- Brock Lesnar beat Randy Orton in a rematch of their bout at SummerSlam at last night’s WWE live event in Chicago, Illinois.

Video highlights are also available here and here as well as embedded above.

- There is speculation that Devon is set to start with WWE soon as an agent. Bubba Ray could be back sooner than later as well but as an on-screen performer. Their departure was something we had to dig for information on but have the complete story available at this link.

- Booker T recently hosted Randy Orton on his podcast where he gave him a chance to explain his tweets against protests during the playing of the national anthem, specifically referring to San Fransisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Orton said that he would rather hear what Colin has to say. He respects the issues but disagrees with kneeling when the national anthem is played or the pledge of allegiance is done.

- Scott Hall recently expressed interest in working for WWE as a coach/trainer for talent in NXT. However, he also understands that his recent relapse with alcohol will probably serve as a deterrent as he has to prove that he can remain sober.

- Roy Nelson got into a post-fight altercation with referee John McCarthy after knocking out Antonio Silva at UFC Fight Night 95 on Saturday night. For those that missed it, Nelson went over and gave McCarthy a kick in the rear-end and flipped him off due to the late stoppage of the fight. Video footage is available at this link. The UFC doesn’t plan to punish Nelson over the incident and McCarthy will have to file a complaint if he wants any disciplinary action to occur.

- Mark Henry worked his first match since August 1, 2016 at last night’s WWE live event in Chicago, Illinois where he beat Epico. We’ll have complete results online shortly.
