– WWE posted a video of R-Truth discussing his second United States Open Challenge that will take place during tonight’s Smackdown. You can see the video below, in which Truth takes a call he says is from John Cena, who created the US Open Challenge. Truth had a brief conversation with the person on the other end and then hung up, saying “Gotta make John proud.” When Sarfah Schreiber asked if Cena gave him any advice, Truth replied, “Never give up. He’s my idol, you know what I’m saying? Ever since I was a wee, wee little tot, I watched him, you know what I’m saying? He did his thing, and I’m gonna do my thing. I wanna be like John.”

– WWE posted the following preview for tonight’s 205 Live:
