- WWE posted this video of makeup artist Mimi Choi creating a complex Halloween face inspired by Asuka.
"It's new for me from being an Olympian and a fighter from having this tunnel focus and not being able to think about anything else," Rousey said. "I would feel myself becoming a smaller and smaller fraction of my personality as the event came closer because as a survival trait you have to. I don't really feel like I'm in fight or flight mode all the time. I'm ready to fight but I'm happy at all time and relaxed at all times. It's pretty different for me to be able to relax and be in a high pressure situation at the same time."
- The wXw promotion in Germany has announced that WWE NXT Superstar Marcel Barthel (Axel Dieter Jr.) will return to the promotion at their 18th anniversary event on Saturday, December 22 in Oberhausen, Germany. As noted recently, WWE has had talks of launching a NXT Germany brand that would see them work with wXw in some form, similar to how they have worked with PROGRESS Wrestling in the UK for the NXT UK brand.
Below are tweets on Barthel's return to wXw:
Last year at 17th Anni @TheWWEWolfe & @Marcel_B_WWE made a surprise appearance. At #wXw18thAnni Axel Dieter Jr returns home to wrestle. We appreciate our friends at @WWE allowing a current @WWENXT contracted talent to wrestle on a @wXwGermany event for the first time ever. https://t.co/5rRAz7CxUm— wXw Tas (@wXwTas) October 30, 2018
