– WWE actually had a reference to Mexican legend Hector Garza passing away on their May 27th RAW broadcast. Ricardo Rodriguez snuck a mention into his Alberto Del Rio ring introduction and almost nobody recognized it because it was in Spanish.
– At one point, WWE was going to do Sheamus vs. Wade Barrett for the Intercontinental Title on last night’s episode of Main Event. That match was changed to Sheamus vs. Antonio Cesaro, likely because Barrett left for Japan this week to do promotional work for WWE.
