Massive Weekend For Brock Lesnar, Changes To UFC 200 Main Event, Major WWE Roster Moves, Much More

Brock Lesnar

- There is a lot going on in the world today so I want to open on a personal note. With the two police killings this week, coupled with the five police deaths last night in Dallas I wanted to share a statement I made on social media. Here it is in its entirety - Where do I fit in? I support the Black Lives Matter movement and I also support the good police that serve and protect. I yearn for peace and beg for an end to gun violence. I reject making this a political argument but I also don't want to undermine the Black Lives Matter movement with an all lives matter hashtag. I believe in love and equality, they're central to my being. Why can't we all just agree to love one another just as we are?

- It's Friday, which means we are on the eve to UFC 200 and Brock Lesnar's return to UFC. Brock was all business when he weighed in, refusing to pose or show any emotion. You can see it at this link. Hunt remains a favorite in the fight. We'll be covering Brock's fight against Mark Hunt tomorrow night exclusively here at Make sure to join us.

- Daniel Cormier has a new opponent for tomorrow night as he'll fight former middleweight champion Anderson Silva in a three-round, non-title light heavyweight fight. Silva hasn't trained in a few months but feels good enough to fight on Saturday. Miesha Tate vs. Amanda Nunes will serve as the UFC 200 main event, with Lesnar vs. Hunt co-headlining.

- We just posted an interesting backstage report on splits being considered for the 2016 WWE Draft. You're going to want to read this post as it also details a real-life WWE couple (people always seem to love the gossip). Check out that report at this link.

- Heath Slater returned to his home state of West Virginia this week to assist in flood relief efforts. He was quoted by local news station WVVA: “To me, it was just heartbreaking to see the pictures, and knowing that I had time off to come up here and try to put some smiles on kids faces and uplift some people…I think I can help too.”

- TNA is moving Impact Wrestling back to Thursday nights beginning on July 21, 2016. This is because Smackdown is moving to Tuesday nights. We have the details available at this link.

- Ryback underwent surgery again this week for ear, nose and throat issues. He's locked in a contract dispute with WWE and likely won't work for them again, barring a last minute resolution.

- WWE has absolutely taken notice of the success TNA had this week with Hardy vs. Hardy: The Final Deletion and will look to top it in The Wyatt Family's feud with The New Day. The groundwork was already laid Monday night on Raw when The Wyatts invited The New Day to their compound.

- Vince McMahon is very high up on AJ Styles and Seth Rollins. It's a big deal as the rosters will expand in a couple of weeks. He's not as high up on The Vaudevillains and Roman Reigns has seen better days.

- WWE has a weekend full of live events that you can check out at this link but it's safe to say all eyes will be on UFC tomorrow night as Brock Lesnar attempts to establish himself as one of the top draws of all time.
