WWE News Today 4/21/17 – Where Have Triple H and Stephanie McMahon Been? Vader Faints in Japan, Paige Return

  • Triple H and Stephanie are currently on vacation in the Caribbean and have posted photos on instagram. It is being said that the reason Stephanie was put through a table at Wrestlemania is so she could have time off for this vacation.
  • Vader fainted after a match in Japan during a ceremony for Tatsumi Fujinami. This was the aftermath of a 6-man tag team match involving Vader and Fujinami at Korakuen Hall. Vader was able to regain consciousness and leave on his own. He later claimed it had nothing to do with his heart and that it was something involving his head.
  • Roman Reigns is off for the weekend events for the Raw Brand but is being advertised for WWE Raw this Monday Night at the Sprint Center in Kansas City.
  • There are high hopes at the top of the WWE management totem poll for Baron Corbin. Even with the rise in interest for Braun Strowman, Corbin is considered to have more potential of the two. Baron is now being groomed for a WWE Championship match later this year. This is said to be a driving force behind why Jinder Mahal was put in the title picture in order to buy time for Corbin to be as prepared as possible for the opportunity. A major overhaul in his gimmick could be underway including new entrance music.
  • Even with the plans for Corbin to be elevated to the WWE Championship picture, expect AJ Styles to get a title opportunity against Randy Orton before then on the Smackdown Brand.
  • Paige’s neck has healed up but the Wrestling Observer reports that WWE has no plans for her to return at this point.
  • The Bollywood Boyz have been renamed the Singh Brothers to serve in a factor headed by #1 Contender to the WWE Championship Jinder Mahal.

Seth Rollins KingSlayer T-Shirt

Last Monday on WWE RAW, Seth Rollins made his return to save Mick Foley from a beatdown from Triple H, and he didn’t come alone. Rollins debuted a brand new T-Shirt avaiable at WWe Shop and this shirt is a direct message to Triple H, the man Seth has his sights on and an axe to grind with at Wrestlemania. The “King Slayer” theme of this new shirt is an obvious and deliberate warning to Triple H, who considers himself “The King of Kings”.

Rollins has quite a history with Triple H. It starts with Seth being a project of Triple H in NXT and leads to them feuding while part of rival factions in The Shield and The Authority. Rollins would betray his brothers in the Shield to endear himself to Triple H and join The Authority. Triple H would down the line turn on Rollins by interfering in a match and costing Seth the Universal Championship. Now Seth wants retribution and he can be supported by buying this 100% cotton, classic fit T-Shirt.
