In recent weeks there has been a lot of talk about all those great athletes and celebrities who could appear after years or even for the first time in the WWE rings at Wrestlemania 38. If for the moment the only one confirmed for a match at Wrestlemania is Logan Paul, famous American actor and youtuber, who will join forces with The Miz, in a tag team match against Rey and Dominik Mysterio, there are numerous other names considered for the Showcase of the Immortals.
Another celebrity who will surely tread the Wrestlemania rings, will in fact be Johnny Knoxville, who returned to show up in the last episode of Friday Night Smackdown, just two days ago, being brutally attacked by the new Intercontinental Champion of the blue show, Sami Zayn.
Most likely, the two will in fact go to clash in a match at the Showcase of the Immortals, in a contest that will just as likely see the Canadian put his newly won champion belt up for grabs against the Japanese Nakamura.
But who else could take part in WWE's biggest show of the year of wrestlers or insiders who don't usually get in the ring? Apparently, the last great names brought up by WWE insiders would be those of Stone Cold Steve Austin, rumored in a match against Kevin Owens and even the WWE Chairman, Vince McMahon, who could go to battle with the reporter Pat McAfee.
Apparently, on the Thursday before Wrestlemania 38, Stone Cold Steve Austin will be present at a convention in his home state of Texas, with this latter clue that brings the WWE Hall of Famer even closer to his probable presence in that of the Grandest Stage of Them All.
Although it is not yet known for sure that Austin will participate in the event, let alone that the Hall of Famer will take part in a match in any way, what is certain is that a few days before the live broadcast of the most important ppv of the year, Austin will be one step away from Dallas, with the same Hall of Famer who has in fact advertised the event in which he will be a guest, writing on Instagram:
and Rhea Ripley: how many problems in WWE!
In January former Renee Young, now Renee Paquette, gave an interview to Busted Open Radio saying, "Can you believe this is happening for Rhea Ripley? I can't believe it.
She's amazing, she's just like this perfect package that she's ready to go. She's young but she's so adaptable, I think she's amazing. I can't believe she's someone who could be lost in thin air for a second.
" Also adding, "I want to see what they will do with this. Like we were saying with Rhea. Sometimes you find yourself stuck fighting against the creative team and what other people's vision is for you, maybe. I know how it can be an uphill battle.
But I think Nikki is so determined to do all the things her character wants to do. I'm sure she has some kind of vision map at home, of the things she might like to do. So let's hope she gets to engage other people and bring to complete some of these things.
" Despite the good performance of the wrestlers on the Raw roster at WWE Elimination Chamber, because in fact all the athletes present were from the red show, the great success that Bianca Belair is having and the compliments that seem to have been shot backstage after the last episode following the excellent contention between EST and Doudrop, someone is still not happy with how the whole situation is managed.
In his latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, journalist Dave Meltzer talked about all the booking of Raw's women's division, focusing more on what surrounds Nikki A.S.H. and Rhea Ripley, who seem stuck in this never-ending feud.
"I don't know what they're doing. It wasn't obvious looking at it. They had no one else to beat and they would have done it again. At this point, I can't see them doing it again, but ... Next Monday they can come. and come up with, 'Hey, we want Rhea Ripley to get a win, who do we have to throw at her?"
