  • Share

As reported earlier, WWE conducted an injury angle at this morning’s WrestleMania Axxess affecting the Eight-Man Tag Team Match at WrestleMania XXVII featuring Big Show, Kane, Santino Marella and Vladimir Kozlov vs. Ezekiel Jackson, Heath Slater, Justin Gabriel and Wade Barrett.

Following Kozlov’s victory over Tyler Reks, The Corre attacked the Raw Superstar. The faction used the steel steps to crush The Moscow Mauler’s shoulder against the ring post.

WWE acknowledged the attack on the company website: “Twitter and YouTube has since erupted with photos and videos of the incident. The footage only serves to leave the WWE Universe wondering about Kozlov’s condition, or what condition he’ll be in for the Eight-Man Tag Team Match at WrestleMania.”

The angle will play out with Kozlov being removed from the Eight-Man Tag Team Match and replaced by Kofi Kingston. The announcement is not expected to made until the match takes place. Kingston dropped the Intercontinental Championship to Barrett last week on Smackdown.

    Sky Sports messed up an advert for Wrestlemania Revenge Tour, UK, apparently John Cena will be taking on The Miz for the WWE Title on the first date – this will post date tonights Wrestlemania so they’ve just given away that The Miz will retain the tittle tonight!!! Poorly played by Sky Broadcasting. The add took place in the 2nd or 3rd ad break in the WWE Late Night Smackdown Special broadcast last night on SKY SPORTS HD 4.

    Don’t be so silly. I don’t think Alex Riley will break up from The Miz. I hop John Cena will be the new WWE Champion…
