– We noted last year, via The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, that WWE was looking to hold more international tournaments, and had plans to crown the first WWE Asian Champion and the first Latin American Champion. It appeared that those plans were off, however Planeta Wrestling is reporting that WWE will be hosting a Latin American tournament this summer featuring wrestlers from Chile, Peru, Argentina, Mexico, Brazil and other countries. The report stated that the tapings will be held in Chile by the end of August, and that there will not be a champion crowned, so it would be similar to the Mae Young Classic. William Regal will be producing the tournament.
– As noted, WWE confirmed today that “Born For Greatness” by Papa Roach is one of the new RAW theme songs. They also just announced that “Charge Up The Power” by Goodbye June is another new RAW theme, as seen below:

– Bo Dallas worked weekend WWE live events by himself as Curtis Axel was on a family vacation in Jamaica and WWE Intercontinental Champion The Miz apparently had the weekend off. No word yet on if Axel and Miz will be back for tonight’s RAW but Miz has been going back & forth with Finn Balor on social media as of late. Weekend RAW live events saw Dallas lose to Balor in the openers. It looks like we might get Balor vs. Miz or Balor vs. Dallas on tonight’s RAW.
