Except for Braun Strowman destroying a set, nothing much really happened on WWE TV this week. To be quite honest, this was a tepid week of wrestling, after the madness of Wrestle Kingdom 12, the week prior.

Don't worry, mates. There was enough that happened behind the scenes this week, to ensure that this news recap will be quite entertaining indeed. For your reading pleasure, we present the seven hottest news items in a weekly piece we like to dub SKFabe.

So, if you've been intoxicated by this picture of Becky Lynch, shake those effects off. Scroll down and commence your recap of this week's hottest news and updates.

Everyone's been buzzing about the Mixed Match Challenge tournament. WWE put up a poll on social media to ask fans to vote for Bayley's partner, during this multi man challenge. Samoa Joe seemed to be leading the pack. Fans were intrigued at how Joe would react, when he was offered a hug, in all likelihood.

Unfortunately, Kurt Angle shared some terrible news about the Mixed Match Challenge, and Samoa Joe via Twitter.

Thankfully, he would follow up that update with some good news. Bayley would have a partner, in Elias.

Samoa Joe sustained an injury during his match against Rhyno on RAW, this week. We have to wait until the next week, to gauge the seriousness of the same. Let's hope he can make a comeback, very soon indeed. Rumours unfortunately indicate that he may miss the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
