- As noted earlier, although Bayley was not drafted she was still heavily rumored to be Sasha Banks' mystery partner for this Sunday's Battleground PPV. However, this week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that the next round of NXT callups aren't to be expected until the fall, and that Bayley is one of the names in that batch.

- It is also being reported that Kota Ibushi, Cedric Alexander, Gran Metalik, and Akira Tozawa have all been offered contracts, and that they all are probable to sign.

- WWE is also polling fans on which brand has the better roster, and as of this writing SmackDown is leading the charge.
