- Hulk Hogan is expected to get a great reaction at Monday's RAW from Portland as it will be his first show in Portland since a November 14th, 1991 match against Ric Flair.

- In an update on Ricky Steamboat's WWE status, he's no longer working for WWE full-time and wasn't cut but is just working under a Legends contract, which is usually $10,000 per year. Steamboat's regular job as a brand ambassador was indeed eliminated.

- Below are some recent WWE attendance figures:

* August 2nd in Lubbock, TX drew 5,400 fans
* August 3rd in San Antonio, TX drew 4,000 fans
* August 4th in Austin, TX drew 10,000 fans for RAW
