– Last month at Hell in a Cell, Alberto Del Rio made an unannounced return to WWE with Zeb Colter as his manager and defeated John Cena to win the WWE United States Championship for the first time. The next night on Raw, Del Rio revealed that he and Colter had started their new country “MexAmerica” and unofficially renamed the United States Championship as the “MexAmerican Championship.” Konnan, who communicates with Del Rio, confirmed on MLW Radio this week that Vince McMahon is behind the “MexAmerica” storyline.
“I don’t know if I said it in the previous podcast but, that Zeb Colter/ADR gimmick? It’s (Vince’s) idea,” Konnan said.
– After unsuccessfully challenging Bayley for the NXT Women’s Championship last night on NXT, Eva Marie spoke to WWE.com. The 31-year-old said WWE never handed her anything, and that she’s earned it all.
– It was announced on last night’s episode of NXT that Samoa Joe will face Tommaso Ciampa on next week’s show. In an odd trivia note, both men have wrestled for WWE, TNA and Ring of Honor this year alone.
