- Current backstage news on Seth Rollins knee injury from Monday night is that it is his right knee (the same one previously injured) and that it may be a torn MCL. The segment where he was injured was to set up a Seth Rollins vs. Samoa Joe match at Fastlane followed by a Seth Rollins vs. Triple H match at WrestleMania 33. All of these plans are now up in the air and could change as more info on Rollins injury comes out.
- Finn Balor posted a tweet to Seth Rollins after hearing about the injury:
- Tyler Bate will be defending his WWE UK Championship against Trent Seven on the February 15th episode of NXT. Bate made his debut this past week on NXT defeating Oney Lorcan.
- Reported by the Wrestling Observer, there is a rumor going around that John Cena’s WrestleMania plans could now be a mixed tag team match with him and Nikki Bella against The Miz and Maryse. If this is true, it is very sad.
- Corey Graves said his goodbyes last night from the NXT commentary booth now that he is full time working on RAW and 205 Live.
- WWE is now advertising Brock Lesnar vs. Kevin Owens for the WWE Universal Championship at their Madison Square Garden house show on March 12th.
