- There were a lot of people surprised that Sin Cara was booked to compete at this week’s Raw after the tour bus fiasco with Chris Jericho. Vince McMahon is expected to address the issue directly when the crew gets back to the US and as we reported earlier, there is significant heat on him over it. While disagreements and issues like this are common when it comes to wrestlers, Cara flat out isn’t high enough on the card to continue to cause problems.

- TJ Perkins’s injury last week was a combination of nagging injuries that we’ve already mentioned in addition to him coming down on his head and neck.

- The talk at this week’s WWE television was a predicted triple powerbomb spot from The Shield through a table at Survivor Series in a couple of weeks.

- While the crux of WWE Survivor Series is Brock Lesnar vs. Bill Goldberg, we’re expecting some long-term angles to be put in places with an expected blow-off date of Royal Rumble.

- There is a possibility that Samoa Joe appears at WWE Survivor Series but we’re not confirming it. His call-up to the main roster is drawing near.

- It’s interesting to note there have been discussions about doing Shane McMahon vs. Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania 33 next year. The match Vince McMahon has wanted for years is The Rock vs. Brock it’s looking less likely that Rock will be available. Triple H would prefer they go young with Lesnar, with him getting a newer talent, possibly someone currently in the top of the card down in NXT. Vince felt they wasted Brock this year with the Dean Ambrose match last year and wants a bigger splash at Wrestlemania 33.

- Edge is booked for next week’s Smackdown and is someone that both Vince McMahon and Triple H hope to get on television more regularly.
