Thanks to Ranjit Chahal for his help with some of the following newsbits:
— It appears that WWE is giving R Truth a bit of a push again. Aside from beating Intercontinental Champion Wade Barrett, he was also given a win over the former United States Champion, Antonio Cesaro on Monday Night RAW this week. He also was allowed to perform his entrance theme on the show as well, which is something that hasn’t been televised in a while.
— The Rosa Mendes situation doesn’t affect just the WWE Diva. It also affects the team that she manages. There is a fear that Primo and Epico could lose whatever little television time they get because management will be punishing Rosa. Brodus Clay lost some screen time for the same reason last year with Cameron getting a DUI. Without the television time, Primo and Epico become even less relevant, which means that their job security decreases tremendously.
