– Elias returned on WWE Raw this past Monday after the Ezekiel character was phased out several weeks ago. The Observer Newsletter reports that after he stepped into leading WWE’s creative team, dropping Ezekiel was one of Triple H’s first moves, however, Elias’ return had to be delayed until he had time to grow back his beard and hair.
– After privately being frustrated at WWE Raw’s ratings over the years, especially in the fall when the annual drop would happen with the return of NFL’s Monday Night Football, the Observer Newsletter reports that the network is “thrilled” with Raw’s viewership figures lately.
– Zelina Vega returned earlier this month to WWE, aligning herself with Legado Del Fantasma in their feud with Hit Row. Elektra Lopez was originally with the group, however, she was dropped in favor of Vega because the belief was that it was a “bad idea” to have Lopez vs. B-Fab on the main roster and WWE has been focusing on getting more women in the ring.
