Below are some top WWE news stories of the day:

• WWE held an employee meeting at Stamford on Tuesday, after over 100 employees were released last week due to the merger with UFC.

In this meeting, Vince McMahon stated that WWE had plateaued and the deal with Endeavor to form TKO Group Holdings needed to be done to get to the next level.

According to Fightful Select, these comments from Vince led many within the company to reaffirm their belief that Vince did this deal so he could return to WWE.

McMahon is believed to hold veto power in his new role as Executive Chairman with TKO Group Holdings, which could be used in decision making for the UFC. Dana White still books the entire fighting promotion as the UFC CEO.

• Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley missed this week’s episode of RAW. Storyline wise, Michael Cole announced that Ripley suffered bruised ribs at the hands of the returning Nia Jax last week and that’s why she wasn’t on the show.

In reality, Rhea is in Australia, visiting her family. She was also spotted at a football league game with her fiancé, AEW wrestler Buddy Matthews.

• Below is the updated card for the NXT No Mercy 2023 premium live event, which will take place on September 30th:
