More On Lesnar/Batista/WWE + DGUSA News & Changes


Partial Source:

— As noted earlier here on the website, Brock Lesnar is in negotiations with WWE to make a surprise appearance this Sunday at WrestleMania 28. Talks are currently ongoing with a company source stating that the odds are 50/50 that Lesnar will appear. WWE is hoping that a deal can be finalized in the next 24 hours.

UFC president Dana White has confirmed that Lesnar is legally able to appear, as he is no longer under UFC contract. White said he didn’t know if Lesnar would appear, though. Lesnar left WWE in March 2004 after WrestleMania XX for an NFL career before a stint with New Japan. He signed with the UFC after.

An AP writer noted in an article on the Rock that if WWE wanted another potential blockbuster match for the Rock, the best man would be Lesnar. When asked for comment, a grinning Rock said, “I’m not saying a thing. I didn’t say anything.”

Dave Batista is in Miami, FL as well. He’s been in talks with WWE but it’s not confirmed that he’ll appear at the big event.

— Christina Von Eerie, who worked briefly as Toxxin in TNA, will debut for DG:USA tonight as an in-ring talent. Von Eerie accompanied Jon Moxley to the ring a few years back in a match against Tommy Dreamer for the promotion.

— The reason for the previously reported changes to tonight’s DG:USA iPPV are injuries to both CIMA and Uhaa Nation. CIMA has suffered a neck injury, while Uhaa Nation blew out his knee last night. Uhaa will be out for an unknown amount of time. CIMA did an interview explaining the injury, which you can see below:

– The promotion has released the below video featuring Masato Yoshino and Johnny Gargano:
