- As noted, the WWE Draft still hasn't gone into effect for live events. Seth Rollins and Roman Reigns of RAW will be working one leg of this weekend's tour with SmackDown stars AJ Styles and Bray Wyatt. WWE Champion Dean Ambrose and Dolph Ziggler of SmackDown will be working the other leg of the tour with RAW stars Chris Jericho and Cesaro. Meanwhile Finn Balor, Mojo Rawley, Nia Jax and Carmella will be working this weekend's NXT tour in Texas.
- Also as noted, there will apparently be some exceptions with stars from one brand appearing on shows for the other as John Cena has been added to the upcoming WWE RAW live event in Manila on September 9th. The Big Show was recently in Manila to publicize the show, and spoke to reporters about the addition of Cena.
"The fans here are amazing with their support to the WWE," said Big Show (h/t to Business World Online for the transcription). For the September event here in Manila there will be an amazing card. John Cena has been added to the card, which is huge. Roman Reigns, myself, Seth Rollins and Chris Jericho will also be coming."
