WWE wanted him to take some time off, so he was removed from the latest episode of Monday Night Raw. However, the third generation star has decided to step back into the ring. He worked the dark match main event at the Smackdown taping yesterday.

As many of you already know, wrestlers are required to work in NXT before they get a chance to work on the main roster in WWE. Apparently, the front office is trying that out with the creative department as well. Jimmy Jacobs is said to be leaving ROH, so he can start writing for the developmental program. There, he will work very closely with Triple H. If he does well, then he might start writing Monday Night Raw and Smackdown.

During a recent interview, Mr Anderson was asked about what it was like to lose his push while working for WWE. He stated that it was really unfair that the company punishes performers for getting injured. You lose your spot on the ladder when that happens, so a lot of wrestlers will try to work through the pain to prevent that from happening. Anderson also stated that he was treated a lot differently when he was switched to Monday Night Raw.

While quite a bit of interesting things took place during Monday Night Raw, one of the more heartwarming incidents was Triple H breaking character.

A quick glance around the internet wrestling community, and one can see that The Ascension has been receiving some heat from online fans. A big part of that is because they have been beating local wrestlers on Monday Night Raw and Smackdown. There is a reason why WWE is doing that, and it is on purpose.

Prior to the start of Monday Night Raw, Triple H decided to gather all the WWE performers together in the same room and give them a speech. He reiterated to the wrestlers that the Royal Rumble winner and Wrestlemania main event matches are not set in stone, so there is still time for everyone to step up and grab the brass ring. Many are under the impression that Roman Reigns will be handed the spots, so they might not be working as hard.
