Here is your fight size update for July 23, 2021:
- Per a report from Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE is interested in rehiring Braun Strowman. he was part of the cuts on Wednesday, June 2, 2021. Reportedly, there is interest in keeping him away from AEW.
- Speaking with Scott Fishman of TV Insider, Carmella revealed she would like her own sitcom one day.
"To be on a sitcom would be an ultimate goal. If Truth and I could have our own sitcom, are you kidding me? That would be awesome. Ultimately, I have no idea what the future holds. I just want to keep pushing and working hard and being a positive role model for women. Whether it’s writing a book, telling women to follow their dreams, and embracing their inner boss—I want to be the best version of myself."
- Speaking with Bleacher Report, Big E revealed that he is excited to sit back and wait for the right opportunity to cash in his WWE Money in the Bank briefcase.
"We're in a bit of a wait-and-see approach," he said. "This is all extremely new, but both Roman and Bobby [Lashley] make a lot of sense. I've been talking about Roman for a long time, the interactions with Paul [Heyman]. He is the guy. If you ask me, and people may have different opinions about who sits atop the heap of our industry across all brands and across all companies, it's Roman. He's hit a stride that is very, very rare to see. He's been killing it. That makes a ton of sense.
"Obviously, with the history with Kofi and Woods recently and Bobby, also having the brief interaction at the Royal Rumble with Lashley, that's an option, to. I'll sit and think, plot and strategize, but I think both are great champions, and both are great options for me."
