– We noted before that Ric Flair revealed on his podcast that Stardust is out of action with a neck injury, which apparently happened during the December 7th WWE RAW match against Jack Swagger. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Stardust was cleared to return on Monday but he did not work RAW or Super SmackDown.

– Regarding King Barrett’s status, he’s been appearing on WWE TV in segments with the League of Nations but obviously has had a limited role. The Observer reports that Barrett’s neck injury is said to be pretty serious but no other details were available. Barrett last worked the 16-man elimination match on the December 7th RAW and then the 16-man match at the Tribute to The Troops tapings on December 8th.
