Sydal/Mayweather, Cena/Y2J Update, Punk Cries Backstage

Ryan Clark


WWE developmental wrestler Matt Sydal actually isn’t training Floyd Mayweather for his match at WrestleMania, but he was at the Raw in Milwaukee two weeks ago, and involved in practicing Big Show’s throw over the top rope to teach Mayweather how to take the bump safely.

Former enemies John Cena & Chris Jericho will be teaming up to take on JBL & Randy Orton in an advertised dark match for the Raw after WrestleMania.

CM Punk & Elijah Burke were very happy work a tag match with Ric Flair on ECW a few weeks ago. Backstage, Burke asked Flair to sign his wrestling trunks and Punk was moved to tears saying it was due to working as Flair’s tag team partner in one his final matches before he retires.

Georgia area indy wrestlers Truitt Fields, Andrew Pendleton, Shatter, Mikal Judas and Jeff Lewis are booked as extras for this week’s Raw & SmackDown tapings in the Carolinas.

WWE announced in an advertisement in the Toronto Sun newspaper that next year’s Royal Rumble will be taking place on January 29, (which is a Thursday, so it’s probably a typo) and No Way Out will be on February 15.
