– As seen below, RAW Tag Team Champion Cesaro continues his Clash Royale gameplay for Xavier Woods’ “UpUpDownDown” YouTube channel. Cesaro also calls out The Tonight Show’s Jimmy Fallon after Fallon played the game on his show recently.
– No word yet on why The Hardys were not on last night’s RAW in Toronto but WWE had been teasing them in their official preview for the show. Jeff Hardy’s wife Beth tweeted and confirmed to a fan on Sunday that he would not be appearing this week. The Hardys did not work weekend WWE live events in Canada either. Matt Hardy tweeted the following on Monday after the arm injury to Scott Dawson was announced.
As noted, Dawson suffered a ruptured biceps tendon tear at one of the live events in Canada this weekend, likely Sunday’s show in London, Ontario, Canada as The Revival lost to RAW Tag Team Champions Cesaro and Sheamus. WWE noted that surgery is likely, which could have Dawson out of the ring for several months. WWE should have an update on Dawson’s status later this week.
