- Above is week four of The Miz's Fantasy Football Minute.

- Chris Jericho will be appearing on The Eric Andre Show this Friday night at midnight on Adult Swim.

- As noted, Kota Ibushi has been added to the 16-team WWE NXT Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Ibushi will team with Hideo Itami to face Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss. The tournament kicks off next week and ends at "Takeover: Toronto" during Survivor Series weekend. Dave Meltzer noted that Ibushi has not signed with WWE, but is open for taking dates from them in addition to the tag team tournament.

- WWE.com has an interview with John Alicastro & Mike Lauri of CFO$ about TJ Perkins' new theme, "Playing with Power." They discussed their love of video games, and said that they had always been wanting to write a retro game song.

"I have literally wanted to write a video game-style song since I first started playing music," said Alicastro. "From when I was 10 years old, I was so inspired by that style of music. It was the soundtrack of our childhood, and when we were given the opportunity to do this, it was a dream come true."

"It's all about that 8-bit pallet," added Lauri. "That's what the foundation of T.J.'s theme is, with a rock track happening over it. Utilizing those sounds isn't something we typically get to do, which makes it exciting. Instead of using more common instrumentation, we got to delve back into those chip sounds from the 80s."
