- Mike Johnson of has confirmed a previous report by Twitter account @WrestleVotes that WWE will be bringing back the Payback PPV on Sunday, August 30th. Johnson speculated that there could be a similar scenario as to what WWE did with the Survivor Series and Tuesday in Texas PPV events back in 1991:

"One would assume the plan is to do a major angle at Summerslam to play into returning with a PPV just seven days later."

At the 1991 Survivor Series, The Undertaker defeated Hulk Hogan for the WWE Title in a controversial finish which led to a rematch at the Tuesday in Texas PPV just days later.

- is reporting that WWE has hired two or three new writers specifically for the NXT brand. It's unknown if the hirings have anything to do with making the show more appealing to younger viewers. During WWE's recent investors call, McMahon commented on NXT's TV viewership numbers:

"Iím very happy with them, especially in the current circumstances. Everything is going well. We look at the long-term of that, not the short-term of that. And the long term is very exciting. We have a lot of stars. There are a lot of hungry young athletes, and the pipeline to bring in more as they continue to train and get better is very exciting. The future is very bright in that regard." (quote courtesy of
