5 Most Insane Things Happening In Wrestling Right Now (April 12)

WHO you gonna brawl?


WrestleMania 34 was, in a word, insane.

Asuka's streak came to a shocking end. The rumours of Rey Mysterio and Chris Jericho - even freelancer Minoru Suzuki, who was spotted in the audience - did not materialise. Braun Strowman did not get these good hands; he selected a child from the audience as his partner for either a lame one-off sight gag or because Vince McMahon confused young Nicholas for a 205 Live guy. AJ Styles Vs. Shinsuke Nakamura didn't deliver a dream match, but a slow-burning slog that at least erupted in the form of a direly-needed Shinsuke Nakamura heel turn. On the subject of "Shin", the man cut an absolutely hilarious promo on the subsequent SmackDown, harkening back to the mischievous swine of old. The Usos' major 'Mania moment felt like a cosmic joke, since more people would have remembered it had it taken place on the Kickoff in front of a fresh crowd who hadn't just bore witness to the most welcome surprise in company history.

Jinder Mahal won another title despite WWE having to cancel one leg of his "home"coming tour, the reason for his batsh*t WWE Championship reign to begin with, as a result of poor ticket sales. John Cena Vs. The Undertaker, one of the most dreamed-about WrestleMania matches ever, manifested as a three minute squash in which 'Taker annihilated the p*ssed-up Big Match John.
