Plans for Reigns & Mahal, Vader Update, Nikki & Cena Reuniting
Wednesday, May 9, 2018
Roman Reigns will not be competing in the men's Money in the Bank ladder match at the pay-per-view of the same name next month. Finn Balor was able to defeat Reigns and Sami Zayn in a Triple Threat match, but Reigns almost won the match himself before Jinder Mahal suddenly interfered and cost Reigns the win. WWE is indeed planning on having Reigns feud with Jinder, and current listings for upcoming shows have Reigns and Mahal feuding all throughout June and July. It looks like Jinder and Roman will have several matches between now and the SummerSlam pay-per-view in August, which is where Reigns will likely challenge for the Universal Championship once again.
Professional wrestling legend Vader has not had a very fun couple of years as of late. "The Mastodon" has been dealing with some very serious heart problems that his doctors have told him may end up eventually leading to his death at some point very soon. Vader has already gone in for a couple of different surgery operations lately, and he has just confirmed that he recently underwent another successful heart surgery procedure. He noted that he had been dealing with an irregular heartbeat, but his heart has now been put in normal sinus rhythm. This is definitely some positive news for the former WCW and WWE star. Vader's fans have been campaigning for WWE to induct him into the Hall of Fame.
Nikki Bella and John Cena will not be getting married after all, and the relationship between the two WWE megastars has definitely come to an end. Both of these professional wrestlers have since moved on from their relationship, but it won't be long before they share the screen once again. In addition to some prerecorded footage taped for the upcoming season of Total Bellas, it has just been reported by PWInsider that Cena and Bella will be reuniting just once more when they will be joined by Stephanie McMahon and Brie Bella during an appearance for NBC's upfronts. These WWE Superstars will be representing the company during the event on May 14th.
