- There has been a lot of recent discussion on holding the second Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament in WWE NXT. Plans for the tournament were nixed as of a few days ago but are now back on. No word yet on when it will be held. Samoa Joe and Finn Balor won the inaugural tournament last year.

- Two-time NCAA Heavyweight Champion Nick Gwiazdowski was ringside for WWE Backlash this past Sunday. It's believed that he will receive a WWE offer after the 2020 Olympics.

- Due to Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose all working as babyfaces right now, there has been talk of doing another reunion spot with The Shield at an upcoming dual-brand pay-per-view, perhaps the Survivor Series or the Royal Rumble.
