- After WWE Hell in a Cell went off the air, Charlotte went to the back, while Sasha Banks recovered before doing the same. Some people loved the way Charlotte vs. Sasha Banks went, others weren’t impressed. Unfortunately, I fall into the latter category. From the table not breaking on the finish to Charlotte not being put through one earlier in the match, there were a lot of miscues. Also, did anyone else find it odd there were a lot of duplicated spots from the Hell in a Cell match for the WWE Universal Championship that took place earlier in the night? I do feel like we witnessed history and a number of personalities put it over but I believe it was praised for the historic moment that it was and not for the match's overall quality.

- Randy Orton further teased aligning with The Wyatt Family at last night’s WWE live event in Allentown, PA. Bray Wyatt helped Orton beat Kane in a street fight and then Orton, Wyatt and Luke Harper posed together in the ring. Here are some photos. We have the backstage details behind the angle at this link.

- Bill Goldberg continues to state publicly what we’ve already reported in that he won’t commit to anything beyond Survivor Series. His noncommittal approach is being done to keep his options open but it’s also creating a huge issue regarding the booking of the match. We have more on that at this link.

- Speaking of Goldberg, he’s scheduled to appear on ESPN 2’s First Take on Tuesday to promote his match against Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series.

- John Cena and Nikki Bella always have funny Halloween costumes. This year, they dressed as each other. Check them out at this link.

- Ronda Rousey is scheduled to appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday to promote her upcoming fight against Amanda Nunes on Friday, December 30, 2016 at UFC 207.

- Eva Marie has been away from WWE filming the move “Inconceivable.” Filming has wrapped so she could return to WWE at any moment.

- Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle denied Billy Corgan’s request for a temporary injunction that would have given him control of TNA Wrestling, The Tennessean has confirmed. Corgan sought to gain the voting rights of Dixie Carter and other executives after loaning them money to continue operations. TNA will continue with the CEO of Aroluxe in charge. The Tennessean has complete details available at this link.
