While we may now identify “Glorious” solely with NXT’s Bobby Roode, the music was first slated for Shinsuke Nakamura. Luckily, Nakamura was heavily involved in the creation of his WWE theme, and he nixed the idea of the choir singing him to the ring. I am so grateful for this, because I absolutely adore Shinsuke and I absolutely loathe “Glorious.”
The Hardys will not be on the RAW brand live events this weekend. Matt and Jeff are finishing up their independent bookings over the next few weeks, and this weekend, Matt Hardy will be facing Tommy Dreamer at Friday’s House of Hardcore event in Metuchen, NJ. At Saturday’s House of Hardcore event in Philadelphia, PA, The Hardys will team up to face Dreamer and Bully Ray.
Mick Foley underwent successful hip replacement surgery earlier this week. He has been tweeting updates from his hospital bed over the past two days, and seems to be in high spirits.
Thanks for all the well-wishes, kind words and prayers for my hip surgery. Spirits are high after a visit from Buddy the Elf in recovery! 🎄 pic.twitter.com/xHeiUZs5Th

No word yet on whether Foley will return to WWE television when he’s recovered from his surgery.
And, our favorite demon troll has taken to social media again this week to tease us with a possible Bullet Club reunion. Finn Bálor posted the following picture on his Instagram page earlier, and of course, it got tongues wagging immediately.
I wouldn’t be against these three aligning once more. Gallows and Anderson continue to flounder on RAW and having Bálor have some semblance of a faction around him would work nicely. Will it ever happen in WWE? More than likely not.
