Stars Respond To Botched Nakamura Suplex
Several wrestlers took to Twitter in response to John Cena badly landing on his neck at the closing of his losing effort to Shinsuke Nakamura on SmackDown.
Kevin Owens joked:
Those freaking out over @JohnCena's rough landing must have missed the fact that he was revealed to be an actual transformer the day before.

As of now it doesn’t look like there’s any heat on the Japanese star – after all ‘it takes two to tango.’
Bayley Shoulder Injury Confirmed
WWE have confirmed that Bayley injured her shoulder during the match with Nia Jax on RAW. The former Raw Women’s Champion was evaluated by medical personnel, but the official diagnosis was inconclusive due to the amount of swelling involved. Bayley has been told to rest the shoulder until next week, when she will be reevaluated.

I think sending heaps of hugs to @itsBayleyWWE will heal her shoulder faster than if we didn't send hugs. So…HOW'S THERE NO HUG EMOJI🤦🏻♀️

JR Talks Jones vs Lesnar
In his latest JRSBARBQ.com blog Jim Ross discussed the Brock Lesnar returning to UFC rumors, and revealed that Jon Jones might actually want to do something in WWE as well:
“Jon Jones challenged Brock Lesnar after Jones KO win over Daniel Cromier at UFC214 [on] Saturday night and the UFC found out what they needed to know, and that is the public will buy a Bones-Brock battle in the Octagon. I’m thinking to the tune of 1 million buys on PPV when this one likely happens in 2018. This main event gives UFC a ‘hit,’ without question, while they await other stars to either return to form (George St-Pierre and Conor McGregor) or continue to evolve as legit, PPV selling main eventers. Also, I don’t see any scenario at this time that would drive any wedges between Lesnar and WWE regarding the WWE star being able to go collect a massive, seven figure plus payday while keeping his name in the public eye.”
“Ironically, word on the street is that [Jon] Jones is also interested in a WWE payday some day in the future, which adds some irony to the Bones-Brock UFC scenario.”
