- The last information I heard regarding Rey Mysterio was that he continues to deal with personal issues hence his time off of television. WWE wrote his tag team partner, Sin Cara, off television at Super Smackdown Live last week so he could have arthroscopic knee surgery.

- John Morrison may not have agreed to a new WWE contract yet but we're told he's cleared his scheduled for Royal Rumble weekend in January should a deal get done. As previously reported, Morrison pitched himself as a surprise entrant in the 30-man Royal Rumble match but Vince McMahon wanted more of a long-term commitment.

- It's worth noting that Jim Ross was called to work last week's WWE Raw on Sunday night while Tommy Dreamer wasn't called until late Monday afternoon. That's pretty much all you need to know about the current volatility of WWE creative plans.
