Note On UK Stars In 205 Live Tourney
As seen on WWE 205 Live, several UK talents, including Mark Andrews and Tyler Bate, are being used for the WWE Cruiserweight Title tournament, which has lead to speculation that UK stars might be appearing regularly on 205 Live.
It appears as if current plans are for the UK talents to appear only in the tournament, as Dave Meltzer Tweeted the following:
I think just the tournament https://t.co/SLzQ3s2eHX

Rugby Legend at WWE Performance Center
WWE.com has announced the following:
One of the United States’ most decorated rugby players of all time is getting an up-close look at the WWE Performance Center this week in Orlando, Fla.
At the invitation of WWE scouts, retired flanker Todd Clever is in Orlando to check out the world-renowned training facility. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Clever holds the distinction of being the first American to play in Super Rugby competition. He is also the most capped player in U.S. history, meaning he has appeared in more games at the international level than any other American.
Nicknamed “Captain America” for his many stints captaining the Eagles (the United States’ national rugby team), Clever announced his retirement from rugby last June. Prior to that, he spent 11 years in professional competition, including playing for clubs in England, Japan, New Zealand and South Africa.
Clever is the latest luminary from the pitch to visit the WWE PC. South African hooker Ethienne Reynecke worked out alongside NXT athletes last November, and Australian wing Daniel Vidot took part in an invitation-only tryout in October. Last January, retired English prop forward Eorl Crabtree, the nephew of U.K. sports-entertainment legend Big Daddy, observed a WWE PC workout and took in an NXT TV taping.
What could Clever’s presence at the WWE PC mean as WWE’s talent development team continues scouting prospects from the world of rugby?
