The Survivor Series have gone into archive and we are already starting to think about 2023. 2022 was a year of great changes and jolts within WWE, which had to manage the sensational farewell of Vince McMahon. The now former Chairman of the company announced his retirement last July, overwhelmed by heavy allegations of misconduct together with his right-hand man John Laurinaitis.
Vince's place was taken by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan, while Triple H became the new head of the creative team. The 14-time world champion made a number of changes to the shows and convinced several stars who had been released to return to WWE.
The likes of Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman and Johnny Gargano have returned to Stamford, sending fans into raptures. It is rumored that the federation has huge surprises in mind for next year. A source previously reported Roman Reigns' plans for WWE WrestleMania 39 and now it seems like the reports have been shot down.
New details on WrestleMania 39
As all wrestling fans know, WrestleMania 39 is the highlight of the WWE calendar. The next edition of the 'Showcase of the Immortals' will be held on April 1 and 2, 2023 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
According to what was reported by 'WrestleVotes', WWE would be thinking of organizing shows with The Undertaker during the WrestleMania 39 weekend. Triple H would also like to involve legends of the caliber of Stone Cold Steve Austin and Trish Stratus, to whom fans can ask questions.
Austin retired from wrestling way back in 2003 (after WrestleMania 19), but returned to the ring this year to face Kevin Owens on the first night of WrestleMania 38. Trish Stratus, for his part, has made sporadic television appearances in recent years.
Her last match in WWE dates back to SummerSlam 2019, where she was defeated by Charlotte Flair. WrestleMania 39 could also host the big returns of John Cena and The Rock. The 16-times world champion would look set to face Austin Theory, while Johnson would take on his cousin Roman Reigns in the main event.
Over the past decade, WrestleMania has generated more than $1.25 billion in cumulative economic impact for host cities. According to a new report from Ringside News, there are no plans for The Head of The Table to defend both his titles at WrestleMania 39.
"A tenured member of the WWE creative team, who is privy to such discussions, was quick to shoot down this “report,”" stated Ringside News.
