– Rey Mysterio was not at this week’s RAW or SmackDown tapings. His contract is expiring in a few months and there’s been some talk that he’ll be leaving WWE to work for the new AAA TV series that will premiere the El Rey Network later this year. Mysterio’s longtime friend Konnan is heavily involved in the project, which begins filming this summer in Los Angeles.
– This week’s SmackDown pre and post show panel will be hosted by Josh Mathews, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Booker T and Alex Riley.
– Steve Austin noted on Twitter that his new “Broken Skull Challenge” reality series on CMT begins filming this week.
