WHY EMMA WASN'T ON RAW, CHANGE TO SMACKDOWN LATE IN THE DAY, DDP HEADING TO NYCC AND MORE NEWS

By Mike Johnson on 2017-09-20 11:46:00

The original plan last night was for the bout for the women's championship to be a Triple Threat match, but late in the day, it was changed to a Four Way with Tamina.

There was a lot of talk backstage about how sparsely attended last night's Smackdown taping in Oakland, CA was, as well as the "That's too far" chant at Jinder Mahal after he cut a promo on Shinsuke Nakamura, referring to him as "Mr. Miyagi" and mocking the way Nakamura said the word "look".  As of this writing, WWE has not posted a clip of the Jinder segment on YouTube.

Emma did not appear on Raw as she stayed a few extra days in Australia to visit with family after the Raw events there over the weekend.

Our friends at Ringside Collectibles sent word that they now have Mattel's WWE Elite series 53 action figures featuring Alexa Bliss, Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens, Heath Slater, Big E and The Miz in stock for immediate shipping at www.RingsideCollectibles.com.

The great folks at Headlocked announced they would be hosting WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page every day at New York Comic Con next month.   For more details, visit www.HeadlockedComic.com.   Lita and Jerry Lawler will also be appearing at their booth.  Headlocked will have a panel on Saturday 10/7 at 12:30 PM with Jerry Lawler, illustrator Ed McGuiinness, Jill Thompson and more discussing the comic as well as the connection between pro wrestling and comic books.
