- Ric Flair is back to taking bookings. After SummerSlam, WWE wanted Flair to get help and he canceled existing bookings, citing a reoccurring problem and hospitalization with blood clots in his legs. Flair told friends he was staying in Florida with his daughter, resting up and not traveling.
- It’s unlikely that Wade Barrett’s new gimmick will be the Badnews Barrett character we see on The JBL & Cole Show. Apparently it would be a big surprise if something they did on the YouTube show ever made it to TV. Still, there are plans to re-package Barrett just because the roster is lacking singles heel stars.
- Several people in WWE believe that former football player turned NXT star Mojo Rawley is the breakout star with the most potential right now.
