– Tucker Knight, who was defeated by Baron Corbin on this week’s episode of WWE NXT, came out to former WWE Diva Tori’s theme song for the contest.
– During his recent appearance on The Steve Austin Show – Unleashed!, Big Show offered his thoughts on the differences between NXT and general WWE audience.
“They’re a more hip crowd. We have a lot of families,” he said. “We have dads come in with six or seven kids, the nephews and the cousins and the sons and daughters. So we have a lot of little kids there, which is fantastic because I love them being a part of the product and I love putting on shows for them. But the fire and the energy we used to get in the Attitude Era when we were working towards that 18 to 35 crowd, that was a different energy crowd. A lot of these crowds that we have now are the younger kids because they’re so excited to be there. Now, the NXT crowd isn’t pulling the younger kids.”
– After WWE announced this week that more than 155 hours of Raw from 2002 and 2003 are now available on the WWE Network, episodes of SmackDown from 2000 and 2001 are being added to the service. The following episodes were added this week: 6/8/2000, 8/17/2000, 10/26/2000, 6/7/2001, 8/23/2001, 11/15/2001.
