More Big WM23 Rumors/Spoilers, Major Backstage ECW News
By Ryan Clark | January 27, 2007
As of this weekend they have four matches planned for Wrestlemania. They are John Cena vs. Edge vs. Randy Orton in a triple thread for the title, The Undertaker vs. Batista, Hulk Hogan vs. Shane McMahon with Khali in his corner, and a possible Shawn Michaels vs. King Booker match with Donald Trump managing Michaels and Vince managing Booker. That final match is still not a done deal, but the rest are seemingly in place. Things change hourly with Vince McMahon so these WrestleMania matches are always hard to call each year. Stay tuned to the site for more information leading into the PPV though.
WWE writer Dave Lagana pushed hard for Monty Brown to keep his name, but Vince wouldn't listen to his arguments and decided Marquis Cor Von was the way to go. Brian Gerwitz wanted Brown on RAW, but Lagana did manage to convince Vince to put him on ECW saying he could be a big challenger for Lashley and the top heel on ECW. Arn Anderson and Fit Finlay have been pushing for Bob Holly to be ECW's top heel and have convinced Vince that was the direction to go, but Holly may have suffered nerve damage in his elbow from previous surgery and will need another operation and there's a chance his career may questionable so Monty Brown is there to plug in that spot if needed.
It has been confirmed that it is diva Shantelle Taylor in the Sensei suit.
