Bray Wyatt Returns, NXT Star Appears at SD Show, Elias Album?
Tuesday, July 10, 2018
It was confirmed last week that Raw Superstar Bray Wyatt was injured in a car accident that kept him out of action for most of the week. Wyatt remained off of Raw last week and a few subsequent WWE shows due to several reported injuries that he received as a result of the incident. Fortunately, it now appears as though Wyatt has made a speedy recovery as he returned on Raw last night. Wyatt did not wrestle on the show, but he did help lay out both members of The B-Team. It now looks like Wyatt will still team up with "Woken" Matt Hardy to defend their Raw Tag Team Championships against Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view that will be airing on the WWE Network this Sunday.
When the Superstar Shakeup took place earlier this year, it was confirmed that former NXT Tag Team Champions SAnitY would be joining the Smackdown roster. Although Eric Young, Killian Dain, and Alexander Wolfe have now arrived on Tuesday nights, several fans were saddened to learn that Nikki Cross would be staying in NXT. Although Cross will still remain a NXT Superstar for the foreseeable future, Cross just made a surprise appearance during last night's Smackdown live event in Augusta, Maine. Cross teamed up with Becky Lynch to defeat The IIconics in a tag team match. No word on why Cross made this sudden appearance, but PWInsider has confirmed that Cross will not be appearing on the Smackdown show tonight.
WWE has made a couple of albums in the past that feature some of their music, but could a certain guitar playing WWE Superstar be receiving his very own studio album very soon? According to Raw Superstar Elias during last night's episode of Raw, he has just finished recording his first official music album. "The Drifter" did not mention any specifics relating to the album, but he did note that it is indeed real and will eventually be released for fans. Elias also teamed up with Baron Corbin to defeat Finn Balor and Bobby Roode on Raw last night as well. The news of a possible full album for Elias comes right after it was confirmed that he has a working relationship as a sponsor for Fender.
