While all of the details of his contract have yet to be revealed, one interesting information on the pact between Shane McMahon and WWE has made it to the surface. The former vice president of World Wrestling Entertainment is being paid $120,000 for his appearances on Monday Night Raw before his big Hell in a Cell steel cage match at Wrestlemania against the Undertaker. That's more than what some full time performers are being paid.

In a rather interesting move, WWE is now encouraging fans that attend live events to dress up as their favorite wrestlers and legends. This comes shortly after Vince McMahon grew irate over Dwayne Johnson breaking away from the script on a recent episode of Monday Night Raw and putting focus on fans that were dressed as Randy Savage and Hulk Hogan, the latter of which has been banned from the company because of racial comments.

On Monday Night Raw, Ryback ran out and attacked the Wyatt Family as they were involved in a match with the Social Outcasts. There is a chance that he could be officially added to the stable, as WWE had Heath Slater filming a backstage interview claiming that the Big Guy was definitely a part of their crew. It would be an interesting move and would give Ryback a story line to work with.

Later on tonight, Ric Flair is going to be making a special appearance on Monday Night Raw. WWE brought him in for a segment, which will most likely involve his daughter, Charlotte, and Paige. The move is a rather interesting one because Flair was a bit bothered by the fact that the creative department used the death of his son, Reid Flair, to further the story line.

There was a bit of confusion last night in regards to the whereabouts of Sting. WWE posted on their official website that the legendary performer was going to be kicking off Monday Night Raw with a major announcement. That never happened. Sources are saying that the former world heavyweight champion was already back at home in Dallas. He was resting and healing up from his injuries.

When you enter a wrestling ring, there's a chance of injury. That possibility goes up even higher when you are 56 years old and have spent 30 years doing it. At Night of Champions, Sting suffered some sort of injury. No official announcement has been made, but the belief is that it is either a neck or spinal injury. The legend is still booked for another appearance on Monday Night Raw, but those plans might be changed.

Initially, Sting was supposed to have been off on Labor Day. However, WWE changed up their script and decided that he would be flown in for Monday Night Raw tonight. Doing that also caused the front office to change up other plans. They have decided to save the return of Kane, who was originally scheduled to be back tonight, for another time. More than likely, he will be back next week.

Up until Thursday, there were no plans by WWE to use Sting at the next episode of Monday Night Raw. By the end of the day, the front office had to make some phone calls in order to arrange travel for the former world heavyweight champion. He is now expected to be in Baltimore in a few days and make an appearance on the show. More than likely, the Stinger is going to be doing a segment with Seth Rollins.

While he constantly gets bashed by fans for the scripted promos that he recites each week on Monday Night Raw, those in the industry feel that John Cena is one of the best when it comes to cutting old school style promos where no scripts are involved. He only needs bullet points, which is how they did it in the old days. Interestingly enough, it is being said that Xavier Woods is the only one that can rival Cena in this category.

For those of you that are wondering how Sting made his way into the ring to surprise and attack Seth Rollins on Monday Night Raw, it wasn't magic or anything. During the commercial break, WWE turned down the lights in the arena and played a video to distract the audience. The WCW legend was covered in a dark cloth and surrounded by stage workers. That was how he sneaked into the ring, and that is why his face paint was a bit smeared.
