- The Bludgeon Brothers (Luke Harper and Erick Rowan) debuted at a WWE live event in Dublin two days ago by attacking some WWE UK competitors. This led to a match where The Bludgeon Brothers and The Ascension defeated The Colons and Breezango. The repackaged gimmick also came with new entrance music, which you can hear in the video above.
- WWE posted a gallery from their live event in London, England. Among the photos is Triple H teaming up with Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, Triple H was a late replacement for Roman Reigns as Reigns is still not cleared for action.
- As noted, WWE NXT newcomer Lio Rush picked up some heat online after he tweeted on Emma's WWE departure after the company announced her release on Sunday, along with the releases of Summer Rae and Darren Young. In a now-deleted tweet that referenced Emma's back-to-back losses to new Raw Superstar Asuka just days before, Rush wrote: "I guess these are the things that happen when you're not TRULY ready for @WWEAsuka."
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that the heat on Rush was so bad that there was almost immediate talk of the former ROH star being fired from the company. It was also noted that Rush is going to have to put in work to get the heat off of him. It was speculated that Rush would have been released if it weren't for the apology coming soon after the original tweet, based on what sources were saying about the situation. Yesterday, Rush tweeted out some thoughts about how "A mistake should be a temporary and necessary detour, not a dead end." Following that up with, "I can assure you this isn't the end, it's only the beginning. Live, learn, and move forward."
A mistake should be your teacher, not your attacker. A lesson, not a loss. A temporary and NECESSARY detour, not a dead end.— M.O.T.H (@itsLioRush) November 4, 2017
