Lars Sullivan was set to debut on Raw this week when he suffered from what is believed to be an anxiety attack and he was not used. Instead of showing up at SmackDown Live the next night as scheduled, he was flown back home to Colorado.
To make matters even more interesting, Sullivan had a big push in store for him. WWE booked Lars Sullivan in a WrestleMania match against John Cena and that is a huge spot for a new Superstar to be in.
Although it’s not out of the picture that Sullivan could rebound and proceed with WWE’s plans for him, it could be up in the air.
Dave Meltzer discussed Sullivan’s situation in depth during Wrestling Observer Radio where he disclosed that he has no new information about Lars Sullivan’s condition, but he also doesn’t know if WWE will carry on with their WrestleMania plans for The Freak either.
“No update at all. Yeah, no update at all. I was hoping that I would know more, but I don’t. He as far as I think he went home, I know he went home to Colorado on Tuesday.”
“Did not go to SmackDown in Jacksonville. The guy was booked in a WrestleMania match against John Cena. I wrote it in The Observer. I was not told the finish. In fact, when I was asked I was told they had not discussed the finish.”
“Logic tells me that he was beating John Cena at WrestleMania. I could not imagine any other finish. I could be wrong, but that’s not the point. I don’t know if that match is still on. I think that we probably won’t know anything until The Rumble. I would presume that angle would be at The Rumble because Cena is working The Rumble.”
“I mean they still could. I don’t know how the company’s taking any of this, but it’s too bad. The guy was in a position, I mean you beat Cena at WrestleMania after three months on the main roster or even just wrestle Cena and be in that position because he’s going to be on one of the biggest pushed matches on the show. He’s going to murder everybody. The guy’s got a great look.”
“The thing is his look comes across more live than on TV, but he’s got a great look. He’s pretty damn athletic. He’s got a lot going for him and he can talk too — I would never let him talk, but he actually can talk. He is a guy who just needs to stand there like a monster and have a great talker and I don’t mean Lio Rush. I mean someone who is a lot more diabolical and a lot less cartoony.”
Lars Sullivan still has an amazing future ahead of him. At 30-years-old, he is a Superstar that came in from the bodybuilding world and had no previous professional wrestling experience. WWE saw his potential and molded The Freak like a diamond in the rough.
Sullivan might be a performer from a different era given his amazing size and ability. We are pulling for Lars if anything because WWE needs as many top stars as they can get. This is especially true if it is a homegrown talent like Sullivan.
