– There has been talk of having WWE NXT Superstar Candice LeRae work some upcoming SmackDown live events, according to PWInsider. There’s no word yet on if they plan on calling LeRae up but this could be a case of letting her get a feel for the main roster before the official call-up, something they’ve done in the past with other NXT Superstars, including Nikki Cross.
LeRae participated in the women’s Royal Rumble Match back in January, entering the match at #17 and later being eliminated by Ruby Riott, the 14th elimination of the match. LeRae, who signed for the black & yellow brand in January 2018, is active in the NXT women’s division and often appears in angles with her husband, NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano.
– WWE is expected to start announcing names for the 2019 WWE Hall of Fame Class after Sunday’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view, according to PWInsider. The headliner could be announced as soon as Monday’s post-Chamber RAW episode. WWE usually has a few inductees announced by now.
The 2019 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will take place on Friday, April 5 from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn during WrestleMania 35 Week. It was recently reported that The Hart Foundation (Jim Neidhart posthumously, current Hall of Famers Bret Hart and Jimmy Hart) will be inducted as a three-man group this year.
– New WWE RAW Tag Team Champion Scott Dawson took to Twitter today and said The Revival is changing things from the inside, out.
Dawson wrote, “We’re changing it from the inside, out. Here’s to two best friends’ life long dream. Here’s to the people that wrote us off. Here’s to Tag Teams around the globe. Here’s to the sport of PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING.”
