By Mike Johnson on 2019-08-13 10:42:00

WWE has made it "official" that AJ Styles will defend the United States Championship against Braun Strowman next week.

The Natalya dislocated elbow is a worked injury.  She is not hurt and there is no MRI set for today.  It was just done to help set the stage for Sasha Banks' return last night.

The Banks return was actually picked up as a news story by The New York Post.

WWE will release their Roddy Piper Unreleased 3 DVD set on 8/27.  The set features:

The Legacy of The Hot Rod

One of the most infamous films starring Piper, Hell Comes To Frogtown, is being released on Blu-Ray for the first time ever on 8/27 as well. 

Promotional material for the release notes:

In a post-nuclear holocaust wasteland, Sam Hell ("Rowdy" Roddy Piper) is like most other survivors; a nomadic scavenger roaming the bombed out remnants of the world for food and survival gear. But Sam is also harboring a major secret that even he isn't aware of: he's the last fertile man on Earth. As unexpected pregnancies are discovered, the remnants of the government decide to capture him and, with the aid of scientist Spangle, fit him with a secure chastity belt to ensure his virility is used only when needed. After learning of a group of supposed virgins who are being held captive by frog-mutant savages, Sam is sent on a rescue mission to free the women and then, of course, impregnate them. Is he up for the job? You bet...

An 'only in the 80s' hybrid of post apocalyptic sci-fi weirdness, cynical humor, and horror touches, director Donald G. Jackson's HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN is every bit as crazy as its title implies. Co-starring Sandahl Bergman (Conan the Barbarian), Rory Calhoun (Angel), and featuring a supporting performance from Nicholas Worth (Don't Answer the Phone), Vinegar Syndrome presents HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN on Blu-ray in North America for the first time, in a brand new, 4k restoration.
