Based on their kayfabe article online, WWE has effectively written Paige off of television. The reason for doing this is because she needs to miss some time to film her part in an upcoming movie. There has been no word about how long she is expected to be gone, but the belief is that she will be back in time to work her title match against Nikki Bella at Extreme Rules. She will only miss episodes of Monday Night Raw.

There was actually a good amount of discussion throughout the afternoon about whether or not Michael Cole would be doing commentary on Monday Night Raw. Since people backstage were so divided, the decision was made to keep him off of television this week, in order to sell how brutal the beating from Brock Lesnar was. Many in WWE felt that it would be downplaying his impact if Cole were to be able to return to television so soon.

One of the ideas being thrown around by the creative department right now is do a story line where Michael Cole threatens to sue Brock Lesnar for the injuries that he suffered on the previous episode of Monday Night Raw. WWE might do a thing where Paul Heyman would beg and plead with Cole to drop the charges. The move would give Heyman something to do on television, and it would continue the story line for Lesnar.

Earlier in the day, Tamina Snuka was spotted in Austin, the site of Monday Night Raw. She is scheduled to be backstage, which means that her return to television might take place tonight. For those that are not aware, she has been sidelined for much of the past year because of a torn ACL injury. No word yet on how WWE is planning to utilize her, but there is a chance she might be held out because Nikki Bella is working with Naomi at the moment.

After working diligently over the last year to recover from a torn ACL, Tamina Snuka is ready to go back on the road for WWE. No word on the exact date of her return, but she is booked for the upcoming tour of Europe, which begins on April 8. Since she is being brought along, there is a very good chance that her comeback to television takes place on the episode of Monday Night Raw that is being filmed on April 13 in London.

Since he is coming off of a huge match with Undertaker at Wrestlemania, many were under the assumption that Bray Wyatt was going to be featured prominently on Monday Night Raw as a way to capitalize on the momentum. However, WWE opted to keep him off television instead. His injury is the biggest reason for that, as management does not want to jeopardize his future. Wyatt may be kept out until after Extreme Rules.

Unless things become chaotic backstage, it appears that Charlotte is more than likely going to make her main roster debut on the episode of Monday Night Raw on the night following Wrestlemania. Ric Flair is supposed to be in attendance during the entire weekend, so that would make it quite convenient for the front office to have him appearing on television to introduce his daughter to fans who do not generally keep up with NXT.

At a live event in Milwaukee over the weekend, Brad Maddox made his return to WWE. Often times, management likes to test things out at these events to gauge what the audience reaction would be before doing it on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown. Based on the lackluster reaction and the poor quality of the match, the front office has much to work on before doing the Maddox return on television.

While his vignettes have been playing on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown for what seems like an eternity now, WWE has no plans on bringing Sheamus back to television just yet. The idea being penciled in at the moment is to have him make his comeback at Wrestlemania itself. Management is still trying to decide which match he will be involved in. The two choices are the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal and the ladder match.

Monday Night Raw is being held in New Jersey tonight, and a very familiar face is backstage at the moment. AJ Lee is scheduled to make her return to WWE this week. The belief is that she will end up teaming up with Paige at Wrestlemania to take on Nikki Bella and Brie Bella. Unless plans are changed during the day, the program should be started on television tonight. AJ recently made headlines by bashing Stephanie McMahon and the company.
