Alberto Del Rio

- Alberto Del Rio was given the clean win over Sami Zayn because they want to keep him looking strong heading into the brand extension. He has a massive downside and they’re going to need him once the rosters are divided.

- WWE wants to get UFC’sPaige VanZant to appear at SummerSlam as part of their talent share with the MMA organization. While on the topic, the odds makers are convinced Mark Hunt is going to beat Brock Lesnar. If Lesnar loses in UFC, it’s going to make UFC look good and letting him compete will likely be questioned by WWE. I have a feeling this is WWE's attempt to be "creative" in doing cross-promotion for SummerSlam but a loss would hamper Lesnar's ability to draw as the unstoppable beast.

- The Wyatt Family should be returning to television soon but definitely prior to the 2016 WWE Draft. The current word is Luke Harper will be separated from them.

- We’re expecting to hear about several new WWE signings over the next three weeks.

- WWE is leaning towards having two separate tag team champions for each brand in the upcoming Draft and feel there is sufficient tag team depth to do it.
