– WWE posted this video with Sheamus checking in from Dublin, Ireland on the current international tour. Sheamus mentions how it’s been almost 8 years since he debuted with WWE and he’s returned home several times but it always feels like the first time. Sheamus talks more about coming back home with WWE and thanks the Irish fans for their support.
– Matches confirmed for tonight’s WWE NXT episode are Aleister Black vs. Cezar Bononi and Hideo Itami vs. Roderick Strong with the winner facing NXT Champion Bobby Roode at “Takeover: Chicago” later this month.
– As noted, Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Dolph Ziggler is now official for the May 21st WWE Backlash pay-per-view.
Below is video from last night’s Talking Smack with Dasha Fuentes talking to Ziggler following the SmackDown segment with Nakamura, which saw Nakamura get the best of Ziggler. Ziggler talks about how he’s done everything in WWE because of how good he is. He’s here to win but every now and then he loses his way, then forgets how damn good he is but he always readjusts. Ziggler says Nakamura has never had 1 match on SmackDown and if anyone can figure him out, it’s Ziggler. Ziggler says he’s spent 8 years picking apart his opponents because he can. Ziggler goes on to say he will figure Nakamura out at Backlash and introduce him to the WWE Universe, then his foot.
