Kevin Owens has been doing promos in which he has basically been claiming that he is going to have a beatdown ready for Steve Austin at WrestleMania in Austin’s home state of Texas. Surely, most fans are expecting Austin to deliver a Stone Cold Stunner to Owens right in the middle in the ring. However, on more than one occasion, a WWE superstar did not have the best of luck in their own home state.
Based on this tweet, it appears that Rhea Ripley and Liv Morgan are interested in forming a female version of the D-Generation X faction. Considering the success of the NWO faction compared to D-Generation X’, I think a female version of the NWO would be better. Ripley and Morgan participated in a photoshoot that paid tribute to the NWO for the faction’s 25th anniversary. They seemed to be having a good time, so an all-female NWO faction might be something they would be interested in.
And this reminds me of a question that I have always wondered- since the NWO wanted all of the gold, why was there not a female member in the faction to go after the WCW Women’s Championship? I always thought that would have boosted the Championship’s image.
There are reports that WWE may be moving Bron Breakker to the main roster soon. I think that he would fit well there, and one of the things that they could do with Breakker is move him to the RAW brand and put him in a program with Omos. Breakker is a power-style wrestler, and working with the largest wrestler on the roster would give him an opportunity to display power moves in the most impressive way possible.
