#5 Top WWE NXT Superstar determined to face and defeat Roman Reigns one day

NXT Superstar Bron Breakker has claimed that he will fight and defeat Universal Champion Roman Reigns one day. In a recent interview with ViBe & Wrestling, Breakker named possible opponents for himself on the main roster.

Other than Reigns, the list also included the likes of Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, WWE Champion Big E, and Drew McIntyre.

“I will fight Roman Reigns one day, for sure. I will beat him one day too. As far as RAW goes, obviously Seth Rollins. There are just tons of guys between both brands. Bobby Lashley is another one. Big E is obviously WWE Champion right now. Drew McIntyre too,” said Breakker.

Bron Breakker has quickly established himself as a top star on NXT in a very short time. At the recently concluded WarGames event, he represented Team 2.0 in the WarGames match and pinned NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa to win the match for his team.

He certainly has the looks and talent to make it big one day on WWE’s main roster as well.

#4 Kairi Sane has teased an in-ring return

Former WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Kairi Sane has teased an in-ring return to pro-wrestling. Sane signed with the company in 2016 and achieved huge success on both NXT as well as the main roster.

Her in-ring career with WWE came to an end last year as she moved back to Japan where she started working as an ambassador. Recently, she changed her Instagram handle from “kairi_wwe” to “official_kairi.”

The former NXT Women’s Champion also teased an in-ring return by reacting to a fan’s tweet. Fans are excited to see the Japanese star make her return to the ring in the future.

WrestleMania season is approaching soon and like every year, fans have started wondering whether The Undertaker could return for one more match. Ric Flair recently stated on his podcast that he doesn’t think The Phenom will return for another match.

“He doesn’t need the money obviously. He’s been so successful. I think he is so wrapped up with Michelle and the kids and his family… It goes to show you the star power that these guys bring. When they’re sending Steve Austin to Dallas and The Undertaker to Dallas to promote WrestleMania, trust me, everybody else on the roster is having a hard time keeping up with them….you just can’t replace those two legendary characters in terms of doing P.R. for you,” said Ric Flair.

The Undertaker has officially announced his retirement from WWE. However, with WrestleMania 38 taking place in Texas, fans are hopeful to see him at least make an appearance at the show in some capacity.

#2 Vince Russo thinks Nikki A.S.H. could be released from WWE soon

Former WWE writer Vince Russo has heavily criticized the company’s booking of Nikki A.S.H. During the latest episode of Sportskeeda Wrestling’s Legion of RAW, he claimed that Nikki could, unfortunately, be a part of the next round of releases.

“It’s not even the flavor of the month because they don’t even go a month with a person. It’s like the flavor of two weeks… Remember Nikki Cross was the flavor, bro? For a couple of weeks? Now, Zelina Vega is the flavor. Every two weeks, it’s a different flavor. I can’t believe I’ve got to sit here and say, and you’re never going to get anybody over that way… Future endeavors. Next round, bro, she is done,” admitted Vince Russo.

Nikki A.S.H. is currently part of the roster of RAW, where she has formed a tag team with Rhea Ripley. Their booking hasn’t been consistent, which has frustrated many fans as well.


#1 Mark Henry suggests secret “underlying deal” angle between Sami Zayn and Paul Heyman

 

Mark Henry has suggested an interesting angle in the ongoing SmackDown storyline between Sami Zayn, Brock Lesnar, Paul Heyman, and Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

Speaking on the Busted Open Radio show, Henry suggested that Heyman and Zayn could have an underlying deal. As part of this deal, Sami Zayn could help The Tribal Chief retain his title against The Beast Incarnate at Day 1 and then get a title shot for himself.

“Maybe the revenge factor is in. You’re talking about turning the business on its ear, with all the stuff that’s going on, imagine the Sami parade if he pulled the rug from under and there was some underlying deal with Paul Heyman that would get him a title shot. See, that’s how my brain works. I want everybody to think, like, ‘That was crazy!’ And we don’t get that much,” said Mark Henry.

Zayn has been on the receiving end of brutal beatdowns at the hands of Lesnar on SmackDown for the last two weeks. It is to be seen how WWE plans to go ahead with this angle now.
