Former TNT Champion Sammy Guevara appeared on “The Rocker Morning Show,” and he was asked about WWE potentially collaborating with AEW. He said,
“Competition makes the best kind of shows. In the world of wrestling, never say never, but I don’t see that happening. If it ever happened, I’m all for it. That would be a very exciting show that would break numbers and be very exciting for fans. Will it ever happen? I have no idea.”
Maxxine Dupri won her singles match debut on the latest edition of WWE RAW, defeating Valhalla with a Japanese Ocean Cyclone Suplex.
AJ Styles praised Dupri on Twitter in the same way he previously praised Manami Toyota for using the move. Styles wrote, “I think it’s awesome! What’s old is new again.”

In a recent interview with “WWE Die Woche,” Grayson Waller name-dropped both Santos Escobar and Austin Theory while revealing his goals to claim the WWE United States Championship. He said,
“A lot. There’s a lot. I’ve done some big things in my career in the WWE. I’ve almost done it all, but the one thing I haven’t done yet is win a championship. So I think it’s time that I need to change that up, and the one that I’m looking at is the United States Championship. I think that’s a championship with a lot of history, a lot of big names have won that, and I’m looking at that division, and I’m just like, it’s missing something. I think it’s missing Grayson Waller. I had my opportunity in a four-way. Santos stole that match from me. So whether it’s Santos Escobar or Austin Theory, it doesn’t matter. I think you’re gonna see Grayson Waller with that United States Championship very soon.”
On a recent edition of the “Busted Open Radio” podcast, Roxanne Perez revealed how her bitter feud with Cora Jade inspired a young WWE fan to pursue wrestling. She said,
“This past weekend, we were at a live event and I did a meet-and-greet and there was a little girl. She was probably like 11 years old, 12 years old. She came up to me, and this is the first time this has happened to me, but she just started bawling her eyes out and was just like, ‘Thank you so much. You inspire me so much. I can’t believe that I’m actually meeting you.’”
“She’s like, ‘I want to be a wrestler. I’m going to start training, and what made me realize I wanted to be a wrestler was you and Cora Jade’s feud.’ And I was like, ‘Wow, that is so insane to me.’”

In a recent appearance on the “AEW Unrestricted” podcast, Mark Briscoe discussed transitioning from a live audience to TV-style wrestling over the course of his career.
Briscoe explained the difference between working for AEW and performing on the independent scene. He said,
“It really is a whole different product, when you’re talking about something like what we do with AEW. The biggest change for me is, I’m not actually wrestling as much. Me and Jay, we were just guns blazing every weekend for 22 years. Now I show up to work and sometimes I’ve got a match, sometimes I don’t. It’s definitely a different speed, I’m traveling a lot more, but not wrestling as much. When I do get to wrestle … most of the time it means more because of the set-up and the promo work and the preparation that we’ve done. It’s cool and it’s like a learning experience … 23 years in now and I’m still learning new stuff.”
