- Above, WWE highlighted the NXT Women's Champion Ember Moon appearing on the upcoming episode of NXT, which will air on the USA Network on Wednesday at 7pm ET. The episode will also air at its usual 8pm ET time slot on the WWE Network. Moon won the vacant title after defeating Kairi Sane, Nikki Cross, and Peyton Royce at NXT TakeOver: WarGames.
- As noted, last month David Otunga and singer Jennifer Hudson had ended their 10 year relationship. Hudson filed for a protective order against the WWE announcer, alleging "aggressive, threatening and harassing behavior" that led to a domestic battery investigation by police. Otunga denied the accusations, via his lawyer, and claimed Hudson was just trying to make him look bad for the sake of a custody dispute over their son, David Jr. The dispute forced Otunga to take the WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view off as he was scheduled to work the pre-show panel. Since then, TMZ reported Otunga now has primary custody of their son due to Jennifer's travel schedule and that Hudson also dropped the protective order. According to the WWE Network schedule, David Otunga, Renee Young, and Peter Rosenberg will be on the Clash of Champions Kickoff panel, this Sunday.
- A fan commented that The Rock was in Minneapolis filming a Super Bowl commercial for one of his upcoming movies, Skyscraper. Rock replied and looked to confirm that they had something big in store to promote the movie. Skyscraper is expected to be released on July 13.
