First-ever WWE Cruiserweight Champion TJP is on an unstoppable quest for more competition on 205 Live. This week, the former Cruiserweight Champion wrestled a local wrestler and once again made it clear that he is on the verge of a brand switch if he does not get the respect he feels he deserves from General Manager Drake Maverick. TJP hinted moving to Monday Night RAW or SmackDown Live and added that he could enter negotiations with NXT General Manager, William Regal.

 

Things between WWE and Dave “The Animal” Bautista might be smoothening as videos of Superstar Dolph Ziggler interviewing the cast of “Hotel Artemis” have been posted by WWE on its social media accounts. Although the interview doesn’t consist of much wrestling, it was solely aimed for the purpose of promoting Batista’s latest film. This might be a small step towards working out a deal for a match at WrestleMania. Batista had earlier hinted at a possible retirement if he doesn’t get one final run with WWE by next year. The Animal aims for a WrestleMania match against The Game, Triple H.

 

WWE currently has over 110 main roster talent and the roster is bigger than ever. Such a huge roster brings with it some latent benefits as well as backdraws. The Revival, one of the best tag teams in NXT history, seems to be lost in the giant roster as they haven’t had much exposure or push ever since they were called-up from NXT. Following this week’s Monday Night RAW, The Revival, who hadn’t accomplished much since their main roster debut in April, 2017, were asked about their latest defeat in the Tag Team Battle Royal to determine the #1 Contender for the RAW Tag Team Championships.

Revival’s Scott Dawson took to Twitter to demand an opportunity and linked to the promo. Breezango’s Tyler Breeze chimed in and asked Dawson to “get in line”.

 

Next week’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live will feature a Summit comprising of the Women’s Money In The Bank competitors, namely, Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, Alexa Bliss, Ember Moon, Naomi, Natalya and Lana. Also, Andrade “The Cien” Almas will square off against Sin Cara in singles action.
