• Intergender Lumberjack Match On Tonight’s SmackDown Live

WWE announced the following:

Asuka and James Ellsworth square off in a Lumberjack Match

“Last Tuesday, Asuka and James Ellsworth competed in a battle of the sexes that ended in dubious fashion after Ellsworth led Asuka on a wild goose chase, culminating in a double count-out and The Empress of Tomorrow getting blindsided by Carmella.

SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige sought to give the WWE Universe a decisive end to the match, so she immediately scheduled a rematch for tonight. This time, there will be nowhere for Ellsworth to run, as the SmackDown Women’s division will be surrounding the ring for a Lumberjack Match. Ellsworth is oozing confidence ahead of this battle, looking past The Empress of Tomorrow and challenging other famous female sports icons, including tennis star Serena Williams, auto racing’s Danica Patrick and the WNBA’s Diana Taurasi:

How will Ellsworth fare when he has no choice but to battle Asuka?”

• Update On How Brock Lesnar Was Hidden At UFC 226

Current WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar returned to the UFC this past Saturday night at the UFC 226 PPV and will now receive a UFC Heavyweight Title shot against the new champion, Daniel Cormier.

According to PWInsider, Lesnar arrived in Las Vegas when the UFC 226 PPV was going on, but wasn’t brought into the building until about 30 seconds before he was shown coming down to the cageside area. This means Lesnar entered the building and went straight to the cageside area.

UFC did this to ensure that the news of Lesnar’s arrival (and return to the Octagon) didn’t leak out.
