- Skybet has released early odds for the 2019 Royal Rumble match. The Rock is currently favored to win the Rumble as a 2/1 favorite, followed by Daniel Bryan (6/1), Seth Rollins (8/1) and Braun Strowman (9/1). Roman Reigns, John Cena and Finn Balor all have 12/1 odds of winning the match. Talk of The Rock returning for next year's WrestleMania has increased lately, and WWE has been dropping his name on television a lot more recently. At the Skyscraper premiere last month, Rock told Cathy Kelley that he "can't wait to get back to a WWE ring."
"I can't wait to get back to a WWE ring," Rock said. "People always ask me 'what's it like being in a WWE ring?' I always tell them there's nothing like it. There's nothing like inside a WWE ring because there's a certain live crowd acumen that is second to none. That was always and will always be the best part of my job when it comes to wrestling. Whether I'm wresting a match or just giving a promo. That connection with the audience, there's nothing like it."

- Sky Sports posted the video below from their interview with Daniel Bryan before last Sunday's SummerSlam pay-per-view. In the clip, Bryan discussed working with Big Cass this past spring.
"I really liked working with Big Cass," Bryan admitted. "I thought that he progressed a lot in the time that we were working together. I honestly wish him the best of luck. I like him a lot as a person and as a wrestler so I hope he does really well."
