• Another Former WWE Wrestler Becomes Double Champion In Impact Wrestling
As we noted before, former WWE wrestler Evan Bourne (now known as Matt Sydal) became a double champion in Impact Wrestling at the recent TV tapings when he defeated Taiji Ishimori to win the X Division Championship. He was already the Impact Grand Champion heading into the match.
However, that didn’t last long as he faced Impact Global Champion Austin Aries in a “Title vs. Title” match and lost the Impact Grand Title.
Now former WWE wrestler Austin Aries is a double champion in Impact Wrestling – Impact Global Champion & Impact Grand Champion.

• Ronda Rousey Has Reportedly Signed With WWE
While this hasn’t been officially announced yet, the WrestleVotes Twitter account (that broke the story of Neville quitting WWE) is reporting that the deal between WWE & former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey has been signed.
Not that it will shock anyone, but I've heard from multiple sources the Ronda Rousey deal is done. Was close for months, it's now compete. It's only a matter of time before we see her on TV.

WWE officials have discussed two plans for Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 34 – either face Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, or face the undefeated Asuka for the Raw Women’s Championship (Asuka will have to win the Title if WWE decides to go this route).
