- As seen above, The Rock's new YouTube channel is capitalizing off the Pokemon Go craze with the rarest Pokemon of all-time - PokeRock. Rock wrote on Instagram: "He's rare, uncatchable, bad ass and talks s--t."
- As noted, Johnny Gargano is wrapping up on the indies as he will become a full-time WWE NXT Superstar in September. WWN VP of Talent Relations Gabe Sapolsky issued the following statement on Gargano's farewell via the WWN Alerts:
"I knew the look in Johnny Gargano's eyes when he returned to the locker room after his battle against Drew Galloway at EVOLVE 65 last Sunday. He realized it was time to go. We have grown to depend on Gargano over the years. He is our ace. However, EVOLVE is not meant to be a destination point in a wrestler's career. It is meant to be a place for pro wrestling and pro wrestling to evolve. In order for that to happen, change is necessary. The last several months have seen Johnny become more prominent in NXT, gain success in the WWE Cruiserweight Classic and become engaged in an intense war in EVOLVE. It was too much and something had to give. In order for Johnny to grow in this industry, he had to leave WWN. In order for new stars to rise in EVOLVE, Johnny had to move aside from the road he paved. It all leads to what will be the most emotional weekend in EVOLVE history. We say farewell to our icon at EVOLVE 68 in Deer Park, NY on September 10th and EVOLVE 69 in Queens, NY on September 11th. Thank you, Johnny."
