- WWE Shop is now selling WWE Universal Title replica belts for $429.99. It's noted that they aren't expected to be in-stock until December 12th.
- SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan, who has obviously suffered his own injury-related sacrifices, tweeted the following on Finn Balor being forced to drop the WWE Universal Title:
Regardless of brand, my heart goes out to @FinnBalor. He worked so hard for so long and should've had these kinds of opportunities long ago.— Daniel Bryan (@WWEDanielBryan) August 23, 2016
