-Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly, Bobby Fish, Lio Rush, and Donvoan Dijak all reported to the WWE Performance Center today, PWTorch has learned. O’Reilly, Fish, and Cole appeared at the end of NXT Takeover on Saturday night and beat down new NXT Champion Drew McIntyre. Donovan has also signed with WWE, after having announced an end of his indy bookings earlier this month.

-Roman Reigns told ESPN SportsCenter today that he would like to reunite with The Shield when the time is right. “Hopefully in the near future maybe. Not only to prolong my career maybe, because it does take it out of you running into those meatballs (his SummerSlam opponents of Samoa Joe, Brock Lesnar, and Braun Strowman) for 30 minutes at a time, but there’s just some kind of magic when the three of us get together and we’re just moving on all cylinders. It always seems to be a great time for the crowd.” READ MORE AT PWPODCASTS.COM
