• Major Update On The Future Of World Titles & Brand Split After WrestleMania 38 Title Unification Match
WWE first announced a “Winner Takes All” match between WWE Champion Brock Lesnar and Universal Champion Roman Reigns for the main event of WrestleMania 38 – Night 2.
Then on Friday’s SmackDown, WWE announced that this main event will be a Title Unification Match.
This began speculation that WWE is going to end the Brand Split soon, as there will be one World Champion after WrestleMania.
However, that’s not the case.
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that the brand split won’t end and there might be two World Champions once again after the Title Unification match:
“The deal here is that it is a unification match and from what I am told, it’s the same idea as the last time they unified the titles.
Remember like 20 years ago when they did, and then like a week later they just handed a belt to Triple H?
I was told that it is not feasible in the modern environment to not have each brand, given the two networks, have a champion. So this will be a unification match, and then they will, not forget about it, but there will be two champions.”

• Old School ECW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School ECW Veteran Masato Tanaka celebrates his 49th birthday today.
Masato Tanaka made a name for himself in his home country Japan while wrestling for the hardcore promotion Frontier Martial-Arts Wrestling during the 90s, but North American Old School wrestling fans mostly remember him for his time in Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling from 1998 until 2000.
In late 1999, he defeated Mike Awesome to become the first non-American ECW World Heavyweight Champion, but that reign only lasted a week.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MASATO TANAKA!
