– WWE Hall of Famer Harley Race was backstage for RAW 1000 but not used.
– Derek Foore, the 2010 NAIA national wrestling champion at 197 lbs from Notre Dame, is now using the ring name Chad Baxter in WWE developmental. Foore has a resemblance to a young Kurt Angle and was signed by Gerald Brisco. Marcus Anthony, a large bodybuilder type from OVW, is using the name Lincoln Broderick.
– We noted before that Kelly Kelly was set to be brought back for RAW 1000 but did not appear on TV. As of this past weekend, she had not informed WWE of a time when she was going to come back or any future plans asking for more time off. Some people in the company even thought this would be her return full-time but that was never the plan.
– Word on Kharma’s WWE departure is that she had been in Florida training for her return to action but got the knock for being out of shape, hard to work with and stubborn about suggestions of how they wanted to change her character. She had been losing weight since we last saw her.
