WWE will present a thirty-minute WWE NXT "Takeover: The End" Kickoff pre-show at 7:30pm on Wednesday night. The panel will include Renee Young, Corey Graves and WWE Hall of Famer Lita.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently reported that WWE officials plan of having WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns anchoring Raw when the brand split goes into effect next month, with John Cena being the top star on SmackDown.
While nothing is official until it’s announced, advertising for the first live SmackDown on July 19 at the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts has Reigns taking on Seth Rollins. Other stars advertised for the event include Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles, Kevin Owens and WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte.
With the announcement of John Cena vs. AJ Styles at Money in the Bank, it’s interesting to note that Cena has won his last 4 bouts at the MITB event.
