– As seen on last night’s SmackDown, Darren Young was busted up in the segment where Titus O’Neil turned heel. Young noted on Twitter that he had to get 8 stitches. He tweeted:

“8 stitches and I’m good. Its physical out there and I don’t mind it. #doingbadallbymyself @wwe #nodaysoff”

– There were never any real plans internally for Jake “The Snake” Roberts to work the 30-man Royal Rumble match this year. WWE had Jake work the Old School RAW as a way to set the stage for his Hall of Fame induction. Officials saw that as something bigger than a quick appearance in the Rumble match.
