage and Gunther have the same continuous Title reign at both events.

• On Friday’s SmackDown, a tense confrontation unfolded between Legado Del Fantasma and the LWO during a promo segment, leading to a tag team match being booked at WrestleMania 40.

Rey Mysterio took the spotlight, proposing a match that would see him team up with a partner of his choice against Santos Escobar and Dominik Mysterio.

Initially teasing Carlito as his pick, Rey surprised everyone by introducing Dragon Lee as the newest member of the LWO and his WrestleMania XL tag team partner, signaling a potential shift in alliances.

The camera captured Carlito’s reaction during this moment, suggesting a potential heel turn at the biggest show of 2024.
