Whatcha gonna do?
As reported earler by BTW.com, The Immortal One Hulk Hogan will make his presence felt this BTW Nitro. The Hulkster has not been seen since Apocalypse, the night in which he made his BTW debut and got confronted and challenged to a match by the Rated R Superstar, Edge. The world was shocked on that evening when these two men stood nose to nose in the middle of the ring, and was surprised that their exchange didnt get personal. That was however, on that night. On Nitro, it's expected that once again they will confront one another in the center of the squared circle, just three weeks before their epic showdown at Rebellion. What will the outspoken Canadian have to say to his childhood idol? And what will Hulk Hogan bring with him on this night? Besides, and as seen last week, how will Jeff Hardy factor in all of this? Before getting tangled up in this dream match with The Hulkster, Edge was making Jeff's life impossible, even getting suspended out of a scheme he tried to pull on the Rainbow Haired Warrior. Edge and Hogan are the ones expected to get face to face, but will Jeff Hardy have something to add to the discussion? And will Eric Bischoff risk his main event show off get thwarted?
Per the hand of Eric Bischoff as well, it has been announced that BTW Nitro will open with all three participants of the BTW World Heavyweight Championship Triple Threat in the ring for a special announcement by the General Manager. Last week, we saw the return of Triple H to BTW Nitro to confront the man who beat him at WrestleBowl for the championship, Brock Lesnar and his former tag partner who has spent the best part of the last three months trying to prove to the world how better than The Game he is, and put put his name back in the championship contention hat. We also witnessed Christian Cage host the most controversial of Peepshows, in which many truths saw the light. All three men pose a highly combustible situation going into Rebellion, and it ponders an interesting scenario to see if after all what was said last week on the Peepshow, they even manage to share the same ring without breaking down into physicality.
It's been confirmed that Undertaker, still coming off from that unthinkable victory over Umaga in the KO match, will face AJ Styles once again in a rematch from last week's classic. The Phenomal One was succesful in stealing the show, and very close in stealing the victory, and this week he'll get the chance to once again prove he's the real deal. However, with all the bad blood between Styles and Bischoff and the controversy of the athletic superstar going to Bischoff's face and behind his back as well, one has to wonder if battling the Demon of Death Valley may be instead a punishment in disguise.
The world witnessed last week how Paul Heyman, following Big Show's defeat at the hands of Bill Goldberg, promised they would see a new, more dominant and violent version of The Wall,and its members would so just that, with Mark Henry destroying young Gavin Spears. Their main target however, Bill Goldberg, was not in attendance. This week however he will, and it's a given he will be after the powerful group once more. What's a fact though, is that Gavin Spears will have to deal with yet another member of The Wall, having to go one on one with the Personification of Domination, Ezekiel Jackson. The medical state of Gavin Spears is unknown at this point, and it's unknown if he'll even be able to step into the ring with Jackson come Nitro. Anyway, we may be upon witnessing the destruction of a young man's career, unless one Bill Goldberg says otherwise.
A marquee match at Apocalypse, CM Punk vs Samoa Joe, saw Samoa Joe win with controversy after ina roll up he pulled Punk's tights, ruining a rematch that had the premise of determining once and for all who was the better man between the two. Everybody was expecting some sort of comment last week from one of the most outspoken man in the industry, however the Second City Savior stuck to business and said absolutely nothing after his match with Cody Rhodes. This week however, we've been informed that CM Punk will indeed address the crowd and what happened two weeks ago at Apocalypse. What will come out from the mouth of the walking time bomb?
Referencing another rematch from Apocalypse, we will witness one at BTW Nitro,when Randy Orton goes one on one with Joe Anoa'i. The Legend Killer has made the Anoa'i family his target, destroying The Rock and Rikishi and scoring a victory over Joe himself two weeks ago. He even added more gunpowder to the mix by confronting current tag team champions and members of said family, The Fatu Brothers and bragging about his success over their family. Revenge is still achievable for Joe Anoa'i,as the rookie has the match of his life and has the chance to defeat Randy Orton and avenge his actions in this day of reckoning.
Also confirmed is a tag match pitting the team of Cody Rhodes and BTW Continental Champion Chris Jericho against Muhammad Hassan and Mr. Kennedy, in an encounter with many interests entangled. Last week and after beating Rhodes in their rematchat Apocalypse, Muhammad promise that his next step is taking out the young superstar for good, while during the course of this week a championship match between Jericho and Kennedy was confirmed for Rebellion following the constant cheap shots by Kennedy on the champion and the desire of Y2J of making them stop, but it shouldn't also be forgotten that just last year Muhammad Hassan and Chris Jericho were on each other throats in a blood rivalry.
All this and more on BTW Nitro.
