Dana Brooke quarantined, pulled from WrestleMania 36 title match by WWE
WWE seem set to pull Dana Brooke from the SmackDown Women's Title picture at WrestleMania 36.
The official preview page for ’Mania’s ‘Six Pack Challenge’ match still shows Brooke as part of the match line-up. Then, when one reads the little blurb hyping the bout, only Bayley, Sasha Banks, Lacey Evans, Naomi and Tamina are listed.
Things got weirder when WWE flip-flopped between ‘Six Pack Challenge’ and ‘Fatal Five Way’ in the page’s URL, and they even uploaded a match graphic that ousted Dana from the line up.
Questions remain about her involvement in a championship flurry Paige had already announced on last week’s episode of SmackDown. Dave Meltzer, reporting on Wrestling Observer Radio, said that Dana is currently sick and in quarantine.
If that's the case, then obviously her inclusion is an absolute no-go. The health of her and her colleagues is absolutely paramount.
That’s the only justifiable reason why the company would be hesitant to include Dana, or why they’re switching between graphics willy-nilly. Brooke certainly deserves a spot at ’Mania more than Tamina; Jimmy Snuka’s daughter hasn’t really been on TV lately, whereas Dana has been working hard to prove herself despite regularly being cast as a dreaded ‘jobber-to-the-stars’.
