Update: Evan Bourne Not At SmackDown, Muppets Bump JR
Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterIn an update from earlier, The Wrestling Observer reported that they believe Evan Bourne has already been sent home by WWE so 'Air Boom' may not be losing the tag-team titles tonight. It's also possible they are really pissed off at him and will announce the failure publicly on SmackDown and then strip them of the titles. We shall see later, but the press release sent out earlier was interesting to say the least.
Numerous people were confused as to why they didn't have 'Air Boom' drop the titles on RAW. They knew about the failure well before he appeared on TV.
The Jim Ross-Michael Cole segment was cut from RAW because the Muppets were contractually guaranteed to get all of their segments in.
