Here is your fight size update for Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
- Speaking on the A&E Biography covering the life of Roddy Piper, Vince McMahon explained what he looks for personally in a heel character.
“When you look for attributes of a bad guy, you have to be fearless. You have to have the gift of gab. You have to be able to say anything that you want, even though you know it's going to be controversial. You have to have a certain attitude about you. Roddy had all of that and more,” said Vince McMahon.

“When I’m able to win back my WWE title we’ll fly back home, get an open-top bus at the top of Scotland. I’m going to make my way down Scotland, [and have a] big celebration all the way down into England. Get to Fury’s house, set ourselves up a little match.
“It’s going to happen. The thing is he has a genuine love for wrestling and he’s such an entertainer, he gets it. I know we could do some fun business together. Probably some kind of Battle of Britain would be the theme.”

- Speaking with Sportskeeda, Mercedes Martinez revealed she is looking to validate her 20-year career.
"Winning that NXT Women's Title just validates everything that I've worked hard for," Mercedes Martinez said. "You know, I've won championships all around the world, you know, on the independent scene, but that does has nothing compared to doing it on one of the biggest stages that I could ever dream of. Getting a NXT contract, a WWE contract was the highlight of my career. It was something that I didn't think I was ever going to get. And here I am proving everybody wrong and proving my worth. And just winning that title is going to mean everything in my career and put 20 years of my life on the line, just for that validation to say, 'yes, I am one of the best that, and now I am the best in women's wrestling.'"

- Speaking with Chris Van Vliet, Jim Johnston said the following about a potential induction into the WWE Hall of Fame for him:
"I think if they haven't already, they're not going to. It's one of those pesky things where you don't want to be petty about it. But it's like you guys did fire me, but you want me to come back and put me over by doing the Hall of Fame. Would it be an honor? Sure. But at the same time, it would be uncomfortable. There are people there that I don't want to see and don't want to shake their hand. But it's not a big aspect of my life now. But one of the positive things after doing WWE for so long as you get to write whatever you want."
