- Off the heels of Rusev’ surprise return at Raw last night, PWInsider.com noted the following:
“WWE had Rusev drive from Nashville, where he lives, to prevent his return from leaking and then hid him until right before he was to come to the ring.”
- After missing Raw last night, PWInsider is reporting that Vince McMahon will be in Atlanta for tonight’s SmackDown LIVE. Both Eric Bischoff and Michael Hayes will be working under the boss tonight.
- Kevin Owens is not backstage in Atlanta although WWE could be keeping his appearance a surprise. As we reported, there has been talk of Owens moving back to NXT in the near future.
