-Amongst the NXT talent that Brennan spoke to before tonight’s show, there was a general sense of excitement heading into NXT Battleground this weekend.

-A significant ladder element was initially planned for the North American Women’s Title Summit early on in the day.

-For those asking about Joe Hendry possibly showing up on NXT television, we hadn’t heard of any other TNA talent being seen in Orlando ahead of tonight’s show. Jordynne Grace’s match with Stevie Turner is set to open tonight’s show.

-Shawn Michaels was said to be ‘very secretive’ about tonight’s show backstage, with one NXT source telling Brennan to expect “a crazy show.”

-We had heard of at least one pitch for Lola Vice and Shayna Baszler’s NXT Underground match to take place inside a UFC Octagon at Battleground, but have not heard if this is officially planned for NXT’s visit to the UFC Apex this weekend.

-An NXT Title defense for Trick Williams and at least one other match are expected to be announced for NXT Battleground. We have not been able to confirm what this other match will be as of this writing.
