Sonjay Dutt and Chris "Abyss" Parks are being hired by WWE in backstage roles, not as performers.  What their roles will be has not been confirmed, but as Triple H said on yesterday's media call, WWE is in the process of hiring people to help fill out the UK Performance Center and obviously will be looking for additional roles within the NXT system.  There's been a push of late to bring in some new Producers within WWE as well.   Impact had to release each of them in order to take the positions and internally, the feeling was that there was no positive to forcing them to stay.

There's been a lot of talk about Andrade being turned babyface and put into six man unit with Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara.

Nikkie and Brie Bella are in New York City doing media rounds to promote Total Bellas.

Tickets for the Triple H & Stephanie McMahon meet and greet this weekend at the Royal Rumble AXXESS are $150 and can be purchased by clicking here.

Steven Fernandes reporting....WWE star Karl Anderson applied to trademark his name for wrestling and merchandise use on 1/18.  WWE are still in the process of trademarking his name. They began their application in April 2016 but it was abandoned in October 2018 as they did not respond to a USPTO action request in the required time frame. They applied to revive the application last month and it was accepted on 1/22. 

WWE NXT has a live event tonight in San Diego, CA at the Viejas Arena.  If anyone is attending, we are seeking live reports.

Tickets for the 3/15 return to Edmonton go on sale on 1/25.
