-- Over the past few weeks, there has been a push from several WWE main event stars for the company to re-hire former mid-card talents that were released in the past but were considered quality workers as we reported earlier. With the WWE roster stretched very thin and WWE looking to groom a fresh crop of young stars, management is expected to begin reaching out to the former superstars in the coming weeks.
-- After undergoing immediate knee surgery Tuesday and being released from the hospital late in the evening, WWE Champion CM Punk was telling people close to him that he felt excellent as we reported earlier here on the website. Punk contacted WWE officials and informed them he would be able to compete against Ryback at TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs. Management, however, felt otherwise, stating it would be best if he did not compete at the pay-per-view event. They wanted him to bow out of the show and rest as to not jeopardize bigger, upcoming matches.
Punk will continue to appear on WWE programming while he heals.
-- Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will be chatting with fans Sunday afternoon via Twitter. "Inspiration, information & a good dirty joke. Been too long.. you & me LIVE! SUNDAY 1pm EST," he announced Saturday.
