– With the exception of John Morrison and a few others, there weren’t a lot of people within WWE sad to see Melina go because of the reputation she had developed. The same deal applies for Gail Kim to an extent. Officials felt that Kim speaking out was getting the other Divas riled up.
– A Beth Phoenix vs. Kelly Kelly rematch for the Divas Title is expected for September’s Night of Champions pay-per-view from Buffalo, where Phoenix grew up.
– All the younger WWE talents were backstage at RAW watching the segment with CM Punk and Kevin Nash on monitors. Punk is seen as a kind of hero to some of the younger guys because he puts them over and speaks for them since they can’t say what he gets away with saying. Nash is in great shape but with his history of knee operations, he wasn’t walking very well. The feeling is that a CM Punk vs. Kevin Nash match won’t be too pretty.
