- Carmella tried to cash-in her Money In the Bank title shot against SmackDown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair on tonight's SmackDown episode but it backfired on her and the bell never rang. The attempt came after The Riott Squad's Liv Morgan, Sarah Logan and Ruby Riott triple teamed Flair in the ring. You can see video from the segment above.

- TJP and Cedric Alexander have advanced to the second round of the WWE Cruiserweight Title tournament. TJP defeated Tyler Bate while Cedric defeated Gran Metalik in first-round matches on tonight's WWE 205 Live episode. As noted before, former TNA star Rockstar Spud debuted as the new 205 Live General Manager tonight, using the name Drake Maverick, and announced the 16-man tournament to end at WrestleMania 34 with the winner capturing the vacant WWE Cruiserweight Title.

The Phoenix Police department is still investigating those accusations.
