With all the rumors last week of Shinsuke Nakamura being left off the NXT UK Tour poster meaning he was going to get called up the WWE main roster, it was surprising today to see that he has now been added to the tour. Nakamura will join other NXT stars when they return for the Download Festival this year. What this means for a potential call-up for Shins after WrestleMania is unknown at this time.

Goldberg’s current WWE run was supposed to end with his match against Brock Lesnar, but it’s being reported that the company is now open to bringing him in for more dates. They view his current run as very successful and are now considering bringing him back as a special attraction on major PPVs.

With WrestleMania looming, we’ve been wondering when WWE was going to actually start to push and build the match between Roman Reigns and The Undertaker. Turns out that will probably be tonight. The Undertaker is backstage at RAW in Brooklyn, and he’s expected to play a role in tonight’s main event between Reigns and Braun Strowman.

WWE Network is finally adding old episodes of NXT to its library. Episodes fro m 2012 and 2013 are being added today, and it’s expected that more will be added in the near future. The episodes added today include Roman Reigns’ NXT debut and Seth Rollins’ NXT Title win.

And, it was announced today that WWE will be returning to Australia later this year. The RAW brand will be touring the country in mid-September. The dates for the tour include:

September 14th in Melbourne at the Rod Laver Arena.
September 15th in Sydney at the Qudos Bank Arena.
September 16th in Brisbane at the Brisbane Entertainment Center.
