Curtis Axel could not compete at the Hell In A Cell pay-per-view due to a hip flexor injury he suffered at the Monday Night Raw telecast prior to the pay-per-view. Axel was supposed to defend his Intercontinental title against Big E Langston but was pulled from the HIAC pay-per-view before the Smackdown show prior to the event. No word on how long he will be out of action. As for manager Paul Heyman, he will be off WWE television, as well, possibly until Brock Lesnar's return for Wrestlemania.

Roman Reigns of The Shield may undergo a face-turn and possibly feud with Seth Rollins and U.S. champion Dean Ambrose, according to Wrestlezone.com. A possible change in allegiance was teased on this week's Friday Night Smackdown after Ambrose reminded his stablemates that he was the only one holding a title. A shake-up in The Shield will not be immediate, as they will be a part of a possible Fatal Four-Way Tag Team title match at the Survivor Series PPV against the tag team champions Cody Rhodes and Goldust, The Usos, and the Real Americans.

Damien Sandow is receiving high praise for his Monday Night Raw match against John Cena. Sandow cashed in his Money In The Bank (MITB) suitcase after attacking Cena, but tapped out to the newly-crowned world champion. It was reportedly Vince McMahon's idea for Sandow to cash in the MITB suitcase due to the Raw telecast going head-to-head against Major League Baseball's World Series and National Football League's Monday Night Football.

It appears Shawn Michaels may not return to the ring as was speculated a few weeks ago, with no plans for him to be on WWE television in the near future. Rumors were circulating that Michaels would compete in the ring once again, but his feud with Daniel Bryan came to an end on Monday Night Raw when Bryan cinched the "Yes!" lock on Michaels.

Former San Diego Charger and Buffalo Bill Shawne Merriman recently told TMZ that, despite the rumors, he was not trying out for the WWE and that he came to the WWE Performance Center as a courtesy to WWE executive Triple H, who invited the retired National Football League linebacker to check out the company's new facility.

Wrestling Observer Radio's Dave Meltzer reported the Dixie Family is looking to sell the Impact Wrestling promotion, with interest from Eric Bischoff, Jeff Jarrett, Viacom, and WWE. According to Brian Elliott, editor of the Fighting Spirit Magazine in the UK, the Carter family has been sending out "feelers" to potential buyers for the wrestling promotion company and are hoping to create a bidding war much like the one created after Fusient Media attempted to buy WCW.

Impact Wrestling has restructured of late, with Bischoff no longer with the company since their last pay-per-view. John Gaburick and Jeff Jarrett are now handling the overall direction of the company's product, with Matt Conway and Dave Lagana handling the writing of the shows.
