- Shane "Swerve" Strickland lost the MLW Heavyweight Championship to Low Ki a couple of weeks ago on MLW: Fusion, but he has picked up another title. Strickland is the new EVOLVE Champion after defeating Matt Riddle at EVOLVE 108. Riddle dropping his title is curious considering the recent rise in rumors saying the former UFC fighter is WWE bound.

- Johnny Gargano recently made a 5-year-old fan's birthday so much more memorable when he sent a video message to a young man named Nolie. The birthday boy's mother later said she's played the video ten times already for Nolie and he sent a special thank you back to Johnny Wrestling. Gargano later wrote: "If there's a 'favorite part of my job'... it's this. Getting the unique opportunity to put smiles on faces, and help others feel the same way I did as a small child who just loved pro wrestling."

If there's a "favorite part of my job".. it's this. Getting the unique opportunity to put smiles on faces, and help others feel the same way I did as a small child who just loved pro wrestling.
Happy Birthday Nolie! https://t.co/2w5MeVeVld
