WWE news and notes…
- We have some developmental releases to announce. WWE has cut ties with Jake Carter, Malik Omari and Luther Ward. Carter is the most notable as he’s the real-life son of Leon “Vader” White.
- CM Punk threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the Detroit Tigers game on Sunday prior to the pay-per-view from the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan. The game was actually mentioned on the pay-per-view broadcast but there was no mention of Punk being honored.
- Attendance was spotty at WWE Night of Champions with much of the upper deck of the Joe Louis Arena completely tarped off on the non-camera side.
