WWE: Roman Reigns on WrestleMania Dream Match, Elimination Chamber Update, El Hijo del Fantasma

Roman Reigns Comments on Wanting to Face The Rock at Next Year’s WrestleMania

During WWE’s WrestleMania 37 media event in Los Angeles this past Tuesday, ESPN held an interview with Roman Reigns, who revealed that he would like to wrestle The Rock at next year’s WrestleMania.

“Hey, DJ, check it out. Not bad, right? I mean, the weather is good. Everyone is always talking about a dream match, me and him. First of all, we’re family, so it’s all love. If there was gonna be an event for him to compete in, to perform in, a venue to hold that mass scale of attention he’s gonna bring? It’s right here in your backyard. You ain’t gotta go far.”

Elimination Chamber 2020 Plans Update

As noted before, the main event of this year’s Elimination Chamber event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is currently rumored to be a Men’s Elimination Chamber match featuring Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Daniel Bryan, Shinsuke Nakamura, King Corbin, and Robert Roode. The rumor originated from a recent advertisement from the event’s host venue Wells Fargo Center.

Dave Meltzer reported in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter that his sources stated that the talent listed for the match was only meant as a placeholder for early advertisement reasons and likely will have changes made prior to the event. Meltzer also reported that Reigns is currently scheduled to win that match due to WWE having him penciled in for some time now as Bray Wyatt’s opponent for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 36.

El Hijo del Fantasma Making His NXT Debut This Weekend

WWE announced that Jorge Alcantar, formerly known as El Hijo del Fantasma and King Cuerno, will be making his official NXT debut at NXT’s house show event this Saturday in Fort Pierce, Florida.

Alcantar will be using the ring name of Jorge Bolly in NXT and will be teaming with Raul Mendoza in a tag team match at the event.

The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer reported in last week’s Newsletter that Alcantar’s NXT debut had originally been put on hold due to him suffering a knee injury shortly after his WWE signing this past September.
