- NXT’s Lana and Alexander Rusev made their SmackDown debuts in a promo on Friday’s show. Rusev spoke in Bulgarian and Lana said, “Rusev hits. Rusev crush!” That appears to be their new catchphrase as it was re-tweeted by WWE. Rusev said that the Rusev Legacy begins now.

- WWE.com has posted video of JBL making the announcement on “NXT: Arrival,” which will air live on the WWE Network on February 27th. WWE is referring to it as the first-ever NXT pay-per-view. In an update from earlier, Sheamus and The New Age Outlaws will not be appearing at Arrival but will be at the tapings the next night. However, Kevin Nash as Diesel will be appearing at Arrival with Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, John Cena and Paul Heyman.

Regarding the $45 two-day pass for Arrival and the tapings the next night, it comes with tickets to a VIP meet & greet plus a gift bag with merchandise.
