— As noted earlier here on the website, WWE NXT stars Sami Zayn and Adrian Neville gave a farewell speech to NXT referee Darrick Moore following the NXT live event on June 20th.

Some of you may remember Engler as he used to work in TNA as Rudy Charles.
— As noted earlier here on the website, Vince McMahon is said to be down on Bo Dallas, Adam Rose and Divas Champion Paige. He’s known for having a hard time accepting new talent as top stars.
Adam Rose being left off RAW the last few weeks was said to be a sign that they are cooling down on him. It doesn’t help that Executive Vice President of Television Production Kevin Dunn has buried Rose backstage and he is said to have a lot of pull.
Another sign is the fact that even though Paige has the Divas title, she hasn’t have a lot of character development. Instead, they’ve been building up Alicia Fox, who Dunn is a huge fan of.
Bo Dallas is still getting pushed on almost every show, so Vince’s opinion hasn’t really hurt him yet.
