Billy Gunn
The Usos were given the tag team championship recently, so that WWE could help to control the hostile audience at Monday Night Raw. Another reason for the change could be the health of Road Dogg and Billy Gunn. Both guys are said to be banged up a bit, as they ended up working a lot more matches that they initially thought they would.

Sean Waltman
"I got a sense he wasn't well. It was sad to me. He was kind of hunched over. He used to have such great posture. You just had this sense that he wasn't well. But he was in great spirits. He came up to (other wrestlers) and gave them hugs." - Sean Waltman discusses the health of the Ultimate Warrior during Wrestlemania 30 weekend

Bret Hart
"He seemed good, he seemed happy for sure. I had a sense his health wasn't great. He seemed a little frail. He seemed a little less indestructible than he used to be. I don't think it would be a surprise to know he took steroids for a long time and I don't know if he ever stopped." - Bret Hart discusses steroid use by the Ultimate Warrior

CM Punk

"So Punk allegedly walked out & quit WWE. Interesting. It's impossible 2 understand the toll that job can have on you-unless you've lived it. A 'screw you' from Punk? NO. Punk's gotta prioritize his own sanity & health. Sometimes WWE isn't conducive to those two things. From my experience- When you're in constant physical pain, frustrated the majority of the time, & resent what u love, things have to change."
