- The rumor mill heated up on Monday when news on Bill Goldberg's scheduled WWE SummerSlam weekend appearance came out. As noted, the appearances are related to the WWE 2K17 video game. Then, WWE pulled a video shortly after posting it that had Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman hyping the WWE 2K17 game with Lesnar warning Goldberg that he was next. That video was re-added during RAW.
- We noted before via The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Vince McMahon had missed a few weeks of WWE TV tapings and wasn't scheduled to be back until SummerSlam. In an update, Vince was backstage at last night's RAW in Corpus Christi. While he was away for two weeks, Vince continued to micromanage every detail of RAW and SmackDown, and was on the phone with agents during production meetings.
