WWE announced earlier this week that another Superstar Shakeup will take place during Raw and Smackdown next week, which means that several stars currently on the Raw and Smackdown rosters may be moving to different shows. Of course, the topic of possible NXT call ups has been speculated on by fans, but an interesting name from WWE’s developmental brand could be arriving soon. F4Wonline claims that WWE is considering bringing The Velveteen Dream to the main roster next week. The Velveteen Dream is a beloved character in NXT, but the original report claims that WWE is still unsure of whether or not he should be brought up. Fans will find out during either Raw or Smackdown next week.
WWE brought in quite a number of female talents to take part in the Mae Young Classic tournament last year, including Nixon Newell. After competing on the independent wrestling circuit for some time, WWE signed Newell and planned on using her in the Mae Young Classic last year. Unfortunately, she was unable to appear in the tournament due to a knee injury. Newell finally returned to the ring during an NXT live event in Venice, Florida last night when she and Dakota Kai lost to Vanessa Borne and Reina Gonzalez. Newell had been out of action for over ten months before finally making her in-ring return over the weekend. With another Mae Young Classic tournament set to take place this year, perhaps Newell will finally get a chance to shine.
Absolutely overwhelmed, thank you everyone ?? https://t.co/hj9HBYrHSH

Plenty of cities make bids to host WrestleMania each year, but WWE has been bringing the event back to stadiums which previously hosted WrestleMania in recent years. WrestleMania 34 took place in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans for the second time, and next year’s event will be held in New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium for the second time as well. However, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported that the city of Orlando, Florida has already hoping to bring WrestleMania back in either 2023 or 2025. Orlando first hosted the event in the Citrus Bowl for WrestleMania 24 in 2008 before securing the event for a second time for WrestleMania 33 in 2017.
