Everything We Know Thus Far About Milwaukee


It's been the word on the mind of the wrestling world since Tuesday's edition of SmackDown Live. No one knows exactly what happened in Milwaukee between Aiden English and Lana, but it hasn't stopped people from speculating. 

Big E Thought Christian's Kazoo Would Break When He Chewed It, It Didn't

Here's what we know thus far: 

-Lana doesn't seem all that concerned.

-Rusev is more concerned. Despite shrugging it off backstage during SmackDown, he has yet to comment on Milwaukee on social media. In fact, Rusev has been more quiet on social media than usual over the weekend. Maybe he was tipped off to the Milwaukee announcement?

-The Rock may or may not be involved. On the January 25, 2016 edition of Raw, The Rock caught up with Lana backstage. During the segment, Rock referenced "One Night in Brooklyn" when he showed Lana how to the "Wisconsin Wheelbarrow." Does this mean anything? Maybe. Maybe not. Lana didn't exactly deny the encounter until Rusev appeared. If The Rock is telling the truth -- and there's no reason to think that The Rock is a liar -- it shows that Lana has stepped out on Rusev before and that she knows how those in Milwaukee get down.


-Research shows that Aiden English has never wrestled for WWE in Milwaukee. And that the last time Rusev wrestled in the city was October 22, 2016. This would have been shortly after Rusev and Lana were married. Rusev was on Raw at the time while English was on SmackDown. If something happened between Lana and English in Milwaukee, it would have been off company time.

-Renee Young, WWE's premiere investigative journalist, may know something.

-SmackDown Live General Manage Paige has yet to comment. Paige is the best authority figure in at least a decade and her silence speaks volumes. Either she knows what happened and thinks it's too big to reveal or even she is out in the dark. Shane McMahon has commented, but I'm sure it's been "duly noted." 

-Something happened in Milwaukee. And Aiden English will reveal that something next Tuesday.
