We already know what the plans are for the newly vacant championship. The title will be decided in a first-ever four-way Iron Man match featuring Adam Cole, Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa & Finn Balor. This is an ambitious match idea, so I’m excited to see it play out.
Who is the true IRON MAN of #WWENXT?

Bray Wyatt Sends Message To Goldberg
Could the feud between The Fiend and Goldberg be continuing? Bray Wyatt sent a tweet out on Wednesday that shows their work together might not be done. Wyatt lost to Goldberg in Saudi Arabia, losing the Universal Championship in the process. Goldberg would then go on to lose the title to Braun Strowman at Wrestlemania. Personally, another Goldberg match holds nothing for me. Let’s hope this is just more internet flexing.
Dearest @Goldberg ,
Don’t worry old friend we fixed it.
Don’t listen to what they say, you and I know they’re wrong.
I forgive you!
But please, if you see the red walk away from it.

One for the Road:
I’ve got some good news! Stu Bennett (a.k.a. Wade Barrett) returned to WWE at the NXT commentary desk. If you haven’t heard his commentary yet, he’s one of the best color guys in the business right now.
