Friday, April 13, 2018
One of the most exciting events produced by WWE last year was undoubtedly the first United Kingdom Championship tournament. The event introduced WWE fans to some of the best competitors that the UK has to offer, including Pete Dunne, Wolfgang, Trent Seven, and Mark Andrews. The tournament lasted two days and was won by Tyler Bate. WWE officially announced last week that the tournament will be return returning later this year, but the company has just revealed that tickets are on sale now. The second edition of the UK tournament will be taking place in the Royal Albert Hall on June 18th and 19th of this year, and the tournament will be airing live on the WWE Network as well.
Scott Steiner has competed in promotions such as WCW, WWE, and TNA Wrestling over the course of his career, and the outspoken professional wrestler continues to fight today. In recent years, Steiner has continued to compete on and off again for Impact Wrestling, and it looks like "Big Poppa Pump" will be returning to the promotion once again very soon. Steiner made his return during the latest edition of Impact Wrestling when he aligned himself with Eli Drake against LAX. It has been confirmed by Impact now that Steiner and Drake will be teaming up to face LAX in a tag team match at the upcoming Redemption pay-per-view scheduled to take place on April 22nd.
Braun Strowman surprised virtually WWE fan when he decided not to select another professional wrestler to be his tag team partner at WrestleMania, but rather a small child from the audience instead. The 10-year-old boy, named Nicholas, and Strowman defeated The Bar to win the Raw Tag Team Championships during the event, making Nicholas the youngest champion in WWE history. It was a bittersweet victory though since Nicholas and Strowman were forced to relinquish the titles on Raw the next night. Nicholas may be finished with professional wrestling for right now, but WWE has decided to honor his short in-ring career by releasing his official entrance video and theme. Check it out here.
