- We're told that many within ROH Wrestling thought Jay and Mark Briscoe attending Saturday night's WWE live event in Ocean City, Maryland was a "huge work." The idea was they were re-signing with ROH but got WWE comp seats to draw attention and take in the show. There were others [within ROH] wondering if they were talking with WWE but if the move was made to get attention, it worked.

- Speaking of Ring of Honor, they've contacted Alex Shelley about working the upcoming ROH Championship Tournament. One source tells us not to count on it as Shelley is working in Japan and treating it like a vacation. This source feels if he returns to work in the United States, it will be with WWE.

- There are a number of guys north of 30 currently in WWE's developmental system that are seen as "now or never" prospects. Names WWE is currently looking for the right opportunity for include Kassius Ohno and Leo Kruger.

- A lot of names are being thrown around regarding Money in the Bank Ladder Match winners but until we see an actual run sheet (which we won't), take this as nothing more than educated speculation. Daniel Bryan appears to be the favorite in the WWE Championship MITB Ladder Match while Antonio Cesaro and Damien Sandow have emerged as favorites in the World Heavyweight Championship MITB Ladder Match. It all depends on the future direction, which hinges on a number of things and could literally change the outcome at the drop of a hat.

- The major booking error of last week centered around the direction of The Shield. After being booked so dominant for so long, they've racked up the losses heading into a pay-per-view match against The Usos that is seen as "beneath them." The talk all summer has been something at SummerSlam involving The Undertaker and Kane but once again, booking backwards has backfired.

- Apparently AJ Lee and Kaitlyn wanted to do a ladder match at the pay-per-view next week but with the Knockouts Ladder Match on this week's Impact Wrestling, the idea was quickly shot down.
