-WWE personality Lana (C.J. Perry) announced via Twitter her mother is out of the hospital and recovering at home after battle COVID-19. The Perry family had a rough week, as Lana’s mother, father, and husband (Rusev) all were infected with coronavirus. We wish Lana, Rusev, and their families a very healthy and speedy recovery!
-The Four Horsewomen – Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, and Bayley celebrated the five year anniversary of their main roster debuts on July 13. Time flies when you’re having great matches and making history. You can make the argument WWE could’ve done a significantly better job with Banks and Bayley as top babyfaces, but it’s great to see that they weathered the creative s***storm to continuously find success in WWE.
-The Raw July 13 episode did the lowest modern era rating with a horrific 1.56 million viewer average per ShowBuzzDaily.com. A couple of years ago, it would’ve been unfathomable for Raw to do under 2 million viewers. Clearly, the Bruce Prichard Era with old stars and crappy mid-2000s style angles is going great.
