The stars of WWE will be returning to Japan this summer, and the company has confirmed that Ronda Rousey will be appearing at the live event in Osaka, Japan at the Edison Arena on August 31st.
Other Superstars being advertised for the event include Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Finn Balor, Seth Rollins, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Bray Wyatt, Bobby Roode, Jinder Mahal, Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax, Natalya and more.
Survivor will be returning for a new season in the fall, and the theme of the new season will be David vs. Goliath. Former WWE Superstar John Hennigan, aka John Morrison has been confirmed for the new season, and host Jeff Probst recently spoke to EW about what fans can expect from him on the show.
“Like most of our casting theme ideas, it comes when Mark, me, the producers, and CBS begin the casting process. Usually we don’t really have an idea at first and we just start to see what’s there and we typically [figure out the theme] the month before. But we just never got to it this season. And then I remember a day when this guy Christian came in, and he told us his story which was that he was always a bit of a nerd when he was a kid, and he had to overcome social awkwardness his entire life. He was picked on, and you can see it in how he carries himself, his body language — it’s almost like he has to get permission before he speaks.
So he was, in many ways, this personification of a David. He had been overcoming obstacles his entire life. And what nobody would ever suspect is that he was now a robotics engineer, and in the right situation that intelligence and that education could be his secret weapon. And then we had a guy that was the polar opposite. This guy that’s known as Johnny Mundo [a.k.a. John Morrison], the mayor of Slamtown. He’s a professional wrestler, he’s gigantic, he’s charming, and he’s smart. He started with advantage, he had a great family, and he’s used all of these skills to slay everybody his entire life.”
John appears in the new trailer around the 1:15 mark.
