Cross, Lacey Evans, EC3, Heavy Machinery (Otis Dozovic and Tucker Knight), and Lars Sullivan are all set to debut soon on either Raw or SmackDown LIVE television. While Cross’ appearance tonight doesn’t necessarily confirm that she’s joining SmackDown LIVE, we reported that WWE plans on having her join the blue brand.
— Last Saturday marked the 20-year anniversary of Mick Foley winning the WWE Championship, beating The Rock (with help from “Stone Cold” Steve Austin). This was a taped show, so it was broadcast on January 4, 1999, (which is the date WWE officially recognizes as beginning the title run). WWE posted a video on Friday of Foley returning to the site of his title win — the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts — to reminisce.
