• Huge Spoiler On Roman Reigns’ Universal Title Reign
“The Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns will defend the Universal Championship against Brock Lesnar later this month at the WWE Crown Jewel 2021 pay-per-view.
According to Wrestlingnewsco, Roman’s Universal Title reign will not come to an end in 2021.
This is because WWE doesn’t plan on ending Reigns’ feud with Lesnar at Crown Jewel, and wants to do more matches between them.
One of the reasons behind this move is the availability of The Rock. If The Rock doesn’t return for a highly-anticipated match against Reigns at WrestleMania 38, then Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar is the next biggest match possible at the Show of Shows.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (October 10, 1999) – Heroes of Wrestling
On this day in Pro Wrestling history on October 10, 1999, Fosstone Productions aired ‘Heroes of Wrestling’ LIVE on PPV from the Casino Magic in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi.
This should have been the first in a series of 4 PPVs, that would feature Old School 80s & 90s WWF/NWA/WCW Legends, but due to a low buy rate of only 29,000 pay-per-view buys, the plans for more events were canceled.
Jake Roberts appeared intoxicated (drunk and/or high) for his co-main event match against Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, which is why promoter Bill Stone sent out the wrestlers that were scheduled for the main event, King Kong Bundy & Yokozuna, to team up with them, thus putting the 2 main events together into a Tag Team main event, in order to salvage the situation.
While this PPV has a very bad reputation among the internet fans, some calling it “The worst PPV ever” like Dave Meltzer wrote in 1999, the event itself was still a lot more entertaining than 99% of the modern day WWE PG-Era (2008-now) shows.
Here are the PPV results:
The Samoan Swat Team defeated Marty Jannetty & Tommy Rogers
Greg Valentine defeated George Steele
2 Cold Scorpio defeated Julio Fantastico
The Bushwhackers defeated The Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff
Tully Blanchard defeated Stan Lane
Abdullah the Butcher vs. One Man Gang ended in a double-count-out
Jimmy Snuka defeated Bob Orton Jr.
Jim Neidhart & King Kong Bundy defeated Jake Roberts & Yokozuna
