Tuesday News Update
- Liv Morgan will be on The Bump this Wednesday. WWE on YouTube also has a Money in the Bank diary.
- Cameron Grimes spoke to Sports Illustrated ahead of tonight’s Great American Bash edition of NXT. “This could be the biggest of my entire career,” he said. “And it isn’t just about me. The whole show is going to be outstanding. There is the men’s tag title match, the women’s tag title match, the North American title match. If you’re a wrestling fan, it would be silly to not watch. And I can only hope we’ll see a title celebration at the end of the night.”
- Grimes also talked to PWInsider about tonight’s match. “So I feel like this year for sure, the 2022, I feel like every moment has been my biggest moment. I feel like every week that goes by it's just another big opportunity for me. I said at the beginning of the year, I wanted to be a champion. I did that and I lost that. So now I have to be a champion again. I have to keep that going. So that's just what I'm going to do. I'm going into The Great American Bash with no backup plan. I'm going to the Great American Bash with everything that I have in my back pocket. And most importantly, I'm going into the Great American Bash, like I told Bron, with my heart that isn't going to give up and you know, it's a good thing that he played offense because he said that he's going to keep spearing me, so I think I can handle an offensive player, not a defensive player.”
