– For this past Monday’s RAW, WWE did get permission from UFC to use the clip of Ronda Rousey’s post-fight comments on Roddy Piper at Saturday’s UFC 190 event.
– It appears John Cena vs. Seth Rollins is scheduled to be a long-term feud as it’s booked as the main event for several WWE live events in September. Besides the “You Can’t See Knee” t-shirt that Rollins debuted last week, WWE will also be marketing other anti-Cena t-shirts for Rollins during the feud. On a related note, there is still no word on how their “Winner Takes All” match will end at SummerSlam but the possibility of one man holding both the United States Title and the WWE World Heavyweight Title has caused a lot of speculation within WWE and many believe that either straight-up outcome won’t make much sense.
