— WWE Divas Champion Maryse is expected to be healthy enough to return to the ring in a few weeks. Her dislocated kneecap injury and Divas title situation were not addressed at last week’s double SmackDown taping, so they’ll be staying on course with their plans for her.
— The idea of a Trish Stratus vs. Michelle McCool match at WrestleMania was discussed at a creative meeting last week. Many felt a Beth Phoenix vs. Stratus match would be good, but officials felt they’ve done it already with the mixed tag match a few weeks ago. After Stratus’ performance in her match on Raw, the feeling is that she’s still good enough to pull out a decent match with McCool that would be entertaining. There is also hope that the rub from Stratus would help McCool get over.
— WWE DVD distributer Genius Products is in serious financial peril after being de-listed for the over the counter board after the company failed to release a third quarter fiscal report.
