Uhaa Nation has been given a new theme song to use in NXT, and it is interesting to note that it is a piece that was utilized on the very first episode of Impact Wrestling that aired on Destination America. Since that could be grounds for a lawsuit, someone might have made a mistake backstage. A change should be expected soon, as the legal department already has their hands full with lawsuits.

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.

A rather interesting discussion took place between Tammy Sytch and a person that she thought was Jim Ross on social media yesterday. The two of them discussed the rumors about Sytch doing porn. Some of the comments made towards her were rather raunchy, including a sexually suggestive idea that involves barbecue sauce. The real Ross took to his blog earlier today to inform fans that it was a fake account and not words coming from him.

On Monday Night Raw, WWE set forth the story line where Lana was dumped by Rusev, only to fall into the arms of Dolph Ziggler. The two shared a kiss in the middle of the ring that generated a really good reaction from the audience.
