Another WWE Name Change

wwe raw previewWWE has changed the name of yet another Superstar. Prior to a match and victory over Kofi Kingston, Alexander Rusev was introduced by Lana as simply "Rusev". His entrance name plate also read "Rusev", although the commentary team did refer to him by his first name at least once. This marks the third time in recent memory that WWE has tossed out part of a Superstar's name, along with Big E and Cesaro. 

Barrett Defends the Title on Raw

Bad News Barrett successfully defended the Intercontinental Championship in a rematch against Big E tonight on Monday Night Raw, just 24 hours after winning the title at WWE Extreme Rules, live on pay-per-view and the WWE Network. 

Barrett is now officially a four-time Intercontinental Champion, and pending any last minute changes, he will carry the title into his home country of England when Raw returns to the UK in just two weeks.
