- WWE issued an e-mail blast this afternoon to promote Roman Reigns' appearance on tonight's RAW from Cincinnati. As we've noted, the storyline began when Reigns announced that he would be opening tonight's RAW to handle some unfinished business. WWE then announced that the SmackDown Superstar would not be appearing, but Reigns insisted he will be there to open the show. WWE is pushing the fact that Reigns is "defying management" by appearing. Cathy Kelley previews tonight's show in this new video.
- WWE stock was up 1.59% today, closing at $87.16 per share. Today's high was $87.40 and the low was $83.62.
- WWE and World X-treme Wrestling C4, the promotion owned by WWE Hall of Famer Afa, are partnering for a big benefit show to raise money for former WWE Tag Team Champion Samu Anoa'i, who is currently battling stage 4 liver cancer.
