- Malakai Black broke down his AEW persona's inspiration while speaking with CBS Sports' Shakiel Mahjouri.

"I'm big into tattoo culture. I'm very much into the alternative music scene. It's predominately black metal and hardcore," Black told CBS Sports. "I have a fascination with the occult because I grew up in a certain household that had some very disturbing and interesting things. So I know how to live these cult-like characters because I grew up with it. I understand this. This is part of myself that I can put into these characters. Within a year, two years from that it started taking off. It has to contain an essence of yourself.

"I do think that when you grow up, you start to understand a lot more of yourself. Especially your past traumas. You start to acknowledge and you start to overcome. And when you overcome them, you can draw from them. You know they don't fight against you. They work with you ... The older you get, the more you understand yourself."

- On the latest episode of The Bro Show from Sportskeeda, DDP picked MJF and Britt Baker as AEW wrestlers who would do well in WWE:

""My top pick, no matter what, is MJF, because he's been my boy all the way through, I just watched that promo again with him and [CM] Punk, the 19-minute promo, on both sides - Punk and him, it was money. MJF is one of the only true heels in the business."

"My number two pick would be Britt Baker because that girl is over. And she works her a** off, and when she did the whole bloodbath deal, she took it to a different level. The [third] guy I bring in is Cody Rhodes, who can talk as good or better than anybody in the business and I think he would be monster money there now. He proved what he had to prove. He did it in a big way, and it would be brilliant of them to sign MJF, Britt [Baker], and him. "
