If you’re new to this, the idea is pretty simple… many people feel that the #14 spot in the men’s Royal Rumble match is cursed. Less than two years after the 1990 Royal Rumble, The Rockers were competing in a tag team match against enhancement talent. There was also the Smackdown Tag Team Title reign that he had with his son, Dominik, in 2021. Kofi would also add two Raw Tag Team Title reigns and an NXT Tag Team Title reign to his trophy case. It’s amazing what can happen when there’s something on the line in a wrestling match, isn’t it?
WWE star and former NXT cruiserweight champion Santos Escobar recently spoke with WWE Español’s show “El Brunch” about a wide range of topics, including his thoughts on Zelina Vega joining Legado Del Fantasma and how it will be beneficial to all involved. On how happy he is to be on the main roster in WWE:“I am happy. I wanted to be a star in NXT, move to any of the two brands, SmackDown or Raw, and make it to WrestleMania. Zelina Vega is a superstar that knows the roads of Raw, SmackDown & WrestleMania. That is what makes the group, including myself in particular.”(H/T and transcribed by Fightful)3 months ago Wrestling Headlines

Thoughts on AEW Dynamite – January 11th, 20231. I heard Tony say that the raking/biting was “classic” Jon Moxley, since of course “vintage” has been TMed I’m sure. Takeshita/Danielson next, and though I think Takeshita will do the “almost wins but puts on a good match” thing, this should be an absolute banger. Takeshita gets rocked after doing a springboard Swanton into Danielson’s knees and ends up in his non-Regal Stretch submission finisher. We get Danielson/Bandido next week, so that’s good news too.15 days ago Wrestling Headlines
