In a rather interesting move, WWE is now encouraging fans that attend live events to dress up as their favorite wrestlers and legends. This comes shortly after Vince McMahon grew irate over Dwayne Johnson breaking away from the script on a recent episode of Monday Night Raw and putting focus on fans that were dressed as Randy Savage and Hulk Hogan, the latter of which has been banned from the company because of racial comments.

In a very interesting move, ROH has decided to give Matt Jackson a chance at their world heavyweight championship on Saturday night at a live event in Duluth, Georgia. Jackson will be challenge Jay Lethal for the title that night. Matt normally works tag team matches with his brother, but Ring of Honor management wants to see how well he can do as a singles competitor, much like what the NWA did with Ricky Morton and Ric Flair.

During the NXT live event in Green Bay over the weekend, Finn Balor defended the heavyweight championship against Sami Zayn. It is interesting to note that Balor worked as a heel during the match. Finn has been teasing fans that the Bullet Club stable was coming to WWE soon. If formed, Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows are more than likely going to be portraying heels, so it makes sense for Balor to become one as well.

Some interesting details have surfaced about the recent tour that WWE did in Mexico. Promoters in that country were apparently unhappy with the company because they did not book a show that was up to the standards that they had promised. Fearing that they would lose out on a lucrative market, management desperately called Undertaker to see if he would work a couple of live events. That was their way of appeasing the foreign promoters.

The on screen relationship between Sheamus and Wade Barrett might be expanded on television soon. Rumor has it that WWE is considering a tag team consisting of those two real life friends. The Celtic Warrior attempted to help Barrett during his match against Chris Jericho at a live event in Mexico over the weekend. Management could be testing out the waters. Barrett has stated that he would like to join the tag team division.

An interesting name has surfaced as the potential mystery partner for Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns at Night of Champions. There is a small possibility that Chris Jericho could be given that role since his appearance would be quite a treat for the audience. Jericho has stayed in shape by working live events for WWE. He has long stated that he would do television or pay per view if it was something special.

Eric Bischoff conveyed a rather interesting story during a recent interview. He stated that Vince McMahon once had to hop on his private jet and fly to a live event because members of the Kliq refused to lose their matches for the evening. The booking team were not able to resolve the situation, so the SEO had no choice but to go out there himself.

An interesting scenario played out at a recent GFW live event in Jackson, Mississippi. Scott Steiner was in the ring, cutting a promo, when he was interrupted by Chris Masters. The two had to be pulled apart to stop a brawl. Masters wrestled Benjamin in the main event, and Steiner came out to hit Masters with a bat. Benjamin then cut a promo, telling the fans that he defended Steiner's honor.

In a rather interesting development, WWE has decided to pull Kevin Owens from the upcoming series of live events. The NXT Heavyweight Champion was initially scheduled to work matches against John Cena at these shows. Since he has been pulled, the front office decided to add Wade Barrett as a replacement. He will more than likely work the matches against Cena. No word yet on why Owens was pulled for the weekend.
