SRS is reporting that Stone Cold has been pitched a segment with someone that goes YEEEAHH   a lot. 


Lil Jon is going to make a comeback?

Once they announced Miz was hosting I assumed he was going to eat a finish from some legend or HOF guy.

All I know is, if the edible hits at the right moment, this will be the funniest segment in Wrestlemania history.  

Knight better be working on an absolutely ridiculous sell of the stunner.  

If he can't beat the Rock's or Onryo's should he even try?

The WWE has since announced that these are the 4 teams

Also per Meltzer from earlier


As mentioned by Dave Meltzer in both his Sunday daily update and appearance on Sunday Night's Main Event, Bray Wyatt is dealing with an illness that has kept on the sidelines in WWE.

He was supposed to be on Friday's SmackDown, but missed the show due to the unspecified illness.

On SNME, Meltzer said that when he asked WWE about whether the planned match between Wyatt and Bobby Lashley was still on for WrestleMania 39, he didn't get a definitive answer either way.

Meltzer said Wyatt is still with the company and that his gut instinct is the match is "up in the air" for whether it actually happens with less than two weeks to go before WrestleMania weekend.

The match hasn't been mentioned on WWE TV since the Monday, March 6th Raw.

Wyatt was pulled from a Madison Square Garden house show earlier this months with no reason given. Since returning last year, Wyatt has wrestled on TV just once, that being at January's Royal Rumble against LA Knight in a Pitch Black match. He has been working with Knight in SmackDown dark matches and house shows, but hasn't been in action since February 26th.

Did they actually say this was for the US Title? 

Considering Cena does have a special relationship with the US Title, you'd certainly think it would be. The Open Challenge-era was awesome!

To me the two most intriguing results are Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship and GUNTHER vs. Sheamus vs. Drew McIntyre for the WWE Intercontinental Championship.

Roman Reigns epic WWE Universal Championship reign is over 900 days and if he loses he'll miss out a year long WWE Championship reign by a day I believe. Do WWE push on for Roman Reigns to make 1,000 days or does Cody Rhodes a year after coming back to the WWE at WrestleMania XXXVIII win the titles on the grandest stage of them all? Shame Roman's long reign wasn't with the belt that means the most, the WWE Championship. So few have held it a year. That's the world title to win with all its history dating back years.

Do you keep the WWE Intercontinental Championship on GUNTHER to keep him on track to break the Honky Tonk Man's record as the endgame? Does Sheamus win the WWE Intercontinental Championship, the missing championship in his collection? I think this was made as a Triple Threat to get Drew McIntyre on the show and if GUNTHER is to drop the title, McIntyre is there to take the fall. Triple H and GUNTHER have rebuilt the prestigious WWE Intercontinental Championship again.

I really hope Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley doesn't main event night one. I'm all for parity between men and women, it's for a world title with the Royal Rumble match winner but sometimes a match is bigger. See Undertaker's Streak matches particularly the Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XXV and Undertaker vs. Triple H at WrestleMania XXVIII. I see a repeat of Triple H vs. Chris Jericho at WrestleMania X-8 and Triple H vs. Randy Orton at WrestleMania XXV. The Usos vs. Kevin Owens/Sami Zayn for the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship has to go on last. The Bloodline story is one of the best in wrestling history and deserves to headline. Be so refreshing to see a Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship match headline WrestleMania for the first time.

This year (or really the last two years) has been all about The Bloodline.  So go ahead and main event both nights with the Bloodline saga.  Nothing against the women's titles but neither title match is hot enough to main event a night. 

Gotta keep washed Charlotte happy, brother.

Whether or not the tag titles match main events night 1 is dependent on how it plays into Roman/Cody.

None of the women's matches have been built up as main events so why anyone is worried/arguing about it I have no idea. Edge/Finn or Rey/Dom have higher chances at this point.

Some dirtsheets said that Charlotte/Rhea was penciled in. 

Anything is possible but they have never opened or closed Raw/Smackdown during their current feud. Just feels like random guessing which is what dirtsheets have a bad tendency to do half the time.
