Rusev's Stolen Goods Update, New Day vs. Elite, WWE 2K19 Cover
Thursday, June 14, 2018
As reported earlier in the week, Smackdown Superstars Rusev and Lana claimed to have had some of their personal items stolen during their recent stay at a Sheraton Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee. Smackdown General Manager Paige now also claims that some of her items were taken while she was staying there. Pro Wrestling Sheet's Ryan Satin was able to verify that "The Bulgarian Brute" will be pressing charges against the hotel after they blamed him for his items being stolen. The hotel did not respond when asked for comment. Rusev has now filed a police report with the Memphis Police Department for $500 after losing the money in his wallet and his wife's camera.
Fans may still be a few years off from ever seeing The New Day and The Elite compete in a wrestling ring, but they will be competing against each other later on today. After a long video game rivalry between WWE's Xavier Woods and New Japan Pro Wrestling's Kenny Omega, they will finally determine who the better man is during a game of Street Fighter V at the E3 video game expo today. What makes this battle even more interesting is that Woods has enlisted the help of Kofi Kingston and Big E while Omega will be joined by The Young Bucks. The two immensely popular wrestling stables will be playing against each other at the Capcom booth. It will be streaming live on UpUpDownDown at 4pm ET.
It is about that time of year once again when WWE reveals which superstar will be featured on the cover of their yearly 2K video game series. Current Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins received the honor for last year's edition of the game, but who will be selected for this year's game cover? 2K has just promised to reveal who this superstar will be very soon. The video game company has released a statement announcing that the cover star will be confirmed during an upcoming virtual press conference. Other important bits of information concerning WWE 2K19 will be shared as well. The press conference will be streaming on WWE 2K Channels on Twitch, YouTube and Facebook on June 18th at 11am ET.
