– During last night’s WWE SmackDown tapings, Alberto Del Rio defeated Kalisto to win back the United States Championship, which he lost to Kalisto one night before on Raw.
It should be noted that WWE posted this spoiler on their website as well. Below is what WWE.com posted:
“Just one night after losing the United States Championship to Kalisto in a dramatic loss on Raw, Alberto Del Rio regained the coveted title from the masked luchador during Tuesday night’s SmackDown taping. The two Superstars, whose rivalry is rapidly evolving into one of WWE’s fiercest, battled to another climactic finish on Thursday’s hottest show — now on USA Network — but this time the underdog fell to The Essence of Excellence. The contest was not without it’s controversy, however, as The League of Nations factored into the outcome. Tune in to SmackDown this Thursday night at 8/7 C on USA Network to see how the United States Championship changed hands.”
– It was also announced during the SmackDown tapings that Dean Ambrose would defend the Intercontinental Title against Kevin Owens at Royal Rumble 2016 in a Last Man Standing match.
– Brock Lesnar has been added to many more WWE Live Events and TV Shows in March 2016, including a SmackDown taping.
– There was a rumor going on earlier today that Daniel Bryan would be released from WWE on January 18. Those rumors have now been confirmed to be false and Bryan won’t be released.
– During a recent interview with Scott Fishman, WWE Diva Paige noted that she suffered a concussion and that’s why she’s less active on WWE TV. Below is what she said:
“WWE has been absolutely great with the wellness program and wanting to make sure I’m back on my feet and completely healthy before getting back in the ring again. I’m losing my mind because I’m not at work right now, so it’s been a few straight weeks of not leaving the house. I do go to the PC and get back in the ring there and see the doctors to make sure I’m a good kid and taking as much ImPACT tests as I possibly can.
I hope to get back in the ring soon. It’s just a slight concussion. No big deal. Not a crazy one, but WWE is obviously very protective of their talent. I’m like, ‘I’m fine. I promise.’ They’re like, ‘No, we have to make sure you are 100 percent.’ They are like parents.”
