- As seen below, WWE Music has released the new "Break Orbit 2017 Remix" theme song for WWE Cruiserweight Champion Neville:

- WWE has a new poll asking fans what was the most chaotic moment on this week's SmackDown. As of this writing, 54% went with Randy Orton refusing to face off with WWE Champion Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 33, 22% voted for Luke Harper attacking Wyatt before the Triple Threat main event, 19% voted for Baron Corbin Deep Sixing WWE Intercontinental Champion Dean Ambrose through electrical equipment and 5% voted for Mickie James feigning a shoulder injury to defeat Becky Lynch.

- Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar informed UFC officials that he is retiring from the sport of MMA this week. Lesnar last fought on July 9th, 2016 - a win over Mark Hunt at UFC 200 following a few years away from the sport. That win was later overturned and ruled a No Contest after Lesnar failed two drug tests, one less than a month before the fight and the other on the day of the fight. Lesnar was also suspended from fighting for one year and had to pay a fine of $250,000 to the Nevada Attorney General's office. ESPN reports that the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) confirmed it was also aware of Lesnar's retirement. Due to the retirement, Lesnar is no longer included in USADA's testing pool under the UFC's anti-doping program.

Lesnar retires from MMA with a record of 5-3-1. His 5 wins were over Min Soo Kim, Heath Herring, Randy Couture, Frank Mir and Shane Carwin. His 3 losses were to Mir, Cain Velasquez and Alistair Overeem. The 1 No Contest is the Hunt fight.
