– We noted before that Sting’s promo on Monday’s RAW where his voice altered was inspired by 1990’s gimmick The Black Scorpion, which was played by several wrestlers and feuded with Sting. There was a lot of “head scratching” backstage at RAW over why they would alter his voice. One source commented that they didn’t know what the issue was with getting Sting in the ring with a live mic, but “it is what it is.”
– We’re hearing WWE will be making some pretty significant indie talent signings for NXT some time after the WrestleMania 31 Revenge Tour is over.
– Konnor and Viktor of The Ascension are the latest NXT stars that have failed to transition to WWE’s main roster successfully. Their stock has fallen a lot lately, as is clear by how they’ve been booked on WWE TV since losing to The Prime Time Players on RAW a few weeks back. Word is that their push is “dead” and they’re not expected for the WWE Tag Team Title match at WrestleMania 31.
