Bianca Belair: 'I Want To Beat All Of The Four Hoursewomen And Prove I Am The EST Of WWE'

- Fightful.com has learned that Alberto El Patron's deal with Impact Wrestling doesn't involve a contract. Instead they have what he calls a "gentleman's agreement." Fightful will have more on this soon.

- WWE is interested in the OMEGA library, and may have acquired it as part of the Hardy negotiations.

- Speaking of the Hardy's, their new championships were made by Top Rope Belts, which also produced the OMEGA Championships.

- EC3's Impact Wrestling contract extends through Summer 2018.

- As recently revealed and reported by Fightful's Carlos Toro, Sexy Star hasn't retired from wrestling as many have said. 

- Fightful reporter Brandon Howard took a look at Roman Reigns, and whether or not he's actually a needle mover within the WWE realm. 

- Brandon Howard also took a great look at WrestleMania business stats.

- Contrary to speculation from Alberto El Patron, WWE didn't leak Paige's private videos and photos. Unless they're in the business of also leaking photos from those working for Impact Wrestling.

- We're told Impact Wrestling is still seeking out partnerships to employ. 

- Those that we spoke to about the Hardys-Impact situation have Impact and Anthem looking unfavorably. There wasn't a single employee or wrestler we talked to that thought Impact deserved to retain rights to the name or gimmick.
