During the EVOLVE 137 event in Atlanta, NXT General Manager William Regal made an appearance after Shotzi Blackheart had a match. Regal was there to present her with her NXT Contract.

WWE Chartering Jet To Transport Talent and Crew From Crown Jewel Event

WWE has scheduled the Crown Jewel pay-per-view event in Saudi Arabia on October 31, a day before the fourth episode of SmackDown.

Because of tight schedule and travel time, there has been some speculation that this could lead to a limited crew on SmackDown on November 1 in Buffalo, New York. However, according to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that will not be the case.

According to them, the WWE will be hiring a chartered flight to bring members of the roster and the production crew who are involved with Crown Jewel back to the US for SmackDown. This is to make sure that the show goes on as planned during the next episode of the Blue Brand.

Triple H Says Ronda Rousey Will Return, Already Pitching Ideas

Before SmackDown, WWE held a press conference at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. While it was mostly about Crown Jewel and the two big matches planned for the event, MMA Junkie was able to talk to Triple H about the return of Ronda Rousey.

According to Triple H, Rousey will be returning to WWE, even if there is no specific timeline for when that will happen.

“This is family for her. She’s coming back. She has said it, she calls us all the time. I think the biggest tear for her right now is trying to do what she wants in her personal life and just missing this,” said Triple H.

“She talks to everybody all the time, she’s constantly with us, and she’s constantly pitching her return. So, if I had to guess, it would be sooner rather than later, but who knows?” he added.
