A new No.1 contender for the Women's Championship will be in place by this time next week. The only issue with their rivalry is Nakamura would need to win the United States Title from Owens.

For weeks, Mahal has been vocal about the people's disdain for the way he looks, the way he talks and his ethnicity which is why nobody really took him seriously up until recent. "There is no food in the world that gives you a better feeling of walking around with veins bulging out, six-pack abs".

AJ Styles, pictured at the Dove Awards Press Conference at Georgian Terrace Hotel on February 22, 2012 in Atlanta, could be the victor of the 2017 Money in the Bank Ladder Match. And Shinsuke Nakamura will hold the WWE Title sooner than later.
The Usos retaining the belts was a smart decision by WWE considering the New Day's impending arrival on the blue brand, but this showing by Breezango and the way that the crowd reacted to them is surely going to see them gain more television time, which is a good thing for all concerned.
