– WWE Hall of Famer Sgt. Slaughter was released from a hospital last week after being admitted on the weekend of August 8th for a reoccurring bleeding ulcer. Slaughter wrote on Facebook: “My Doctor finally tapped out & said I could leave the hospital, so I let him out of the Cobra Clutch! Thank you ALL for your Concern & Well Wishes! As you were & Carry On.”
– It was stated on Tuesday’s episode of WWE Main Event that Ryback is out with an injury. Prior to facing Curtis Axel, Adam Rose told Axel in a backstage segment that he’s sorry to hear about Ryback’s injury.
Ryback wrote the day before on Twitter “that he was going away for a while to get some stuff fixed.” The message also featured an image of a Ryback action figure standing over a CM Punk action figure. He deleted the message shortly thereafter.
