— As noted before, WWE Divas Champion Nikki Bella vs. Beth Phoenix has been added to the Extreme Rules pay-per-view. WWE’s website reports that Beth has been cleared to compete, despite suffering the injury on Monday’s RAW.
WWE is really playing up the storyline injury and the fact that Beth is going into the match still recovering.
— Jim Ross wrote the following on Twitter Thursday about why Brock Lesnar has returned to WWE:
“Brock Lesnar is back in WWE to: 1 intimidate 2 brutalize 3 earn BIG money NOT to 1 work on public speaking skills 2 make friends 3 lose”
“Fans that naively think that money & being able to physically dominate people didn’t affect Lesnar’s return to WWE aren’t being honest. Word”
