WrestleMania typically features some great matches, but the entrances from the performers has become another crucial component of the show. Whether it’s Shawn Michaels zip lining down from the ceiling at WrestleMania XII or John Cena storming down the ramp at WrestleMania 25 with an army of clones, there have been several incredible entrances at WrestleMania events. WWE has just decided to highlight some of the very best ones in a new playlist that has been uploaded to theirnYouTube channel. It’s clear from the video that WWE puts a ton of effort into the entrances of some competitors every year. With WrestleMania 35 now just around the corner, it will be interesting to see what new memorable entrances take place.

It was announced not too long ago that Torrie Wilson will be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame this year. Her spot in the Hall of Fame has become a heavily debated topic among fans, but during an interview on The Ross Report podcast, Wilson talked about what a big deal the honor is to her. Also during that interview, she talked a bit about her WWE run and learning more with each passing week. Wilson even went as far as to say that the fans watched her learn before their very eyes. Although she and the other women of WWE practiced very hard, Wilson pointed out that WWE did not have a training system like NXT when she was competing. Wilson also said that she plans on keeping her Hall of Fame speech short and to the point.
“A lot of the girls who are there now were young obviously — not to age ourselves — but they were watching us, and watching us just getting in the ring and wanting to be that. Whereas before, we pretty much — I know for myself, I learned in front of all the fans. I was thrown out there. Of course I showed up early and practiced, but basically, I was learning in front of the fans.” Wilson said.
One star who has been making a name for himself on the independent scene lately has been Jonathan Gresham. Gresham is a star on the rise right now, and he may have just secured his biggest win to date over the weekend. During an event for The Crash Lucha Libre promotion in Mexico, Gresham was able to win the Crash Cruiserweight Championship. Gresham defeated Shane Strickland via submission to win the title in a Fatal 4-Way match also involving Bandido and Flamita. When the match was over, the crowd chanted for “NXT,” which is supposedly the next destination for Strickland. Afterwards, Strickland said farewell to the fans while Gresham walked away with the title that he had just managed to capture.
