#4. SmackDown star details his crush on Shawn Michaels

Friday Night SmackDown star Natalya recently shared details of her childhood crush on WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels. During a recent interview with Dr. Beau Hightower, Natalya revealed that HBK was her very first crush.

“Shawn Michaels was like my very first crush. When I was little, I loved The Rockers. When they were the Rockers, I had a huge crush on Shawn Michaels. My little sister loved Marty Jannetty. We always watched them wrestle against my father and uncle,” Natalya said.

14-time world champion Randy Orton is currently on hiatus from WWE recovering from his injury. A fan account has now shared new images of the Viper with a clean shaven look.

“Pictures from yesterday of @RandyOrton at a pool in St. Charles, Missouri with a few lucky fans.

Randy Orton has been on a team called RK-Bro with Riddle since last year. The two even won the RAW Tag Team Championships together. Prior to his injury reports, it was rumored that Orton would face undisputed champion Roman Reigns at SummerSlam this year.


#2. Former WWE Superstar talks locker room culture and sends message to The Undertaker

Former WWE star and United States Champion Rusev (Miro) took a subtle dig at The Undertaker.

A few years ago, The Phenom made a controversial comment about the current locker room, stating that it had gone soft. Speaking on his Twitch channel, Miro had the following to say about the difference between dressing rooms past and present:

“Some people want to drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes and do heroin and some people want to play video games. Some of these old people say that’s a bad thing. I don’t think it’s a bad thing just because we have more brains now than people used to do doesn’t mean video games are bad. Sorry Undertaker, we don’t have guns or drugs and we don’t fight behind the scenes.” Miro said.

Miro and The Undertaker have faced off in a WWE ring before. The Phenom was originally scheduled to face Chris Jericho at The Greatest Royal Rumble in 2018. However, plans changed at the very last minute and Rusev replaced Jericho to face The Deadman on the show.


#1. Bayley teases WWE return to Money in the Bank

Bayley, a multiple women’s champion, has been long overdue for her return. Now she has teased a comeback at the upcoming Money in the Bank premium live event, sharing a photo of herself on Instagram with an MITB briefcase.

Bayley is a former Money in the Bank winner, winning the ladder match and contract in 2019. She then cashed in on Charlotte Flair later that night and defeated her to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion.

The role model has been out of action for almost a year now due to an ACL injury. However, there are rumors that she will be making a comeback soon.


We asked the AEW Women’s World Champion to walk through the Forbidden Door map with us here.

Q. Do you want to see Bayley return to the 2022 Money in the Bank game?
