— Former WWE star Shane Helms was backstage visiting at Tuesday night’s SmackDown tapings from Raleigh, North Carolina.
— The Miz is scheduled to return at next week’s RAW from Tulsa, Oklahoma.
— Paul Heyman chose this week’s WWE Five-Star Match of the Week, and he selected The Rock vs. Brock Lesnar from SummerSlam 2002. Here is what he had to say about the match…
“First of all, I disagree with the designation that it’s The Rock vs. Brock. It is Brock Lesnar vs. The Rock. Brock deserves top billing. And he deserves top billing because he won the match. [Brock] did not win the match with outside interference. In fact, The Rock hit me with a Rock Bottom through a table. I was not an equation. Brock Lesnar defeated The Rock cleanly to become the Undisputed WWE Champion, and in doing so, he put his boot on the neck of The Attitude Era and anointed himself the new reigning monarch of the WWE Universe.”
