— In a follow-up to a recent post which suggested that Luke Gallows and Nia Jax were now a couple after Gallows tweeted that announcement, Gallows has now tweeted that they have broken up which seems to suggest that it was all some big joke to begin with:
The rigors of high profile relationships are grueling, it’s with a heavy heart that I have to announce that @NiaJaxWWE & I have mutually decided to part ways. Thank you for respecting our privacy during these trying times. #onedayrelationship #sadday

— PWInsider reports that Erick Rowan suffered an arm injury during his match against The New Day at SummerSlam on Sunday and was not at the live event in Atlantic City on Monday. The “word going around” is that it is a bicep injury but he is getting evaluated by doctors. WWE has already announced a no-DQ match between the Bludgeon Brothers and The New Day for tonight’s Smackdown, so it will be interesting to see how that plays out.
— WWE officially announced an attendance of 16,169 for Sunday’s SummerSlam PPV at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. Last year’s show at the same venue was billed at 16,128 and the two years before that it was 15,974 and 15,702 which isn’t really a surprise that WWE announces a new record in each successive year.
