WWE is set to hold its first stadium show in the United Kingdom in 30 years.
It will be at the 74-thousand seat Principality Stadium in Cardiff, Wales on Sunday, September 3.
WWE has an unspecified “premium live event” on its schedule for Sunday, September 4th. So, it would appear that is being moved up a day - making it the first WWE event in the UK of this size and scope since SummerSlam in 1992.
Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins will meet again…at WrestleMania Backlash on Sunday, May 8th.
Rhodes beat The Miz on last night’s RAW.
Sonya Deville will be Bianca Belair’s next challenger for the RAW Women’s Title. Deville lured Belair into signing an open contract last night…and then attacked her.
Deville made her move after Belair beat Queen Zelina.
The women’s tag title match being promoted for last night did NOT happen. Commentary indicated Rhea Ripley was kept off the show due to COVID-19 protocols. The match is now being promoted for next Monday’s RAW.
Meanwhile, one-half of the women’s tag champs Naomi pinned Liv Morgan with a rollup last night.
Rey Mysterio also did not appear last night. Instead, his son Dominik took a loss to Veer Mahaan, who continued the beating after the match. Dominik was taken away on a stretcher to a backstage ambulance.
The SmackDown Tag Champs The Usos beat the Street Profits in last night’s main event. The Usos made it clear they want a title unification match against the RAW Tag Champs RK-Bro, who beat the Alpha Academy last night.
The match between AJ Styles and Damian Priest ended in a no-contest.
Austin Theory is now known simply as “Theory”. He’ll get a U.S. Title match against Finn Balor next Monday.
Tommaso Ciampa officially joined the RAW roster last night.
THREE title matches are set for tonight’s NXT.
The next holders of the vacant NXT Tag Titles will be decided in a 5-team gauntlet match. Those teams are Grayson Waller & Sanga, Legado del Fantasma, The Creed Brothers, Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen, and Pretty Deadly.
Also tonight…Mandy Rose defends the NXT Women’s Title against Dakota Kai…and Cameron Grimes puts the North American Championship on the line against Solo Sikoa.
There’s an update on Shinjiro Otani. ZERO1 confirmed early Tuesday that Otani suffered a cervical spinal cord injury during a match on Sunday. He’s been transferred to an intensive care unit and is scheduled to undergo surgery on Wednesday.
