- It appears the debut of Big E Langston on WWE TV had not been planned for more than 10 days as he was pushed as the top babyface at the December 6th NXT tapings where he defeated Seth Rollins for the NXT Title since Rollins had debuted on RAW with The Shield. Because of the way NXT is taped, Langston’s title win won’t air for several weeks but the official NXT website has featured him in a graphic since debuting earlier this week.
– As of last word, there is nothing on the table for Chris Jericho to return to WWE but both sides continue to negotiate. Jericho had been in talks to return for a WrestleMania 29 storyline.
– As PWMania.com previously reported, Tommy Dreamer suffered some swelling after his angle with Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns on Monday’s RAW. Dreamer had to visit the emergency room on Tuesday due to complications. He posted the updated photo on Thursday morning:
“Just went to the mirror & this is what I see F*CKING PISSED @theshieldWWE swelling is bad”
