- According to Dave Meltzer on this morning's Wrestling Observer Radio, one of the reasons for the split between Blake and Murphy on last night's NXT was that Wesley Blake recently underwent knee surgery. Blake barely competed in the match, and hasn't competed since April 9.
- It was also noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that the plan for the June 8 NXT Takeover is a match between Austin Aries and Shinsuke Nakamura. The two teamed together on last night's episode of WWE NXT.
- On last night's WWE NXT, Carmella dropped the term 'diva' from her entrance to reflect WWE's new direction with women performers.
