— The latest on Wade Barrett’s WWE return is that he’ll be back following the SummerSlam pay-per-view. There was a rumor that he’d be appearing at the 1,000th RAW event but that doesn’t look to be happening now. Sources report that WWE creative already has a plan in place for him when he returns.
— According to WWE sources, former RAW General Manager John Laurinaitis will be returning to WWE television during the next several months. There is no word on what his current role will be as of this writing. Laurinaitis has continued to work live events since being “fired” on RAW several weeks ago. He has been teaming with The Big Show to take on John Cena in handicap matches.
