- We noted back in November that some WWE talents were trying to recruit ROH stars Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly with NXT loading up on talents for more touring plans in 2016. Contract talks between the team known as "reDRagon" and ROH were shutdown by company officials a few weeks back because the two sides were far apart on money. However, the talks with ROH are said to be progressing as their deals expire on Friday. This could mean that they aren't headed to WWE after all. The team also received feelers from TNA.
- WWE will be using a smaller stage for NXT "Takeover: Dallas" during WrestleMania 32 weekend, which will block fewer seats than usual and allow for 9,156 fans inside the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, instead of the 7,000 in a building of that size with a standard setup. This should be the third largest NXT crowd after "Takeover: Brooklyn" and "Takeover: London."
- Regarding The Rock's WWE WrestleMania 32 appearance, his availability to appear on RAW and do promotional work for the show could be limited due to Baywatch filming.
