- As noted, Scott Hall injured himself in the gym and Kevin Nash is dealing with a case of shingles. The two are unable to work this weekend's Big Time Wrestling events in the Northeast but the promoters were able to replace them with Matt Hardy and Scott Steiner. These events will also feature Sean "X-Pac" Waltman reuniting with former DX partner Billy Gunn. Waltman tweeted:

- As noted, The Usos vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day at WWE TLC will now be a Ladder Match. WWE's website has confirmed that both titles will be held above the ring. They wrote the following teaser for the match:
With the addition of the Ladder Match rules, the three teams will have a new objective at WWE TLC: The New Day's titles will be suspended above the ring, and the first team to retrieve them by climbing the ladder and grabbing both championships will be declared the winners of the match.
The WWE Universe must begin to wonder if the insertion of ladders puts The New Day at a tremendous disadvantage heading into the contest. Though Kofi Kingston is a veteran of the Ladder Match, the inspirational group will now be pitted against four of the quickest, most agile and fearless competitors in all of WWE, who unquestionably will look to not only make a statement, but also literally snatch the championships away from The New Day.
