John Cena did not have a scheduled match going into WrestleMania this year as The Undertaker never answered his requests for a match at the event. True to his word, Cena did watch WrestleMania as a fan, but that was before he received word that The Undertaker arrived. After some shenanigans and trolling from Elias, The Undertaker truly did arrive at the Superdome in New Orleans to answer Cena’s challenge. The Undertaker and John Cena faced off in a peculiar match which saw “The Phenom” defeat Cena in the middle of the ring in only two and a half minutes. Perhaps Cena will get the chance to respond to his WrestleMania loss on Raw later tonight.

Just a few hours before WrestleMania began yesterday, footage of an altercation between WWE Superstar Alicia Fox and UFC fighter Travis Browne was shared online. The UK Sun posted the video of the incident, which can be found here, online, and it features Fox confronting Browne, who is the husband of new WWE roster member Ronda Rousey. Alicia Fox did not participate in the Women’s Battle Royal at WrestleMania last night, and despite reports claiming that WWE pulled her from the match because of her incident with Browne, Pro Wrestling Sheet states that WWE confirmed that Fox was not in the match because she still has not been cleared to return to the ring from her current injury yet.
During the recent NXT Takeover: New Orleans event, it was truly shocking when NXT Superstar Roderick Strong laid out his tag team partner Pete Dunne with the End of Heartache during their NXT Tag Team Championship match. Strong’s sudden attack led to Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly of The Undisputed Era retaining the tag team titles while also simultaneously winning the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic as well. Strong is now a full-fledged member of the Undisputed Era, which has led to Dunne forming his own unique team. Dunne recently saved Tyler Bate and Trent Seven from a beating at the hands of the Undisputed Era at Fan Axxess, perhaps signaling that British Strong Style will team up for the first time ever in WWE to take on the newly-formed trio.
