- As noted, today marks the 25th anniversary of the first-ever WWE In Your House pay-per-view. To celebrate, WWE posted this Playlist episode looking at the best of In Your House events. The WWE NXT "Takeover: In Your House" special will air live on the WWE Network on Sunday, June 7 from Full Sail University.
- Former WWE Superstar Zack Ryder turns 35 years old today while former WCW star Sgt. Buddy Lee Parker turns 60 and the legendary Col. Robert Parker (Robert Fuller) turns 70. Also, today would have been the 65th birthday of WWE Legend Vader and the 60th birthday of "Dr. Death" Steve Williams.

NXT UK Champion WALTER also commented on the win, writing, "Teamkampf Weltmeister!"
Imperium member Alexander Wolfe, who like WALTER is stuck overseas due to COVID-19, congratulated his partners on the win as well.
Wolfe wrote, "Hard work pays off especially for those who respect the mat. Congratulations to @FabianAichner & @Marcel_B_WWE! Well deserved. #AndNew #NXTTagTeamChampions #IMPERIUM #TheMatIsSacred #WWE #NXT"
