  • Expect big things for Neville - and other “known” names like Austin Aries and even the 46 year old Tajiri - moving forward on Raw and 205 Live.
  • Mick Foley’s upcoming time off is so he can get hip replacement surgery, according to Wrestling Observer, and it will entail his being gone for more than just December.
  • Chris Hero told a PWG crowd this weekend that nothing is definite regarding his returning to WWE.
