– Injured WWE star Finn Balor appeared at the 2017 Wizard World Comic Con New Orleans last weekend at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
Balor brought a young fan up to the stage during a Q&A, and told the fan that he hopes to be able to get Seth Rollins back at WrestleMania 33.<
– Belfast wrestler Paul Gallagher, who will be competing in the WWE UK tournament, recently spoke with UTV. In addition to discussing how he wants to follow in the footsteps of Fit Finlay, Gallagher had the following to say on how he was contacted for the tournament:
“Around six weeks ago I got an email in my inbox. There had been rumors online that WWE were scouting for UK talent so I opened the email but I had to do a double-take and thought ‘that has to be a hoax’. But then when I read it through I realized that this was legit.”
– It appears that WWE may be protecting Baron Corbin.
At this weekend WWE Live Events, Corbin worked the main event matches in a three-way against John Cena and AJ Styles. What’s interesting about these matches is that the finish of those matches concluded with Cena getting the pinfall victory over Styles. Traditionally in most-cases, the lower level Superstar normally takes the pin in a match of this caliber, however the company appears as if they are protecting Corbin.
We heard a couple week back that Corbin was rumored to receive a big push on the SmackDown brand this year. This could be an indication that the push could be starting very soon.
