• WWE has announced that Ivar (of The Viking Raiders) suffered an injury on this week’s NXT. Here’s what they posted:

“As a result of the heinous attack by Gallus at the end of NXT, Ivar has suffered an injury and will be out of action indefinitely.”

Ivar’s injury has also caused a change in the tournament to crown the No. 1 contender for the WWE Speed Championship:

“With Ivar sidelined due to injury, Apollo Crews has received a second chance in the No. 1 Contender’s Tournament and will face Tyler Bate in the Semifinals this Wednesday on WWE Speed!”

• On tonight’s SmackDown, the following two Queen of the Ring tournament matches will take place:

– WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Bianca Belair vs. Tiffany Stratton

– WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion Jade Cargill vs. Nia Jax

Tiffany posted a video of her slapping Jade on her Instagram story, but added the voiceover of “black b*tch” over it.

Stratton faced backlash from fans over this and had to delete the video.

According to PWInsider, there’s no backstage heat on Stratton:

“After speaking to several credible sources, we are told she’s absolutely not in trouble for anything internally within WWE and that Stratton’s been nothing but praised by management and other talents since moving to the main roster a few months back.

Despite the rumors, we are told that Stratton’s status within the company is unchanged and she remains on good footing, as she’s seen as someone with a very high upside by management.”
