– All seems fine with Seth Rollins after he suffered an unexpected injury in the closing segment of RAW. After The Shield returned, they were attacked by most of the RAW heels. One spot saw Seth Rollins lunged into the police van and he cut his arm as one of the windows broke.
Rollins appeared at Friday’s live event from Alabama alongside fellow Shield members Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose. He should be ready to go for Monday’s RAW and next week’s Hell in a Cell.
– At Takeover Brooklyn IV, Matt Riddle was spotted in the crowd and that was WWE’s official way of confirming that the former UFC fighter signed with the promotion. Before entering the pro wrestling world, Riddle was finding success in MMA but also caught some heat from UFC President Dana White. Two of Riddle’s wins were overturned after he failed for marijuana, which led to his UFC release and some harsh words by White.
Now that Riddle found success on the Indy scene and is part of NXT, he found an interview from 2013 where White slammed him for not being mature enough to pass a drug test and responded with the following tweet.
Hey Dana remember that time you fired me and talked all that shit on me to the world and called me a loser? I just wanted to say thank you for everything dummy ??? #bro #kingofbros #splx #stallion #wwe #nxt #ufc #danawhite pic.twitter.com/y5yH6POwKw

In the time since Riddle failed those drug tests, things have changed in MMA. Fighters are now allowed to have a certain amount of THC in their systems. Honestly, fighters having THC in their system is not that big of deal compared to performance enhancing drugs aka steroids or hardcore drugs like cocaine and heroin.
Riddle will compete on September 30 for PROGRESS against Mark Haskins to complete his Indy dates. After that show, Riddle could appear at the next set of NXT tapings.
