Booker T Predicts Wrestlemania 40 Main Event, NXT Roster, Christina Vargas’ Departure

- Booker T is featured here on NOLADefender.com. In the piece used to promote the WWE live event in New Orleans, Book predicted the main event of Wrestlemania 40 would be Dean Ambrose vs. Dolph Ziggler.

- WWE has added the profile of Tom Phillips to the NXT roster here on dot com. Phillips is a commentator that debuted last September.

- We noted last week here on WrestlingNewsWorld.com that Christina Vargas requested her release from WWE developmental. Vargas wasn’t happy and apparently felt ostracized and unwanted.

    Ambrose/Ziggler headlining WM40 won’t happen. It’s damn near impossible to predict a Mai event from a PPV that’s 10 and a half years away. Example, in 2001 did anyone predict that Cena and Miz would headline WM27? The answer is hell no, Cena and Miz weren’t even with the company then, in 1991 did anyone predict that Austin/Rocknwould headline the show in 2001? Again the answer is no. This is going to sign harsh to Ambrose & Ziggler fans but there’s a better chance that WM40 is headlined by two guys who aren’t even in the company at the moment.

      Not trolling, but you said it’s nearly impossible to predict a main event 10 years in advance after saying that Ziggler vs Ambrose WON’T happen. Sounds like a prediction to me. :P

        Lol, true, But you know what I mean. Just going off of history it’s more likely that the guys who will headline Mania aren’t in the company yet. Ziggler is also 33 which would make him around 43 at WM40. I think only HBK & Taker are the only two guys to main event Wrestlemania at the age of 40 or above, I could be wrong on that but those are the only two guys that I could think of off the top of my head.

          When Booker was asked the question, he was probably more concerned with putting guys over with his answer than giving a real prediction. As you said, it’s nearly impossible to predict. But in my opinion, given his range of options on the current roster, his answer couldn’t have been much better.

          Hulk was nearly 50 when he faced the rock at mania 18.( whicj i know was not the last match on the show but it was ” the real main event ” ) and Batista I’m sure was getting on in age when he headlined against hhh at wm 21

            I didn’t overlook match. I simply meant matches that ended the show, but I agree though, Hogan/Rock was the TRUE headliner of Mania 18.
