It all kicked off last night at WWE SmackDown Live in Pittsburgh, and as predicted in the Inquisitr yesterday, AJ Styles was at the center of the action. As we all know, there are less than three weeks until the WWE’s biggest showcase event. WrestleMania 33 returns to Orlando, Florida’s Camping World Stadium on Sunday, April 2, and the WWE network is in full-on hype mode. Recent episodes of SmackDown and Monday Night Raw have been used to build the backstory to WrestleMania 33, and last night’s SmackDown was no different.

It seems that Braun Strowman is at the height of his popularity right now. The past year has seen Strowman’s stock rise on Monday Night Raw. In fact, Strowman’s antics were the height of entertainment, during some pretty dull offerings, on the Raw side of the WWE split. Strowman’s height, strength, and size give him a clear advantage over many competitors. Strowman’s height is billed as 6ft. 8in., and he weighs in at over 380lbs. Let’s face it, they don’t come much bigger than Braun Strowman.

Over recent months WWE superstar Sami Zayn’s feud with Braun Strowman has been one of the highlights on the Monday Night Raw half of the WWE brand split. For weeks, we saw Zayn play the fall guy for Strowman’s hilarious antics. As previously reported in the Inquisitr, we saw Strowman chase Zayn around the auditorium, before finally catching up with him in the ring. When Zayn and Strowman finally faced each other the end result was Zayn being carried away on stretcher, and even then, Sami was attacked as he was carried away.

WrestleMania 33 could well prove to be The Undertaker’s swan song. In the wake of WWE Fastlane 2017, we are seeing the WrestleMania rumor mill go into overdrive. As previously reported in the Inquisitr, the official WWE WrestleMania 33 poster promotes a host of occasional performers, whilst those superstars who perform week in and week out are relegated to the margins. This seems to indicate that the WWE network continues to need the likes of The Undertaker and Goldberg to sell tickets and PPV passes. The fact that Roman Reigns was the only current star to feature prominently on the WrestleMania 33 poster tells its own story.

Fans of the WWE network will know that the annual Royal Rumble takes place at San Antonio’s Alamodome this coming Sunday, January 29. The 60,000-seat arena plays host to what is the most open Royal Rumble for many years. The official WWE website has listed a total of 18 entrants for the 2017 Royal Rumble, and the lineup includes some huge names. The Undertaker, Bill Goldberg, and Brock Lesnar are just a few of the huge names already declared for this year’s Royal Rumble, but the supporting cast is the strongest for many years.
WWE wrestling fans don’t need to be told that The Undertaker has been one of the biggest attractions in wrestling for over 25 years. As recently reported in the Inquisitr, The Undertaker has been installed as the bookmakers favorite to win the 2017 Royal Rumble, which takes place this coming Sunday, January 29. The Undertaker was installed as the Royal Rumble favorite after appearing on Monday Night Raw two weeks ago to announce that he would participate. In recent years, the Deadman has only tended to appear at WrestleMania, the WWE’s annual showcase event.
