- If you missed it in our live results, The New Day, Sheamus, Bo Dallas, Curtis Axel, Darren Young and Titus O'Neil missed Friday night’s WWE Raw live event in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada because of a snowstorm in the area. Adam Pearce operated as the lone producer for the show.
- Ric Flair was the guest picker on ESPN’s College GameDay on Saturday. The appearance is online at this link.
- Linda McMahon donated six million dollars in August and September to the Rebuilding America Now super PAC supporting Donald Trump. Linda’s contributions accounted for a third of the $18 million in donations the super PAC received last quarter. The Washington Post has more at this link.
- Alberto Del Rio tweeted the following text message that we’re assuming has to do with the state of Paige’s neck:

- We reported on October 11, 2016 here on WNW premium that WWE cleared Paige to return after her first Wellness policy suspension ended but her personal doctor recommended she undergo neck surgery. This resulted in backstage heat, which is why her suspension fueled a lot of mistrust amongst talent with the WWE Wellness Policy.
- Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) executive director Bob Bennett clarified that Conor McGregor was actually fined $75,000 for his role in the water bottle throwing at the UFC 202 press conference in August. The $150,000 number came from the $75,000 fine in addition to what NAC commissioner chairman Anthony Marnell determined would cost for McGregor to do an anti-bullying public service announcement for the commission (something McGregor agreed to do). McGregor was also given 50 hours of community service.
- UFC 205: McGregor vs. Alvarez has been cleared an extra hour on pay-per-view as the main card is scheduled from 10 PM ET to 2 AM ET, as opposed to the normal 1 AM ET. It’s going to be a massive show and we’ll have complete coverage here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com.
- Jeremy Borash stated on Friday’s episode of The Taz Show that morale in TNA Wrestling is great and that some of the stories online are completely fabricated. He referenced the WrestleZone.com report that claimed WWE had purchased the TNA tape library. While it’s most certainly a dysfunctional situation, we’ve doubted WWE has been actively involved in trying to acquire any of TNA. But again, Billy Corgan, who has been actively trying to acquire the company is suing them, so who really knows.
