AJ Styles vs. Roman Reigns

- WWE Battleground should be very interesting with many workers not being on the same show afterwards with some feuds ending and some beginning. The current plan is for a convoluted finish to the WWE Championship match, with a second title being introduced. It's just going to be difficult doing a draft before the pay-per-view, however, that's the plan.

- We've been reporting for several weeks the plan for the 2016 WWE Draft was for John Cena and Roman Reigns to head up their respective brands. This may have changed as Vince McMahon is so high on AJ Styles and Seth Rollins, the dynamics are different, especially with the suspension to Reigns. Finn Balor is also going to get pushed to the moon when he debuts. It was the worst possible time for Reigns to fail a Wellness test as Vince was already starting to change his mind on him.

- There is a debate within WWE about possibly splitting up The New Day. While many think it would be a disaster, it would be Big E going out on his own if it were to happen.

- We have more information available on Ricochet, who is best friends with Apollo Crews and the real life boyfriend of Tessa Blanchard. Ricochet is headed to WWE after he finishes up his independent commitments throughout the summer and is scheduled to begin some time in the fall. There were a couple of things that kept this deal from getting done as he had a contract with Lucha Underground and he had some concern about being kept in NXT long-term. Ricochet is considered one of the most talented workers in the world and it's a big boost for WWE to land him. A deal has not been signed and may not be until later in the summer. However, barring a trainwreck, this is going to get done.
