- After last night’s WWE RAW ended in East Rutherford, New Jersey, John Cena got on the mic and gave props to the crowd. Cena then laid the WWE Title out in the ring and said that it was for the fans. Cena got a massive pop. Cena said they usually play music to end the show, but tonight, the fans were the music. He left the ring while the whole crowd hummed Fandango’s theme again. Fandango’s music hit and the crowd went nuts. The show closed with one final “we are awesome!” chant.
- CM Punk was kept off last night’s RAW to sell his loss to The Undertaker and because he’s banged up. As noted, he will be on next week’s RAW.
- The Rock’s torn abductor and abdominal muscles injury is reportedly a legitimate injury. The story is that Rock left WrestleMania abruptly after learning of the injury. He immediately went home to get treatment because he has to film Hercules soon.
There was initially heat on The Rock because many within WWE were not aware of the injury. The heat is gone although there was grumbling among some wrestlers that if they can work hurt, Rock could have at least came out and done a promo. WWE was not informed of Rock’s injury until well into Monday afternoon, causing mass re-writes to RAW and the chaos that comes along with it.
