– Both Vince McMahon and Triple H returned to the United States after Monday’s WWE Raw taping in Birmingham, England to be with Linda McMahon in Connecticut on Election Day. I would assume Kevin Dunn will be in charge at Tuesday’s Smackdown tapings although we’re unable to confirm Stephanie McMahon’s whereabouts as of this writing.
– For those that missed Raw this week, “suspended” referee Brad Maddox will face Ryback on next week’s show. As the storyline goes, if Maddox wins, Vince McMahon will “reward” him with a $1 million contract.
– The deliberate on-air “blowing up” of the Survivor Series card on this week’s WWE Raw is about as clear of a picture of the current state of WWE creative as anything I have ever seen. Things are always subject to change but rarely do they do so on television after they’ve been announced.
