– It was confirmed on WWE RAW that the winner of the Intercontinental Title contender’s tournament will get their shot at Big E at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view.
– As noted, DirecTV has decided to stop carrying WWE pay-per-view events. They are telling customers that they reserve the right to change that decision at any time. WWE is advising fans to buy the Network or order pay-per-view through their local cable providers. It appears DISH Network has also dropped WWE pay-per-views but that’s not confirmed.
– Tonight’s WWE Main Event and SmackDown tapings will take place from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Confirmed for Main Event is Cesaro vs. Big Show and set for SmackDown is Sheamus vs. Batista. Triple H is also advertised for tonight’s tapings but Randy Orton is not.
