Get caught up to speed with the latest news on Owens, Lesnar, NXT, and More!
Kevin Owens Headed Back To NXT?
NXT makes its USA debut tonight, and there may be a surprise or two in store. According to PWInsider, the expectations with many backstage in WWE is that Kevin Owens will be returning to NXT, which ties in the storyline of him being fired from WWE.
It has long been rumored that WWE could possibly be sending some main rosters stars back down to NXT even before the move to USA was announced. I like the idea, and it plays into the current Owens and Shane McMahon storyline. Could it be possible that we seen even more stars from the main roster return to NXT?
Paul Heyman In Charge Of RAW
Pro Wrestling Sheet is reporting that Paul Heyman was fully in charge of RAW this week. Kevin Dunn, HHH, and Vince McMahon were all absent from backstage. HHH obviously already had his hands full with working on the NXT on USA debut this week.
I wish the company would let Heyman always be in charge of RAW, however, I can’t see that happening anytime soon.

WWE is going to pull out all the stops for the first episode of SmackDown on FOX. While the first episode will most likely draw a decent rating, it will be interesting to see what the company does to continue to draw ratings. They wont have Lesnar challenging for the title every week.
AEW Weekly TV On TNT Finally Has A Name?
Shortly after the announcement of the formation of AEW and the announcement of weekly television on TNT, people wondered what the weekly TV show would be named. There were initial rumors that the program would be titled Tuesday Night Dynamite. Those rumors would be shot down as the program was moved to Wednesday. A recent trademark filing shows that AEW filed for the name All Elite Wrestling: Dynamite. Tony Kahn had stated he wanted the program to have a name, and for the show not to be titled All Elite Wrestling On TNT.
I don’t know why the company is so fascinated with the program being named dynamite, but to each his own.
