WWE.com posted an article on former New Japan Pro Wrestling star Kota Ibushi at the WWE NXT Takeover: Dallas WWE Network special. Here is an excerpt:

NXT TakeOver: Dallas had no shortage of action inside the ring, but there also was plenty of intrigue beyond the ropes. During the live WWE Network event, Kota Ibushi was seen sitting amongst the capacity crowd of NXT fans. Is the Japanese Superstar the next highly-acclaimed competitor to bring his talents to NXT? Let the speculation begin.

The decorated grappler could have been taking in another action-packed NXT TakeOver, like the thousands of other fans in attendance at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. However, there’s also the possibility that he’s scouting his future competition. If it’s indeed the latter, who in NXT might Ibushi have his sights set on? Does the man they call “Golden Star” have plans to enter his name into the recently announced Global Cruiserweight Series? What dream matchups could be in store for Ibushi?

As seen at WWE NXT Takeover: Dallas last night, American Alpha won the WWE tag team titles. Here are their post-match comments:

WWE Officials Holds Meeting with Talents In Dallas, What They Said About Working the Pre-show

– WWE held a meeting with Superstars and Divas in Dallas before WrestleMania 32 Week kicked off and one of the topics discussed had to do with the WrestleMania 32 Kickoff pre-show.

WWE made it clear that any Superstar or Diva working the pre-show was still a part of WrestleMania as they did not want anyone to feel left out.

It was said that just because talents are on the pre-show, that doesn’t mean they’re not a part of WrestleMania. It was also said the company doesn’t look at this as a regular pay-per-view, it’s seen as one big event from the second they go on the air until the second they go off the air, it’s all WrestleMania.

Backstage Talk on Seth Petruzelli and Roman Reigns vs. Triple H, Why Johnny Saint Was at the WWE PC

– We noted before that UK legend Johnny Saint was recently at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando for a guest coaching gig. The 74 year old was there to teach his legendary holds and counterholds style to the WWE NXT talents.

– It’s no secret that former MMA fighter Seth Petruzelli has been working as a striking coach with WWE talents since last fall. He has been training with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Triple H for Sunday’s WrestleMania 32 match against Roman Reigns and at one point there was talk of him getting involved in the match somehow. No word on how he might fit into plans but it was never confirmed and likely won’t be happening.
