Let us take a look at the top 8 WWE News (including Brand Split) & Professional Wrestling stories of the hour:
8. Finn Balor vs. Shinsuke Nakamura Not Taking Place At NXT Takeover: Back To Brooklyn
It was originally expected that Finn Balor would face Shinsuke Nakamura at NXT Takeover: Back To Brooklyn during SummerSlam weekend, but that’s not the case.
It was announced on last night’s episode of NXT TV that Finn Balor & Shinsuke Nakamura would square off on the July 13th episode of NXT TV (which will be taped this Friday).

This will most likely be Balor’s final match in NXT and means he would not be pulling a double duty by working both the main roster and NXT.
7. Plans For Women’s Division During The WWE Brand Split
At first the word was that Vince McMahon wanted the Women’s Division to be exclusive to one brand only, most likely SmackDown, but that’s not the case anymore.
The Women wrestlers will most likely appear on both the brands.
