- As noted, WWE announced that there will be an NXT: Takeover event during Royal Rumble weekend on Saturday, January 28th at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, TX. Triple H tweeted today that there will also be NXT live events in Texas before Takeover on Thursday, January 26th in Houston and Friday, January 27th in Dallas. Tickets go on sale for those shows this Friday at 10am CT at NXTTickets.com.
- The Sun and FOX Sports ran stories about Michael Cole namedropping Hulk Hogan at last night's Roadblock pay-per-view and how it may be another hint that Hogan will be working with WWE again. In case you missed it, during Charlotte's ring entrance, Cole said:
"14-0 in her career in singles pay-per-view matches. She is 17-2 all-time in pay-per-views, and regardless of what happens tonight, Charlotte will have the best start ever in any career in her first 20 pay-per-view matches. Better than the likes of Hulk Hogan, Brock Lesnar, and even The Undertaker."
- As seen over the weekend, Jesse Collings' 50-week feature looking at the 50 greatest wrestlers of the last 50 years ended with Ric Flair topping the list. Flair commented on the honor, writing on Twitter:
To Be The Man, You Have To Beat The Man - WOOOOO! https://t.co/63pIxjvOMJ— Ric Flair® (@RicFlairNatrBoy) December 19, 2016
