Backstage WWE Rumors: Latest news from Finn Balor, Roman Reigns and more

0 out of 3


    The WrestleMania 35 road is underway and, as a result, there has been a lot of information reported about the big superstars and what they could do on April 7th in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

    Finn Balor is one of those superstars, whose recent defeat at the Intercontinental Championship seems to have left his place in The Showcase of the Immortals in limbo. But according to reports, this is not the case.

    The same can be said of Drew McIntyre, who had a considerable impact on Monday's Raw episode and who is now online for a substantial fight at WrestleMania.

    Find out what these two might have to expect from The Grandaddy of Them All and who could take over to face Kurt Angle in his farewell matchup with this WWE rumor roundup.

    WrestleVotes reported On Tuesday, Finland's Balor lost the Intercontinental Championship to Bobby Lashley on Raw Monday because WWE has planned something bigger for him at WrestleMania.

    Balor won his first IC title at Elimination Chamber, but lost it relatively quickly Monday night, leaving some to wonder if he even figured in the WWE plans for WrestleMania. This report suggests that he is and that he could end up in the middle of something important.

    The only question is what.

    There are very few options available for WWE Creative. Baron Corbin is one of them, but that hardly sounds like anything bigger than entering the series with the coveted intercontinental title. Maybe he'd join a SmackDown superstar in a cross-promotion game for brand supremacy.

    It is increasingly difficult to determine Balor's place on the map as the composition becomes clearer at each parade. Let's hope that, in Balor's interest, the report is accurate and that he finds himself facing a raging fan base of MetLife Stadium in a prestigious and significant match.

    Randall Ortman from Cageside Seats reported Drew McIntyre attacked Roman Reigns, then defeated and brutalized Dean Ambrose on Raw Monday to warm him up for his match against The Big Dog at WrestleMania.

    McIntyre is one of those superstars that WWE has clearly wanted to push from his list of main players last year, but for some reason he can never create enough momentum. A WrestleMania program with the best star in the industry is exactly what it needs to convince fans that it is a key player in the show's flagship event.

    Even though he does not win the victory, which is highly unlikely, he can use the spotlight to propel himself in the months following Mania and hope to win more prestigious programs and championship opportunities.

    On Monday, Raw presented Kurt Angle's announcement that his farewell match will take place at WrestleMania, with no real indication of his opponent.

    Ortman reported there is speculation that it will be John Cena.

    Cena's first televised match as a member of the main formation was against Angle, and both had monumental championship clashes over the years. It would be appropriate for him to be the Superstar who will face the Olympic gold medalist in his last match.

    Angle deserves a high level competition for all his contributions to the industry.

    Fighting the biggest star of the last 20 years at WrestleMania is the most prestigious game for him.
