Getting started early because of my occasional night job, let’s check the day’s news:
- SmackDown Live’s ratings are up compared to recent weeks!
- Corey Graves has a T-Shirt. Don’t ask. It’s a picture of him saying “Shut up, Saxton.” Seriously, does anyone, like, ask a human being before making t-shirts nowadays?
- Hiromu Takahashi is back in Japan, getting more tests and treatment on his broken freakin’ neck. The fact that he was cleared for trans-oceanic flight, though, can only be a good sign.
- Celeste Bonin, best known as NXT Season 3 winner Kaitlyn (back when NXT was a talent search), will take part in the 2nd Annual Mae Young Classic.
- Both Fandango and Goldust had successful surgeries.
- Asuka/Carmella at Extreme Rules has been amended so that James Ellsworth will be suspended above the ring in a mini-cage. Hey, gotta move the toys.
- NXT: The Undisputed ERA look to reclaim the NXT Tag Team Titles they lost in the UK as they get their Contractually Obligated Rematch(tm) with Mustache Mountain.
- Lucha Underground: opportunities for Aztec Medallions, signifying entry into a Gift of the Gods match, abound with the most intriguing one being Cage vs. Mil Muertes.
Enjoy the night.
