- No word yet on if this is still the plan because of the brand extension but WWE originally had current WWE NXT Tag Team Champions "American Alpha" Chad Gable and Jason Jordan to the main roster in the fall.
- We noted before that a mistake reportedly got The Brooklyn Brawler fired from WWE several weeks back, despite working for the company for more than 30 years. Brawler recently called into Taz's live show and there's a lot of internal speculation that led to his departure. The Wrestling Observer notes that is not the official reason but unofficially, it did not help him at all, especially doing it so close to when they were making cuts.
