* Although Gail Kim has yet to receive medical clearance to return from her broken collarbone, she is set to return soon.
* Backstage at the Royal Rumble PPV, wrestlers from the RAW and Smackdown brands compared the camaraderie between the two locker rooms. The general belief is that Smackdown is considered one big family while RAW is very cliquish and paranoid.
* Also after the Royal Rumble, the entire Smackdown roster was sad to say farewell to Chris Benoit. Many feel he was one of the favorite personalities backstage and often used his dry sense of humor to his advantage while cracking jokes on others in the locker room. He was warned by some of the more informed wrestlers that the RAW locker room is more like that of the old WCW locker room and very political.
