Join WhatCulture's Andy H. Murray and Adam Wilbourn as they bring you Friday's rundown of all the latest wrestling news.

Today's news video begins with one of NXT 2.0's new characters, Joe Gacy, whose "woke" gimmick came under media scrutiny from outlets that wouldn't normally cover pro wrestling earlier this week. WWE has now moved to delete all references to the character across their website and social media channels (00:30).
