– As noted, Kana’s new WWE NXT ring name is Asuka. The name apparently comes from Lioness Asuka, who was one of the most popular Japanese women’s wrestlers ever. She retired in 2005 and was part of one of the most successful women’s tag teams of all time, The Crush Gals.

– Tickets for the October 7th WWE NXT Takeover event from Full Sail University went on sale after last night’s tapings and quickly sold out. As of this writing, the October 8th NXT TV tapings have just 7 General Admission seats left.

– JBL climbed another mountain this week – the 14,115-foot Pike’s Peak in Colorado. Below are photos:
