Richard's Exclusive Update: Mysterio & Others Back To WWE?, Reigns's Return, Goldberg At WM33, Authority Figures On Raw

Rey Mysterio

- WWE is expected to give Roman Reigns a dress rehearsal match before WWE Battleground at their live event in Wildwood, New Jersey on Saturday, July 23, 2016. He won't appear on TV before then (at least not live) due to his suspension.

- Rey Mysterio, Shelton Benjamin and John Morrison are among former WWE Superstars that could return to help bolster WWE's roster with the upcoming brand split. Mysterio has wanted to get back for quite some time, officials have always been high up on Benjamin and Vince McMahon recently put an edict out for officials to find out how to get around Morrison's Lucha Underground deal. We have much more available at this link.

- We saw where Bill Goldberg told that WWE HAS NOT contacted him about a return to the ring or the Hall of Fame. He is very much in play, regardless of what formal discussions have taken place. The idea would be to have him work Wrestlemania 33 and we have the very latest available at this link.

- Neville is a name that WWE hopes to have back before SummerSlam. He's been out of action since March with a fractured ankle.

- Hideo Itami returned to WWE NXT at last night's live event in Winter Haven, Florida. Itami teamed with TM-61 to oppose WWE NXT Champion Samoa Joe, Tino Sabbatelli & Blake.

- Charly Arnolt started with WWE NXT at the same show Itami returned at, making her debut as an announcer. Her WWE name is Charly Caruso.

- WWE have announced that at least one of the three former authority figures will appear on next week's episode of Monday Night Raw - Teddy Long, John Laurinaitis and Corporate Kane.
