WWE: New Year’s Revolution On Ten Sports

MUMBAI: The worlds top wrestlers are on Ten Sports this Sunday in the first Pay Per View Special of the New Year. It airs on Sunday, 21st January 2007 at 11.30 am

The undoubted highlight of a packed show is John Cena's defence of the WWE Championship against the undefeated Samoan Bulldozer, Umaga.

The challenge for this match was originally laid out on Raw one night after Survivor Series. While Umaga was disqualified at the pay-per-view, the Samoan Bulldozer went on a rampage and looked dominant by destroying everything in his path. Because of this, and because no one has been able to challenge Umaga since his debut in April, manager Armando Alejandro Estrada felt that the only thing left for his undefeated protégé to do was become WWE Champion. Moments after Estrada laid out the challenge, Cena stormed to the ring and quickly accepted before staring down Umaga.

The following week, Jonathan Coachman announced that the battle between Cena and Umaga would take place at New Year’s Revolution. Later that night, after The Champ defeated Chris Masters in a Master Lock Challenge, the Bulldozer stormed the ring looking to get it on early. Cena met him when he did, and the two men engaged in a lengthy brawl that took almost a dozen people to break up.

In over eight months of competition, no one has been able to defeat the dangerous Samoan Bulldozer. With the WWE Championship at stake, will that streak continue or will John Cena finally put a blemish on Umaga’s record
