WWE Splitting The Dudleyz Up?, NXT “Takeover: Dallas” Running Late, Roman Reigns vs. Sheamus Stat

The Dudley Boyz

– The January 4th WWE RAW match with Roman Reigns defeating Sheamus for the WWE World Heavyweight Title was the first time a babyface won the WWE Title in a singles match on RAW since June 28th, 1999, when Steve Austin defeated The Undertaker. This is the same match that was the highest-rated in modern cable history with a 9.4 rating just for the match itself.

– As noted, WWE NXT “Takeover: Dallas” will take place from the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention center on April 1st. This is the same building that WrestleMania 32 Axxess takes place in and while the arena and the area where Axxess is are two different places, the start time for Takeover was delayed because of the times scheduled for Axxess. Takeover will now begin after Axxess ends. The Takeover event is currently scheduled to start at 9pm local time, which would be a 10pm EST start time on the WWE Network.

– There has been at least some talk within WWE about breaking up The Dudley Boyz and having Bubba Ray Dudley alter his gimmick to be more like his Bully Ray character that was a hit in TNA.
