Ronda Rousey Update, Cornette Praises UK Stars, Kaitlyn Returning
Saturday, December 23, 2017
It has been rumored for a while now that Ronda Rousey could be coming to WWE very soon to work a match at WrestleMania 34. Some fans have already begun speculating that Rousey could be debuting in the women's Royal Rumble match as a surprise. However, that does not appear to be a likely scenario. Pro Wrestling Sheet discovered that Ronda Rousey is currently filming a movie with Mark Wahlberg called Mile 22, and the movie will not wrap up filming until sometime after the Royal Rumble pay-per-view takes place. Additionally, the report mentions that no deal between Rousey and WWE has been signed as of yet, but that could still chance by the time WrestleMania rolls around.
Jim Cornette has been very outspoken when it comes to the current landscape of the professional wrestling. More often than not, he usually is not impressed. Cornette has been extremely critical of current wrestling sensations like the Young Bucks and Kenny Omega for their modifications towards traditional pro wrestling. Earlier this week, Cornette revealed that he is definitely a fan of current WWE UK stars Tyler Bate and Pete Dunne. Cornette praised Bate and "the Bruiserweight's" match from NXT this past Wednesday on social media. He even noted that with both competitors being so advanced at such a young age that "they will be stars for years to come.”
Celeste Bonin made a name for herself during the couple of years that she spent working for WWE as Kaitlyn. Most notably, she won the third season of the NXT game show, and she later became the Diva's Champion before she left the promotion. Kaitlyn has not competed in the ring since 2014, but that is now about to change. According to Squared Circle Sirens, Kaitlyn has been training for a wrestling comeback at the Main Event Training Center in Ft. Lauderdale. She is also said to be appearing at the Coastal Championship Wrestling event on February 10th in Coral Springs, Florida. With the possibility of surprises being added to the women's Royal Rumble match, one can't help but wonder if there may be more to Kaitlyn's sudden return to the ring.
