– Regarding Hideo Itami getting the spot in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMania 31, that was a late decision as Finn Balor or Adrian Neville were scheduled to be in the match. Once the Battle Royal was moved to the Kickoff Ore-show, the decision was made to use Itami as a way to tie into Tatsumi Fujinami’s Hall of Fame induction as there were a lot of Japanese media in town.
– As noted, Vince McMahon attended his first WWE NXT live event in San Jose this past Friday night. Vince was said to be very high on Charlotte after seeing her match with NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks. There had been talk of bringing Charlotte to the main roster but that talk multiplied once Vince saw her work. Vince also requested that Charlotte be featured more in the new Tapout commercials.
Vince also reportedly loved the work that Banks did at the NXT live event on Friday.
