The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.
WWE NXT Results
The build to NXT TakeOver: XXX continues! This week’s NXT included another triple threat qualifier for the NXT North American Championship Ladder Match. It also featured Karrion Kross in action against Danny Burch. What other developments would the black and gold hold? Here are the results:
- Karrion Kross def. Danny Burch
- Drake Maverick vs Killian Dain goes to a no contest when Undisputed Era interfered
- Santos Escobar def. Tyler Breeze
- Mia Yim def. Indi Hartwell
- Bronson Reed def. Damian Priest
- Mercedes Martinez & Aliyah def. Kayden Carter & Kacy Catanzaro
- Cameron Grimes def. KUSHIDA & Velveteen Dream to earn a spot in the NXT North American Championship Ladder Match at TakeOver
That’s right, Velveteen Dream is back. We haven’t seen Dream since the NXT after TakeOver: In Your House. He’s been kept off television due to a car accident, but was also accused publicly of inappropriate conduct with a minor. Dream denied those accusations, and no public statement came from WWE on the matter.
Dream is now back and potentially heel. He beat down KUSHIDA after the match, so he may be going back to his heel persona.

Javier’s got your AEW Dynamite results again as always right here.
Jeff Cobb Signing With Major Promotion?
One of the biggest free agents in wrestling may be signing soon with a major promotion. Jeff Cobb spoke to WrestlingInc on their podcast and mentioned that he is a free agent and that a major company will announce his signing “when the time is right”. It’s up to us to speculate what company that may be. Waiting on a signing like this doesn’t seem like WWE’s style, and Impact would likely bring in talent as fast as possible. That leads me to believe it’s AEW, who Cobb has worked with before. Let’s see who gets the services of the very talented Cobb.
WWE Summerslam Location Update
The WrestleVotes Twitter account came with both good news and bad news on Wednesday:
Good news, Bad news:
SummerSlam will not take place in the PC.
However, no fans will be in attendance.
Source still unsure on exact location, as the northeast possibility is now said to be iffy at best.

It will be exciting to see what the location of Summerslam will be, and honestly it’s good news there won’t be fans. The status of the pandemic continues to not lend itself to fans in crowded spaces. Have a safe change of location, great, but we can still enjoy wrestling without fans for a little longer.
One for the Road:
Are you sold on WWE 2K Battlegrounds yet? If you aren’t, maybe Paul Heyman talking about the game features will do it.
