  • According to PW Insider, War Machine, Candice LaRae, and Ricochet are all expected to be announced as NXT hires this week.
  • Although he didn’t go into details on an actual injury, Dave Meltzer noted on his Twitter that Kairi Sane is “banged up” and that’s why she hasn’t been used by NXT of late.
