– Expect to have a better idea about who will be challenging Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship after this week’s TV tapings. We’re told the mentions last week of Rob Van Dam as a potential challenger have cooled.

– We’re told a round of Wellness testing was conducted in WWE last week. Talent was told they needed to consult their medical staff before taking anything, even if it can be legally purchased over-the-counter.
