– As seen on this week’s episode of 205 Live on the WWE Network, NXT announcer Vic Joseph called the show alongside Corey Graves. It appears that Joseph has been called up to the main roster and will be calling 205 Live full-time going forward. Tom Phillips, who used to call 205 Live, tweeted out the following:

– Speaking of 205 Live, two matches has been announced for next week’s show in Dayton, Ohio. Drew Gulak vs. Mustafa Ali and Tony Nese vs. Jack Gallagher.
– We noted earlier on the site Zack Ryder, who had been out of action with a knee injury since December, returned to SmackDown Live to reunite with his tag team partner Mojo Rawley in a backstage segment. Rawley and Ryder appeared on Talking Smack on the WWE Network. Rawley was asked if he wants to return to tag team action when he’s this hot as a singles wrestler. He said that they became #1 contenders for a reason as a lot of hard work went into the match, and they earned the opportunity. Ryder said that they have proven that they are great competitors on their own but brought up how they earned a shot at the SmackDown Tag Team Championship, and it would be stupid if they didn’t go after the championships. Ryder brought up how SmackDown Commissioner Shane McMahon wasn’t here this week, and they need to talk to him about the title shot.
