– WWE has a new “Walk the Aisle” VIP feature for upcoming live events. The add-on features a seat in the first 4 rows on the aisle, a chance to “walk the aisle” before the show begins, a ringside photo op, three exclusive pieces of merchandise, a signed piece of merchandise, a program and a commemorative ticket. This offer is not available in all markets but can be added to your order when using Ticketmaster.

– Drew McIntyre is already back to working out, as seen in this new video from the Hard Knocks South gym in Tampa. McIntyre suffered a bicep injury at WWE NXT “Takeover: WarGames” as he lost the NXT Title to Andrade “Cien” Almas. McIntyre will not be able to return in time for his rematch at “Takeover: Philly” during WWE Royal Rumble weekend.

First workout after surgery. Some people wait to heal. Others heal themselves. @DMcIntyreWWE
