– While Shawn Michaels said his December 16th RAW appearance was a last minute thing, his segment with CM Punk was on the script that people saw the day before.
– Luis Urive, who was the original Sin Cara, will see his WWE contract expire on January 10th. Given that Hunico is currently working the Sin Cara character, nobody expects Urive to be re-signed to a new deal. However, the belief as of last week is that it wouldn’t be until March that he would be available to sign with a new promotion.
– As noted, Heath Slater has been given some time off to deal with personal issues. He’s expected back shortly into the new year.
