– For those who have asked, the angle at the end of RAW where Triple H nearly “passed out” was just that – an angle. Triple H is just fine and it’s all part of the ongoing storyline. MANY people have asked so we felt the need to post an “update” here.
– Michael McGillicutty returned on this week’s RAW as the newest client of Paul Heyman. During a promo, Heyman said it was “a moment that we will look back on in ten years”. McGillicutty’s new ring name is Curtis Axel, which pays homage to Larry “The Ax” Hennig and Curt “Mr Perfect” Hennig. Larry was his grandfather while Curt was his father.
