Undertaker not working WM35?
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, it is believed Undertaker will not work WrestleMania with some officials confirming that notion and others playing coy on it.
PW Insider says the Deadman is in New York, but that doesn’t mean he will work the show. It had been suggested he could interrupt Elias’ musical performance.
Original plans for Asuka
The initial idea for Asuka and the SmackDown Live Women’s title was to face Sonya Deville and Mandy Rose in a triple-threat match.
Of course, Asuka would drop the Women’s title to Charlotte two weeks ago in a decision Vince McMahon made on the day.
