Jon Stewart got caught up in wrestling talk...
- WWE will broadcast Main Event and tape Smackdown tonight in Orlando, Florida. Main Event will feature Sheamus vs Rusev while Smackdown will feature Roman Reigns vs Alberto Del Rio.
- The Rock will promote his new film Hercules on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon tonight.
- Lana and Rusev were mentioned on last night's episode of The Daily Show. Stewart, who is a wrestling fan, responded to their comments at Battleground by basically cutting a promo about Jack Swagger getting revenge for losing by countout. He also reference Antonio Cesaro as the "King of Swing", blaming him for Swagger being off his game. He then catches himself getting hyped up, gets embarrassed and looks around, asking, "wrong room?"
- David Otunga will appear on the July 30 episode of ABC's General Hospital as himself. He was mentioned last week by the older character Alice, who is said to be a former professional wrestler in the hospital because of a heart attack. Otunga told Soap Opera Digest that the show is his sister's favorite and he was invited to appear. He added that he started watching it himself recently. He will appear in scenes visiting Alice in the hospital and interacting with Michaels and Kiki.
- The WWE Network's episode of The Main Event from February 1988 (Andre the Giant vs Hulk Hogan for the WWF Title) runs longer than the original broadcast. It shows the finish of Strike Force vs Hart Foundation. The original special went off the air before the match ended. The Network version continues after a Network sign-off.
