Happy Rusev Day everyone! After the BBQ Fest cooks’ meeting, I will be watching WrestleMania on the WWE Network. I’m not going to predict every match, but I will predict one. After Asuka defeats Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown women’s championship, Carmella cashes in her Money in the Bank briefcase and hands Asuka her first WWE loss with the help of Big Cass. Also, I don’t have a prediction for the winner but Miz vs. Balor vs. Rollins will be the match of the night.
That’s it for now. Almost time for the cooks’ meeting. Back tomorrow with more news.
