Original Hardy/Umaga Cage Plans, WWE Contacts Britney Spears

Ryan Clark


WWE originally booked Jeff Hardy to lose to Umaga in the 1/7 Raw steel cage match.

Believe it or not, WWE approached Britney Spears last year about doing a Rumble to Wrestlemania angle, but she was a mess, thus they ended up doing the McMahon vs. Trump storyline.

Adam Lebow sent this one: Watching the Dish Network feed of USA Network SD, and a few noticeable things so far in the first 40 minutes or so of the show. From the time the WWE Opening started until the end of the Cena opening promo, there were several audio drop outs. Then, in the women’s match, while it was better, there were still a few spots, notably when Ashley entered the ring, when something that used to be visible on the screen was not. Same issue during the Steve Austin Legacy promo, the words on the bottom of the screen were cut off and it was not clear exactly what was being said. Everything looked and sounded fine so far in the previous Elimination Chamber segment. Not sure how it looks on other providers…
