ORTON INVADES NXT TONIGHT, WWE LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD DIVAS, BIG NEWS THAT WILL CHANGE THE FACE OF WWE RATINGS AND MUCH MORE

WWE is taping NXT tonight at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. Randy Orton and Divas champion Kaitlyn are scheduled to appear.

WWE will be holding auditions for potential new Divas next week in California. As we noted a few months back, the company was soliciting submissions from talent managers and agencies for potential new women and have set up meetings for next week.

The first episode of Chris Jericho's new Robot Combat series is now streaming on SyFy's Roku channel.
