-With the number of women being featured on WWE Evolution, Meltzer speculated a possible Battle Royal match could be taking place in order to get all of the women to appear on the show. In addition to current WWE stars appearing, it was also announced that legends such as Lita, Trish Stratus, Beth Phoenix and more will also be appearing.

-As for why Vince McMahon’s TV role was limited on WWE Raw this week, Dave Meltzer noted that Vince does not want to appear on TV as much anymore as he is looking older at 72 years of age, and he is now allowing Triple H and Stephanie McMahon to act as the McMahon “faces” of WWE.
