Many Stars Expected To Return Following WrestleMania
The night after WrestleMania has become the most popular episode of Monday Night Raw all year. It’s the show where NXT call-ups usually take place and superstars make their long awaited return.
This year NXT call-ups are unlikely since there have been a number of stars added to the roster over the past few months and now NXT needs the time to rebuild with the stars they have left, which means returnees could be the main focus.
Interestingly there are a number of stars who are ready to make their return right now and Mike Johnson of PWInsider Elite Audio speculated that they could be set for a return immediately following the Show of Shows.
“I haven’t heard anything about him returning specifically, but one would think that Sami Zayn has gotta be back within the next month or so, right,” he said via Ringsidenews.
Sin Cara and Luke Harper are two other names on the list who are expected to make their return in the coming weeks.
WWE Cancels Huge Match On Kurt Angle’s Farewell Tour?
Tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw is the final one on the Road To WrestleMania and one match that was announced last week saw Kurt Angle take on Rey Mysterio.
Angle’s farewell tour has been a highlight of Raw over the past few weeks and Rey Mysterio was reportedly another hand picked opponent from the Olympic Gold Medalist, but according to WWE’s summary of tonight’s episode of Raw, the match isn’t going to take place.
WWE posted the following list of bullet points on their official site, which look at all the talking points heading into Raw, but Kurt Angle isn’t one of them.
- Stephanie McMahon to make an announcement regarding the WrestleMania main event tonight
- Can WrestleMania’s main-event Superstars coexist against The Riott Squad?
- Batista returns to Raw
- Beth Phoenix returns to action in an Eight-Woman Tag Team Match
- Brock Lesnar comes to Raw to extinguish Seth Rollins’ fire
- Can Aleister Black & Ricochet convert their recent success into a Raw Tag Team Championship reign?
- Are The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection facing impossible odds at WrestleMania?
- Will Roman Reigns attain retribution against Drew McIntyre before WrestleMania?
WWE could have forgotten to add Angle’s match against Mysterio to the line up since it’s so stacked tonight, or it could have been a creative decision to axe the match from the show.
