- We noted before that WWE replaced CM Punk with John Cena in a banner on the WWE App yesterday. Punk was also replaced in the opening video for RAW last night, replaced with a shot of masked Kane. WWE also removed a clip of Punk talking about Paul Heyman from a preview for WWE Countdown on the WWE Network.
- Morale was low backstage at last night's RAW. There was a feeling among wrestlers that Punk walking out was going to be a loss for the whole locker room since he's always speaking up for everyone. There was also a feeling that as much talk as there has been about potential WrestleMania XXX creative changes in the past week, there wasn't any real sign of that.
- A hot topic among WWE's production team is how much more additional work they will have with the Network launching, especially if SmackDown is moved to a live broadcast on Tuesday nights.
