– WWE is officially advertising Rey Mysterio for Friday night’s WWE Raw live event from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA. He’s not advertised for any shows, including next week’s TVs, following this appearance. As we’ve noted, Mysterio is taking time away from WWE to deal with a personal family issue.
– As of this writing the plan is for Ric Flair to work both WWE Raw and Smackdown next week. He’ll then head overseas to work for All Japan Pro Wrestling on January 26, where he is scheduled to team with Keji Mutoh (The Great Muta) against Tatsumi Fujinami & Seiya Sanada.
