The Kingslayer Seth Rollins is the winner of the 2019 Royal Rumble match, and at WrestleMania 35 in New Jersey, Rollins will get a chance to face either Daniel Bryan or Brock Lesnar for a shot at one of their respective titles.
WWE has released a new video featuring Rollins commenting backstage after his Rumble match win and offering his thoughts on who he might face at WrestleMania.
WWE also released a video featuring Becky Lynch commenting on her Rumble match win, and during the video Lynch makes it clear she wants to headline WrestleMania 35.
‘WWE Halftime Heat’
During Sunday’s Royal Rumble PPV, WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels made an interesting announcement, that for the first time ever, the stars of NXT will compete in a six man tag team match during halftime of the Super Bowl next Sunday.
WWE is calling the match “Halftime Heat”, and it will feature the team of Velveteen Dream, Aleister Black and Ricochet vs Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa and Adam Cole.
Jericho Rips WWE & Brock Lesnar
Since announcing he has signed with All Elite Wrestling, Chris Jericho is not holding his tongue as it pertains to other promotions, and following the Royal Rumble PPV he fired several shots at Brock Lesnar and WWE.
Taking aim at The Beast, Jericho told him to lose his gut, then made it clear to promotions such as Impact Wrestling, Ring of Honor and WWE that AEW is not interested in taking their talents, with the exception of about 6 to 8 stars.
“Intimidation and fear goes a LONG way in our business guys,” Tweeted Y2J. “But let’s be honest, Brock Lesnar needs to pull up his pants and lose the gut… the dream is over dude. I don’t play by the script…”
As noted, Jericho had been negotiating with both Impact Wrestling and WWE prior to announcing his signing with AEW, and when it came down to making a decision, it appears as if AEW ended up making Y2J the best offer, as he noted during a recent episode of his podcast that it is the best pro wrestling deal he has ever signed.
