- Jerry Lawler's removal from the pre-show panel prior to Raw, Smackdown and PPVs appears to be primarily related to his age. Internally, it has been known for a long time that WWE was going to be phasing out Lawler much like they did with Jim Ross as Vince has a belief that the audience doesn't want to see older people on TV.

- Paige's 60-day drug policy violation ends next week, but she will not be wrestling anytime soon as she recovers from neck surgery. However, once she is off suspension, she will begin earning her downside guarantee so there's a chance that WWE could use her on TV in non-physical roles.
