- We noted before that Dean Ambrose was being referred to the WWE Champion on this week's RAW, a sign that WWE has plans to use two world titles for the upcoming Brand Extension. That change has also been made on WWE's website with the title now being referred to as just the WWE Championship, not the WWE World Heavyweight Title.
- It looks like Hideo Itami is finally ready to return to NXT action after being out since May 2015. Itami wrote "see you soon" back in late May and tweeted the following this week, indicating a return at this weekend's Winter Haven live event. Shinsuke Nakamura also tweeted a now-deleted photo with Itami this past week, saying he's ready to return.
