Cara Getting a Title Shot?, Natalya Films Segment for Total Divas, More

Posted by DailyWrestlingNews.com on Thursday, May 16th, 2013

- This week’s WWE Five-Star Match of the Week was chosen by WWE agent Dean Malenko and he chose his match against Rey Mysterio from WCW’s The Great American Bash 1996. Malenko told WWE.com:

“That was a special night for me because Rey was an opponent I always wanted to work against in the ring. I asked the offices of WCW if we could bring him in for a shot at my Cruiserweight Championship, because it was a match that I anticipated having a lot of fun with. I love when two styles clash — Rey being a lucha libre style performer and a very impactful, aerially talented guy, and myself being more of a mat technician. What really stands out about that night was the guys in the back being really disappointed seeing Rey. They thought he was really small and very young-looking, which we kind of laugh at now. But it ended up being one of the only times in 20-some odd years of being in the business that I walked back in the dressing room and my peers stood on their feet applauding this guy’s ability and what he did that night. It was a really neat scene for me to see and it definitely welcomed Rey into the fold of WCW. It was a great moment and one that I cherish very highly.”

- Natalya filmed a segment for WWE’s Total Divas show this week that featured one of The Usos and WWE Diva Naomi. It appears Naomi and one of the Usos brothers may be an item. Natalya tweeted this photo:

- Sin Cara returned to WWE TV on last night’s episode of Main Event. He defeated Intercontinental Title Champion Wade Barrett in a non-title match and is now a new contender for the belt.
