1. News and Notes

  • NXT aired the final matches from their tapings on 1/30/19 this week. The brand was back inside Full Sail last night while the show was airing, however, taping matches for the next few weeks of NXT television.
  • (Kayfabe busting note) There was some uncertainty from the live crowd at Full Sail as to who would win between Gargano and Velveteen Dream this week as two different endings to the match were taped on 1/30, one with each wrestler winning clean. The one where Velveteen Dream won clean was ultimately chosen to air.
  • Matt Riddle took part in an interview with the WWE PC YouTube channel this week and mentioned he might want to stay in NXT rather than go up to WWE.

  • Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Ricochet, and Aleister Black were all featured on the WWE main roster this week. Black ended up going 3-0 this week on WWE television, picking up wins on Raw, Smackdown, and NXT.
  • The Dusty Rhodes Classic will be returning in two weeks. An 8-team single elimination tournament will be the format this year. 4 teams have been announced thus far:
    • Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish (Undisputed Era)
    • Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel
    • The Forgotten Sons
    • The Street Profits
