While the "A" crew was at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York for the WWE Live from MSG: Brock Lesnar vs. Big Show special on the Network, the "B" crew was in Bangor, Maine for a house show of its own. Headlining that show was a No Disqualification match between Roman Reigns and Bray Wyatt. At some point during the match, Wyatt suffered a bad cut, as detailed throughout the night by reporter Jon Alba who was live on the scene: If Wyatt is heavily bandaged on Raw this week, you'll know why.
Caitlyn Jenner may have rocked the sports world by coming out as transgender earlier this year, but another Olympian had made major waves decades before with a then-shocking announcement. The two champs were reunited for the first time since Jenner's transition on Saturday night at a charity event. Five-time Olympic medalist Greg Louganis, who is still the record holder for national titles in platform diving, came out as gay in 1988 in a best-selling book, Breaking the Surface , and revealed in 1995 during an Oprah Winfrey interview that he is HIV positive.

While he and Jenner first met in Montreal at the 1976 Olympics, when Louganis was 16 and Jenner won the gold for the decathlon, he hadn’t official been reintroduced to Jenner since she became Caitlyn. "We remained friends and traveled together on speaking tours for the next two decades," Louganis, now 55, told the audience at the Point Foundation's Los Angeles gala. "The last time we saw each other was about 18 months ago in Malibu. But it wasn't until tonight that I had the pleasure of meeting the incredible woman she is today -- and she's just as strong, courageous, tenacious, smart and beautiful as ever." @Caitlyn_Jenner and me! #VoicesOnPoint pic.twitter.com/8FetBgimg7— Gregory Louganis (@greglouganis) October 4, 2015 At only her second public speech since being honored at the ESPY awards in July, 65-year-old reality star -- who was decked out in a stunning red pantsuit that teased a lacy red bra underneath -- joked that she didn't have to do much to earn the room's applause. "A standing ovation for coming out here and not tripping in heels!” she said. "I've always been kind of tall, but I walked out here today, and I had to raise the mic up even higher. Girls, it is all about the shoes, isn't it?" Then she spoke more seriously about the impact Louganis had on young LGBT athletes, including Jenner herself. "I've always lived my entire life with things inside me that I could never express to other people, except a very few people," Jenner said. "And so many times with Greg, I kept thinking to myself, he would be very understanding, he would be a great person to talk to about some of my issues and just never had the opportunity -- until tonight."

Jenner said appearing at the Point Foundation event, where she honored two transgender TV producers, Rhys Enrst and Zach Zyskowski, who had previously received college scholarships from the organization, was a far more relaxing experience than her lengthy acceptance speech at the ESPYs in July. "This is a very different group," she said. "When I did that, honestly I had to divorce myself from where I was. I'd been at the ESPY Awards many, many times. I couldn't put it in my head. I'm standing up there, in my perfectly executed Donatella Versace gown, and I'm looking down at LeBron James, Brett Favre, and I'm thinking, 'I can't go there.' I just have to stick to my speech, get it out. Somehow, I look at this audience, and I just don't get that feeling that it's that intimidating to me." NEWS: Caitlyn Jenner Subtly Changes Official Name Change After the event, Jenner shared a photo of herself with Ernst and Zyskowski, reiterating that it was her "privilege to present" them with the Horizon Award at the gala.

Scott Disick's relationship with his rumored new girlfriend is heating up quickly. The 32-year-old reality star was spotted cozying up to 18-year-old model Lindsay Vrckovnik in Miami, Florida, on Friday, just two days after they were seen together in New York City.

Pichichi/Splash News ET previously reported that Disick has been spotted multiple times with the young blonde beauty. A source tells ET that Vrckovnik was staying with the father of three in New York City, and the pair had a late night on Wednesday that started at a bar in Manhattan's East Village neighborhood around 10 p.m. They also headed to a house party in NoHo around midnight before heading to 1 Oak nightclub, where they stayed until 4 a.m. "Scott was hanging with this girl all night," a source inside the club told ET. "He had his arm around her and they looked very couple-y. He kissed her a few times and was whispering in her ear with a smile on his face. She seemed very into him but a little out of place, very uncomfortable when people were looking at her."

It is not every day that you see a 30-ton armored amphibious assault vehicle launch off an elevated concrete pier at high speed into the water, but for the 70th anniversary of the Indonisian Armed Forces, this was apparently part of the spectacle. The vehicle shown is the AAV-P7, also known as “Landing Vehicle, Tracked, Personnel-7” (LVTP-7). Often times they are just refereed to as AAVs or “Amtracks.” The AAV-P7 was originally designed and built by United Defense and is been used by the USMC and a dozen other marine arms from around the globe. The AAV-p7 carries a crew of up to four plus up to 25 troops internally, depending on the variant. It is usually equipped with a 40mm grenade launcher
She’s on a mission to be a softer, warmer, funnier candidate — but according to a new book, the real Hillary Clinton is so volatile and prone to violent outbursts that she terrorizes staff, Secret Service agents and even her own husband. In “The Clintons’ War On Women” (Skyhorse), out Oct. 13, political strategist Roger Stone details Hillary’s abusive behavior — dating back to the Clintons’ days in Arkansas, where Bill served as governor. “Hillary Clinton has a long history of being domestically violent with Bill,” Stone writes. “Hillary has beaten Bill, hit him with hard objects, scratched and clawed him, and made him bleed.” Stone, a controversial figure who recently decamped from Donald Trump’s
