- The Road Dogg wrote on his Twitter that the Brock Lesnar - John Cena contract signing will open tonight's RAW.

- As noted earlier, WWE released Tough Enough winner Andy Leavine. Leaving posted a message on his Twitter following the release, writing, "On my way to acquire some much needed experience. I'm just gettin' started in this business."

- David Otunga accompanied fiancee Jennifer Hudson this morning in Chicago at the trial of the man accused of killing Hudson's mother, brother and nephew four years ago. I would assume that Otunga won't be at RAW tonight, although that is not confirmed. Reuters has a story about this morning's proceedings at this link, and refers to Otunga as "best known for his stint on VH1's reality show I Love New York."
