-- It was announced on RAW this week that Ron Simmons would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame. In an update in this, John "Bradshaw" Layfield inducting him is not official but it is the current plan. Layfield wrote Tuesday on Facebook in regards to inducting his longtime tag team partner, "As far as who is inducting Ron into the HOF-I would consider one of my greatest lifetime honors if I am chosen. However, it hasn't been announced-SO, if I knew who was I couldn't say. And, if I don't know I couldn't say either obviously. So, I wait on the announcement like everyone else."

-- As seen over the past several weeks, WWE has not yet followed up on Kharma's appearance at the Royal Rumble. The reason for this is simply because she hasn't fully recovered from giving birth on December 31, 2011 and isn't ready to work a full-time schedule. She competed in the Rumble Match because creative felt it would create a good story since it wasn't expected.
