The New Day Remembers Reporter Alison Parker, John Cena on Tom Brady, Night of Champions Promo

- Sting and WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins are featured in this new Night of Champions promo:

[embedded content]

- IndyStar.com covered John Cena’s ESPN SportsCenter appearance from the weekend and these comments Cena made about NFL quarterback Tom Brady, who play for Cena’s New England Patriots, as he goes through the Deflate Gate scandal:

“Let your accomplishments speak for yourself. There is no better argument to any speculation than to go out there and just kick some ass. You are great; you are part of a great organization that prides itself on trying to create a dynasty atmosphere. Stay the course, keep doing well, and years from now we’ll just wonder why we spent federal tax dollars investigating deflated footballs.”

- We noted earlier that news reporter Alison Parker, who was murdered on live TV this morning while conducting an interview, covered WWE TV tapings in Virginia last year and met The New Day. The WWE Tag Team Champions remembered her on Twitter:

Shaken by the news of the tragic passing of Alison Parker. We all loved her energy and warmth. pic.twitter.com/TjKRSmT7HA

Bubba Ray Responds To Big E, Triple H's Daughters Fans Of Sara Lee, ROH Star On The New Day

- Title Match Wrestling posted this video with Ring of Honor star Cedric Alexander talking about WWE Tag Team Champions The New Day, why you should watch ROH over NXT or TNA and other topics. Alexander was in the news this past April after speaking out about The New Day gimmick, saying, “…when you’ve got three black guys singing and dancing, stereotypes get fed too much and I hate it.”

- OurMidland.com spoke with WWE Tough Enough winner Sara Lee’s parents today. They noted that she came up with her “Hope” persona by herself and the name comes from the town she’s from – Hope, Michigan. Her dad Bob revealed some of her biggest fans:

“It’s surreal. It’s awesome. It’s a positive thing. Triple H said to her at SummerSlam that his little girls came back and they were all excited about meeting Sara Lee. He said you can’t teach personality, and that’s what she has.”

- We noted earlier that Big E tweeted about The Dudley Boys and called them “old dudes.” Bubba Ray responded on Twitter today:

Dear @WWEBigE , Be careful Big man…next time it will be you going through that table!! Peace out, Bubba and Devon https://t.co/3Kl8kpXjks

Jushin "Thunder" Liger Working More For WWE?

Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

- It was originally reported that wrestling legend Jushin “Thunder” Liger would just be working one date with WWE – the win over Tyler Breeze at NXT “Takeover: Brooklyn” this past weekend. However, Liger is now expected to work more dates with WWE.

One promoter noted to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter that they tried to book Liger for a few dates but was told WWE already had him booked for those dates. This could be a sign that he’s been offered some sort of contract by WWE, similar to the one Samoa Joe is working under but likely not as extensive as he’s with New Japan Pro Wrestling.
