The top matches at the 1/25 WWE Royal Rumble will be the Rumble bout (which Roman Reigns has been announced for) and WWE World Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar vs. John Cena, which is being filled as their final confrontation.

The advertised dark match main event for Raw tonight in Detroit, Michigan is John Cena and Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins and Bray Wyatt. Thanks to Scott Random.

There is talk that Adrian Neville may be moving up to the main roster soon with a new gimmick.

Lana posted a photo of a “WWE European title belt” on social media before deleting it over the weekend, so we’ll see whether that was an foreshadowing of an angle for TV or her screwing with fans online soon enough.

On his Facebook page, Adam Pearce wrote, “Suffice it to say that working as a producer on WWE/NXT Takeover: [R]Evolution is one of the most incredible experiences of my professional life. I am grateful to everyone that has supported and helped me along the way. Never let anyone tell you that you can't do something.”

WWE has released a new Brock Lesnar t-shirt.

There will be a Raw Pre-Show tonight on the WWE Network, but no special programming following Raw.

Former WCW World champion (I know, I know) David Arquette was interviewed by Sam Roberts discussing his reign in WCW, being blamed for destroying the company, the locker room's reaction to him, the bits he's done in WWE since then, and more at this link.

Daniel Bryan won a MLB Network Social Media Award for "Celebrity Fan of the Year."

The Huffington Post featured an interview with Hulk Hogan talking about gay performers in professional wrestling and how it’s always been accepted and how sports and the rest of the world are catching up at this link.

The wrestling-centric episode of “The Goldbergs” will repeat on Wednesday on ABC. This was the show dedicated to the memory of The Ultimate Warrior.

This week’s episode of the Monday Night War on the WWE Network will focus on “The Kliq.”

Set for this week’s episode of WWE NXT:

*Kevin Owens vs. Adrian Neville
*Beckly Lynch vs. Bayley.
