- We had reported yesterday about a possible injury to Rusev at the tapings for this week’s Main Event, in a match against Neville. The match that aired last night, showed that Neville had been working on the arm for the duration of the match.
When Rusev was sent out to the floor, following a springboard dropkick, WWE went to a commercial. The recording came back with Rusev still out on the floor, being checked by the ringside trainer and staff.
Following Rusev being checked on by trainers and referee, the match was awarded to Neville. Post-match, Rusev chased down the timekeeper and threw a fit. It can be speculated that the whole tantrum segment was done as an improvisation for killing time, following the match being stopped ahead of schedule.
Reports indicate the injury to be legitimate, and it is speculated to be a torn bicep, which the WWE is yet to confirm.
- The Undertaker, who is reportedly working a busier schedule since returning at Battleground this year, has been advertised by the WWE to appear on the November 10th SmackDown tapings from Manchester, England.
It would be a homecoming of sorts for ‘The Deadman’, who was for the longest time, the brand-bearer of the ‘Blue brand’. The Undertaker was exclusive to SmackDown for the most part between 2004 – 2010 and was involved in many a memorable feud with the likes of Edge, Batista, C M Punk, Kurt Angle and others.
The WWE issued the following:
WWE will embark on an 11-day tour of the United Kingdom, from 5 to 14 Nov., and sports-entertainment’s top Superstars will visit Manchester Arena for episodes of Raw and SmackDownduring the visit. With 9 Nov.’s Raw show already sold out, though, the WWE Universe is strongly encouraged to act fast if they want to see The Deadman’s first appearance in the U.K. in two years, as well as unbelievable SmackDown action in Manchester on 10 Nov.
With November marking his 25th anniversary in WWE, what destruction will The Phenom bring when he comes to Manchester?Published 29 Oct 2015, 14:49 IST
