Happy Valentine’s Day wrestling fans. If you haven’t heard already, we put together a collection of WWE themed V-Day cards to help you spice up your romantic life! Check them out at this link.

Tonight we’ve got NXT on the WWE Network at 8/7c with full live coverage presented by yours truly. TM61 returns to action, Aleister Black will be on hand for the first time since NXT Takeover: Philadelphia, and Ember Moon is set to defend the NXT Women’s Championship one more time against the “Queen of Spades” Shayna Baszler.

—— WWE NEWS ——

For the second show in two days, WWE ended this week’s episode of Smackdown Live with a twist ending, drastically altering the main event of their upcoming pay-per-view. What was supposed to be a singles match for the WWE Championship turned into a triple threat last week, and now they’ve added both Dolph Ziggler and Baron Corbin to the mix for a Fatal 5-Way match at WWE Fastlane. AJ Styles is not the only champion with way too many challengers, as Bobby Roode now finds himself in the middle of a bizarre situation with Jinder Mahal and Randy Orton (and maybe Rusev?).

205 Live was another noteworthy show with two more championship tournament bouts, the return of WWE UK star Mark Andrews, and a seemingly brand new Drew Gulak emerging to brutally assault and defeat Tony Nese. Details on who advanced in the tournament.  It was also announced that NXT Superstar Buddy Murphy would be called up to take part in the tournament next week (DETAILS).
