Rumored Takeover Match, Lana to Join Rusev Day? Titus in MCU?
NXT’s next big Takeover event will be taking place the night before WWE’s huge Money in the Bank pay-per-view in Chicago, Illinois. Several different matches were revealed during the latest round of NXT TV tapings in Full Sail University, however, some fans noticed that no matches were made for the United Kingdom Championship or the North American Championship. During the latest Wrestling Observer Radio show, it was revealed that WWE may actually be planning to have both champions face each other during the show. It was noted on the show that Adam Cole and Pete Dunne may end up facing each other at NXT Takeover: Chicago, but those plans still have yet to be finalized.
Rusev and Aiden English are two of the most beloved characters on the Smackdown roster. The pair have been experiencing some success in recent weeks, and Rusev’s wife Lana has been celebrating with them backstage lately. During the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, it was noted that WWE is discussing adding Lana to Rusev and English’s team for good. It looked as though Lana was encouraging Rusev to turn on English, but it now appears that WWE may have changed their plans and are now looking to have the three of them work together as a trio. Expect to see Rusev Day get even stronger with Rusev, English, and Lana now leading the group.
Titus O’Neil has been a WWE Superstar for a number of years, and although the Titus Worldwide leader recently became infamous for accidentally tripping and sliding under the ring during the Greatest Royal Rumble show, he is still beloved by plenty of members of the WWE roster. O’Neil took to Twitter earlier today to make a potentially huge announcement regarding his acting career. He teased on social media that he may be joining his good friend Batista in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With all of the charity work and praise that Titus has received over the years, it’s nice to see him receiving some recognition. There is no word on what O’Neil’s Marvel role is just yet.
