WWE News: Kofi Kingston's Status, Cedric Alexander on Raw, Street Profits

-- PWInsider.com reports that Kofi Kingston, who has been held out of action lately with a rumored back injury, is expected to be ready to wrestle this Sunday at Extreme Rules. Alexa Bliss' situation is still unknown as she battles a sinus infection.

-- The original plan for Roman Reigns' tag team partner on Raw was for it to be played by an extra. However, during the course of the day, a pitch was made for Cedric Alexander to be used in that spot instead. There is expected to be some sort of follow-up to Alexander's involvement in the match this Monday on Raw.

-- Many of Raw's backstage segments are pre-taped and then aired later for the live show. The one exception is all the segments with the Street Profits this past Monday were live as the intention was to ensure the energy was as "vibrant" as possible, noted by PWInsider.
