- WWE world heavyweight champion Seth Rollins appeared on the latest edition of "The Buzz with Jimmy Traina" to promote Sunday's WWE Battleground pay-per-view. During the interview, Rollins was asked about why he no longer uses the Curb Stomp as his finisher.
"It was a decision that was collectively made from a PR standpoint," Rollins said. "Curb stomp just seemed like it was too perceptually violent, I guess you would say. I never hurt anyone with it. It was just something we didn't want kids trying on each other."
- Even with Battleground this Sunday, WWE will be presenting three live events this weekend starting with a show tonight at the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Rollins, John Cena, Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, Bray Wyatt and Kevin Owens are all slated to appear. Cena and Owens will headline Saturday's show at the David S. Palmer Arena in Danville, IL, while Rollins and Reigns will headline that night's live event at the Peoria Civic Center in Peoria, IL.
