- As noted, the WWE Network will be adding content from EVOLVE, PROGRESS Wrestling, wXw and Insane Championship Wrestling this coming Saturday. This will be the first round of non-WWE programming on the Network. Above is a trailer for the new content.
- WWE SmackDown Superstar Kofi Kingston turns 39 years old today while WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund turns 71, WWE NXT Superstar Johnny Gargano turns 33 and wrestling legend "Beautiful" Bobby Eaton turns 62.
- Karrion Kross took to Twitter this week and commented on his upcoming "Takeover: XXX" match with WWE NXT Champion Keith Lee. Kross said we will see him take what is meant to be his.
"Some will see the number 30. Others, the letter X or perhaps a 10. However, I see a row of crosses. And YOU will see me take what was meant to be mine from the very beginning of TIME. I was always meant to find my way here," Kross wrote, attaching the Takeover graphic to the tweet.
Kross signed with WWE earlier this year and made his in-ring debut on the May 6 NXT episode, defeating Leon Ruff. Since then he's defeated Liam Gray, Tommaso Ciampa, Bronson Reed, Dominik Dijakovic and Danny Burch.
Below is the full tweet from Kross:
Some will see the number 30.— ? Karrion Kross ? (@WWEKarrionKross) August 13, 2020
Others, the letter X or perhaps a 10.
I see a row of crosses.
And YOU will see me take what was meant to be mine from the very beginning of TIME.
I was always meant to find my way here.
