— Showbuzz.com reports that the ratings for this week’s episodes of Raw and SmackDown Live are likely to be delayed due to Nielsen closing its national data center in the Tampa area on Sunday. The television ratings company sent its staff away on Sunday due to Hurricane Irma. As of this writing, it’s unknown how long the delay will be once they are back on the job.
— We noted earlier on the site that TJP vs. Rich Swann has already been confirmed for tonight’s episode of 205 Live on the WWE Network. WWE wrote the following on the build for the Enzo Amore – Neville feud that will play out on the show:
“Enzo Amore certainly made a splash when he arrived on WWE 205 Live, confronting WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville. Wasting no time getting into the fray, The Certified G earned several victories, despite the victorious circumstances being less than fair for the losing party. The Realest Guy in the Room is a master on the mic and knows how to enrage his opponents, but his crafty in-ring strategy may not be enough to dethrone The King of the Cruiserweights at WWE No Mercy.
Last night in Raw, Enzo was a guest on “Miz TV.” However, The Certified G picked the most inopportune time to make his way to the ring – during The Miz and Maryse’s surprise pregnancy announcement. Enzo didn’t do himself any favors by trading verbal jabs with The Miz, but in an effort to prove he’s ready for a championship fight, The Realest Guy in the Room challenged the Intercontinental Champion.
Relying on his swiftness and gift of gab, Enzo tried to mount an effective offense against the new dad-to-be, but asking if Miz was really the father to Maryse’s child was a bridge too far. Enzo won the match by disqualification, but he paid the price as The Miz and The Miztourage had their way with him.
After the match, Enzo was confronted by WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville, who simply laughed at his WWE No Mercy challenger. Can The Certified G find a winning strategy before WWE No Mercy, or will he swiftly bow before the king?”
