Since the company no longer has the expensive services of the Great Khali, they are forced to find other wrestlers to send to India to promote. The latest person to be sent to that country is Mark Henry, and he is on his way there this week. His promotional duties aren't for an upcoming tour, however.

Since Stephen Amell is a Hollywood star, some are confused as to why WWE would choose someone lower on the card to work with him. The reason is because Stardust is a very competent performer who management trusts. Plus, his character is more likely to draw in the general audience because it is quite unique.
