-- On a recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed the release of Steve Cutler, noting that it ended up affecting a major storyline involving Murphy. As we saw in February, Cutler and Wesley Blake of the Forgotten Sons returned to TV and aligned with King Corbin with the plan being that they would be the "Knights of the Lone Wolf." When Cutler contracted COVID, he was off TV and when he was healthy to return, the company decided to abandon the program. Meltzer adds that the plan was for Cutler, Blake and Corbin to end up facing Rey Mysterio, Dominik Mysterio and Murphy but with Cutler released and Blake off TV, Murphy no longer has a role in this storyline or the one with Aalyah Mysterio.

-- Fightfulselect.com reports that Zelina Vega's non-compete clause is going to be expiring in the very near future but as of this time, they have not heard of any other promotions expressing interest in signing her. However, that is not unexpected as Vega is still on the non-compete and getting paid by WWE and any third parties would wait for that to wrap up before going public with any sort of interest.
