– The current plan going into the 1,000th episode of WWE RAW is for John Cena to be the first man to cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase and not win, with the WWE Championship remaining on CM Punk.

– Triple H is high up on Michael McGillicutty with the feeling that he could be a potential star with the right push. Meanwhile, in terms of the Divas in developmental, Raquel Diaz (Shaul Guerrero), Paige (Saraya-Jade Bevis) and Sofia Cortez (Ivelisse Velez) are the top ones getting rave reviews from the company for their work. The feeling is that Paige and Sofia are better than most on the roster and that Paige could be a huge star for the company due to her age, in-ring ability and prior training.
