- Ronda Rousey and Travis Browne have announced that they will be welcoming a baby girl to their family soon. WWE congratulated Ronda on this news. Ronda Rousey has not been seen since losing in the main event of WrestleMania 35.
"The Baddest Baby on the Planet" will be... a girl!

Congratulations to the happy couple!
“I was not a good limo driver—on my first pickup, I was three hours late,” the WWE superstar said recently on a video call in Los Angeles. Just out of high school and living in Massachusetts at the time, Cena had “never traveled” and was unfamiliar with the routes wanted by the client waiting at Boston Logan International Airport.
“I was just taking the wrong road over and over and over again. This was 1995, so there were no mobile phones, so I couldn’t call anybody and go, ‘Yo, I’m lost.’ I was just late.”
- Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Samoa Joe compared the rivalry between Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly to the rivalry he had with CM Punk in Ring of Honor and the rivalry between Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.
“Me and Punk is a great analogy, but me and AJ have also been those eternal enemies,” Joe says. “It’s kind of like Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens, a real contentious relationship and a transcendent rivalry. It’s gone past the bounds of just NXT. This dates back years and years, and they’re both at the top of their game.
“Kyle O’Reilly is one of the more innovative individuals I’ve seen. He’s been able to adapt a lot of his training in martial arts and bring it to pro wrestling in really smart, brilliant ways. Adam Cole just delivers. You can’t ask much more than that. I’m looking forward to this matchup. It’s gone down a few times, and every time it has, it’s been fantastic. This one will be no different.”

- Speaking with The Undefeated, Nyla Rose revealed that when she medically transition almost a decade ago, she assumed it would be the end of her career:
“I literally expected it to be the end of my career,” Rose said. “I was completely wrong about it, but that was my mindset. I went into it knowing for a fact, ‘I had fun, I did the wrestling thing, this is it, it’s over. I’m gonna put it out there, maybe somebody somewhere might want to hire me, who knows?’ But I’m willing to admit when I’m wrong and I was definitely wrong about that.”
- Speaking with Denise Salcedo for the Sportster, Tommaso Ciampa opened up about his parents with Timothy Thatcher heading into the Great American Bash next week:
In this scenario I am happy that it turned out to be what it did. It was a tough year, year and a half for me just professionally. I was in two Takeovers in a year, and it was tough to stomach where you're like 'damn, well what do I gotta do?' because I know the work ethic I have, I know what I am controlling and there's a lot of variables out of your control and you're just trying to figure out well ' what are we gonna do? what's gonna click?' I don't think if I sat down in a room a year ago I would have been like 'oh yeah Timmy and I are gonna do this thing and it's gonna click and it's gonna be great' It fell on our lap. There's the Dusty Cup opening, we get thrown together and I just remember that match ending and going like "oh we've got some chemistry here, this is good '' and we're like minded fellas. We get along good and like you said, it's really grown recently, it's a good chemistry we got whether it's in the ring or even when we're doing backstage promos segments and such, we feed off each other really well, there's good energy there, there's good understanding there. Timmy is a star, and it's not like nobody is carrying anybody around, it's just two dudes who got aligned at the right time and it's working and now at Great American Bash-- I've never even stepped in a ring with them [MSK] and there definitely talented, they wouldn't be NXT Tag Team Champions if they weren't. I don't think they have a chance in hell to beat us, it's not even a knock on them, I don't think anybody could beat us right now. It's just the truth. I am working in a place right now that I haven't been in before as far as just physically and mentally. I am as sharp as I've ever been. Timmy is hungry, he's never won gold in NXT, he's real hungry, he's quiet hungry, he doesn't complain, he sits by himself a lot, but that boy is hungry. That Great American Bash that is the most eyes that will have ever been on us as a tag team. It's a big stage, it's a big match and if I was a betting man, which I am not but if I was, I'd bet it all on us.
