When it was announced that she was changing her official title within the company, there were some speculations that Stephanie McMahon was still going to be heavily involved in the creative department in WWE, but it now appears that she truly has embraced her new role and is rarely involved with the writing for Monday Night Raw and Smackdown.
While there are still plans by WWE to push him, Big E Langston has essentially been neglected by the creative department over the last couple of weeks because the writers simply have not come up with anything for his character to do with Mark Henry being off television.
Rumor has it that Bray Wyatt has earned the trust of WWE officials backstage to the point where he is now being allowed to write his own promos. He still needs approval from the creative department before using them on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown, though.
One of the notable absences from Monday Night Raw this week was CM Punk. Since things were chaotic with the creative department, the script for the show was heavily edited at the last minute. Punk was initially supposed to work a qualifying match for Elimination Chamber 2014.
Internally, the match between Dolph Ziggler and Miz on Monday Night Raw was viewed as a filler match. The creative department simply added the Cleveland theme, in hopes of getting a little reaction from the live audience. WWE has no plans of making this program a big deal.
That big push for Wade Barrett isn't likely to take place any time soon. The feeling is that WWE is giving him television time each week, in order to fill up the three hours of Monday Night Raw. Plus, his segments are said to amuse the script writers in the creative department.
Since the two of them are extremely close friends, there are talks backstage that Batista has convinced WWE to bring Jimmy Wang Yang back for a temporary stint. Some are under the belief that he could be a mystery entrant at Royal Rumble 2014 this Sunday night.
Jimmy Wang Yang is teasing fans about a potential return at Royal Rumble 2014. The former WWE star was backstage at Monday Night Raw this past week, where he also teased a television appearance as well. Not very many people are expecting him to actually work the pay per view on Sunday.
Jimmy Wang Yang visited a WWE live in Cincinnati event over the weekend, and he has piqued the interest of wrestling fans when he posted on Twitter that he was going to be showing up on Monday Night Raw, which has led fans to speculate if he will actually appear on television.
