• Possible Bad News For Lars Sullivan
As we have noted before, WWE officials have plans to do John Cena vs. Lars Sullivan at WrestleMania 35. However, things are looking bad for Sullivan after his recent anxiety attack incident.
According to Rajah, WWE was set to tape a segment between Cena & Sullivan this Monday night (which would have aired next week) to kick off their WrestleMania 35 storyline, but the taping was nixed by Vince McMahon.
As of now, it’s not clear if WWE will tape it again at a later point or if Vince doesn’t want to do Cena vs. Sullivan anymore.
Below is what Rajah reported:
“Later tonight (on Monday), WWE had planned to tape an angle where Lars Sullivan was going to beat up Cena to begin their WM storyline. Segment was supposed to air next week as Lars’ official debut. But Vince pulled the plug on that either this morning or last night.
Unclear whether this means they will try again later to do that or if the entire storyline is now scrapped.”
