  • The Raw women's division is building to Bayley winning the title at WrestleMania and then feuding with a heel Sasha Banks for a title match at SummerSlam in Brooklyn.
  • The Observer notes Tye Dillinger's debut in the Royal Rumble didn't represent a main roster call up and was only done to placate fans.
