- The Wrestling Observer reported last week that with the ratings success of the weekly "Legends" segments on Raw, WWE officials are strongly considering making the feature routine by having one former Superstar brought back on every show. PWInsider.com reports Monday that internally, the belief is that the re-emergence of former talent such as Vader, Sycho Sid and Bob Backlund caused part of a lapsed wrestling audience to tune in to WWE programming again. Should WWE continue the angle, names most likely to resurface are Tatanka, Steve Blackman and Big Daddy V. Those three and several other alumnus were contacted to appear on Raw 1,000, but WWE officials ultimately changed their minds and limited the Heath Slater gang beating to the APA and those who had already participated in the storyline.

- The Princess Bride, featuring WWE Hall of Famer Andre the Giant in a starring role, will be screened for free this Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. at McCarren Park in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

- Conspicuous by his absence last week on Raw 1,000 during the Brothers of Destruction reunion between The Undertaker and Kane was longtime manager Paul Bearer. When Bearer last appeared on Raw in April, he was kidnapped by Randy Orton and then stuck in a storage freezer while strapped to a wheelchair. Kane later came for Bearer, only to roll him back into the freezer and say, "I'm saving you...from me." A Twitter user pondered whether Bearer's noticeable absence stemmed from the legendary manager still being locked up in the freezer. Bearer responded, "Yeah..... still in the freezer, dumb ass."

Bearer also said of his whereabouts, "I am not going to waste my time playing your silly "where were you" games. I never said I would appear, not scheduled, enjoyed being home."
