-- WWE creative team member Michael Hayes is dealing with a personal issue and has been off the road for several weeks now.
-- As noted earlier here on the website, WWE Hall Of Famer Dusty Rhodes is famous for going to the ring and cutting promos completely on his own, without the use of a pre-written script by the WWE creative team. Apparently, this style has caused some friction backstage recently. On recent editions of WWE RAW, Dusty was cutting promos without a script, and even cut Stephanie McMahon off a few times, to the displeasure of the bosses daughter. Additionally, Dusty did the dreaded "face-palm" to Stephanie during a recent promo, which was also something that was not scripted. Stephanie apparently had no idea it was coming, and was not happy about it at all.
