Backstage news on Austin-McMahon podcast, news on ROH and TNA talent at NXT

As we noted last week, Santana Garrett (former TNA Knockout Brittany) was backstage at the NXT TakeOver show. At one point she was scheduled to wrestle Charlotte at the TV tapings on Friday but Charlotte was already booked to work twice that night so the plans for Santana’s match were changed. They rewrote the entire show that afternoon. It appears that Santana could be working under a mask for Lucha Underground if these pictures are an indication.

Adam Pearce was once again at NXT this past week as a guest trainer.

Here’s a note on the Steve Austin podcast with Vince McMahon from a couple of weeks ago. There were no directives given out by anyone during the show to get off a subject. I noticed (as did a lot of people) that Vince McMahon was uncomfortable at times. Steve Austin noted on this week’s podcast that Vince gave a funny look when Austin mentioned that fans could send in their feedback via twitter. But there was no directive from Kevin Dunn or anyone to get off any subject including the one where Austin brought up having to pay a fine when he returned to the company in 2003 after walking out 8 months earlier.
