  • Ronda Rousey, in response to fans chanting 'We Want Wyatt' during Raw on Monday wrote on Twitter: “I’ve seen you same “fans” chanting #WeWantWyatt last night chanting “We want beach balls” over @WWEBrayWyatt performing.

  • In an interview with TalkSport, Shotzi said she meant no disrespect by a tweet she made in relation to Jericho's fall from the Blood and Guts cage earlier this year. “I meant no offence to Chris Jericho,” she said. “I thought, honestly, the match was great. But, you know what… like, take a joke, Take a joke, bud! [laughs]. It’s just a GIF. Laugh at it and move on. It’s live TV. Things happen, it’s pro wrestling. Don’t take life too seriously is all I have to say.”
  • Sports Illustrated has an article on Roderick Strong getting the chance to lead his own stable, the Diamond Mine. When asked about Adam Cole’s contract status, Strong said: “Adam’s going to do what Adam does. I have no idea what’s going to happen. I’m just focused on the areas of my life that I can control. For me, when I’m not working, I’m focused on my family. But of course, I wish the best for everybody.”

  • Here is the Road to Homecoming video hyping this week’s episode of AEW Dynamite, focusing on Malakai Black vs. Cody, Miro defending the TNT title against Lee Johnson, and the third Labour of Jericho match between Chris Jericho and Juventud Guerrera.
  • Jericho, in response to Vince McMahon’s recent comments on AEW, told Inside the Ropes that AEW in turn doesn’t see WWE as competition. “We’re not worried about what WWE is and we haven’t been since day one,” he said. “We weren’t worried about what NXT did. The whole time with the NXT vs. AEW war, which ended in a total abysmal failure for NXT, we never once had a TV screen watching what they were doing when we were doing it. We didn’t know what segments they were in. We didn’t know any of that. Now, the WWE way is you’re watching what the competition is doing when they were on, we didn’t do that. And it was no disrespect. We just didn’t care. We were too busy worrying about our own company and about our own stories, and about our own show to care what anybody else is doing. And that’s one of the reasons why we did so well is that we were concentrating on AEW, not anything else.”
  • Chris Hero spoke to Andrew Thompson of Post Wrestling about a potential return to the ring.”Brother, I am itching [to get back in the ring] all the time, you know? But I’m also patient enough to realize I’ve sat out this long, I’ve waited this long. I’m not gonna pull the trigger until it’s the perfect thing. I don’t know when that is but I’ll know it when it happens and man, I am thirsty. I just wanna get back at it. I see so many people I wanna work with, so many people I just wanna kick the sh*t out of. So many people that [are] previous opponents, new opponents, there’s so much I wanna get back at."
  • World Woman Pro Wrestling Diana announced that Kyoko Inoue has tested positive for COVID-19 and as a result, the Diana shows scheduled for August have been canceled.
  • Ryo Mizunami on Twitter wrote that she was able to leave the hospital yesterday after testing positive for COVID-19. “I was able to safely leave the hospital today.
