  • Jake Roberts will not be on Dynamite tonight, writing on Twitter: "Unfortunately, I won’t be able to appear tonight due to illness (not COVID). These days we all have to be on point. Looking forward to seeing everyone in two weeks.”
  • A GoFundMe has been set up for Robbie Eagles and his family, who are trying to get his father home to Australia from the Philippines following his passing. He wrote on Twitter: “I really want to start posting some positivity online, but the last few days have been incredibly testing. After having already paid $16k AUD on my Dad's medical bills, my family are still being asked an additional $20k AUD from the hospital he was in before passing. Without this outstanding balance paid, they will not release our Dad's death certificate and thus we can't even begin to look into how we can bring our Dad home to give him the send off he deserves and all of us, his kids want. We've tapped out our personal funds, x2 over. Everyone has been incredible with the generosity and I know it's the worst time of the year to ask but if there is anyone able to donate, even a dollar or two, it'll help us reach this goal.”
  • Serena Deeb noted on The Hashtag Show that NWA may be resuming shows at the start of next year. “NWA is probably starting back up again with some tapings in January or early next year,” she said (h/t Fightful). My intention as champion is to defend it all over the world. I would love to be a platform to showcase other women. The possibilities are endless.”
