- During the finals of the No. 1 Tag Team Title No. 1 Contenders' Tournament on Raw Monday, broadcaster Jim Ross acknowledged participant Rey Mysterio's past tag team partnerships with Konnan and Juventud Guerrera. When it was brought to Konnan's attention on Twitter, he responded, "wow i must not be blackballed..thats a first."
Konnan is believed to be considered persona non grata within WWE after bolting from the promotion in 1992 following a disagreement with Vince McMahon. The WWE chief previously had big plans for Konnan, as he had spent over $10,000 on an elaborate outfit for him to wear as the futuristic character Max Moon.
