Who Did Some WWE Officials Want On The WWE 2K16 Cover?, Xavier Woods Praise, WWE Attendance

- Apparently there was a push within WWE at one point for Roman Reigns to be on the cover of the upcoming WWE 2K16 video game. However, there was a feeling that Steve Austin would mean more for the game when it came to promoting it, so they went with him.

- 2K Sports sources noted to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that John Cena is the best out of any other WWE talent when they have them do the unscripted old-school style interviews with bullet points. They also said the Superstar who can hang with Cena on the old-school promos is Xavier Woods.

- The August 21st WWE Supershow live event in Bridgeport, CT drew 6,000 fans.

- For the first time in American history, a company sold out an NBA arena three straight nights when WWE was at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last week. They announced 15,589 fans for NXT "Takeover: Brooklyn", 15,702 fans for SummerSlam and 15,597 fans for RAW. It should be noted that the arena was set up for just 13,438 fans. There could have been more seats released at the last minute but not more than a few hundred. WWE usually adds around 2,000 to their public attendance announcements and word is that there were actually a little over 13,000 fans in attendance each night.
