– Rey Mysterio who is a former world heavyweight champion was not at this week’s WWE RAW or SmackDown TV tapings.
Andrews Take: There has been no reason for him not being there, but he might have just taken the nights off. He did not appear on Raw and we have been reporting that he has possibly made up his mind on leaving World Wrestling Entertainment. As always if we hear anything then we will let you know.
– This week’s WWE SmackDown Pre-show and Backstage Pass post-show will feature the same stars who did the panels for Monday’s RAW. Those people are Josh Mathews, Alex Riley, Booker T and special guest Hacksaw Jim Duggan.
Andrews Take: I really dig the pre and post shows that WWE does on the network. It gives a big fight feel to the show. Now will it wear off down the road, it’s a possibility.
– Former TNA talent and current Indy wrestler. Joey Ryan posted the following about his recent training down at the WWE performance center:
In August, William Regal brought up the idea of me moving to FL to be a NXT trainer but I want to wrestle still so I did the tryout instead.
