* If Chris Jericho actually does leave WWE to tour with his band Fozzy this summer, it's expected that he will return to the company full-time once the tour is over.
* As noted previously, Beth Phoenix's injury on Raw Monday was storyline and was intended to set up Kharma's return to TV. WWE officials have wanted to bring Kharma back and make her a dominant champion from the start, but felt that Kharma vs. Phoenix is a high profile match that should be saved for down the line. No word yet on when the company plans to have a Kharma vs. Phoenix match.
As noted earlier in the week, one idea was to have Kharma destroy Nikki Bella for the Divas Title at either the Extreme Rules PPV or on Raw the day after. If Nikki doesn't drop the title by Monday, it's a sign that she and sister Brie have signed contract extensions with WWE.
