- As noted (here and here), WWE Battleground has yet to sell out, despite WWE dropping ticket prices for the event. Now, WWE has John Cena putting out an important message to "Everyone on the internet" to get to Philadelphia and watch him defeat Rusev in a Flag match.
- A pro Street Fighter gamer recently made it to the finals at EVO, but lost, and he was apparently down in the dumps because of this. CM Punk (and his dog, Larry) sent him a message via Kenny Omega's Twitter. Along with some words of encouragement, Punk said, "Fall down once, get up twice. Falls down seven times, get up eight. See you next year in the finals."
