- Ryback's opponents on this week's SmackDown are Jared Walker and Frankie Valencia, known as Blk Jeez and Brian Hardy on the Maryland independent wrestling scene.
- Beginning with Vader, WWE was set to bring back a former RAW main eventer to wrestle a match each week leading up to the 1,000th RAW in July. They have reportedly dropped that idea already. While Roddy Piper and Mick Foley appeared on RAW this week, neither of them wrestled.
- Responding to a fan who said she should get a WWE contract, former WWE Diva Lauren C. Mayhew told them to start a tweet campaign to get her brought back.
Mayhew continues to have an active music and TV career with a new role on Showtime's Dexter that she began filming this week. She began ring announcing for WWE in 2009, shortly after Lilian Garcia left. Her short-term contract expired in late 2009 and was not renewed as the two sides could not agree on a new deal.
