Backstage News on WWE and Ring of Honor, Sting and Undertaker SummerSlam Update, Takeover Success
– As noted, WWE has announced that wrestling legend Jushin “Thunder” Liger will be wrestling Tyler Breeze at the “Takeover: Brooklyn” event. This caused controversy as Liger and New Japan Pro Wrestling have ties to ROH and several top NJPW stars will also be wrestling in New York City that night at ROH’s Field of Honor event. F4Wonline.com notes that other significant moves are being made behind-the-scenes regarding NXT and ROH, ones that apparently do not involve NJPW. The moves should be made public soon.
– We noted yesterday that the WWE NXT “Takeover: Brooklyn” event set for SummerSlam weekend saw major success with the Ticketmaster pre-sale on Thursday. The event has already sold more tickets than the previous record for NXT, which was 4,700 for the WrestleMania 31 week live event in San Jose.
– Regarding reports of Sting and The Undertaker being scheduled for WWE SummerSlam, multiple sources are reporting that both of them will be wrestling matches.
