The WWE's Elias Walks Back to New Orleans on Monday Night

One of the storylines going in the Wrestlemania last April in the Superdome was that WWE Superstar John Cena wanted a match with the beloved, retired Undertaker, and because that match wasn’t made, the only way he could be at Wrestlemania was in the audience as part of the crowd. He sat in the second or third row at ringside, even during the dark matches before the official start of the show. At one point during the show, Cena jumped from his ringside seat, hopped the barricade, and ran backstage, making everybody think that he got word that The Undertaker was there.

Nia Jax Cries on the Road to Wrestlemania

When Alexa Bliss moved from Smackdown Live to Raw last year, she connived Nia Jax into being her pal/bodyguard as a way to avoid facing her in the squared circle. At the time, it looked like a program that could go to Wrestlemania with Jax as Bliss’ bodyguard/buddy until she realized she was being played. Then, they’d face each other with the crowd dying to see Bliss fight her own fights and get the payback she deserved.

The Big Show Shows How It's Done

I never loved physically big wrestlers in the WWE. They wrestled big, slow matches that were all about power, so they bored me on a couple of levels. I am proudly #neverhulkhogan, and The Great Khali and Giant Gonzales made me uncomfortable to watch because you could see that their unusual size came from the acromegaly that would afflict them more as they aged. That unhealthy undercurrent in big wrestler matches further took the fun out of them.
