- Raw Preview (HBK Appreciation Night): WWE is taping this week’s edition of Raw (06 August 2012) from The AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX. The event is being billed as Shawn Michaels Appreciation Night, however it’s likely anything that is done with the Appreciation Night will not happen on TV. WWE is only advertising the Appreciation Night locally, and has not been promoting it on TV.
While neither have been confirmed to make TV appearances, both Triple H and Brock Lesnar are being advertised for tonight’s show.
- Cody Rhodes News: SuperLuchas.net reported a few months back that Cody Rhodes had failed a WWE Wellness test but was not suspended because he provided a valid prescription for whatever he tested positive for. Cody commented on those reports last night via Twitter:

- Kharma Updates: Following her recent release from WWE, former WWE talent Kharma is working hard to get back into shape with hopes of jump-starting her wrestling career.
TMZ.com is reporting that Kharma “fell into a deep depression” after suffering a miscarriage last year and put on so much weight that she was unable to return to WWE.
Kharma says she is now motivated to get back into ring shape and has hired a team of therapists and fitness experts to help her achieve her goal. She has been in touch with multiple production companies to document her experience getting back in shape and returning to the spotlight with hopes of landing a TV deal and using the footage for a reality show.
- Incident with WWE Diva: WWE Diva Rosa Mendez was found crying in a bathroom at the San Antonio airport late Sunday evening by a fellow traveler who called police for her. When police arrived, Rosa (a/k/a Milena Roucka) told them her fiance had “hit her several times” in Las Vegas, where she had just flown from. She went on to tell police that she was afraid her fiance, Andy Slocum, a former WWE talent who wrestled very briefly as Jackson Andrews on Raw, would “try and kill her.”
WWE representative told TMZ, “Milena Roucka contacted a WWE Talent Relations representative this morning to notify WWE that, upon her arrival in San Antonio last evening, she contacted police at the airport to report alleged domestic abuse that occurred just prior to her flight.”
