– WWE posted this video looking at the origin of the Royal Rumble match and how it almost never happened in the first place:
– Mark Henry visited the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day today. He tweeted the following:
Today, I am visiting @NCRMuseum celebrating #MLK Day as a day of remembrance and a day of service! @WWECommunity #KingDay2017

– WWE NXT Superstar Tommy End and RAW Superstar Finn Balor appeared at Sunday’s PROGRESS Wrestling show in Birmingham, England. Balor appeared in a segment for fans and said while he can’t wrestle, he still wanted to compete. Balor then proposed a game of musical chairs with 4 fans. End, now using the name Aleister Black in NXT, actually wrestled a match and lost to Jimmy Havoc. End endorsed Havoc after the match and received a standing ovation from the crowd. This was before End’s loss to Neville at the WWE United Kingdom Title tournament on the same day.
Photos of End in the ring and video from the Balor segment can be seen below:
