False: We’re finally going to get a Regal comeback and world title run against Bryan.

Stop making me feel bad that his body is so wrecked he can't wrestle again due to his neck.

It's 5am and I'm bored - so I thought I would look at the top wrestling stories on Reddit for 2018. Because lets face it, it's 11 days until the new year and for all intents and purposes, nothing else of note will happen this year. Maybe this'll spark some discussion about things that have happened in the past year, or just to laugh at SquaredCircle and how WWE centric they are when it's supposed to be an all-encompassing wrestling sub. I won't be including things like memes, random pictures or one-off tweets from wrestlers, just straight up newsworthy events and news.

Quote

1. Daniel Bryan medically cleared
2. Roman Reigns' leukemia has returned
3. WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal name change
4. Vader passing away
5. Kane elected Mayor of Knox County, TN
6. Bruno Sammartino passes away
7. Renee Young joins the RAW announce team
8. Mark Henry retires
9. Dudley Boyz to be inducted into the Hall of Fame
10. Big Cass released


Some of these I honestly blanked on, like the outrage over the Moolah battle royal name. The next highest upvoted post after #3 if I didn't put limitations on the top 10 was a poster doing a deep dive into Moolah's background and why people were raging over it.

For all of that, though, I don't remember there being near as much outrage over the Saudi deal. You'd have to go 4 pages into the sub, sorted by Top (this year) to even find a mention of the Saudi stuff besides Titus' Rumble botch - and the post on page 4 is only about WWE showing an advertisement for Crown Jewel at the Evolution show. The next mention is a few posts down - an article from Kayfabe News, about "wrestling fans to boycott Crown Jewel show by shaking their heads disapprovingly at it". Which sums up Wreddit's thoughts pretty well, actually.

Casey reminded me mentioning Saudi Arabia

From the newest WON

Quote

While not announced and probably they won’t be for as long as possible to keep the heat away, they right now have May and November dates booked for Saudi Arabia. The bonuses for talent from the last Saudi show just came in. Some are happy. Some are not

So presumably the people who are happy are the ones who were on top, and the ones who are displeased were on the undercard. And the most high profile refusenik just won the World title, so anyone who was not wanting to go but feared repercussions will be emboldened next time.

Enjoy your one match show next year, boys. Trip's pec should be better by then.

I'm assuming it's mostly or entirely a work, but the Becky-Rhonda social media stuff seems a little too salty compared to the usual WWE social media "feuds" (which usually are obviously works).  If there's no animosity between those two, they really have social media kayfabe down pat.
