John Cena is a 16-time WWE World Champion and has been the face of the company for over a decade until he switched to a scheduled part-time in 2017. Many fans have wanted to see Cena make his return at this year’s WrestleMania. . . Cena also recently revealed whether or not he watches AEW Dynamite.
WWE Superstar Bayley recently spoke about the latest episode of Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette, where she revealed that John Cena helped her overcome her negativity to work on the COVID-19 pandemic with WWE forced to ban fans before WrestleMania 37.
“On the first day, I remember talking to Daniel Bryan and [John] Dinner was there. They were having a conversation and Cena said, ‘I’ve done everything, but I haven’t done this. I have not been in a WWE ring on television without fans. It is a good challenge and it will be something new that I will learn. “
That instantly changed my mindset. If we can do this, we can do anything. I got into that mentality of “we have to show that we can do this without fans and show our characters …” that we don’t have to rely on that, even though our shows have 90% interaction with fans. I’m very lucky to have Sasha with me because I could play with her. “

Leaks in Rey Mysterio’s AEW paycheck offer
Rey Mysterio may not go broke anytime soon as he is being pushed towards WWE and AEW. While Rey may be a huge draw even to this day, it’s only fitting that WWE doesn’t want to part with him, but money talks …Eva Marie ‘Squats’ in tight pants photos.
AEW offered Rey Mysterio a contract when he left WWE before his son came to WWE with him. Rey was working on circuits that weren’t up to WWE standards, but not on small circuits, however. When Rey came out, AEW approached him and offered him a large sum of money, which was more than WWE wanted to pay him to jump on their brand.
WWE then countered the offer by increasing his offer and Vince also told Rey that he would also break up with Dominik Mysterio. Rey, of course, agreed to the WWE deal for her son to join the company. All this news comes to us from Dave Meltzer.
Dave stated on the F4Wonline.com forums: “AEW matched and actually exceeded Rey’s salary, and Vince had to raise to match them and give Dominik his break to keep it up.”
Adam Pearce ‘removed’ from Smackdown
Adam Pearce did not appear on WWE Smackdown, as the creative did not want him to get in the way of Teddy Long’s return for the old school episode. Teddy Long admonished Seth Rollins in a match against Cesaro, with Cesaro winning and getting a title shot against Roman Reigns at Backlash.
He also taunted Sami Zayn with a variety of backstage matches with Sonya Deville, referencing his love for “tag team” matches.
The recent issue of A&E Biography primarily focused on WWE Hall of Famer Randy Savage and Jerry Lawler went on to share a story about him.
Jerry Lawler comments on a WCW debut
Veteran WWE commentator Jerry Lawler had shared the story about Randy Savage making his WCW debut and how Vince McMahon came to find out.
PWinsider’s Mike Johnson clarified that the story Lawler shared was “completely wrong.” It seems Lawler misremembered Lex Luger’s jump to WCW in the first episode of Nitro.
According to what Lawler said, Vince McMahon was looking for Savage to go over the Raw format but it was not the case since he was not there and they told him to watch television.
Lawler then went on to describe Vince’s non-reaction to seeing Savage on television at WCW that night.
But, Nitro did not exist when Savage left the WWF in November 1994. McMahon, live on Raw said goodbye to Savage and thanked him for his contributions to the WWF. Stephanie McMahon breaks silence on Randy Savage
Mike Johnson pointed out that Macho Man didn’t debut for WCW until a December 1994 episode of WCW Saturday Night and that was recorded.
Therefore, it is obvious that the episode did not air in front of a WWF broadcast that same night.
There could be mistakes when recalling incidents that occurred decades ago. But it’s a shame the A&E production team didn’t review the facts and broadcast them unverified.
There were also some other graphical errors that were observed during the broadcast. Lex Luger was listed as Lex Lugar.

Roman Reigns’ entry ‘ruined’ on Smackdown
Right before Roman Reigns came out, WWE put a CGI Smackdown fist on the screen, angering longtime fans who were hoping to see reality in the “old school” episode as it is in the WWE warehouse. Several fans tweeted calling it a “disappointment.” The word “terrible” was used by many fans. Jimmy Uso came out during the Reigns promo to join his stable.
WWE Superstar Roman Reigns is without a doubt one of the best Superstars in the company right now and has had a solid career as WWE Universal Champion, but he is. losing his first place to two women on WWE Smackdown. Roman Reigns successfully defended his WWE Universal Championship against WWE Hall of Famer Edge and Daniel Bryan in a triple threat match in the main event on Night Two of WrestleMania 37. Roman Reigns could have injured the best Smackdown superstar as well.
Former WWE referee Mike Chioda spoke in a recent interview with Lucha Libre Online’s Michael Morales Torres, where he spoke about Roman Reigns deserving more respect from the crowd at WrestleMania 31.
“Roman wasn’t getting the respect he deserved,” Chioda said. And Roman deserved a lot more respect at the time, I thought.
Chioda later stated that she always believed the original plan was for Seth Rollins to come down during the WrestleMania 31 main event and change his Money In The Bank briefcase.
“I remember there were two plans,” Chioda said. “There was that… (actually) I think that was the original plan for that night? They called us out of the blue, but I’m pretty sure we sorted it out that night, to be honest with you, and that was pretty much planned. “
