Here's your fight-size update for the morning of November 12, 2020:
- After Leon Ruff defeated Johnny Gargano to win the NXT North American Championship, he tried to put the belt around his waist, which dropped to the floor. Triple H went to Twitter to joke about the fact that WWE does not call their titles "belts," using Ruff's title dropping to his knees as an example. Triple H even changed his signature point on a picture with Ruff.
- Yuya Uemura commented on the recent news that he will be replacing the injured Yoshinobu Kanemaru in NJPW's Best Of The Super Juniors tournament. Below are his comments:
‘I know that my entry is as a result of Kanemaru’s injury, so I can’t say I’m delighted, but when I heard the news, I did get fired up.
Last year I was able to enter the Super Jr. Tag League, and unfortunately I ended on zero points. That was a real let down, and I know it was a disappointment for my partner Tiger Mask. I won’t ever live that down. In a league like this, everybody is trying to win. That’s what I learned last year in the tag league; I have to be aiming for the top the whole time.
I’ve been saying for months now that I want to make it into BoSJ, get results, and then maybe be able to challenge for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship. Well, I just about achieved the first goal. Now just to get results!’
