– As noted, night’s WWE NXT episode featured a new “coming soon” vignette for veteran talent Mercedes Martinez, who finally inked a contract with the company back in January. Above is the full promo.

“19 years I’ve been rugged, thugged, grinding, hustling, and here I am,” Martinez says in the vignette. “No non-sense, all action. I’m not here to lose. Every single female better watch their back. Everyone needs to know who Mercedes Martinez is.”

– Fans want NXT Superstars The Velveteen Dream and Dexter Lumis to form a new tag team. Last night’s NXT episode saw Dream dismiss the idea after Lumis created a drawing of the two holding the NXT Tag Team Titles together. WWE issued a poll today asking fans if Dream should team up with Lumis. As of this writing, 69% voted yes while the rest went with no.

– As noted earlier at this link, WWE issued a storyline update today noting that they are reviewing the conduct of Nia Jax and referee John Cone after the controversial finish in Jax’s loss to RAW Women’s Champion Asuka this past Monday night. Cone also issued comments and said he did not think it was a fast count. The pin came as Cone was about to disqualify Jax for putting hands on him.

Jax took to Twitter this afternoon and responded to WWE’s announcement.

“What a punk! [pouting face emoji],” she wrote.

Jax also said Cone needs to learn how to referee.

She added in a follow-up tweet, “Dear John, Learn how to do your job! Sincerely, Me”

Speculation is that this finish and the double count out at Backlash will lead to some sort of stipulation match between Jax and Asuka at WWE Extreme Rules on July 19.

Stay tuned for updates. Below are the full tweets from Jax:
