    As soon as the show was about to begin, commentator Michael Cole announced a delay due to weather conditions.

    RIP IT UP

    Rhea Ripley has confirmed that she wasn’t meant to be on WrestleMania.

    She told talkSPORT: “To be honest, it was a real quick change.

    “It was something that I wasn’t really expecting, I didn’t expect to be on WrestleMania this year. It’s just something I didn’t really see happening.

    “I was actually sitting in catering for a good month or two months. I can’t even remember, it felt like forever!

    “But I was just sitting there eating away, watching the shows, biding my time trying to pick my best opportunity. And when Asuka faced Peyton [Royce] it was just the right day. They came to me like ‘yep, this is your time’ and I’m like ‘sweet!’

    “I’m up for anything, I can do it, this is my one shot. I might as well go for it, that’s how this business goes.

    “You have to take your shots, really shoot for the stars with them and do your best. People see that and then you end up with WrestleMania matches.”

    TRIPLE WHAMMY

    Triple H has revealed the UK has not had a major WWE show for 28 YEARS – because it does not make money.

    Wembley last hosted SummerSlam in front of 80,000 fans back in 1992, with the show going down in folklore among British WWE fans.

    Hunter told the Express: "As far as the ability to have larger Pay-Per-Views and larger events, yeah. I think you see that happening now.

    "I went to Australia, 70,000 people in the stadium.

    "I think those things become clearer and clearer as we’re experimenting with other things.

    "The time zones are the big kicker. We have to go where the most people can watch.

    "I always hear about Wembley, I always hear it was such a massive success. It was not.

    "I will just say that from a business standpoint, it was not.

    "That’s why we didn’t come back and that’s why we’re still trying to figure it out.

    "So when the time is right, absolutely."
